    I delivered here at Byron Center, MI at the Spartan Foods DC (who BTW, unload fast for being a unionized shop). I managed to grab a spot at the Mobil TS just down the street. I was about to knock off for the night when I heard a pounding on my sleeper, not a light knock mind you but a super hard almost angry pounding. I get up to find 2 girls offering their services. I politely dismissed them even after a quick flash. I swear I probably have dents in the side of my sleeper from those two!

    People don't realize how loud that is in the sleeper. You could hear a light tap just as easily.

    Well yeah that would be ideal. I've had the same issue waiting at a shipper then they send some yard guy over who thinks they have to dent your truck to get your attention.

    You got to learn to rock the cab while you sleep. They see that cab swaying side to side and they keep on walking. Well, that's my theory anyway. Try it out and let me know.

    I've had other drivers say "wake me up when you get up". Instead of knocking, I stand on the steps and hold on to the handrail and rock him awake. Kinda like "kinder, gentler" , right ?

    Knew a guy that was parked on the side of the road sleeping, trooper used his maglight to bang on the side to wake him up and told him to move. The next morning he saw the dents! But at least he didn't get a ticket.

    Ha, if you park in my way and block me from getting where I need to go your truck may end up on fire. I'll let someone else beat on your door to wake you up. Lol
