HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN THIS ONE TO YOUR BOSS?

So let’s set the scene.

You park your trailer at the XPO lot in Lebanon, IN. You unhook the truck from the trailer, and before you leave, you take one last look at the trailer to admire the parking job you just performed. Your hard work of learning how to handle a big rig has paid off and you now have the skills that most people do not possess. With one last glance over your shoulder, you pull out of the lot knowing that you have parked that trailer perfectly.

THEN A HELICOPTER DECIDES TO LAND IN THE LOT AND DESTROYS THE PERFECTLY PARKED TRAILER IN THE PROCESS.

“What the #*&%”

It almost sounds like a scene out of an action movie, but unfortunately, that was the reality for one carrier not too long ago. Luckily, the trailer was empty at the time, though, I’m sure some customer will still try to file a claim on it.

Another lucky break was that, of the three people on board the helicopter, no one was seriously injured. But with a crash like that, you better believe that multiple agencies, including the FAA and NTSB, are looking into what exactly caused the helicopter to turn a normal semi-trailer into a convertible.

But the real question is how do you explain to your boss that a helicopter destroyed your trailer? I mean, that’s got to be up there with the dog eating your homework in the excuse book!
