Do people hate how you drive a 4 wheeler even more as a truck driver?

    Ever since I started to drive a rig, most people including the ones that know me can't stand my 4 wheel driving with me in the car. Before I get into details, I want to first see who can relate to this lol

    Wife used to get upset about slowing too early and likes to make fun of the wide turns. Did the trailer make it?

    Driving in heavy traffic in places like Toronto she finds it odd that traffic seems real smooth with me driving though. :)

    One thing I realized. All the people that hate how I drive a 4 wheeler drive like maniacs, every single one of em. They hate how we drive because they themselves drive crazy. It is no coincidence that none of em have any patience.

    A few weeks ago I caught my wife driving like an idiot first handed. Her office is in the same industrial park my barn is and I was coming in as she was leaving the office and here's this Jeep Commander on a 45° angle waiting to make a left half in the oncoming lane I was trying to turn in. Lit her her with the air horns and no response....when I got home I ask her how her day was and how is traffic? "It was fine". Didn't notice anything weird? "No". Didn't notice the big red ####ing truck that would have taken you out if he wasn't paying attention? "Oh, ####...that was you". Yea....

    Laws are only there for anyone dumb enough to follow them.

    I don't think they hate it so much as it confuses them. They are always wondering what the hell I'm reaching for the dash for as I habitually try to flip the jake on.
