The Diesel Truck VS. The Regular Driver

smoke-truckI don’ t know how you drive, but tend to mix it up a bit. From staying ahead of the rat pack to just cruisin’ and smoozin’, it really depends on my situation before I hit that road how I drive when I’m on the road.

I’ve had the privilege of riding in many vehicles from monster trucks to your local tow truck service but I’ve never been a big rig truck driver (Speaking of which….how COOL would it BE if someone made a Diesel Truck Limousine?)  OMG!  That would be super awesome.

Can you imagine how many friends you could fit in a truck limo?  It would be huge!  You could have your whole stinkin wedding party AND the other guy’s in it! I’m going to have to write that one down and remember when I’m a millionaire to make a diesel truck limousine.  I’ll call it “DEEEEEEZZZZZZ   El TRUCK Limos”   Why not? Right?

Anyways…back to driving.  I HATE driving with trucks….sometimes.  Other times I love it!

Let’s talk about why I can’t stand Big Trucks on the Road:

1. Driving in a small car in the snow during a snow storm scares the shit out of me.

2. When a Truck Goes BLASTING by, I literally hold my breath.  That is some scary s*&t!  If you’re not privy to being completely clobbered by a muddy, disgusting mess of slushy  dirt goo, then you’ve missed out on how awesome (extremely sarcastic) it is to drive with Diesel Trucks in the winter time.

Let’s talk about why I LOVE trucks on the road:

Truck Drivers are very interesting people.  They know lots of people and are easily entertaining with their stories.   If you ever want to have fun one night, invest in a CB radio and get on the line.  It is a very eye opening experience to talk to drivers.

One time in high school, I decided to be a complete idiot and was listening to truck drivers. They all have a lingo.  Everyone has a nick name and sometimes they all act like idiots.  (Much like Facebook…people will be more freakish when they are not physically in your presence)

So anyways…I called myself “Baby Blue Eyes” and took on a persona of a very ditzy lady with a deep deep country twang.   I had a few “bites” that wanted to go to a private channel and talk. Nothing perverted but …truck drivers are horny guys.  I didn’t feed into that…but the conversations always led to ..”Hey you wanna meet up at a hotel?”    What!?

Now..saying all that…Not all Truck Drivers are like this.  I’ve met some really great down to Earth Fathers, Mothers and Wise old guys.  (Which reminds me…I have to tell you about Smitty and The Doobie Brothers)

Ok…so there you have it just a few things about trucks and cars.  Gotta JET!
