Exclamation Uhmmm SMH

So I have seen a lot of strange/weird things, but this was just one of them times where it was " a pic or it didn't happen " moment. I just don't understand, it was mostly mail and trash from what I could see. The only empty spot was the drivers seat and a little bit of the front windshield. I am talking completely full.

There's a lady here that drives a car that looks just like that. She's been stopped several times and was told to clean it out because she can't even see when she's driving. She also has quite the collection of pet cats.....crazy cat lady.

Whoever drives that truck is a stage 5 hoarder.

A gentleman's truck I go to church with looks like that. Some people are just different, whether it's a mental thing or just them doing them. I don't understand it and I'm actually surprised they are allowed to drive around like that from a safety standpoint.

have seen so many vehicles like that. I can't imagine my car or home being that way.

Worst I ever saw was a new Genesis sedan at ACC that was full from front to back (window to window) with books. I mean hundreds of books. The car was so loaded that it squatted nearly to the frame. only the drivers seat was open.

Arco built a drill site on an old man's place that was like that. Literally no empty spot except the driver's seat. He lived in a boxcar buried in the ground. He had to be forcibly removed from the location for interfering with the dirt work. It took three deputies to put that seventy year old guy in the cruiser, and all of them got bruised in the process. It was kinda funny !

There was a guy that worked for a local deer feeder manufacturing company that had a f150 extended cab pickup that looked just like that. I was shocked when I saw it. Back in the mid 80s I worked with a guy at Schlumberger in Sugar Land. He was a biiiig fella that had a small car filled like that with fast food bags/debris. One time his parents were going to come visit him. Instead of cleaning out his car, he took it down to the dealership and traded it in on a new one. Hilarious!

I've seen it before a few times. True story I actually ran into a and e when they were filming an episode of hoarders for tv. I used to see a ton of craziness when I delivered pkgs door to door. People are mentally off about qvc also. To the point of financially bankrupting themselves ordering so much crap. I've seen it all and have some good stories

I am "clutter-phobic" when it comes to my truck - I will sometimes pull over and throw something away instead of waiting until I get home. Last year I went and visited an old friend I hadn't seen in years. He is brilliant (PHd from Stanford, college professor) but somewhere along the way has become a hoarder. When he picked me up his car was full of junk. The passenger seat and back seat was piled almost to the roof. He had to move stuff to his already full trunk so I could get in the car. I didn't bring it up and neither did he. Otherwise he seems like a normal guy...

I've seen that quite a few times. The 2 that stick out the most are a guy in NRH whose truck was like that. We saw him several times and he was always hauling a trailer with a blue corvette on it. The other was just a month or so ago in Llano. The extended cab truck was so full of junk there were 2 guys in the bed on lawn chairs that couldn't fit anywhere else. SMH

A body shop down from us had a car come in full of old food wrappers like that. It was also full of roaches and other bugs. The insurance company paid to have it tented by an exterminator before anyone would touch it.......

Worked a robbery case one time and had to go in the victim's house to take pictures. Now, let me paint the picture for you. I went in the back door by crawling to the top of the trash and debris to the ceiling. I went room to room taking pictures and had to crawl around the ceiling fans and under the tops of the doorways. This lady had QVC boxes and food wrappers everywhere. Just trails from room to room. The only place I saw the floor was next to the toilet. And the icing on the cake...she was freaking loaded rich. Just had a mental problem.
