101 stupid trucker conversations, as in we know the answer before it is even asked.

No 1. On taking unit with trailer attached into truck dealership to be serviced overnight with naturally the trailer needing to be dropped off.

' Trailer empty Sir?'

Has anyone EVER taken an empty trailer in!
Rolling Eyes

Cue, desperately trying to find some hard ground to drop it on so it hasn't dropped on its haunches overnight! Laughing

Any more?

Just to prove the rule, heres an exception Laughing

I dropped a unit for service with an empty trailer behind it a couple of months back. The news came as a last minute diversion while on my way back to the yard during one of my Scania days.


How we were able to spare an empty trailer I don't know Rolling Eyes

My best was a classic when delivering to a remote village west of Cork. Not with just on person but with everyone in the village, or so it seemed.

Local: Did you bring that truck all the way from England?

Me: I did.

Pause.

Local: Did you come on the ferry?.

Another whilst trying to turn around after tipping on a building site again in the Emerald Isle.

Me to banksman: Whatever you do don't let me run over that angle iron. (welded onto 8x4 steel sheets lying on the ground)


Bankman: OK Come on come on come on BANG!!!! come on.

Me: I asked you to look out for that angle iron.

Banksman: Oh Jeus, I thought you'd brush it aside.

Another classic is a T.M one. Rolling Eyes 'You don't need a break before you get yours into the RDC do you?' said in a rather squeaky stressful voice.'' I know you do, BUT I'm in the poo if we don't get it there!

Naturally we DO need a 45! Laughing

This one is a stupid trucker conversation one has with oneself! Rolling Eyes As in yesterday after booking in at Iceland Livingston.

It starts with an, if I get a good tip I might just get back to the yard or Wetherby at least. 1/2 hour later-well maybe Leeming Bar, 1/2 later still, well maybe Scotch Corner, 1/2 later, well maybe top of Stainmore on A66, 1/2hr later, maybe Penrith, 1/2 later I discuss with a McBurney's driver just how come they go so fast!Laughing : 3hrs in Evil or Very Mad, I might not even get out of *sausages* Jockland at this rate! Brick Wall Fit Brick Wall Fit ( I eventually got to Penrith after 3hrs at Iceland and 1 1/2hrs at Lidl)

Most truckers play this mind game of 'how far we can get'-very few are accurate at the end of the day! Laughing
