I’ve heard the phrase “fell off the truck” before but never seen it happen until last night when I watched Dallas Car Sharks.
A tow truck driver was delivering a used SUV bought at auction. He unchained the SUV from the truck bed and was about to unload it when the owner asked him to unload it in a different spot. The truck driver got back in the cab and pulled the truck forward. The SUV obeyed Newton’s First Law and stayed where it was while the truck bed rolled out from underneath it. The SUV crashed to the pavement with a bent frame: totalled. Fortunately it wasn’t worth much, but the owner was, um, upset.
What other “fell off truck” (or “fell off lift”) stories do you have?
