Why is it when your trainer puts you up in a hotel for their 34 hr reset it is a 2 hr walk to the nearest shopping center (read Wal-Mart)

Why is it you can drive for 100 miles with the windows down and flies won't fly out, but as soon as you roll them up they are bouncing off them?

Had a fly drive me nuts for 500 miles today. Flying around my head all day. Hubby finally got him...

Why is it that the moment you open your door or even crack your window at a customer, a fly or mosquito will inevitably find it's way into your cab, hide out for a while, then dramatically make his presence known to you 50 miles down the road?

Right? RIGHT????? this has got to be one of the most annoying things. I usually roll down both windows hoping the air will suck them out, but apparently flies have superinsect abilities to defy the laws of gravity and air pressure, because they sure are not affected by it!

Why is it that bees buzz around my truck when I stop and then decide to check out whether or not I'm a flower when I get out to do something?

I get this too! They like to hover around during the eyebrow of my truck and the grill area, where all the bugs are splattered. What's up with that??

Why is it that:

people on the on ramp entering the interstate feel like they need to driver 45mph until they hit the interstate, THEN speed up? the on ramp is for ACCELERATION! Step on it!

or:

people who drive past you on the left, and then pull back into your lane 2 car lengths in front of you, then just ride there. I swear, my truck is governed at 65, I do 63 on the cruise most of the time, but there are days when im having to drive 55 mph most of the time, because every time someone whips in front of me, I have to back off and open up the gap between myself and them. makes it really annoying when you do this, then get back up to speed and as soon as you do, someone else cuts right in front of you again, then you have to slow down again...etc.

I was driving through iowa a couple of times and i swear, this happened like every 3 to 5 minutes....ARRGH! lol

Why is it that drivers feel the need to fly through parking lots after the sun goes down? I'm waiting for some fool to hit my dog, they'll wish they never met me.

Why is it showers are always full when I'm short on time. Doesn't matter if it's morning, afternoon or night.

I agree, these are hands down the two most annoying things people do out here besides the really unsafe stuff like texting.

Just today two people cut me off like that while I was climbing a hill. I gave each of them a blast the air horn while they were merging, but they merged anyway, forcing me to back off in order to keep a proper following distance. I don't understand why people do this.

Why is it that in the truck stops with the narrowest parking aisles, no driver will back all the way into the hole on either side of you, making it impossible to get out??
