Ok so I just have to get this off my chest, probably one of the grosser things I've seen out here...

So it's around 7:30pm and I'm pulling into a Love's parking area. Grand Junction, CO in case anyone's wondering. Anyway, I'm driving along the lane, hugging the left side as I go and scanning the aisle for my chosen spot. It's not that busy out here so I see 3 open spots next to each other and decide I'm going for the middle one. Nice and easy.

As I pull past the spot and come to a stop so I can start backing up, my tractor comes to rest in front of a parked truck with the sleeper light on. No curtain. Then, as I turn my head and roll down my window in preparation for the backup, I see it.

It takes my mind a moment to realize what I'm seeing, but when I finally do, I almost start gagging. There, in the sleeper berth , I see an obese, pale-skinned, middle-aged man with glasses, laying on his side on his bed with his head propped up on his arm, staring at a laptop computer screen. He's also completely naked. With the sleeper berth light on. And no curtain. At nighttime, when it's pitch black outside.

Thankfully, all I can see is about the top 40% of the entire scene. The bottom 60%, including what I presume was a very unimpressive central section, was obscured by his dashboard. But what I saw was more than enough. I think anyone can guess what he must have been looking at on the computer screen.

So as this is happening, he looks up and immediately catches my eye. I pull the old "quickly look in another random direction" move and start backing up as fast as I can. He shows no shame, no embarrassment; out of the corner of my eye, I can see that he just continues to lay there, staring at me.

It's guys like this that really give truckers a bad name. I mean come on, man!

Sleeper Berth:

The portion of the tractor behind the seats which acts as the "living space" for the driver. It generally contains a bed (or bunk beds), cabinets, lights, temperature control knobs, and 12 volt plugs for power.

While moving to South Carolina, my wife and I were laying over at the Olive Branch, MS Pilot/Flying J. A driver, bobtailing, backed in next to us. (really nice volvo, with Bulldog trucking) Him and his wife got out, and went in, after they got back, and got in the truck, a few minutes later, you could see the thing rocking, and we heard the wife screaming, sounding like she was being murdered. Not sure if they were finished or not, but a police car pulled up, and the officer and them had a lengthy conversation, before he left. They shot us a look, and my wife, outspoken person that she is, rolled down the window, and said. "Sorry, but it wasn't us, if he was giving it to you that good, you gotta good man, so why should we care?" and then rolled the window back up, and smile at me, set her chair back, and went to sleep. Meanwhile the guy was just laughing, as his lady looked dumbfounded.

btw, that is a really nice truck stop, albeit a little small, with a Subway.

Bobtail:

"Bobtailing" means you are driving a tractor without a trailer attached.

PC, some truck stops have a designated parking area referred to as "party row." I'm assuming you must have been right in the middle of it. rofl-3.gif

Never heard of that, how do I determine where party row is?... So I can, uh, avoid it of course!
