So yesterday while mom, K & I were driving around town during our shopping extravaganza we noticed something that seemed a bit odd and most definitely unsafe.
Please see the truck below. It was in front of us on the highway as we go about 65 mph. On this truck there is a hodge-podge of random and loose items, being "secured" by a few random and obviously strategically placed straps (Don't worry I did not take the picture. My trusty navigator, aka my mom, took the picture.)
Take a closer look (click to enlarge). You can see there is a ladder hanging on the left, a chair on the top, a moving cart on the side, shelves on the right, and random items in the middle. All of this is being held in by flat cardboard boxes on the outside and blankets and tarps.
Yep, this seems so unsafe but had the three of us cracking up because it was just completely ridiculous! But here is the biggest question: How do you think they got those items to stay there in the first place so they could "strap" everything in?! I think they had to have 20 people hold the stuff up while someone wrapped around the two straps holding everything in place.
Unsafe = yes, but you have to give them some mad props for their resourcefulness.
