    Alright guys. Do other drivers a solid and have some respect. ( I know thats asking a lot) When you get done fueling, pull forward, run in and hit the can, get a drink, pack of smokes and be gone. Its not the time to order food, shower and take more then 15 minutes to take care of business. If you need longer time, go find a spot in the lot and park. Nothing is more disrespectful then seeing 12 out of 15 fuel islands with trucks parked and not one is fueling. Ive seen guys wait in line over 45 minutes because some idiot has absolutely no respect or common courtesy for fellow drivers.

    It really is sad…the laziness, nastiness, and complete disregard for anyone but themselves.

    Being a trucker used to be a proud profession.
    Now it’s infested with drivers who only care about chasing money and doing the least amount of labor to make it.

    Had some moron the other day I pulled in behind at a Loves sitting at the isle with the pumps in their tanks. Saw him come out of the store with subway and a bag from Loves. Moved to the next isle, said something to him. He was still sitting like that after I fueled and pulled up and went in and came back out. As I was leaving some other guy behind him was walking up to his truck.

    Watched some A hole do it after pulling in to the pumps from the wrong direction just as the accident on the highway was cleared. Funny watching all those trucks pulling in and blocking him. He took his 30 min at the pump and those waiting refused to let him out the wrong way!

    It will never happen. This morning I was walking out of the pilot in Belmont Ohio after getting fuel. Truck in the very first Island is empty and there are cones behind it as if it was broken down. Guy walking off same time as me which is backpack on opens the driver's door toss is all his shower s*** in walks around to the back picks up the cones straps them to his catwalk and then gets in the truck. It just gets worse every day.

    Maybe he paid for reserved spot that wasn't available and thats what the TS told him to do?

    Maybe not if it was his own cones, its like its a regular thing for him.

    Certainly would be a good time to start up a wrecker service and have a wrecker truck on standby at a lot of these places
