    When you pull into the truck stop to fuel and you have to piss really bad. On top of that, the lines at the pump are all at least two trucks deep and all the parking spaces are full.

    Yeah, sometimes I just hate to stop though. I feel like it's better to kill two birds with one stone, fuel and go to the bathroom. Though it's a good idea to stop before you fuel, if you have to go, so you won't be in a hurry cleaning your windshields etc. I've never left my truck in line, I'd be too worried the truck in front would pull up and everyone would go crazy.

    Pull into the fuel island and run in real quick. That's what I usually do. It's not like I am going to be hanging out in there for a long time.

    What is wrong with us (I say us because I'm as guilty as anyone) in this industry that we think that the job is so important we don't have time to do natural, biological functions of the body (not relieving ones-self can lead to organ infections), time to shower, time to relax properly, time to eat properly, time to da a little exercise?

    I park in-line and run in. If somebody doesn't like it, too bad. It's all temporary and in 30-40 years they will be over it.

    If I have to go real bad, Ill stop at the next T/S and let it go. If I feel I can hold it, Ill usually wait for a rest area. That way, I dont have to worry about a crowded truck stop, parking, and negotiating traffic just to get back on the road. For me, most R/A breaks take less than 7 minutes so I dont bother logging them.
    If I were in the fuel line and had to go real bad(has happened a few times), I usually will hold it until after I fuel. When I start to feel the need to p1ss, Ill stop drinking liquids. Ive been able to hold it for quite a while that way, but it is uncomfortable.
