Truck Team Tuesday – The Boys from Baltimore

Nick

Well folks, hold on to your hats because the Boys from Baltimore are featured in today’s Truck Team Tuesday post.  These boys work hard and play hard…and have wicked senses of humor.  Read on with caution. I bring you Kyle and Mitch Gable, Nick “Wolf” Warren and Tim Hutchison!

How long have you been working with 1-800-GOT-JUNK?

Kyle – A year and a half

Mitch – Two and a half years

Nick – Four lovely, fun-filled years!

Tim – Two and a half years

What did you do before you found Junk?

Kyle – Worked at Walmart doing a little bit of everything

Mitch - Worked at a car dealership

Nick – I slung drinks and waxed a lot of boats.

Tim – Was a landscaper…oh, and I moonlighted as a nude model

What do you love about being a Truck Team Member?

Kyle – I love dealing with weird customers and strange situations

Mitch – Finding cool stuff

Nick – I appreciate the management’s dedication to providing us with all supplies we need. I like the pride they take in their position in both life and the company.

Tim – Working with Nick.

What is the most challenging thing about being a Truck Team Member?

Kyle - Driving around in Baltimore. Baltimore residents love to walk in the middle of the road.

Mitch – Dealing with unhappy people

Nick - The labor

Tim – Holding back from slapping Nick for doing dumb things.

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever hauled away?

Mitch

Kyle - Lots and lots of sex toys

Mitch – Porn and sex toys

Nick – The Golden-Touch Eskasizer (it’s an old-school machine. You strap yourself into it and it vibrates your butt)

Tim – A large shadow box filled with creepy voodoo stuff

What’s the grossest thing you’ve ever had to do?

Kyle – Haul away boxes of penis enlarging pumps.

Mitch – Deal with baby mice

Nick – Haul away a humidor that was obviously used for more than cigars…(enough said)

Tim - I agree with Nick.

Did you do it with a smile?

Kyle - There’s only one way to haul junk and that’s with a smile!

Mitch – No

Nick - I was trying NOT to laugh, so I’m sure I was smiling

Tim – I was smiling and laughing…until we noticed the customer’s pistols

Do you have any other funny memories or stories that you can share?

Kyle - It’s funny how, when I’m not driving the truck, I have narcolepsy, it doesn’t matter how rough the drive is or how loud the radio is on, I can’t stay awake. The drivers don’t appreciate this very much.

Nick – We did a job at a local bar and had my junk hat stolen off my head.  When I approached the lady who took it, she started dancing with me.  When I asked for my hat back, she slapped me across the face.  It was 9:30am and she was “fall down drunk.”

Tim – Nick, that “fall down drunk” was your mom.

Do you have a motto or a philosophy on life?

Kyle - DO WORK!

MitchTake life one day at a time

NickAll your base are belong to us

TimThis time next year, I’ll be a millionaire

    Love that young man; wish he would e-mail sometimes and that he would let his beautiful hair grow back. Hoping he gets his college degree before I am too old to attend graduation!
