    Sounds like then you have never showered at Bosslemans locations in Nebraska. Thier shower rooms make pilots look like the slums.
    GAPrincess Thanks this.

    I'm so new I'm not sure I've got the W on new. LOL

    I've never even been to Nebraska but I hope to get there. Maybe I'll start keeping a record of all the showers I use and grade them. Small minds (meaning mine) are so easily entertained. :biggrin_2559:

    As for the tipping: I like to tip for things....I'm not stingy. I just didn't know it was okay.

    So............I called back and asked for their mailing address and had to tell them why. The guy who was cleaning the showers got on the phone and told me "no no no! You were the first person to find me and thank me for keeping the showers clean so don't dare send me money." We had a nice chat, very nice young man.:biggrin_25525:

    Hey Texas Nana! Good to hear from you. Keep in touch with all experiences. I am soaking it up since I want to start Swift training school in June.

    I was pretty impressed with the Petro in North Baltimore OH
    (I-75/#167) this week. Last time I was there it was a 76.
    The entire lot was in pretty good order,standard Petro chow that sucked.

    Yes do go east young lady :) but dont go past the Miss. Gutter. er river, to many people, and to cluttered.:biggrin_25520:

    Call/ write Pilot corp. offices and tell them how impressed you was with that PiLOT,and the person (make sure u give his name) Tell them you hope that that put something in his employee file, reflecting your positive impressions during your visit.

    Ya sure a tip is nice but only goes so far. But a nice comment ( as will a bad comment)will stay in thier file for ever. I used to be in management in my past life, and when our custormers would comment about an employee, we would note that in the persons file. It helped us in the futur , when it was time to promote people.
    Texas-Nana Thanks this.

    If you ever get thru Idaho on I 84, stop at the Oasis truck stop exit 182, they have tubs you can almost swim in with the shower in the tub, nice shower rooms indeed, i like nice big tubs you can just soak in, sometimes thats better than a shower,, my opinion anyway,, have Fun Nana.
    GAPrincess, Texas-Nana and 25(2)+2 Thank this.

    Yeah, I thought the same thing when I first went on the road, I believed the showers and bathrooms would all be dirty and nasty, but I love the truck stop showers, its amazing when you tell non truckers how much you love the showers on the road!
