    #2 is easy enough to solve...don't drive governed trucks! Of course if the megas have their way and they convince the FMCSA to govern everybody, then you'll have the guys with brand new tires creeping past the guys with older tires...no pass shall be completed in less than 50 miles.

    Oblivious 4 wheelers has to be number one. We're the biggest vehicle on the road and they act like we're invisible.

    I read threads like this and just shake my head. If I were to never drive a truck again.....I'd miss ALL of it: the good, bad, ugly.......there's no ONE thing that jumps out as being intolerable........I drive for myself, love my truck, my customers and the country I get to see.

    You COULD brush your teeth in privacy......ANYWHERE but a public restroom LOL....water IS portable these days. Hating your job is no way to live. If trucking isn't "for" you........you need to find happiness. I can't imagine NOT driving.......it's all I ever wanted to do. It saddens me to see men work at something they hate; and in some cases are not good at.

    Lets see. For pet peeves I would have to say DOT, lack of truck parking in some areas/few spots at certain truck stops, loads not ready on time, etc.

    man you caught me and I thought I was safe lol... I gotta find better words for explain my displease for certain types of people.

    instead of curse words I'll just call them Werner drivers, that's more derogatory anyway :biggrin_2559:

    My biggest pet peeve is when I have my hands full coming out of the truck stop and I ocd back out of doors (even with hands empty)

    Some dude grabs the handle.

    I usually respond by swinging around and kicking them with my boot on purpose.
    Most of these idiots stand RIGHT in the middle of the walkway.
    Trying to make me fall down are ya! Oops... Sorry.

    Ppl taking my paper towel if I crank it down then don't crank one back down. So I have to repeat the hand washing process.
    Called manners ppl.

    I get more upset by that than anything on the road !!!

    Grown men relieving themselves in the parking lot. Throwing trash in the parking lot.

    Cars and big trucks passing then slowing down in front just so they are in front and not continue with the speeding to give me my safe zone again.

    People not using turn signals.

    Inability of merging. I think that's because most people aren't familiar with zippers just Velcro. :biggrin_25523:

    I do like to drive. I really enjoy talking to the shippers and receivers to learn about all the different businesses I go to.

    "Steering agents". "Truck drivers" never bothered me... but they're so few and far between...
