That is what somebody told me this week! Here's how it went down:

I stopped in the T/A near Lexington, Virginia around 3:00 a.m. the other night for my thirty minute break. I stepped in the restaurant, sat down at a table, and a rather large and friendly waitress plunks down a cup of coffee on the table in front of me while saying "Here's your coffee Dahhlin' what ya gonna have to eat?" Now she didn't know it until I told her, but I don't drink coffee. After I said, "Well, thanks for that, but you might want to give that to the gentleman who just sat down over there, because I'm not a coffee drinker," she just blurted out, "Well, you a'int no real truck driving man then are ya?"

I guess I'm gonna have to start drinking coffee, because I really would like to be a "real truck driving man."

"Pour me another cup of coffee, it is the best in the land, I'll put a nickel in the juke box, and play me A Truck Driving Man."

Anybody familiar with the old song that those word's come from?

That might just be the most stupid thing I've heard.

No, I'd have to agree......you have to drink coffee if you want to be in the big leagues.......consider it a show of solidarity.

How can you not drink coffee? Don't you like happiness?? I'm drinking coffee right now.

I do feel like an outsider... It's a strange thing about coffee and me. My wife drinks it every morning, and I actually love the smell of it, and I wish that I could drink it - I usually will try a cup once a year during the cold of the winter, because the smell is alluring to me, but it always has the same result. I get sick at my stomach. There's something about coffee that just doesn't work for me - it's actually a disappointment, but I've had this issue for so many years now that it doesn't bother me so much... until my waitress insulted my manhood over it!

You might have to wear a Viking helmet and carry a sword or something so people won't question your manhood. Just tell em coffee makes you feel bloated and slows you down when you're plundering and you miss out on all the good stuff.

Good job G-Town. Now, I've got another musical trivia question for you guys. Who was the once popular rock band who did a version of that song?

Have tried it with a truckload of cream and or sugar? You even drink the glorified hoit chocolate "cappuccino" machine style. That way you would have the proper cup, as camouflage. smile.gif
