As an experienced driver my advice is the buckets at the fuel islands are not a bird bath.

    Why they just don't go into the restroom and use the toilet water I don't know. Probably cleaner water and a place to discard your wasteful paper use.

    What are you expect, they came from a Third World country and they got dropped into a first world country.

    when you going to some truckstops, you would think you’ve been transported to a Third World country.

    Only ignorant people think that the subhuman conditions that US truck drivers endure in the course of their job are repeated in other countries, even poorer ones.

    The condition of the restrooms on a typical trucking route in the US is truly disgusting on a level that people who have traveled to the countries you mentioned do not find ANYWHERE in the countries you named. At least the guys in the photo are washing themselves. Some of the caucasian drivers I've seen seem to have never washed a day in their lives; this includes their backsides after defecating. The condition of the trucks of some caucasians is also very disgusting, on levels I have never seen in the trucks of non-caucasians.

    You can blame the "brown" men in the photo for washing their feet in windshield washing buckets, but you cannot hide your bigotry by linking that behavior to whole countries.

    I expect them to understand that and clean up after themselves and act as if they’re not in their s***hole country anymore.

    I’d have taken a picture of people washing themselves on the fuel island out of the wash bucket regardless of color or creed. The nationality is irrelevant, the behavior is relevant.

    I'm going to hazard a guess and say your ancestors came to the US from a "Third World country" at the time.

    Also, you're making a lot of assumptions about the people in the photo. Maybe they're Native American. I'm quite sure a lot of people in the US couldn't tell the difference between an Arab and a Pakistani or a Salvadoreno and an Egyptian.

    Why don’t you get off your high horse about nationality and address the behavior, especially leaving the trash behind them

    You mean like everyone else who cleans up after themselves at truck stops? I wasn't even addressing you in my previous posts. Since you've decided to respond anyway by referring to a whole country in a derogatory manner, you've joined to bigot brigade. Couldn't help yourself, could you?

    Birds of feather...

    If the nationality is irrelevant, then why mention it at all? If you weren't a bigot, you'd have stuck to the subject of the behavior instead of trying to link it to a country or part of the world.

    What's hypocritical is that all they did was leave paper towels on the ground. Far worse is left by truck drivers all over the truck stop.

    No, I think my assumptions are right on.
    i’m pretty sure I can tell the difference between a native American and someone from the Middle East.
    I’ve seen it happen before and I’m sure that I will see it again.
