    we always chalk our wheels. It is drilled to us over and over again, that its is the first thing we do when we get out of the rig.

    Default Split personality...

    I'm split down the middle...

    I always remember to properly chock aerials, even when I don't know for sure whether I'll be using them, but I almost always forget to chock engines. I don't really know why.
