    Braindead pulling hazmat. Probably one of those guys that went through the Dumb and Dumber program that teaches you not to use your mirrors because you are not liable for what’s behind you.

    This person should never be allowed in a truck again.

    The truck fuel island was full of trucks! I really had to run to take a dump!

    I saw an empty spot at the fuel island, what was I supposed to do?

    The problem is somebody put those stupid gas pumps where that truck needed to turn.

    Looking at the tire marks left on the concrete he was jacking that trailer pretty hard in order to make that happen.

    I know the white Volvo is the stepchild of commercial trucks. However, I would like to take a moment to say thank you to my White Volvo. Yes I would love to be driving a long nose Pete with an 18 speed but my White Volvo allows me to keep my costs low and thus, more options in how and when I run.

    Because it was a used white Volvo I was able to pay cash for it and the price was cheaper than a used Honda Civic. Because it is a White Volvo it allowed me to become an owner operator due to the low cost of entry, which also equates to lower insurance.

    This White Volvo has never left me on the side of the road and has never failed to start.
    This White Volvo has helped my family not only be financially stable during this pandemic but to actually prosper financially.

    Yes, I won't get any thumbs up driving my White Volvo but I treat this truck well and it has retuned the favor many times over.
