Have one last spot in the yard that I'm trying to get to grass over. Nothing but beach sand for a yard so even when it does grow it's delicate for a few years. Been noticing tire tracks turning (truck) around in my yard to get back on the dirt road. Dogs out front went to raising cain late this afternoon and lo and behold the UPS truck was pulling a fancy U-turn in the yard. He came in the yard a little farther than usual and buried the truck to the axle. He then wanted to know if I would pull him out with the Mahindra! I made him call a wrecker to the tune of $250.

   GOOD FOR YOU!!!!  I cant stand it when people use your yard like that.  grass is hard enough to get growing in some areas and then some ja&*$ss goes ahead and uses it to turn around !!  learn how to back up.

Hope you took pictures of the truck stuck in your yard.   Fixing the yard will cost more than the tow.   :smilewink:

If you're thinking about not sending them at least part of the bill, please think about the last ten things you shipped and tell me how many of them you said "Oh My, That's to cheap... You must charge me more..."

I hate the ground out in that area. It is nothing but sand. Call UPS and tell them you want your yard fixed. No way he should be turning around in the yard.

I know it's been said already but GOOD for you!  We have a great UPS driver but when one of them does something like that they need to be reprimanded.

I have that problem with my clam shell driveway, it's pretty and white and stands out from the rest, and it's three hundred feet past the road that goes to FEDEX, animal shelter and the dump. The road is hard to see from the north direction, unless of course you can read the huge sign, so they blow past the road, slam on brakes, wheel into my drive at blinding speed, jam the brakes, nail the throttle, turn the wheels and I go out once a week with my tractor and fix it.

So I empathize with you.

A few years back I was Head Gardener with the National Trust. I was talking to my boss in the office when lo and behold a delivery lorry decided to cut across the lawn as we had some tree work being done. The van was sliding and slipping causing ruts on the lawn. after dropping off whatever it was, he then proceeded to drive back over the lawn with scant regards to the damage. I was beside myself with rage but my boss gently gripped my shoulder and told me to make us a coffee as he would deal with this. We had witnesses from the tree surgeons and from several members of the public. My boss invoiced the delivery company for around a grand for the work to be carried out. I am glad he dealt with it as I could have been suspended for swearing like a trooper.

Anyway glad you got that guy!

I have not heard that term before, what is a trooper in the UK?   Here in the states it would be either a state trooper, which is police, or a soldier.  Sailors are known for their swearing here.

It's a phrase for a soldier swearing. So basically if someone is swearing we say he swearing like a trooper using foul language.

The English Language is so diverse.

We continue to call our language English even though it has been evolving into something else for over 400+ years. Give it a couple hundred more and we'll have to have a translator to read your posts. :thumbs:
