    No, it is NOT "part of the lifestyle". 13 years and I have never relieved myself inside of the truck. Doing so while driving is flat out disgusting...and dangerous.

    Yeah I don't get why all these people are ashamed of it. I wouldn't believe anyone who has been driving for years if they told me that they had, never not one time, peed in a bottle. It's simply too fantastic to believe. In the middle of a blizzard they want me to believe that they put all their clothes on, walked all the way inside through thigh deep snow just to pee!!!! And they did this several times!!!! No, I'll just smile and nod and not believe another thing you say. Peeing in a bottle is very different from throwing it out the window and just leaving it there.

    Get a new trainer, Certainly most of us at one time or another have streched a few things, but you are not required to do any of that.

    The indusstry today is about running legal, this guy whom called himself a trainer is certainly not a trainer and his kind are weed out these days. If the company was the way he portrainted them to be you want to go somewhere else anyway.

    from your discription he is a danger to have on the highway, his personal habits I would not put up with for a second, Im sure the company does not saction his actions.

    Dont quit, get even. This guy needs to be reported to the safety department of your company.

    Before starting my level 1, the officer asked me to move my truck away from the bullhauler I was parked beside. I must have raised my eyebrow because he waved me off and said "don't ask."

    Hang in there Op.... you gotta thicken your skin up if you want to be a trucker, don't let the pee pee bottles scare you, get your experience in and get a local driving job so you can park it & go home at the end of your day 🏁
