Actually, its not the drivers fault. When a truck backs into a bay, the doors cannot be closed. The truck has to pull forward a bit to allow the swinging doors to close. The people who loaded it should have roped them in.
Yep, they should have been secured, somehow, regardless… It’s the fault of everyone involved…
Yup, they should have roped them in… and the driver should have waited for the “all clear” signal. I’m sticking with blaming the driver, not “everyone.”
Matt, you are right, they have to leave some room for the dock plate, so it can get pulled up. Then it gets even better… when they miss the dock plate by 6 inches and they back in crooked (this is a constant problem at our store.
Except that the driver pulled out waaaaay further than was necessary to shut the doors and the carts didn’t start to fall off until he had done so. He should only have pulled forward 8-10 feet.
A driver will normally pull way out like this to allow for other trucks to back in while they are locking up and putting the tamper band on their door latch….warehouse docks are usually very busy.
Yeah the one guy was standing there like he was trying to decide where to put what he was holding – driver pulled away before he should have – that’s funny! I love how everyone comes to watch it happen too.
i blame physics.
I would be laughing my ass out… probably got fired afterwards… but still Lol’ing
THAT’S why there’s always a wonky wheel.
