    Bobtails in semi parking spots is getting just as bad. No reason why you can't find a smaller area for bobtail rather then take a spot for a semi.

    It’s usually not company drivers. Those I see are usually New Americans/New Canadians who are most likely lease-operators. They probably have hardly a dime in their pocket or account.

    I like the ones that will go into an completely empty place and take an eternity to pump gas out of the only diesel pump, so I’m waiting behind them in my POV looking like an idiot. :biggrin_25510:

    That's what should happen. Meanwhile out in the real world nobody has the time or resources to micro-manage like that. I could say the same thing about buttheads who take too long getting cash out of the ATM or at the self checkout line at the supermarket or inattentive service at a bar or restaurant. There is almost no end of things that light my fuse nowadays. I just throw in reverse back out of there if the bozo is still sitting there after I've walked back out to my truck with my fuel receipt.
