Friendly and disgusting warning

What the general public doesn't know is that the driver turnover at major truck lines is about 80% a year, with many companies exceeding 100%.

The era of the "professional driver" is past. This era has faded into history replaced with the products of government funded (grants and loans) driver production mills. (I.e. Driving schools)

The good drivers have been over run by transient drivers.

Turnover is not the fault of the drivers. Blame shippers, receivers and trucking companies along with the various government agencies who can pull a driver over and write them numerous expensive tickets on a whim. The shippers and receivers treat drivers like dog excrement and have unrealistic expectations of shipping/delivery dates and times. I've been there. I know.

Truckers pissing into jugs is nothing new, it's been like that for years and years. Take a walk in a truckstop parking lot on a warm day and take a huge whiff. That aroma isn't coming from that load of roses in that truck.

Don't forget the pay structure. They are paid by the mile. Not very much pay either. You are gone away from home for weeks at a time and get no regular sleep. Then after driving all night to make that 3 am appointment, they make the driver unload the truck by himself. I put up with it for just over 3 years and never looked back. Horrible way to earn a living.

For what it is worth Mr. Prez, I agree with you near 100%, except that on average, drivers are more nasty and indifferent than they used to be because most with dignity move on to jobs that are treated with more dignity.

Gray water smells also and is full of skin cells food particles, toothpaste, and anything else someone dumps down the drain. Some of this is urine and other human waste from rinsing clothing or peeing in the shower. Think about it before you add to the parking lot problems. Removing shoes is an excellent idea. Jim

It doesn't appear things are going to improve anytime soon.

Success feeds on success, and decline feeds on decline.

We have fundamental issues.

Oh, By the way, those one gallon jugs on the side of the road are actually jugs of emergency gasoline strategically placed by good samaritans to help those who run low on gas.

Maggie...I agree with this idea.

And the word of the day is....galoshes. (See post #2). Now that's a word I haven't heard in awhile. Brings back memories.
My oversized-hand-me-down-galoshes. Lol. Walking through the mud my galoshes would 'stick' or remain in the mud and I'd walk right out of them. I'd be standing there like a goofy stork, one foot bare - one foot in my galosh (is that a word?).
And me trying to maintain my balance to get my foot -- (ok, I'll say it...trying to get my bare foot - 're-galoshed'. LOL.
