CLEVELAND, OHIO – After precariously balancing a rolled, unevenly cut, chain-link fence against the rear of the passenger cab, sources report that local pickup truck owner, Earl Davis, 36 was heard to mutter with shaky confidence “that should be alright”. Neighborhood onlookers lamented as he then got into the pickup with his best friend Clevon Truncle, 34, and headed in the direction of the freeway.
“Yeah, he wasn’t too pleased with how it was rattlin’ around back there“, Truncle added, referring to the unbalanced load that also included assorted pipes and unidentifiable jagged pieces of metal ziptied to the aforementioned fence. “He tried to play it off, but I could tell.“
Sources say during the drive, Davis often repeated his statement of confidence in variation, ranging from “I’m sure it’ll be fine” to “It seemed good to you, right?“, seemingly more so to reassure himself than to assure others.
At press time, cars behind Davis and Truncle could be seen jostling to change lanes behind the pair, and screeching to abrupt halts, as objects the men thought were strongly bound flew onto the road. Reports concluded that the sudden lightness of the vehicle led the men to “think [they] may have lost something back there…”
