So God made a grain cart driver

A few years ago, a Super Bowl commercial put the American farmer at the forefront of many conversations the following morning as Ram Trucks put Paul Harvey’s reading of “So God Made a Farmer” with a montage of pictures of farmers doing what they do everyday.

But, even with the farmer getting this much deserved recognition, there is still one group of workers on the farm that need some thanks and praise this time of year. This post is for them.

So God made a grain cart driver

On the 8th day, God looked at his paradise and thought…

“I need a man that can be responsible for the mistakes that everyone makes. I need a man that is expected to read minds and a man that is to be everywhere he is expected twice as fast as possible.”

So God made a grain cart driver.

God said…

“This man will have to be patient, for he will get his butt chewed like he’s a dog, for simply not being able to see because of the glare of the Sun. This man is expected to have the same view of the cart as the combine driver does, even though he is inside the tractor in front of that cart. He needs to be a man that can make a miracle of a 1000 bushel per minute auger unload at double that and be expected to knock his teeth out driving back in the field to the combine at nearly road speed.”

God said…

“This man will be solely responsible for not spilling grain, but also smart enough to run over skips in the field so it looks clean. I need this man to be able to understand hand gestures that change every day. I need this man to hold his tongue when he’s told it’s all his fault and be willing to grease the combine every day.”
