I don’t want to overdo the Curbside Captions, but this one seemed a good fit for our Truck Saturday theme. I think that the fertile imaginations of our readers will come up with some good ones here. So, load us up with your best captions!

“My foot just slipped off the clutch, boss, I swear!”
CAUTION: Forgetting fulcrum may lead to sitting bricks.
I knew we shoulda checked the wheelie bar option
“You wanted me to offload ’em here, right?”
Actually, all kidding aside, this is how we used to unload building supplies when I had a summer job driving a 5 Ton flatbed. The load was on rollers, and when I’d get to the jobsite I’d unlock the rollers and then accelerate in reverse… slam on the brakes… then into first gear and accelerate forward. The load would (theoretically) slide cleanly off the back of the truck without much damage. Sometimes the front wheels would lift a bit. I think delivery methods have become a bit more sophisticated since 1971.
“So wait, you’re telling me the 10,000 GVWR is in POUNDS, not TONS? “
Memories of my college summers!!!! All joking aside: I lost count of the number of times I forgot to make sure that both latches were secured before I raised the body and had to fish the rear gate out of cement rubble, gravel or whatnot! 🙂
good times, good times!
Well Stan, here’s another nice mess you’ve gotten me into!
well, what did you expect when you ordered 1-[4-ethoxy-3-(6,7-dihydro-1-methyl-7-oxo-3-propyl-1H-pyrazolo[4,3-d]pyrimidin-5-yl) phenylsulfonyl]-4-methylpiperazine, in bulk?
Oh man the boss is gonna $”/+ a brick!
You took the words out of my mouth!
Ok, then, TOMORROW we’ll build the brick shithouse!
Damn it, you beat me to it. In the time it took me to log in.
Actually, I downloaded the pic and zoomed in because I really wanted to see the look on the driver’s face, without much luck.
“That salesman was right – that granny gear is really effective”
Aren’t those the guys from IRT Deadliest Roads?
When you see it……..
“Do you think you could come around the front and stand on the bumper for me ?”
“I warned you, JP, not to sell this classic truck to Educator Dan. He puts a big, powerful V8 in it and this is what you got!”
What did you think would happen?
Whatdoyamean the truck ain’t “professional grade”? I thought a Duramax diesel and Alison automatic would do the trick…
And this is how you get banned from Home Depot when all you were trying to do is pick up your landscaping bricks.
I told you! 8000 bricks was the limit. You just had to try 8001!
“Could be worse…”
“Could be raining…”
“Whadda MEAN, just lower the bed and pull forward?!”
“Just, uh, pull forward…”
“I can’t pull forward.”
“What do you mean you can’t pull forward?”
“This is a Citroen truck, it’s front-wheel drive.”
That reminds me of one rainy day when we were moving – or trying to move – topsoil from one lot to another in a housing development. It was slippery enough that it was hard to position the dump truck on each end of the haul, and soon the loader operator pointed out to me that I was bringing back about half a load each time. We finally shut down for the day – I was probably lucky I didn’t have the front end rear up from too much of that muck sticking in the dump box.
