    Hell I've only seen one lizard in 20 years. Broad open daylight at a Loves in South Ms. Rough is all I can say. Sound asleep get woke up by a saggy boobed hag I was in total shock. Decided to peel out I was in a bad spot, when I seen her piling in a white Volvo and the driver grinning ear to ear

    Haven't seen a lizard in a few years. Nowadays, a knock on the door will usually be a goodbuddy.

    I’m so happy I haven’t had the chance to experience anything that you all describe.
    Sometimes I do wonder what it might be like to actually stop at a truck stop.

    Just pee on your feet in the shower, it kills fungus. And if you hear a knocking at the door, ignore it or you may have a shower lizard prying it's way in

    So THAT’S why you never see any fungus in a truck stop parking lot. Maybe I should start a mold abatement company. All this tea I’ve drank is just itching to get loose and kill some aspergillus niger.

    yep welcome to reality buddy its never the same as what they told you during training was it? Now if you stick with it for the next few months you'll be well on your way to becoming a professional driver.

    That’s got to be a first, to have your best shower at the truck stop. That’s akin to saying the best bed you had was in jail.

    A little tip if you aren’t getting good shower pressure at home. Unscrew the head and you’ll see a little plastic restrictor plate where the head screws on. Pop that plate out, screw the head back on, and enjoy. It’s the first thing I do when installing a shower head.
