    Some guy just took my bathroom stall. I know he saw me standing by the sink, waiting for one to open up. So rude!

    Why ya'll concern yourselves with how everyone else drives and parks just blows my mind, how bout I just sit at home and you drivers can drive my truck for me and I'll give you a cut of my check....10% sound ok?

    I've got a great idea! my God I think I've figured it out, instead of worrying about how everyone else drives all you drivers just drive your own darn trucks.

    Parking is first come first serve, if there's an open spot im going to back into it...if your too slow getting there I'm sorry about your luck!

    People with attitudes like this is why trucking is what it is, and not what it used to be.

    Yeah because you know what it used to be like?

    I guess I should go around and knock on every truck I see not parked into a legal spot before I back into a spot at the next truck stop huh?

    "Hey buddy, I'm sorry to wake you, I see your parked out here along side the cat scale, would you like to have that open spot over there?"

    People like you out there video taping other drivers, calling the DOT on other drivers, ######## and whining about losing a parking spot are the reason trucking is the way it is now.

    P.S. people like you are also the reason I sleep on ramps and not at truck stops....

    And I was born yesterday too, right?

    So because I've been driving a truck for less than a year, that must mean that I know nothing about the business and its history? I fail to see the connection here. Please explain?

    Ok, so next time I'll Just not say anything and let Mr. Laptop roll his truck into a ball on the side of the interstate, and maybe take out your family's car with it. At least I have the stones to take action instead of just talking. What have YOU done to improve highway safety lately?

    Tell us all about it please, kind sir. I'm coming up on three years and don't know everything yet.

    When I pull into a truck stop I don't know what everyone's intentions are. If I saw someone on the grass pulling out I would assume they were leaving. I would take the space and not give it up to some yahoo waving a fuel receipt at me. Sorry.
