Not saying that someone isn't fooling with you, but if the ice is slippery, it can happen even on a moderate incline.
I agree. if you lift the rear end of your truck with it in park, you can turn the one tire one way and the other will spin the opposite way. So if you parked half on ice and half off ice then someone pushed or leaned on the truck it would roll in that direction, because the tires on the pavement are rotating one way and the ice is allowing the opposite side to rotate the other way. Safest bet is to set the parking brake everytime now and don't forget about it when you go to leave.
