    I’ve seen this truck parking here for months. This is outside the entrance to one of the busiest subway stations downtown Seattle. Only a matter of time before someone busts their shin on it.

    Take it off and toss it in the bed of his truck with a note. He'll notice when he drives home and it starts rolling around.

    Not sure what you're squawking about. It could be worse; they could have a hitch ball covered with grease sticking out instead, ruining people's pant legs day after day. :notsure:

    I'll take it a step further and say that no one needs a truck in Seattle. An old beat CB7 Accord or EG Civic works just fine for picking up your baggies of shit

    Right? Leaving something in the hitch is a good way to make sure your truck gets totaled if somebody rear-ends you, since it'll bend the frame. No dealing with loaners, botched repairs, and rust problems down the road that way.

    It could always be worse, he could have his maxtrax, RTT, and full bumpers mounted full-time on his mall crawler

    Surprised that hasn’t been stolen. Where I’m from, stuff like that walks away in 15 minutes.

    Meh, I wouldn't let it bother you. I see jeeps all the time that have 22s and 35" tires, and while it makes absolutely no sense, I don't let it get to me :p
