So there is this little grocery in Richmond, it’s has been there for years ( like generations) and it backs up to the railroad tracks. It’s close to the tracks, how close you ask… Well, to describe the proximity one might use the word Reeeeeaalllll close. However, we would like to think that …once ya have had your delivery truck “kissed by a train” then one would check just how close they were parked to the tracks! Well, not so much, it seems.
As it played out last week, the grocery delivery man parked his 18 wheeler right next to the tracks and began to unload his delivery when a passing train – again – “kissed” his parked truck. Now really Buddy, once is stupid – maybe a vision problem – but TWICE – in the same spot – in the same year!!! Hon, this driver needs more than his vision checked! AND this doesn’t even begin to address the time the tracks across the little town of Richmond were blocked…. if this happens again, there could just be some old fashion justice meted out by frustrated drivers.
This driver may be myopic but it appears that he’s got a virulent case of stupid as well!
