Truck Trouble

Lady wasn't the only thing that got stuck last week, we had adventures with a delivery truck.

Our driveway is a little long. It has a slight curve in it and a slight hill. Last Thursday, a delivery truck (who was bringing us an envelop that was kind of junk mail) when backing out, appeared to not notice the curve and drove right into the snowbank and got himself really, really stuck.

Then he was really, really mad. There were definitely some HBO words said. He directed some of these toward the Man. He made comments about how he should have shovelled more. The Man said nothing and then spent an hour (when he was to be working) trying to help this guy out. Lady would have probably told him off and left him to figure it out alone. To defend our lane - as mentioned, it has a curve you can't drive it straight; where the guy ended up would have been well into the grass if there was no snow and finally, the UPS truck comes frequently (Lady does most of her shopping via Amazon) and that truck has never gotten stuck.

The stuck truck

In the end, a neighbour drove by (there are only 2 who live past us on our road) and he stopped. He then drove home to get a cable so he could tow the stuck truck out.

The whole thing took about an hour. Lady watched it through the front window using her binoculars. We dogs barked a lot, and then we had to bark at the back door because the fox came. We are sure if this truck has to come again, he won't come up our driveway!

  1. maybe that was the punishment for bringing junk mail do you? LOL

    ...wait... junk mail came by courier? He deserved everything he got. Man didn't deserve what he had to do though. Tsk. some folks... Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  3. And this is what happens when you don't pay attention to your driving. He should have stopped his vehicle a ways back and walked a wee bit.

  4. That was just a dumb driver! Sheesh. The Man was nice to help out.

  5. Lee and Phod I am glad you barked...that man had no business using HBO words at your
    Hugs HiC

  6. To get THAT stuck, he must have been backing up way too fast. He should have been more grateful for any help he got.

  7. I have a drive that slants slightly uphill to the gate. I had TWO trucks get stuck this year and churn my yard up, it is a MESS, and yes, I'm angry about it. UGH. So glad it is drier now, but we are getting more rain this weekend.

  8. A poor driver who blames everyone else for his inability to drive carefully.

  9. we think that driver needs to go back and get
    some lessons in customer service and driver training.
    duh guy can't drive

  10. That truck guy made his own mess. The Man and the Neighbor were super-nice to help him at all!

    Love and licks,

  11. We know what that's like! Our driveway is on a hill and has a curve in it too. Once, Dad's car (which wasn't even turned on) just slid down it and barely missed hitting ghostwriter's car. Countless times people (especially my ghostwriter!) have backed up and knocked over the snow plow markers. She's also backed into a big snow pile at the bottom and then got stuck. A couple times someone knocked over the yield sign at the bottom too! (That wasn't ghostwriter, though.) Winter can sure be a challenge!

    Your Dad and your neighbor were sure nice to help that deliver guy out.

  12. We had a UPS truck get stuck in our drive a few years ago during a storm. Took me forever to get home from work and there he was blocking the driveway

  14. Now I think most people do there shopping by Amazon

  15. Oh, I would have barked my arse off!! That sounds like tons of excitement! Luckily (or not luckily, I say, cause I loves snow), we don't get snow, so the drivers have no problems. Which is good, cause I thinks Ma single handedly keeps Jeff Bezos in business!
    That driver is lucky the MAN is such a nice guy....Ma would have done the same as your Lady! BOL

  16. We have a long curvy driveway too but luckily have never had a delivery truck get stuck. The delivery guys usually park at the end of our driveway and walk up if there is snow on the ground.
