Stuff like that amazes me. Yesterday I saw a small car with two
sheets of OSB subfloor on the roof and a guy's hands sticking through
the open sunroof to hold them in place. I had an instantaneous flash
of the guy getting his fingers sheared off when the idiot-buddy
driving stepped on the brakes.
Self-cleaning gene pool.
Not OSB but last evening on a 50mph road I came upon a couple of people
putting a mattress and box spring back on the roof. Stopped right in the
middle of the lane. Guess that yarn wasn't quite up to it...if there was
even that used.
I once saw a car with mattress on top - uncovered - driving down the
highway on a nasty winter day, salt spray and slush flying everywhere.
You couldn't put enough sheets on that mattress for me to sleep on it.
heck I saw too tiny cars stopped just before pittsburghs liberty
tunnels, each load had to be about 20 feet high, tunnel clearance
about 15 feet. one load had blown off stopping traffic, I saw the
police coming and wondering what the officers would say........
I've seen worse than that, much worse -- 30-something woman driving,
pre-adolescent kid sitting on top of the front seat with his head sticking out
of the sunroof. Roof right at neck level. Caught up with them at a traffic
light and asked the driver to imagine what would happen to her child if she
had to make a sudden stop. She glared at me, but at least she made the kid
A guy I work with was a terror as a teenager. He went into a discount
department store and took a boom box out of the carton, loaded it with
batteries and put it on his shoulder, blaring rock music. The manager
yelled "get that thing out of here" So he did.
When a worked for a electric utility, I was told of a guy that bought
a 50 inch TV and loaded it up in his pickup truck without tying it
It blew off. :-)
After that the company forbid "DIY" deliveries.
