Rainy was the one that wanted to lull him with a Klondike, confuse him with manly calfs in a skort, and distract him with her tractors alarm going off. Finally bite him!

Oops wrong post. I thought you were replying to my Rainy comment, lol.

Anyways, It wasn't heartless. I nicely told her where she could go warm up. I was even kind enough to offer a cigarette as I sent her on her way.

While I agree that some drivers don't present a very good impression of their company at times (weather it's a man or woman) what a woman wears is in no way an excuse for any disrespectful activity by anyone else. I would hope that any respectable person that saw or heard this behavior would say something to put a stop to it.

Lol Rainy.. I have very long nails. They aren't acrylic but all natural. My manicure lasts almost 2 weeks because I won't even open a trailer door without gloves. I repainted them today.

Yes, I have a blow dryer, travel hot rollers, and a flat iron in my shower bag. Yes, I wear makeup every day, including eyeliner, mascara.. everything. I wear my favorite colognes (also in my shower bag which weighs more than it should). I wear jewelry and dress like a woman. I don't wear heels when driving but yeah I have some with me. I wore them today when my bf and I went out for lunch at this great restaurant we tried out because we had the rare opportunity to be bobtail and had more than the typical choices. Since it was cool out I wore slacks and a pretty sweater. Yep I love scarves and have several with me.

Customers are often surprised I am a driver, because as they say, I "don't look like one." What is a female driver supposed to look like anyway? I dress tastefully casual, but have more rugged type clothing for the few times I need it. I don't attract sleezeballs, and didnt, even before when I began teaming with my other half.

If you didn't see me getting out of my truck, you would probably assume I'm on my way home from the shopping or whatever and stopped to put gas in my car or grab a soft drink. Sometimes I actually wear a company logo tshirt and jeans. Now if Ive just crawled out of the sleeper when my other half has been driving. . All bets are off, but at least my hair is brushed :-)

Bobtail:

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

Hahha ur nuts. I don't go that way. But if Chippendale's were knocking on my door at night....I'd be broke.

Because I'm a woman I holler out the window to the hookers "sorry sweetie, I got here first. Try the green truck in the next row" lol

Tractor man..,I love you too. Even without the bite.

Sue...dang woman! You just made me feel like crap.

I had my first encounter with a lot lizard on Saturday morning. I was at the Flying J in Birmingham, AL. Came knocking on my door at 3:45 in the morning. I was like WTF do you want. She tried a bit about it being cold (it was, but that is beside the point). I kindly pointed out there was a nice warm truckstop 100 yds away. The part that really irritated me was my alarm was set to go off at 4:30.

I was at that FJ on Thanksgiving!!! I65 six we all just miss each other all the time. Hopefully you wouldn't call me a lot lizard tho hahah

They are less likely to slash your tires or pull your pin handle. I'm just waiting for one of them to be a cop and Rio open my door to find me in bed alone hahaha
