I think that was like 9-10 years ago. And what you dont see is like 10-80 pound bags of concrete in the truck. He sent his rear shocks into the car. They made him sign a release i think. But now they limit what they will help you load. Today i got 1312 square feet of engineered hardwood flooring and they guy was like you have a truck right. I had my trailer with me and told him i wasnt the guy with the VW and he knew what i was talking about.

I worked at Home Depot when that picture first came out. Shortly thereafter, in typical corporate overreaction and fear of liability, we had to use an issued liability waiver for EVERYTHING until everyone calmed down. Felt like such an idiot asking for a signature before I could put a small window air conditioner or a sack of soil into a trunk or bed of a trunk.

This picture is real and was taken by a Transportation
Supervisor for a company that delivers building materials
for 84 Lumber. When he saw it in the parking lot of IHOP,
he went to buy a camera to take pictures.
The car is still running, as can be witnessed by the exhaust.

The driver finally came back after the police were called,
and was found crouched behind the rear of the car, attempting
to cut the twine around the load! Luckily, the police stopped him
and had the load removed.

The materials were loaded at Home Depot. Their store manager
said they made the customer sign a waiver.

While the plywood and 2X4s are fairly obvious, what you can't see
is the back seat, which contains -- are you ready for this? --
10 bags of concrete @ 80 lbs. each!

They estimated the load weight at 3000 lbs. Both back tires exploded,
the wheels bent and the rear shocks were driven through the floorboard.
