Sunday Post: Work

Each week Jake proposes a theme for creative inspiration. You can post your interpretation to the theme on your blog anytime before the following Sunday.  Remember to post your link in the comments section.  Here is my entry for work.  Yesterday the weather was nice so we sat on our balcony to have our morning tea.  Unfortunately, not everyone was going to have a good day.  Here is a worker towing a car.  I didn’t see the owner of the car once he or she found out.  For me, it was entertaining to watch.  I hadn’t seen a truck like this one before.

    Nice interpretation of work! I should probably check out that weekly meme. And that is one huge-ass truck!

    • TBM says:

      I was surprised by the truck and the method of lifting the car onto the truck. That is a new one for me. The meme is a fun one and you should look into it.

    Wonderful entry and writing up for this weekly sunday post. I loved it. Thank you dear TBM, have a nice new week, with my love, nia

    Oh wow! Never seen a tow truck like that one. I can understand why you found it entertaining!

  4. Madhu says:

    Cool! But not funny for the owner! I have had my car towed once and the wheels locked another time to the perverse amusement of bystanders (quite like yourself :-)).

    Both of those vehicles are pretty impressive. Now, that is the way to tow a vehicle! Nice post and photos. Condolences to the owners of that SUV when they returned to find it missing. Bummer for them. 😦

    • TBM says:

      I didn’t see the owner but I can only imagine that he or she was not happy with the situation. I feel for them. I was impressed with the towing method though.

      • orples says:

        Yeah, I can sympathize … been there,done that. Getting towed is a major headache and, sometimes, unnecessary expense. I guess somebody has to pay for that cool tow truck though.

      • TBM says:

        That is a good point. Since I don’t have a car I no longer have to worry about it. I have a feeling the cost is pricey in London to get your car back. I know it was expensive in Boston.

    Wow—I have never seen that kind of tow truck either but I guess it makes sense to just pick the vehicle up!!! Amazing!!! And I bet the owner was less than excited….

    Up, Up, and Away!

  8. Interesting way to two a car. I just showed it to the hubby and he did a double take.

    Great entry for this week topic my friend so stunning , Good work 🙂

  10. Northern Narratives says:

    Wow, I have never seen anything like this. An unhappy day for the car owner.

  11. Fergiemoto says:

    Great entry! A very unusual tow truck – I’ve never seen this before either and it’s the most sophisticated one I’ve seen. Just pick it up and drop it where you want.

    • TBM says:

      It is a different method from what I’m used to…it did take a lot longer than the tow trucks I’ve seen in the States.

  12. zelmare says:

    A lift truck! 😉 Nasty surprise for the owner, but then, rules are rules, and some are not meant to be broken… 🙂

  13. Gilly Gee says:

    oh dear some poor soul owns it! I’ve never seen a truck like that either but I’d love to have a go 😉

  14. scrapydo says:

    Is that how they do it! Mmmm what a surprise when there is nothing left in the parking spot.

  15. Jo Bryant says:

    Love this one. But these sorts of things always make me want to slip in and half saw throung the ropes…
    Does that mean I am twisted ???
