    I'm very fortunate in that the work that I do I never stay at truck stops. Only very rarely and occasionally do I have to stop at a truck stop.

    Well today they made a mistake at the receiver and could not take my load and ended up that I really needed to take a shower. So off to the truck stop I go.

    I'm lucky enough to find an open spot and I back in.

    Now the air conditioning in my truck works extremely well. So I open up the door coming out of the cab of my clean ice cold truck and the mixture of super hot northeast summer humidity mixed with the scent of raw urine was so overwhelming it was like getting caught with A Hard Punch. It almost staggered me. Uggghhhh.....

    So please for the love of God, just say no! Carry a container with you, fill it with your urine while you are in the truck, and then carry it out to the grass somewhere and dump it out.

    I mean really I can only compare it to someone that urinates all over the walls of their home.

    You stop at these truck stops all the time. You're going to stink the place up for yourself or the next guy is going to stink it up for everybody else.. for the love of God just say no!

    Ive watched guys dropping a duce off the step of their trucks. Had one guy put a dozen full piss bottles on my catwalk and flip me off. Ive seen them piss between the rows and throw garbage out 3 feet from a can.

    Sadly this is the norm anymore. And people wonder why no one wants us parking near them....

    It's in a galaxy far far away where there is incredible humidity, incredible congestion, and the most expensive toll roads the world has ever seen.

    Yet it also has the best cheesesteaks, the best pizza, and if you are ever fortunate enough to experience a real New York City Bagel, you will know you are not in any ordinary place.

    Out on the island i used to get a freshly made bagel, bacon/egg/cheese, coffee n OJ for like $4.97. 2 eggs and heaping pile of bacon. Can't beat that.

    Up by me i have to go to Binghamton to get a good NY style thin crust. The few local pizza places around me aren't worth eating

    That's the only thing i miss about NYC is the food. Doing good service we would stop and try a new place almost every run. I ate like king for cheap

    I don't understand why people are such friggin pigs.

    Everywhere that you travel there's either dumpsters or trash cans somewhere close to you.

    Receivers almost always have Dumpsters right where you back in. Many receivers at least have a bathroom you can walk into or a trash can by the shipping office. Truck stops literally have trash cans all over the place and if there isn't one right next to you if you walk 20 feet away there's another one and if you walk another five feet you could just walk into the building and use the bathroom.

    I have been in this industry long enough that I get it, but honestly I just don't get it.

    Some people just aren't right in the head. You could put porta-potties next to every truck in a lot and some drivers would still decide to go drop a growler between trailers two feet from a grassy area.

    Instead of complaining about the pigs in the industry .. maybe start policing ourselves and have some fun doing it too....Why doesn't everybody Decide on a universal color .. say for example... Orange.. invest in paint ball guns and every time you see 1 of those dirty POS drivers doing something like throwing piss bottles or using the bathroom in the lot just fire away at the wothless tard.. then when he goes inside to try to get the paint off himself everybody will see he is a lazy POS .. F@@# most of those pigs are to lazy to wash their clothes so they will walk around with orange stains .. and again everybody will know they are a pig..
    H#!! shoot their truck& trailer too so every driver on the road know's their worthless trashy pigs too & if its a company truck then their company will also know they have a pig on the payroll

    I delivered a piano once, near ground zero, walked a block to a deli, had one of the best sandwiches I’ve ever tasted. It was surprisingly affordable. NJ also surprised Me. The old SS Diners, the affordable prices. I wondered how they make any money. Lots of competition, I’m told. Makes sense. Even the Lunch Trucks had excellent food. Same reason, Lot of competition from mostly first generation immigrants, who see opportunities the average American overlooks.
