    I’ve started keeping a fermenting bottle around and places like that get it dumped by their office entrance.

    I’m joking of course but the frustration is real

    You guys need to drive for a better company.

    My company has a provision in their contract that drivers MUST have access to a bathroom. We are authorized to drive away if one is not available and it's a live load.

    Many years ago I worked for a local company delivering truckloads of packing materials in a day cab. One customer I was docked for a few hours and they refused restrooms so I pissed on their building next to an open dock in plain view. You couldn’t see my bits but it was obvious what I was doing. They yelled and called my company. I said what else was I supposed to do. After that we were allowed restrooms. Back then I didn’t care too much about job security but I wouldn’t have done it now lol.

    I think I’d rather lose my job than go in my pants.

    This thread cracks me up. People act like it’s some unspoken big mystery the truck drivers have to go to the bathroom like everyone else does. When there’s no bathroom around, what do you think truck drivers are doing? Perhaps improvising? Lol now I don’t use it very often but I have the capacity and set up to go number one or two on the truck should it become absolutely necessary. Let’s be real. And none of us old timers with enlarging prostates have to get up in the middle of the night to go wee? At 2 AM in the morning you’re gonna walk all the way across a quarter mile truck stop to use the bathroom? Let’s be real. Everyone knows where we’re going. It’s not a secret. We just act like it is

    Working, supervising shipping docks of a very busy j.i.t. automotive supplier to General Motors we did not allow Truck Drivers in the plant. Often times they came in flip-flops (no steel toes, an insurance requirement). We didn't have extra staff to chaperone a truck driver to ensure they didn't get ran over by pickers, tuggers, forklifts and robots.

    Worse part, i turned a blind eye and "helped" many drivers UNTIL we had a bunch of Canadian Drivers of Middle Eastern descent who would use our communal bathroom handwashing sinks as showers. I'm talking stripped down buck naked washing johnny with no shame.... a few always wreck it for the many.
