    What's funny about all this is that they'll not allow you to use their precious toilet but they'll happily load a million dollars worth of freight on your truck and let you drive off with it no matter how you look.

    The toilet nazi's might grab you. Those type places have bullet proof glass and think all drivers are Charlie Manson.

    in my mind, if you are delivering or doding a pick-up, you are not general "public".

    Not like you just drove up and asked to use the facilities.

    Real truckers trip plan there potty breaks. You know after drinking a 24 once coffee with a high sodium breakfast it will be apx. 3-4hrs you will need to go. Maby I drink a monster drink after my coffee,didnt get much sleep. I know then I will have to relieve myself in an hour and basically every couple hours. Take a preemptive strike. Find a facility or pullover spot before it becomes an emergency. Same thing with the other way, only it happens only a couple times a week and its not such an exact science, but the first slight hint I need to go, I find a spot asap. I take care of things when I have the time to find a place before it became an emergency. Been at a shipper bad stomach, no entrance allowed had to stay in truck. Just grabbed some TP went running around found an alley with a big dumpster which is brutal but its a hell of a lot better than taking a ###### in my truck. I would never ever ever take a dump in my truck, just nasty if you think hard enough there is always some kind of better solution than that.

    Thinking some of you are just eating to danm much food. What the hell is with truckers eating like 5-6 thousand calaries a day? Do you think you are going to find yourself in a situation where you need to run 20miles wist a 50lb pack on? Maby unload and load your truck by hand in a few hours? Stop eating so danmed much food truckers! Your throwing a lot of good hard earned money down the toilet when you do that and your getting nothing useful out it. And its killing you to, and it makes you look bad. More food equals more stink (stink=bad PR) and more poop. Eat less food, carry Immodium AD in your truck at all times, eat small amounts of food, but which is high in sodium, so you dont pee as much. Less food equal's less weight which also means less stink (fat people develop some really nasty BO). Never pooped in my truck in my life. A few times had a bad stomach and pulled over on the side of the highway got between the sleeper and trailer took care of business, but promptly used immodium.
    Imodium AD is the best danmed cork money can buy. I have heard of all kinds of things or animals being a truckers best friend, but in all my experiences that little box has proved itself time and again to be this truckers best friend.

    As a wife/rider, many places don't even allow me. I have spent HOURS in a waiting room. A dog would be okay, but not me.

    For those reasons, we have a very large Folgers can. We have had to wait for hours at an elementary school - no outsiders allowed in halls, no port-a-potties. We just use the can, I dump and wash it later.

    I was Persona Non Gratis as a kid on the truck, it's no different now.

    Don't y'all know truck drivers aren't supposed to need facilities?

    The steel mill I worked for over 30 years had a large restroom right next to the shipping dock. It was there specifically for drivers because they didn't want non-employees roaming around in the steel mill looking for the rest room. They even had the plant's janitor clean it everyday too. There was also a large locker room with showers for the employees, drivers were permitted to shower there but only during off hours, not during the shift changes.
