Has anyone missed the fact that all of us gross dirty truck drivers haul the produce and food?

What exactly does he think he is eating? Yeah.,.I could wipe stuff on all the unwrapped produce in my trailer before I out the load locks on.

What about the bugs crawling on a the produce before it is even picked????

Don't get me started on chicken and cow feces ....

Nope.. I was thinking that while driving earlier. Aside from just what is crusty drivers could do to the freight just think about hauling food after hazmat.... same trailer..

HAZMAT:

Hazardous Materials

Explosive, flammable, poisonous or otherwise potentially dangerous cargo. Large amounts of especially hazardous cargo are required to be placarded under HAZMAT regulations

Like my Mom used to say when I came in covered in dirt and mud," It's only dirt and dirt don't hurt." rofl-1.gif

The cruise ship comparison cracked me up. How many times every year do you hear about illness outbreaks on cruise ships. If you're so concerned about absolute cleanliness, you should become a surgeon or surgical assistant. My wife has an extensive level of education in the medical field but she will happily tell you that conditions in Afghanistan are less than clean. Also, you mention the facial hair and the military. Are you saying that special operators who are allowed and encouraged to grow facial hair are somehow disgusting and un professional?

If you'll excuse me, I'm going to go back to work on my wifes back tattoo before I have to head back out on the road. I must be a real scumbag because I have several tattoos as well as being an artist as well.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

Thank the Romans for that damn clean-shaven bit. I'd rather be a Greek who trips on his beard.

Egyptians also.

Hospitals might be clean but you are surrounded by sick people. That and they are the most likely place you can go where you'll wind up with a staph infection. LOL!

Hey everyone, Do you think we can revive the Truck Stop part of the Form? It might be a great service to any seasoned or newbie drivers out there. Items like comparing the major brands and Mom & Pop places, long ago and lost truck stops of the past, etc. Maybe I'm wrong but everyone has a nightmare or a special place to stop. Even some drivers I know that fuel where their company tells them to and then go to their favorites to spend the 10 or 34 hr. If not I understand as I see that this area of Trucking Truth hasn't been visited in quite awhile.
