    Default I think I may have saved a few lives today

    I had a guy call and talk to me about building him a new trailer, we go over the details and formalities, settle on the price and delivery date, every things going good at this point. He then asks the one question I try to avoid, "will you take my old trailer as a trade in?". I tell him that I try not to deal in used items if I can help it, but instead of holding my ground I cave and tell him to bring it by so I can look at it. After seeing this "trailer", I had no choice but to take it off the guy's hands. I think I may have saved a few lives by getting this thing off the road and sent to the grave it sorely needs. I am totally amazed at what people will drag down the road without realizing how much danger they are creating for the rest of us driving down the road, and even more amazed the police haven't stopped him before.

    Why would he put drag slicks on a trailer?



    So are you going to set this thing on fire to burn the wood off and then drag it to the scrapyard?

    That's just too much.

    I wonder how many tons of sand or rocks he normally carried in it.

    Hmm, there's a saying along the lines of you will always do well by doing good.

    You have done good. I'm sure you will do well.
