    Twas the Saturday night before Christmas

    'Twas the Saturday night before Christmas, when all through the truckstop
    all the diesels a-stirring, even the rattly old Cats.
    The one fingered birds flew from windows everywhere,
    in hopes that the newbie trying to park the SWIFT truck would get it in there before the New Year.

    Some truckers were nestled all snug in their sleepers,
    while visions of making it home for Christmas danced in their heads.
    Some in Chinese racing team knockoff jackets,
    and none with the brains for a long winter's nap.

    When out on the lot there arose such a clatter,
    I sprang to my windshield to see what was the matter.
    Out of the cab I flew like a flash,
    to stand on the lot and see what was demolished.

    The shine on the breast of the new-fallen fender
    gave the lustre of midday to objects around,
    when, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
    but a SWIFT co-driver door opens and out falls a beer.


    Too tired to carry on with the edit. Short version: C. R. England driver in a hurry cut to close to the SWIFT and did not allow enough space for offset in a turn. Saggy pants SWIFT driver fresh out of CDL school freaks, hits go instead of stop, and plants the DOT bumper right into a polished saddle tank of an older but spotless well-chromed Kenworth. You'd think it was a 4th of July celebration what with the fireworks that went off. No sleeping with all these red and white and blue lights flashing.

    Double check your be safes during the holidays, folks. There are a lot of stupid people out there.

    Good night.
