The dispatcher called me and told me he had a special trailer he needed me to haul with my rig. I was surprised when I saw it was an oversized load of literally half of a house.
I’d never hauled an oversized load before. I was only in my second year of trucking and was shocked that I’d be trusted with a load that size.
Once I left the depot, I realized that I had drawn the short straw. It was very windy with strong gusts and I had a hard time keeping my rig and load on the road.
