So true.
I paid a local guy to dump a load of stone on my back parking pad where I park my RV so I can make it more level, and I and his helper both told him to drive up the hill past the spot and back down to dump it, but he insisted on backing up the hill from below. The main drive goes straight up and down the hill, so he had to back off of that to the side a little to get the back end where I wanted it dumped, and the hill is steeper on the lower side of the parking pad than the uphill side, and he ended up rolling the tri-axle dump truck over on its side.

Then once he got a tow truck to come and put it back on its wheels he ran over my, and my mother-in-law's mailboxes on the way out.

Sean, wow !!!! I drove tri-axle dump trucks and some places you just cannot dump, this is likely one of them. I've had operators try and persuade me to still attempt to place a load where it is convenient for them, but unsafe for me. Push came to shove, I'd drop is as close as was safe and that was that. One of the operators got "mouthy" about it, glad it did not go any further than that because at that age, would not have taken much for it to have escalated. I knew what was safe and what was not and the people I worked for entrusted me with this very large truck hauling upwards to 30 ton on one state road job where we were told it was ok to go over the weight limit.
