Dumbest Car Guy in the World

This picture is real - not doctored in any way - and was taken by a Transportation Supervisor for a company that delivers building materials for a lumber company.  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 2X4’s 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.
