Hell froze in New Orleans

I was trolling Crackbook and one of my board buddies posted this picture.

redneck payload

A friend who works at Home Depot sent this to my husband. The caption in the message was simply "classic redneck leaving home depot!"
This happens A LOT there apparently. The vehicle:a small pickup (ie: Ranger, S-10, Isuzu Hombre) with a small bed.
They just drove past a much larger Home Depot rental vehicle.
In the bed of the truck?
That is two PALLETS of concrete mix. Those are bags of powdered material you mix with water to make concrete. One bag weighs between 30 and 60 pounds, depending on the brand etc. I estimate each pallet has about 50 bags on it. Just the low estimate would be well over 1500 pounds each pallet. There's at least 3,000 pounds on the truck. Even a regular full size truck like a Silverado or F150 would struggle with this weight.

But that's a redneck for you.
"Nawp we'll git it in one trip. I ain't rentin' thayr truck when I got mah own. And I ain't wastin' time and gas makin' two trips neither."
They're very obviously bad at math and science.
