    Its disgusting but good advice
    I have been teaching my boys that there is nothing wrong with picking up trash to clean up the neighbor hood
    But teaching them to pick up trucker bombs may be a little harder
    We have become a country of watchers, afraid to do or say anything because we are afraid to offend anybody
    So as cowards our society just gets worse as we watch looking out our windows wondering what happened to the country our parants talked about

    I can't speak for everyone, only myself, however I just want to say that being fat or obese doesn't mean a person is lazy. I'm pretty fat and I would never do something like this, and I don't really know any other fat people who would. Some people are just ####### disgusting by nature.

    I'm gonna jump on this thread with my 2 cents. I'm going north on I-25 in New Mexico and I see on my guide there's a medium size truckstop up ahead. I'm thinking this is gonna be one of those gas stations with a gravel lot and a candy machine and lo and behold, it's one of the nicest truckstops in the country.I can't remember the name right now but it's got antique cars inside and everything is just super nice. Long story short...I get up in the morning and I'm the only truck left,but the fool parked next to me forgot to take his pissbottle with him. I walked about 15 steps to the garbage can and threw it away. If he had been there ,I would've opened it and threw it at him. I don't understand some people.

    Years ago, one of our shuttle drivers took the dreaded gold shower as he was dumping one of the trash cans conveniently placed in the truck parking lot. I wanted to remove the cans, forcing the drivers to walk to the dumpster; my supervisor donned the rubber gloves, dug through the trash, finding evidence pointing to the guilty drivers-(team operation). Two days off, letter of concern in their file, and the option of termination or take the HIV test thing ( peace of mind for the shower recipient). Voila', word spread quickly, and the yellow bottles ceased to exist in our workplace.

    If the fines and/or punishment were severe enough, I think you would see a lot less of the pee bottles. I'm talking something like $1000 fine, and/or suspension of your CDL, and/or lots of community service in your home state,

    Get serious with the punishment, if you are serious about eliminating the crime!
    With all the cameras, camera phones, etc., catching the perps should be easy, I know I #### sure wouldn't just toss something out the window if I thought it would lead to any of the above mentioned punishment.

    This appears to be an older post but it's one I totally agree with.

    I've never seen such a bunch of pigs (sorry, staff, I just cannot think of a nicer word for them) than some of these "new" drivers. I don't know where they came from or who (allegedly) raised them, but anyone who is so lazy or stupid that he can't pour his or her own pee out of a bottle needs to go back to whatever pigsty that created him or her.

    I've been out here a long time and I've never seen a bigger bunch of pigs than the ones who claim to be the "new breed."

    Maybe these trainee companies could make sure their babysitters ("driver managers" or whatever cute names they call them) tell their babies (so called professional drivers) to empty their pee bottles daily.

    Ugh.
