SWIFT Stop Whining I'm Frustrated Too / Student With Idiot For Trainer/ Slow Witted Idiotic Freaking Trainee/ Slow White Incapable Freightliner Trucks/ See What I F'd up Today/ Sexy Women In Freightliner Trucks/ So What! I Freaking Tried/ Sure Wish I Finished Training/ ......Schneider- Stupud Country Hicks Now Employing Intoxicated Driver Education Rejects. After 23 years,7 with Swift, OTR I had WAY too much time on my hands.

I love a good laugh, and the other night I was talking with some of the other students of Celadon who are at various places in their training. We came across the topic of acronyms that people have came up with over the years and some of them are downright hilarious. Would it be an issue if we built this thread up with some innocently humorous stuff?

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

Tandems:

Tandem Axles

A set of axles spaced close together, legally defined as more than 40 and less than 96 inches apart by the USDOT. Drivers tend to refer to the tandem axles on their trailer as just "tandems". You might hear a driver say, "I'm 400 pounds overweight on my tandems", referring to his trailer tandems, not his tractor tandems. Tractor tandems are generally just referred to as "drives" which is short for "drive axles".

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

Interstate:

Commercial trade, business, movement of goods or money, or transportation from one state to another, regulated by the Federal Department Of Transportation (DOT).

My wife really likes the one for KLLM. - Kinky Little Love Monkey. Now she is constantly on the lookout for the little love monkeys. Cracks me up.

There's a link to it if you haven't seen it yet. If I couldn't get a T680 or a W900 from Kenworth, I sure would want one of these.

Electric? Nah! Then you can't hear the pipes! I don't care if it's electric (I like to save the environment, so it's kinda surprising that I don't care about something electric)... I also don't like the styling. Looks way too big. I like the Nikola Two's styling better, but still don't like it.
