"I kinda assumed all the other truck drivers spent their time doing meth and beating hookers. It is pretty cool to hear that nerds have taken to the roads as well."i know this may be a joke but it is very offensive. I am a truck driver and here are a few things you should know.1. we are drug tested constantly at least once a year. all truckers are in a basic lottory. what happens is a computer has every truck driver in the united states and it randomly picks drivers. you can be chosen once a month and if you are unlucky you can be chosen every month for a year. suffice to say most truck drivers are clean more like 99.9% excluding perscriptons.2.in the 6 years i have been driving truck i have only had 2 hookers ever aproach my door mainly because i have a no lot lizzard sticker on my windows (basicaly i do not partake). also truckers are usualy perty friendly people untill you cut us off or hang out in our blind spots that 15 cars can hide in at any time. yes our blind spots can be that big so dont get too made if we move into ya.some people think truck drivers are awfull drivers and some days i would agree with you but i would concider this. on your daily commute lisnting to traffic count how many car accidents there are in a day compaired to trucks. can almost gurantee you can almost go days without hearing about a truck accident. If you do the math trucks by a % of trucks get into less accidents than cars. Truck Drivers have that magical Class A CDL for a reason anyone with a class C could drive a truck with a little thinking but we are trained much better than any class c driver. by my companys statistic(we train drivers) 40% of everyone who attempts to get a Class A CDL fails to obtain one. if everyone who had to go through what we go through to maintain a licence our roads would be vacant.now dunno what truck stops this writer has been at but the TA and Flying J truck stops provide decent enough wifi for me. Guess he dosent park near the antena.
