Thumbs down My Monday morning episode

Standing on the dock talking to one of my drivers and WHAMMO - sounded like a freight train hit the building. 40,000 lbs of steel ball bearings hitting the ground. The landing gear went right through the ground. BH

Landing gear= Semi trailer landing gear for dollying trailer.
Drivers=truck drivers
ball bearings=I'm guessing the truck was loaded with them?
right through to the floor=aforementioned landing gear on semi trailer broke through something normally very solid


Just trying to decode the message.
