All I know is it takes all kinds for the world to go around. I've hauled cattle for about 20 years and it doesn't matter what you do there's always know it all know nothing people.Evidently I've been loading wrong or some people have no clue what it takes to load a pot. It's kind of like if you do get to have a set down meal when you're at a truck stop you hear all sorts of b.s. stories about this and that.
