This is what happens to truckies on a 44 degree day
A HEATWAVE around Australia in December resulted in some unusual occurrences as one truckie can attest to.
He got out of the driver's seat of his semi-trailer on to a parking area which had recently been sealed.
Alas, part of the tar had melted and his boots were stuck.
A quick thinking type, he managed to remove his feet from the boots and hop back into the seat before driving away.
Luckily he had a pair of thongs in the cabin which he wore for the rest of his shift.
Spy saw the driver of a Mitsubishi truck who was picking up sheets from a hotel for washing and cleaning and it was 44 degrees.
"It is a bloody scorcher out there today," he quipped.
