    I am sure that’s not what he meant. But you know that already.

    One of my pet peeves:
    The news and possibly law enforcement calling a pickup driver a "truck driver" therefore demeaning our industry and those of us who have spent a portion of our life learning to be professional.

    exactly

    every time there is a pick up truck accident, it's made to sound like a big rig.

    not just CNN, it's stuff like this, that all the local news channels do as well..even the local newspapers.

    "tractor-trailer crash, snarls I-95 for hours"

    1) it was a class B truck

    2) it was a pick up truck with a small trailer

    we know it as culling the viewers to "tune in at 11:00"

    if any news organization, were to give a TRUE description of the facts, no one would.."tune in at 11"

    in the meantime, people WILL believe it was indeed a REAL tractor-trailer

    it's a wonder i do not waste my time watching the news.

    other than to tune is, and see if the news gal, and the weather gal, and the traffic gal, are wearing mini skirts.....then, i'll watch....might even record it, to look at them again, and again, and again.....

    then have my wife ##### at me for doing so....lol...lol
