    Do you think being a trk driver is the bottom of the barrel job? No its not , the sleaze ball pimping out his 18 year old GF or selling his little bags of white powder is more at the bottom of the barrel.

    Wonder what folks think of me. My wife cringes. Often making me change before we leave the house LOL.

    I'm just libel to step out of the truck wearing dress slacks, tennis shoes, and a old t-shirt.

    I refuse to wear blue jeans. And hate dress
    shirts.

    I was wearing a shirt the other day in doctors office. Pharma rep commented he liked it. I told him my wife hated it. He responded, that must be why I like it LOL

    Simple button down, with classic cars on it.

    Nope I'm not embarrassed about my job at all. Are you embarrassed about you're job? Now some in this industry are embarrassing, but that can go for any profession. Don't worry what they think. It's a job like any other or may I say unlike any other.

    You are right on that one. I see a lot of those as well, but not all are in the trucking industry. Like the @@@hole in the suit giving the cashier a hard time because the card reader at the gas pump he used did not work and he had ro come inside to pay[poor fella lol], but you are right some of those guys you mention is the very reason I don't frequent the buffet. I saw a guy before come from the restroom, did not wash his hands and went straight to the buffet line and was fumbling with the rolls with his hands:biggrin_25513:...Just plan nasty.

    Not embarrassed one bit.
    Disappointed with some of the things I see these days but not embarrassed.

    PS...the girl you are trying to impress may one day find out what you really do for a living. Then she will add liars to her list of things She thinks truck drivers are.

    Ditto on nasty looking drivers. And the ones that dump their piss wherever they please. A big whif of piss smell I encounter in loves, pilots etc
