"ROOSTER CRUZIN CASKET"
I was running across I-40 a few years ago when I came up on one of those "Casket Haulers" out of Batesville Arkansas. We got to talking and he was telling me about all these new "Customized Caskets" you can buy now to be burried in and thats when I started thinking.
I then came up with the idea of the perfect "Rooster Cruzin Casket".
It's a "CHROME CASKET" that comes with "Dollies" under the front equiped with 8 small Go-Cart tires for the tandems to give it that trailer effect. The Funeral will be held at night because it comes with LED lights on the sides all the way around at the top and the bottom. It also comes with a set of "LED Break Lights" on the rear that remain on. It has a small lighted license plate that says "I'm Back-Out"!. It also comes with a "CHROME" Road King or Astatic Mic ( your choice ) that goes in one hand and "CHROME" Cell Phone for the other.
There are three super charged 12 volt batteries that go down in the corner of the vault ( sitting on a 3/4 inch piece of plywood of to keep the batteries form being drained ).
There are also LED lights on the top of the casket that are flashing when they are lowering it down in the vault that keep flashing "I APPRICATE IT"--"I APPRICATE IT"--"I APPRICATE IT" . The Casket also comes with a little slot that is on top of the lid down by your feet. This is for all the people who still owe you money so they will have one last chance to make things right and get even with you. There is also a small sign there that says "NO CHECKS PLEASE"! After a few weeks when the batteries loose their charge, "The Ride Is Finally Over".
This way a Driver can actually "Live The Life" a few final weeks "In Peace".
On the "Head Stone" it has LED Lights that say
"OUT OF HOURS & OUT OF SERVICE"!
Years ago when I was living in my Truck there was always somebody walking up to my Truck with something to sale. Well I ended up having these Business Cards made up that I would hand out. I had a stack of them that I kept up there on the dash and when somebody would walk up to my Truck I would roll my window down, hand them one of my cards, and then roll my window back up.
The Card Read;
"A CARD JUST FOR YOU"
( on the other side it said )
NO, I dont want to buy any "Fake Jewelry".
NO, I dont need my "Wheels & Tanks Shinned
NO, I dont have any ''Spare Change"
NO, I dont want to buy any ''Commercial Company''.
and NO, you can't use my ''Damm Radio''.
Today I would have to add one more to the card.
NO, I don't want "Idle Air".
Years ago I was Drivin' for this company out of Indy and I was up there in Syracuse NY picking up "1638 Cases Of Cookies" going to Bruno's Warehouse down there in Birmingham. It was one of those "Hot Loads" had to be there so I ran straight through and made my 2:00 AM appointment. I bumped the dock, went in and gave them my paperwork and was fixin' to go back out to the truck and go to bed when they told me that I was going to have to unload my trailer. I told them I was not going to unload my trailer and that I had just ran over 1,000 miles straight through just to get them their "Hot Load".
They then told me about their "In-House Lumper Service" that they would unload the trailer. So I had their "In-House Lumper Service" come and check out my load and they said they would unload the "1638 Cases Of Cookies" off the floor for $175.00. So I called the office and the office said they would only pay $80.00 for a Lumper. Receiving then tells me about this little building outside the gate that is an "Out-House Lumper Service" and it would be cheaper if I can get a Lumper from out there. So, I go out there and the cheapest I could find anyone to do the job was $110.00.
By this time I was tired of messing with it. I went right back to receiving, told them to give me back my paperwork and "Release Me From Your Dock". They asked me where I was going. I said I was going back to the Truck Stop over there on Finly Street. I told them I had just got fuel over there about 20 minutes ago and this gal jumped up on the side of my truck and she said,
"She Would Do Anything For $40.00"
I'll Be Right Back!
"FINDING A PLACE TO PARK".
THE NEXT TIME YOU DRIVERS PULL INTO A TRUCK STOP LATE AT NIGHT AND YOU CAN'T SEEM TO FIND A PARKING SPOT THERE ARE A FEW THINGS YOU CAN DO.
1. GET ON THE RADIO AND SAY THAT YOU JUST DROPPED THIS LITTLE BLOND OFF AND SHE IS STANDING ON THE ON RAMP. TELL THEM SHE IS NOT FAMILAR WITH THE TRUCKS AND SHE DON'T LIKE TO TALK ON THE RADIO. IF A DRIVER COMES BACK AND SAYS HE JUST WENT BY THERE AND DIDN'T SEE HER. JUST SAY WHEN YOU DROPPED HER OFF SHE WAS HEADED FOR THE TREES TO USE THE RESTROOM.
2. JUST PULL YOUR TRUCK UP ON THE LAST FUEL ISLAND, POP YOUR HOOD, GO INSIDE AND TELL THEM YOUR SPLITTER BROKE ON YOUR TRANSMISSION AND THAT YOU HAVE ALREADY CALLED THE OFFICE BUT THEY SAID IT WAS GOING TO BE ABOUT 3 OR 4 HOURS UNTIL THE MECHANIC GETS THERE. "NO PROBLEM"!
YOU JUST GO BACK TO YOUR TRUCK AND GO TO BED. WHEN YOU WAKE UP, JUST GET OUT AND CLOSE YOUR HOOD AND THEN DRIVE OFF. THEY ARE JUST GLAD TO SEE YOU LEAVE. ONE TIME AT THE PETRO IN KINGMAN THEY LET ME SLEEP 8 HOURS BEFORE THEY EVEN CAME TO THE TRUCK AND WOKE ME UP. I WAS SURE GLAD THEY FINALLY WOKE ME UP BECAUSE I NEEDED TO GET GOING.
3. IF YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BE THERE VERY LONG YOU CAN JUST PULL UP ON ONE OF THE MANY "DISABLE PARKING SPOTS". WHEN YOU GET OUT OF THE TRUCK, JUST "LIMP" INTO THE TRUCK STOP AND NOBODY WILL SAY ANYTHING. I USE TO CARRY A "CANE" WITH ME. DON'T FEEL BAD EIGTHER BECAUSE A LOT OF THESE TRUCK STOPS HAVE 5 OR 6 "DISABLE PARKING SPOTS" AND HAVE YOU EVER SEEN MORE THAN 1 OR 2 ( AT THE MOST ) DISABLE DRIVERS PARKING THERE AT THE SAME TIME. IT JUST DON'T HAPPEN.
4. IF YOU WORK A LOT AROUND THE MID WEST DO THIS. YOU KNOW HOW ALL THESE DRIVERS PUT THEM "TRAIN HORNS" ON THEIR TRUCKS. WELL I LIVE IN OKLAHOMA AND I PUT ME A "TORNADO SIREN" ON MY TRUCK. WHEN I PULL INTO A TRUCK STOP IN THE EVENING AND KICK THAT "TORNADO SIREN" ON, I GET A FRONT ROW PARKING SPOT EVERY TIME.
A FEW YEARS AGO I PULLED INTO THE PETRO IN KNOXVILLE AND I HAD JUST LEFT THE FUEL ISLAND WHEN THIS DRIVER CAME OVER THE RADIO AND SAID THEY WERE CHECKING PAPERWORK UP ON TOP THE HILL. WELL IT WAS ABOUT 2:30 IN THE MORNING SO I DROVE AROUND BEHIND THE "IDLE AIR" ON THE BACK ROW AND I WAS LOOKING FOR A PLACE TO PARK TO DO SOME PAPERWORK REAL QUICK. I ENDED UP PULLING ALONG SIDE THE CURB BESIDE THE ENTRANCE TO "BLUE BEACONS" DRIVEWAY. THERE WERE A FEW TRUCKS IN LINE TO GET THEIR TRUCKS WASHED AND WHILE I WAS SITTIN' THERE DOING MY PAPERWORK THESE DRIVERS WOULD PULL UP THERE AND SAY,
"HOW ABOUT THAT BLACK PETE"!
"ARE YOU IN LINE TO GET YOUR TRUCK WASHED"?
I'D SAY, "YES I AM DRIVER BUT I CAN SAVE YOU SOME TIME IF YOU WANT TO GIVE ME A COUPLE DOLLARS I'LL LET YOU GO IN FRONT OF ME".
I MADE $16.00 JUST SITTIN' THERE DOING MY PAPERWORK!
"RACE ACROSS ARIZONA"
I WENT BACK OUT ON THE ROAD FOR AWHILE BACK IN 2004 RUNNING MILITARY LOADS FOR "ALAN FARMER" OUT OF TUSCALOOSA ALABAMA. I WAS PULLING AN "RGN" TRAILER AND FOR YOU DRIVERS THAT DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT IS IT MEANS "REMOVABLE GOOSE NECK". IT'S WHAT A LOT OF YOU DRIVERS CALL A DOUBLE DROP. THIS TRAILER RIDES ABOUT 6 INCHES OFF THE GROUND. I HAD LOADED AT "MARINE CORP LOGISTICS" THERE IN BARSTOW OFF DAGGETT ROAD AND WAS GOING TO CHARLESTON SC. I LOADED 12 CRATES THAT WEIGHED ONLY 1,030 LBS. EACH THAT WERE "BIG ARMY TENTS" GOING TO "OUR TROOPS" IN IRAQ.
MY LOAD WAS A LITTLE OVER 12,000 LBS. AND WAS SITTIN' LOW TO THE GROUND. I WAS IN A 379 PETE ( THE ONE ON THE FRONT OF "THE REALITY OF TRUCKIN' CD" ) IT HAD A 550 CAT, 18 OVER AND I WAS CLIMBING THAT LITTLE HILL OVER THERE IN ARIZONA AROUND THE 46 YARD STICK RIGHT BEFORE YOU GET INTO KINGMAN. I WAS JUST CRUSIN ALONG AND WAS ON THE PHONE TALKING TO "DOLLAR" AN OLD COW HAULER FROM HEREFORD TEXAS WHEN ALL THE SUDDEN THIS "BIG PRETTY CHICKEN TRUCK" CAME CRUSIN BY ME. WELL AFTER HE MOVED BACK OVER IN LINE AND WE BOTH CLEARED THE TOP OF THE HILL WE WERE COMING UP ON THE "TA" THERE AT EXIT 48, WHEN THAT DRIVER GOT ON THE RADIO AND SAID;
"ANY OF YOU DRIVERS GOING EAST BOUND AND NEED THAT FRONT DOOR, IF YOU THINK YOU CAN KEEP UP WITH ME COME ON LETS GO"!
I WAS STILL ON THE PHONE AND O' DOLLAR SAID;
"WHAT WAS THAT"?
I SAID, "O' THAT WAS ONE OF THOSE "CHICKENHAULERS" THAT THINKS HE'S GOT A FAST TRUCK".
AT THIS TIME WE ARE GETTING READY TO GO BY THE "TA" AND HE GETS ON THE RADIO AGAIN AND SAYS;
"ANY OF YOU DRIVERS GOING EAST BOUND AND NEED THAT FRONT DOOR, IF YOU THINK YOU CAN KEEP UP WITH ME COME ON LETS GO"!
WELL AFTER HEARING HIM CUSSIN' ANOTHER DRIVER I DECIDED TO GET INVOLVED.
THAT'S WHEN I PUT MY PHONE ON SPEAKER PHONE AND I TOLD DOLLAR TO LISTEN TO THIS.
I GRABBED MY MIC AND SAID;
"JUST WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO SAY DRIVER, DO YOU THINK YOUR TRUCK RUNS OR SOMETHING"?
HE COME BACK AND SAID;
"I KNOW MY TRUCK RUNS".
I THEN SAID;
"WELL I'LL TELL YOU WHAT I'LL DO". I'LL BET YOU A HUNDRED DOLLAR BILL THAT YOU CAN'T GET ALONG SIDE ME AND TELL ME THE NAME ON THE SIDE OF MY TRUCK!
"WHERE ARE YOU AT"?
THATS WHEN I SAID;
"I'M UP HERE IN FRONT OF YOU AT THE 51 YARD STICK GETTING READY TO GO BY THE FLYING HOOK"!
"DO YOU HAVE ANY PROTECTION"?
"WELL HELL YES I GOT PROTECTION". AFTER TELLING HIM FIRST, "I HAD THREE CONDOMS AND A GLOCK", I THEN TOLD HIM SURE I GOT ALL THE PROTECTION A MAN NEEDS SO JUST COME ON UP HERE.
AND THAT DRIVER DONE JUST THAT, HE TOOK OFF AND WENT ON UP THERE.
NOW NOT REALIZING I WAS BEHIND HIM ALL THIS TIME I STAYED ABOUT A MILE BEHIND HIM AND HE WOULD RUN UP ON THOSE TRUCKS AND SAY;
"IS THIS YOU I'M COMING UP ON RIGHT HERE"?
AND I WOULD SAY;
"NO DRIVER THERE AIN'T NOBODY AROUND ME".
WE WERE RUNNING TRIPLE DIGITS WHEN HE WAS GOING DOWN HILL BUT I WOULD ALWAYS HAVE TO SLOW DOWN ON THE BIGGER UP GRADES TO KEEP FROM PASSING HIM. WHEN WE CLIMBED THAT BIG HILL OVER THERE BEFORE YOU GET TO WILLIAMS I WENT ON AROUND HIM AND HAD PULLED OVER ON TOP THE HILL AND WAS OUT THERE CHECKING MY LOAD WHEN HE WENT BY. NOW I REALLY CAN'T REMEMBER EVER GOING THROUGH FLAG THAT FAST BEFORE BUT TO MAKE THIS LONG STORY A LITTLE SHORTER WE ENDED UP GOING FROM THE 59 MILE MARKER TO THE 359 MILE MARKER IN JUST A LITTLE OVER 3 HOURS. IT WAS A NIGHT TO REMEMBER I GUARANTEE IT. ME AND DOLLAR STAYED ON THE PHONE UNTIL OUR PHONES WOULD GO DEAD OR LOOSE THE SIGNAL AND WE WERE REALLY JUST "HAVIN' TOO MUCH FUN"!
ANYWAY, WE CROSSED THAT NEW MEXICO LINE AND PULLED INTO THE SCALES THERE AT THE 11 YARD LINE AND I WAS RIGHT BEHIND HIM, JUST 2 TRUCKS BACK. RIGHT AFTER HE MADE IT THROUGH THE SCALES "HE ASKED ME "WHERE I WAS AT NOW"?
I TOLD HIM;
"I JUST CAME OUT OF THE SCALES DRIVER AND I JUST GOT BACK ON THE BIG ROAD"!
"OK DRIVER, I'M FIXIN' TO CATCH YOU NOW, SO YOU MIGHT AS WELL GO AHEAD AND GET THAT HUNDRED DOLLAR BILL OUT"!
WELL, I CLEARED THE SCALE HOUSE A FEW MINUTES LATER AND WAS GETTING READY TO GET OUT THERE ON THE BIG ROAD AND HE HOLLERED AT ME AGAIN.
"WHERE ARE YOU AT NOW DRIVER"? "WHICH ONE OF THESE TRUCKS ARE YOU"?
THATS WHEN I TURNED MY MIC GAIN DOWN ON MY RADIO TO MAKE IT SOUND LIKE I WAS FUTHER AWAY THAN I REALLY WAS AND I SAID;
"DRIVER I'M ALREADY UP HERE GOING BY THE GALLUP GET OFF AT THE 16 YARD STICK AND I GOT TO GO, SO I CAN'T BE DRAGGIN' MY FEET ANYMORE WAITING ON YOU. IT WAS FUN WHILE IT LASTED BUT IT'S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN SO YOU HAVE A SAFE TRIP AND BETTER LUCK NEXT TIME".
THAT WAS THE LAST TIME I HEARD ANYTHING OUT OF HIM BUT, AS I WAS GOING OVER THE BRIDGE AT THE GALLUP EXIT, HE HAD GOT OFF AND WAS RIGHT THERE UNDER THE BRIDGE GOING TO LOVES, OR THE "TA", AND THATS WHEN I REACHED UP THERE AND TURNED THAT MIC GAIN ALL THE WAY BACK UP AND SAID;
" IF YOU CHASE ANOTHER TRUCK, ALL THE WAY ACROSS THE STATE OF ARIZONA, NOT REALIZING HE WAS BEHIND YOU THE WHOLE TIME"!
"YOU'RE PROBABLY A CHICKENHAULER"!
NOW I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THAT DRIVER WAS THINKING AFTER I SAID THAT, BUT "I KNOW HE HEARD ME"!
"GOING OUT WEST"
I road out West with a friend of mine one time. I was "Semi-Retired" at the time and had not drove in a few years but I was driving and needed to get some fuel so I pulled in the Piolt there in Barstow at Lynnwood Rd.. He was asleep and I didn't want to wake him up so I got out of the truck and grabbed that phone and that
O' Gal Said;
"WOULD YOU PLEASE SWIPE YOUR CARD"!
I said now wait a minute. "What the hell would I want to steal my own damm card for"?
''SHE SAID, DO YOU HAVE A HUB"?
I said well hell yes I got a Hub. If I did'nt my damm axles would fall out.
"SHE SAID, DO YOU NEED MILEAGE"?
I said well I've only ran about 1200 miles this week but if you could put a couple thousand on my paycheck it would sure be "Highly Appricated".
"SHE SAID, WHATS YOUR BASE PLATE"?
I said thats that tag on the front of my tractor that tells you what state I am out of.
"SHE SAID, DO YOU NEED A FREE SHOWER"?
I said well I'm completely loaded right now but if you'll sit it out behind the truck stop when I come back through if I have enough room, I'll pick it up.
"SHE SAID, DO YOU NEED REEFER'?
I said "No Thanks". Got Some.
"SHE SAID, DO YOU NEED AN ADVANCE"?
I said well it's been a long time sence a woman has made an advance at me but if you want me to I can make my o'l lady stay in the truck and that way when I come in to pay for my fuel you can show me one of your "Tits" or something.
"SHE SAID, HOW DO YOU PLAN TO PAY"?
I said I don't. I'm a "Drive Off"!
"SHE FINALLY ASKED, DO YOU NEED A TRIP"?
I said, "Bitch" you are a trip. All I wanted to do was get some fuel and you just keep asking me all of these Stupied Questions so I hung up on her, ran out of fuel going down Cojoin, but coasted into the fuel islands at the TA in Ontario!

''YOU'RE PROBABLY A CHICKENHAULER"
I was at the Petro in Oklahoma City the other day and this Driver was on the radio saying that he had just bought him a "Brand New Truck". He was telling everyone that he will sure be glad when he gets his
"New Truck Broke In".
So, when he went into the Restaurant to eat,
( That's Right Drivers )
"I Broke In His Truck"
I grabbed his "CB Radio" and then went in the Truck Stop and found him. I walked over to him and said,
Hey Driver, "Do you want to buy a Radio"?
He looked at it and said, "Well I got one just like it." I then asked him, "What did you pay for the one you got?" He said, "Ah Hundred Dollars."
I said, "Well I'll sell this one for "Fourty". He said, "Okay, I'll take it but I got to go over to the ATM machine to get the money."
I said, "Well hold on a second". I said, Here's your ATM card. I put your Pin Number on the back for ya." I said, "While you are gone, Do you want me to "Catch Up" your log book?" He said, "Sure Go Ahead."
So, when he left I opened his log book up and
"POURED "KETCHUP" IN IT".
"ARGUE ARGUE ARGUE"!
BACK IN THE EARLY 90'S "TA" BOUGHT THE OLD 76 TRUCKSTOP ON THE WEST SIDE OF OKC. WELL WHEN THEY WERE REMODELING, I WENT IN AND TALKED THE RESTAURANT MANAGER INTO TAKING ALL THE PHONES OUT OF THE BOOTHS AND REPLACING THEM WITH
HE THOUGHT IT WAS A GREAT IDEA AT FIRST BUT IT ONLY LASTED FOR A "COUPLE DAYS" BECAUSE YOU KNOW HOW THEM DRIVERS ARE.
"WHAT BOOTH YOU IN ASSHOLE"?
"WHY DON'T YOU MEET ME AT THE BUFFET"!
"PULL THAT BOOTH OVER".
I WOULD ALWAYS TELL THEM IF YOU WANT TO FIGHT AND ARGUE, LETS GO DOWN TO CHANNEL 15.
"I'M UNDEFEATED ON 15"!
''I'LL PUT YOUR RADIO IN A ''FULL NELSON''!
I HAD A BRAND NEW "GALAXY 66" STILL IN THE BOX HERE AWHILE BACK SO I WENT AND FOUND ME A "SWIFT DRIVER", TURNED THAT BOX UPSIDE DOWN, TOLD HIM IT WAS A "GALAXY 99", AND HE GAVE ME $450.00 FOR IT.
THAT SAME DRIVER CAME IN THE CB SHOP THE OTHER DAY AND SAID HE TRIED THE SAME THING WITH A "GALAXY 88" AND HE SAID HE TURNED IT UPSIDE DOWN BUT IT DIDN'T DO NOTHING.
SO ANYWAY, STEVE AT THE CB SHOP WENT AHEAD AND SOLD HIM A "GALAXY 33".
HE WENT DOWN STAIRS AND HOOKED IT UP AND WE HEARD HIM AS HE WAS LEAVING TOWN, HE SAID "HOW ABOUT IT",
"ANYBODY GOT A COPY ON THIS BRAND NEW"
"GALAXY DOUBLE E"?
"ATTENTION ALL DRIVERS"
THE "YELLOW LINE" THAT RUNS ALOND THE MEDIAN IS A "GUIDE LINE" FOR THOSE "YELLOW MOTORS".
IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A "YELLOW MOTOR" YOU NEED TO
"GET YOUR ASS IN THE RIGHT LANE AND STAY THERE"!
"TWO YEAR PHYSICAL"
I WENT TO THE DOCTOR THE OTHER DAY AND GOT ME ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE "TWO YEAR PHYSICALS". THE DOCTOR CALLED ME TODAY AND SAID HE HAD SOME GOOD NEWS AND SOME BAD NEWS. I TOLD HIM TO GIVE ME THE GOOD NEWS FIRST.
HE SAID, "WELL THE GOOD NEWS IS",
"I HAD 24 HOURS TO LIVE".
HE SAID, "THE BAD NEWS WAS",
HE TRIED TO GET AHOLD OF ME "YESTERDAY"!
"BINGO IN AFGANISTAN"
DO YOU KNOW HOW THE TALABAN ARE PLAYING "BINGO" OVER THERE IN AFGANISTAN NOW.
THEY ARE GOING,
AND WHEN THEY HOLLER BINGO THEY GO,
"ROLL OVER MINUTES"
WHEN YOU DRIVERS GO TO GET YOU A NEW "CELL PHONE" YOU NEED TO GO WITH "CINGULAR WIRELESS" WHICH IS NOW "AT&T".
THEY HAVE THESE NEW "ROLL OVER MINUTES".
THIS WAY IF YOUR DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD RUNNING YOUR MOUTH ON YOUR CELL PHONE, AND YOU "SCREW UP" AND
"ROLL YOUR TRUCK OVER"
"YOU DONT LOOSE THE SIGNAL".
IT'S THEM NEW
''ROLL OVER MINUTES"!
"LOST SWIFT DRIVER"
I was tring to help a "Swift Driver" one time that was on the "Radio" saying he was lost. He was tring to get into the Petro there Oklahoma City. I asked him where he was at?
He said he didnt know where he was at.
I told him well, it's going to be kinda hard for me to help you with "Directions" if you can't even tell me where you are at.
He said he was coming up to an intersection at that time to hold on just a secound. When he finally got up to the corner he said;
" I'm at the corner of "
"Walk and Don't Walk".
"RADIO FOR SALE"
