What are some of the things you've encountered at a truck stop that is total nonsense and is something you see at nearly every major truck stop?

Dumb truck drivers. Just a few, mess it up for everyone.

Trucks being hit by drivers who can't be bothered to get out and look or haven't figured out what exactly the mirrors on the side of the truck are for.

OMG, how freakin' true is that? Lazy truck drivers + dumb truck drivers = The Truck Stop Follies.

I use them to make sure my hair looks good and to be sure there is no food stuck in my teeth!

Truckstops have bathrooms...they have mirrors in them and usually they work. Best part, you don't have to be 6' 5" to see yourself in them.

Once I pulled into a truck stop and there was nothing but reefers there. Hundreds of them. I was terrified.

Turns out it was right down the road from a Walmart DC.

But the most common thing I see is trucks going too fast through the parking lot, and the stench of urine in the lot. Once I saw a guy peeing under his trailer at the fuel island! Lazy and dumb both, for sure.

Reefer:

A refrigerated trailer.

The fuel docks, entrances, exits and driveways are blocked with drivers taking breaks. But only the first row of parking is full. The other four rows of parking will be nearly empty.

Sadly it's way too true.
