    I think it's possible. And even though it probably won't happen in our lifetime, it's probably a good idea to get in shape. A lot of these foreign drivers have come out of some pretty bad conditions and they are probably more prepared for survival than most domestic drivers.

    Some of them have my respect, but I will not tolerate feet washing in the sinks. I told a couple of them to go back to their trucks and get a bucket. They acted like they didn't speak English, but stopped.

    :biggrin_25512: Don't have to be that way. Individual changes change the society we live in. Thing is common courtesy has a ripple effect when used correctly, but the bad thing is so does the lack of courtesy.(if you don't get that the first time, read it again... I promise it makes sense)

    :biggrin_25510: washing feet in the sink in a public restroom is just nasty... makes you wonder what else has been washed in that sink.

    I'm not so sure we WON'T see it in our life time. And I'm an old guy, at that. But there is no such thing as "common courtesy" on the road anymore, or for that matter, much of anywhere else.

    I know the media is no longer talking about it, but I believe just from what I am seeing, that incidents of "road rage" are escalating...

    I think there's definitely more incidents of road rage. It could come in this lifetime, I'm not ruling it out, all it would take is a couple of suitcase nukes in a couple of major cities and we'd have complete chaos. Maybe I'm hoping it's not in my lifetime.

    Well maybe we'll luck out! See you on the road Bronze!

    You can always tell those a##holes, look for adidas pants or jumpsuits, soup bowl haircuts, they smell like vegetable soup, And they usually have sandals on so they can dip their toes right where you're gonna brush your teeth!

    Serbian pride stickers are also a dead give away, I'm not against anyone looking for a better life, but these pieces of filth need to assimilate into AMERICAN SOCIETY, if they are so proud of what ever 3rd world toilet they're from they should go back practice the finer points of animal husbandry.

    And yes I do hate everybody.......:biggrin_25510:

    Yeah like grease covered, filthy or urine soaked hands and fecal matter from the guys that just used the toilets/urinals? Those same hands turned the faucets on before they even began to wash the contaminants off.

    God forbid a fella take his shoes off and wash his sweaty feet in a "public sink."

    If this is what you guys are complaining about now a days (and it really bugs you) then let me suggest you get out of trucking and go barricade yourselves in your houses (lest you be offended again).

    How can you be sure of that?

    I have been in many homes on medical calls. You would be surprised at some of the places and how they live.
