    Hey I’m 2 weeks in. I just bump the dock, walk in there and tell them Im not sure if this is a pick up or delivery.

    I delivered to gas stations in and around San Francisco. Most OTR drivers refuse to get anywhere near SF. I've also done OTR. Both have their challenges but local fuel delivery definitely demanded more skill.

    Sounds like you are one of those out of shape road drivers sitting in the break room waiting for someone to hook his set. Then you waddle out to the truck with your Red Bulls and blood pressure medicine in hand.

    Dang, sounds like road drivers live rent free in your head. Can’t handle actually working? It’s raining out, you call off again so your panties don’t get wet?

    I did peddle runs all over the continental Us. City driver's work their butts off, been there done that. Maybe you should crawl back to your mommy's basement and type again. Ever use a tree to unload? Flip 55 gallon ballers out of back of 53 footer onto a tire? Deliver to a fish hatchery on a dam? Gas well in back wood west Virginia? Job sites on an interstate? In the woods on a dirt road? All the city driver's and myself have done that and more. I hate line hail drivers, Premo dana laze pos's. When someone like you comes on here and talks down to my brothers in arms it pisses me off. I may make more than a peddle man now but they work much harder than I do. Lay off my brothers!
