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.
