Stupid, stupid towing technique. Watch short video and weep

By Normal Frump
Oh, here we go again with massive evidence of the dramatic decline in human intelligence. Is it the preservatives in our food numbing our brains, or our brains turning to mush after days, weeks, months and years of staring at computer screens and mobile devices — and slowly but surely transforming that ugly glob of tissue behind and above our eyeballs into the equivalent of a sea slug.

Or is it our educational system that teaches children to memorize the Gettysburg Address, but fails to teach them that there is a danger later in life of not learning common sense, which will be far more important one day than what Abe Lincoln said years ago, which is available instantly via Google.

So here we go again (oh, this is hard to watch and not lose faith in humanity) with yet more evidence of modern day man’s (and woman’s) mental decline. The driver of this car is towing a U-Haul trailer, which, in itself, is not stupid. But wait, OMG! He’s towing it on its side with no wheels on the ground — scraping the highway as he goes.

The video ends too soon for us to learn how the stupidity ends. We’re hoping the trailer doesn’t catch fire. We’re also hoping a trooper pulls the Neanderthal driver over and asks him (or her), “You outta yer freaking mind?!”

And we sure wish we could be at the U-Haul dealer when the driver turns the trailer in. Oh, boy, that would be so much fun!

Watch and weep!

why would anyone follow this guy after seeing the carnage? Did anyone happen to see the rear left gate of the towing vehicle? Looks like there has been other “episodes” of smart activities

Those U-Hauls are so hard to pull

Staged or not, I believe we’ll see more idiotic stunts like this from the tide pod eaters. Just because 1 of them seen it on YouTube.

If you believe “common sense” should be taught in schools then that explains why you think this was not a staged show..

I agree with Bob P. I believe this is staged!

Gas mileage must be horrible…

This is a staged event, it’s obvious the wheel/tire is removed on the left side, there’s a cable attached from the car to the trailer and the hitch has been modified. As someone said a standard hitch will not allow this, since the hitch on a UHaul is a 2” and is very stout and would affect the car, even a 4X8 trailer is heavy enough that car would not be able to drag it at that speed if it could drag it period. The Ford truck following and recording is in on the joke also because pieces of metal that would be coming off the trailer would be hitting the truck. This is being filmed on an abandoned section of 2 lane highway as there is no other traffic there. JOKE ON YOU!

There is other traffic on the highway. I do think it is staged though.

And the driver probably has a Masters degree. LOL

Has to be a stunt for an internet video. A U-Haul trailer uses a pretty standard hitch mechanism. This trailer’s tongue appears to still be attached to the hitch rather than being dragged on the safety chains. No standard hitch will allow a 90 degree connection. If the trailer rolled, it would pop off the ball.

I agree. And who would be foolish enough to follow that down the road. No telling what will fall off the trailer.

You just can’t fix stupid!

Why didn’t the driver filming this get in front of the idjit and force him to slow down??

Jim Prideaux (@guest_133328)

For some you really need to start with the basics: 1) The side with the wheels is on the road.

Eric (@guest_132655)

Taking it back to U-Haul to get it put back on it’s wheels? Did they pay extra for damage insurance? Does it apply when there’s such gross negligence? So many questions.

The two most terrifying parts of this to me are the multiple points of damage to the rear end (view at 0:14) and that the driver is willfully ignoring the problem. This isn’t just stupidity. This person is unhinged!

Don’t worry, be happy

Their transmission overheating and catastrophic failure will put an end to this stupidity.

Wasn’t their motto “An Adventure in Moving”? But they never said for whom.

I would NOT follow this guy as filmer did. When chunks or entire trailer come off, you get shrapnel in your car. Pull ahead, block and stop.

Some people never look back in life and even when they are driving a Car.

So that’s why they sell the extended warrantee.

They walk among us and they breed. They should apologize to the trees that are working so hard to provide these people with their oxygen.
