With over 200,000 visitors a month you guys can imagine the crazy emails I get from time to time. Today has been a super slow day so I thought I would share one I just got a few minutes ago. This is great:

There is no truth on your site, only lies. Truckers are the worst, most dangerous drivers on the road and the worst part is their unearned entitlement to drive however they please. Every claim you make about the innocence of truckers is so provably false that your site can only be a joke, like The Onion. Or it's merely industry propaganda, which is worth about as much as what I leave in a portable toilet. I could argue every one of your "truths" into the ground without even breaking a sweat but instead I'll just keep on doing what works best: calling you psychos in to the police every chance I get. Nothing makes me feel safer on the road than seeing a semi NOT on the road. My only advice is to just stay home, drones will handle your job without garbage attitude or intentional reckless driving from here on out.

I thanked him profusely:

LMAO! Thanks, I really appreciate that. I was having a rather boring day and didn't even realize all it would take is a quick bout of petulance from a maniacal lunatic to liven things up. I think I'll share this with the forum. Things have been slow there today too.

Thanks for the laugh!

I'd have to say my favorite part is that this guy called us psychos with garbage attitudes. Gee, I wonder why this guy thinks that about people he encounters in public? It can't be any sort of mirrored reaction he's getting in response to his own attitude or actions.

I always think it's funny when people who are jerks think it's everyone else that's being a jerk. They don't even realize they're causing it in the first place.

Haha! I'm pretty sure I saw that person today. They came flying around me on the right shoulder shooting the finger with one hand out the window, while the other hand was laying on the horn! God bless him! He made both you and I have a little smile today.

So....until that drone tech is perfected, just how does RML expect to receive his groceries, furniture, sundries, etc.? Maybe he will drive his Prius directly to the producer for everything he needs...

This person clearly doesn't realize everything they own and eat was transported on a truck. The materials to produce those items were also transported by truck. The logistical backbone of this country is it's massive and diverse trucking industry.

I'm concerned that this person has their head so far up their rear end that they may be oxygen deprived and unable to think clearly. In fact their life may be at risk.

Coincidentally I have 43000lbs of an active ingredient in laxatives in my trailer...... Maybe I can help?

If he hates trucks so much he should get rid of everything he owns. His computer, clothes, car, house, food etc. He would have none of that without trucks. In one email he proved he is the crazy one. He has nothing better to do than that. He probably has trouble driving his car.

When I was running sand and gravel I mentioned to my boss that maybe we could get helicopters. You know, the kind that sucks up water and then spills it on the fire. I though maybe we could get a big claw and just grab some stuff fly for 5 minutes and deliver...

He told me it would never happen. 😞

He’s probably against the drone thing too.
