    As long as we're talking pet peeves.

    Were, we're
    Wear, where
    Our, hour, are
    Been, ben, bin
    There, they're, their
    Your, you're, yore
    Which, witch
    Then, than
    Loose, lose
    Its, it's
    To, too, two

    Whew, that was cathartic.

    The general public already thinks this industry is full of crude, disgusting, uneducated, ignorant, and juvenile individuals who couldn't hack it in a "real" job. Why would you have a desire for this (or any other trucking-related forum where PROFESSIONAL drivers communicate) to reflect that image? Every time I roll past a truck stop and hear the filth coming over the CB, I can see where the general public would have that impression of us...that and the absolute filth left behind anywhere trucks typically park.

    Until the people in this industry start acting like professionals, the image problem won't improve.

    "Should of" (instead of "should have" or "should've").
    "Could of" (as opposed to "could have" or "could've").

    Drivers who don't clean their truck out everyday... How can you get in a dirty truck every morning and step on McDonalds cups and candy wrappers? If you do it everyday while fueling, it takes 30 seconds, put a trash can next to your seat, dump it every fuel stop... Get one of those blow gun nozzles that go on a little hose that plugs into your air seat... Spend less than a minute a day to have a clean truck!

    This is funny, I saw a landstar driver with a trash can "empty" and a dash full of trash, at a T/S, I called him on the CB and asked him why does he have a trash can when it appears you use your dash? No further comment came from that driver

    Clutch riders- that aint a foot rest people. Being a doorman and people dont say thanks for holding the door open. Makes me want to slam the door in thier faces. Fuel and air lines at the pump not put away. Guys who walk away from the urinal or stall and straight out the door without washing. Then you see them at the coffee bar and sifting thru the unpackaged pastries. Mmm mmm good. Guess a little flavoring goes a long way.
