    How about touching the roller dogs with your bare hand after taking a crap and not washing your hands? We should fight back on that

    :eek:. chill dude. :rolleyes:
    as I said "USED TO BE". key words.

    was upstate NY back in the '70's. got a ticket for driving barefoot.

    may have been a hippie rousting though. long hair, high, driving slow out in the middle of nowhere.

    was back when you got a ticket for possession of small amounts of weed. looooooog time ago.

    No flipflops here, but if you see me wearing pants you can bet they will be sweat pants or track pants (unless at a place that requires jeans) however 20f is still shorts weather for me so that's not too common. Even below 20f if it's sunny and there's no wind, I just don't get cold easily but I do overheat easily.

    Think there was a picture of me a few years ago in a facebook group walking across a truckstop lot in shoes, shorts, and hoodie during a heavy snowstorm.

    I’m a dry van guy most of the time and for me the less miles and more rate is were it’s at I have truck trailer paid for my biggest expenses are truck wash and family currently but since having the equipment payed for for almost 3 years I have been able to slow my roll and wait for better rates than killing my self and equipment by running those 3k week a week.

    But back to the topic
    I have to agree do what you want in the cab and be professional out of the cab. mans you can still present a professional image while wearing flip flops it just takes spending a little more money when buying outfits that’s all

    This has been covered before. Here is almost exact thread Last July:
    https://www.thetruckersreport.com/t...er-drivers-what-certain-drivers-wear.1522221/

    And here is my response then:
    Well here is at least one good reason not to wear flip flops:

    CDC - Strongyloides

    It is a parasitic disease caused by nematodes, or roundworms, in the genus Strongyloides. The parasites enter the body through exposed skin, such as bare feet.

    Most people who are infected with Strongyloides do not know they are infected and have no symptoms. Others, particularly those who are on some immunosuppressive therapies, may develop a severe form and, if untreated, become critically ill and possibly die.


    from the same CDC website:
    Most documented infections in the United States occur in immigrants, refugees

    I rest my case
