I recently passed through your area and got off I64 for some fuel and coffee. There was a man working at the gas station who apparently was quite amused at the sight of a worn-out middle-aged woman who had been driving along in her beat-up car. Obviously, I was not of the caliber of people who normally shops there. He was so impressed by my frizzy hair and smashed up car that he made sure he pointed me out to a co-worker, who also enjoyed a laugh at my expense. As I left that "wonderful" facility, I noticed the man out doing his job. He was picking up garbage blowing around the parking lot. How uniquely symbolic of his demeanor and personality.

Sounds like the old maintenance guy. He actually died, having fallen through an attic apparently.*shrugs* true story though. Sorry you had that experience. Not everyone who works there behaves like that.

You say he fell thru an attic and died? Are you sure it was the same old guy! I heard the old guy was fishing off of the old swinging bridge, missed his step, fell into the lake, and drowned. No insurance and now laying in the morgue. Check it out Road Bandit.

The maintenance worker he is referring to is not the same person whom fell through the attic and died. Just saying.

Back in spring of 2014. We always fished off of the swinging bridge and the body was down on the rocks. It was reported in the Banner.

This guy was living in San Antonio, TX at the time. He left the Ranger to go to HVAC school down there and ended up falling through an attic floor.

He was actually living in Dallas, Tx. But HE is not the one the traveler is talking about. The traveler posted in 2014 (suggested you need to read before you post)The guy that died didn't work at Road Ranger until 2015 and left in 2016 went to dallas in 2017 and died in 2018. He is not here to defend himself against a possible "steering wheel holder" so I am going to. Get educated before you post something you obviously know little about. Thanks and good day.

So who is the cadaver lying in the morgue found under the swinging bridge. Everybody quiet and not saying nothing. Heard he had a cap with Shell logo.

I don't know where a swinging bridge is at in Nashville, Okawville or addieville but I"m not from the area. I googled and never found any accident (death) to that description happening in 2014. There was a similar one south of Nashville, Tenn but that was in 2018.

The swinging bridge is east of Carlyle. Carlyle Lake overflow.

Guess that was just an old rumor. I wouldn't know, just do the yard work at several funeral homes.
