If it makes you feel any better:

Last summer, I was heading donw Eureka Rd, right in front of Home Depot. Guy pulls out in brand new, waxed H2, nice set of rims, etc. Has a little 10' at the most, tilting dump type trailer behind him loaded up with bags of play sand on a skid. He makes the left turn a round on divided type highway and goes to light. Light turns green, he takes off, trailer unlocks and goes up in the air, and he dumps his whole load. He looks back in his mirror after going 50 or so yards, slams it in reverse backs up fast, jackknives the trailer into the side of the H2, blowing a tire. Funniest sh!t I've seen in a long time.

If I'm ever in Ft Lauderdale can I please buy you drinks all night long and you just tell me all your stories.

This is some of the funniest sh*t I've ever read on OSO.

Maybe Steve will give you your own forum

This thread is replacing the wives/GF thread as my favorite on OSO.

oh man.. this has me rolling.. I have seen plenty of people do the same exact thing...

The only question I came up with, and someone else said it... why where you towing 2 PWC's with a freightliner? A bit overkill isnt it

I'm glad my pain entertains so many! It's incredible, since I was a kid this is how it always went. Never just 1 incident. Always 3 or at a time.
The worst part. While putting it back on the trailer I had a couple people that wanted to help. When you do something like this, they automatically think you are a complete and total moron and give you all kinds of advice. Then they talk to you like you have never done anything like this in your life. The one guys says. "Once you put it in the water, make sure you put a ripe on it and tie it to the dock". Then I'm in the truck and they all want to guide me, they are standing there waving their hands directing me. Meanwhile, I can barely see them. Their blocking traffic like "watch out for this guy"! Then the guy wants to show me how to tie the rope. I got more advice. Because I already felt like a jerk, all I could do was stand there and take it and thank them.
