We've all had one of those days, where we just can't seem to get ahead. Weather delays and breakdowns can be frustrating, but nothing compared to what some of these folks have been through.
So the next time you're laid up waiting for the rain to pass or sitting in an ungodly long line to unload grain, scroll through these images and remember you probably don't have it as bad as ...
1. The one who thought they could make it through.
"It looked dry."
2. The one who couldn't wait to cool off.
"Track hoe decided it was too hot so it wanted to take a swim."
3. The one who tried cliff diving in their tractor.
"This is my tractor after it took a spill off a 30ft. cliff."
4. The one whose mower rolled over and played dead.
"I was mowing along the interstate on a hill side and the mower started pulling me down hill and the tractor rolled while I was trying to correct. I was wearing my seat belt and walked away with a fractured sacrum. Glad to be alive, however this is a day I don't ever want to repeat."
5. The one whose old farm truck was too hot to handle.
"Truck fire getting ready for harvest."
6. The one who went from moving brush to hugging a tree.
"Pushing a big bowed limb on a pile and the loader did not reach high enough. Bruised ribs, bent fenders, and wondering why I was still alive."
7. The one who just wanted to feed the chickens.
"Filling the feed bin as usual...didn't go as usual. The legs on this Fortuna, Mo poultry farm bin buckled and the full bin collapsed on truck. The truck driver scrambled out of the way, and nobody was hurt."
8. The one who played chicken on their birthday.
"Hired man mowing ditches along the highway on his 70th birthday got hit by a car. The tractor broke in half and the car rolled into to the ditch."
9. The one who hit the road ... and the road hit back.
"We were climbing out of a river bottom when the road caved in sending my truck over on its side. Incredibly the only damage was to the driver side stack and the straps I had to cut, other than that the old truck is still hauling hay!"
10. The one who probably didn't need all that grain anyway.
"This 1,000 bushel of wheat was dumped on the ground after the tractor and cart found Some kind of sinkhole in the middle of the field."
11. The one whose planter wanted to be a digger.
"The u-clamp bolts broke, that hold the hitch to the main frame!"
12. The one whose tractor just wanted to relax and enjoy the sunset.
"Case IH JX 95. Light, but not light enough to float on mud!"
