Wreckers!!

  1. Things are slowly moving on after our fire 4 weeks ago tonight. Amongst other jobs I dug a trench for a new power cable today across the yard and found an old steel water pipe still connected :banghead:

    I had to resort to the "Victorian concrete breaker" in one place as well :cry::inpain:

    2 power breakers were lost in the fire :oops:

    Surprisingly no damage was done to the tyres or the diffs, dented the side bar about 1/2 inch. He only stopped when the project manager stood in front of him shouting at him. He had a straight run and didn’t need to use the wheel wash but he didn’t want to wait 2 mins whilst a lorry came through the gates . Had to get a wrecker in to lift it up - a driver of 22yrs and no sence .

    To be fair, it could be either. Ive noticed that utter stupidity is not fussy about age.....

    You see it all the time, it is incredible. To be honest I’ve got far less compassion for idiots that are old enough to know better.
    Youngsters don’t know any better, but hopefully will learn, but sadly some of them will end up as old idiots that have not learnt from their mistakes!

    Witnessed a lad this year, who drove into a field I was in, he was a bit lost, but thought he needed to get past me, I was parked in the track being loaded. Rather than getting out and asking me to move, at which point I’d have told him he was in the wrong place, he reversed painfully back and tried to get round me another way, he came to a fairly abrupt halt once he’d hit a tree and bent pretty much everything on the o/s of the cab on the near new JD he was piloting.......
    When I went to see if he was ok, I just couldn’t help feeling sorry for him, I helped him out of his muddle the best I could and that was that. Just hope he learns?....

    But when you have to tow out an 8 wheeler, piloted by a guy in his fifties, who has taken a wrong turn, along a track that’s virtually un-passable, where other trucks are ‘supposed’ to have gone before him, but clearly hadn’t, then driven that truck until he was completely bogged and slipping in a huge dyke......you do have to wonder if there’s any hope for him, and how he’s made it this far without gaining brains..............:banghead:

    I was behind car transporter with a top deck full of new minis some yrs back on a B road of low trees .You can imagine how that panned out...Ding Bang Boing to top it off a driver coming the other road said he was flashing his lights at the driver and said driver flashed and waved back oblivious to the carnage behind...:eek::scratchhead::scratchhead::)

    I tend to find 8 wheeler drivers to be the lowest of the low. Certainly round these parts. I had a 8 wheeler come to drop chicken muck off in a wet ish field. Told him to reverse in up to the lump, that way he would be pointing towards the gate should he get stuck and would be able to empty. Obviously turning would be a no no especially full.

    He totally ignored me, drove in tried to turn and got stuck.:banghead:

    Went to pull him backwards so he would be closer to the lump and told him I would beep my horn when we were close enough. Daft t##t didn't stop when I beeped the horn and reversed straight into my brand new merlo. Went to the cab to find out what the hell he was up to only to find him sat in there with the window up. How the f##k was he gonna hear the beep.:banghead::banghead::banghead:

    Anyway rant over, needed to get that off my chest.
