    I know that truck color it is crst I never saw anyone else with that color and I also drove a few of them. Unless he came with his cdl at the training program there they tell us about the 5th wheel skid plate grease about why its needed.

    Watched an Averitt driver wash his truck at fuel island a few weeks ago. All I could so was shake my head.

    You could also get out of the truck and tell him to get moving. If I get into a pump and finish getting diesel and def and the guy in front of me is still there I'm finding them and telling them to move.

    He was in the lane next to me. Just amazing the lack of common sense anymore.

    Who knows maybe he was doing it to amuse you ha ha i knew a few drivers that loved doing that for a bit of a laugh i knew one of the kiwi drivers who just for a laugh pulled up at a truck stop to fuel up in MN in the middle of winter 17 degrees' in his singlet and flip flops just to get a reaction from the locals.

    Could be possible he’s just trying to revel in his status as a mega carrier driver.

    “Hey, everybody’s going to think I’m an inconsiderate slob anyway, so I may as well do what I can to fit the part”.

    Probably HIS broom, too precious to scrub that shiny 5th wheel.

    I hate to pick on him too much. Im just sorry that the tools around the fuel pumps are constantly not fit for the jobs intended for them.
