    Rotflmao you're too sleep deprived. I've walked over to the wrong truck before. But by the time you're 5ft away you should be able to recognize the unique features of your own truck. Dashboard crap. Filthy hood. Missing parts lol. Whatever.

    I’m still a trainee and I haven’t seen anything too horrible that would make me squeal like a little piggy, besides really needing to commandeer a stall after some delicious truck stop food and all 3 are occupied, freakin worst nightmare right there man; I think you’ll be fine as long as you don’t run into Buffalo Bill after he bought a fresh bottle of lotion, might make your skin supple instead of feeling like a rough old dog, but beware of the hose and lipstick

    My wife did that 3 weeks ago, a Wilson truck parked next to me while she went to the bathroom during the night. Scared the other driver pretty good lol.

    You would think she would have noticed there was no brown pitbull sitting in the driver seat waiting for her to get back in. My pup refuses to relax unless we are both in the cab. Also, the guy hadn't closed his curtains yet which is the 2nd thing I do after setting the brakes for the day.

    Lock your doors. Had a friend who had money from their wallet stolen at a truck stop while they were sleep a few months ago. They didn't close their windshield covers so im guessing someone watched them go in the sleeper bunk and waited.

    If you park at a non-truck stop( random dirt lot in the middle of nowhere), you better lock your trailer and keep your gun closeby.

    That was his first thought lmao, of course it didnt help that I laughed my ### off when she told me. Then again she is a little touchy about that since a female cop in San Antonio harassed her at 0430 a few years ago. My wife dresses nicely, much nicer than any recreational reptiles I've seen.

    Bull spit. The best places in the world to park are middle of nowhere dirt lots. Sounds like you are one of those "drivers" that is afraid of his own shadow
