Sounds like a disturbing soap opera. And as a lifelong American, having a fist fight at a stoplight sounds like, SERIOUSLY?! Stopping your truck to have a random fist fight?

You obviously didnt grow up.in the Northeast. Common occurance in NJ and Philadelphia.

I may not have grown up there, but you’re gonna tell me it’s common practice for two drivers to hop out of their 18-wheelers, at an intersection, in traffic, just to have a random fist fight? I was born in the morning, but not THIS morning.

Have i seen 2 semis on a highway. no. have i seen one driver at a stop.light get out of a car and start banging on the windshield of the car behind him and them duking it out? yeah.

have i seen one guy chase another driver down the street shooting in the middle of Washington Avenue in Philly? absolutely

A guy on 9th street grabbed one guy out of the parked car in front of me then dragged him to my car and shoved a gun to the other guys head. on MY car. so yeah, i have seen random fights.

if you ever listen to the CB it isnt hard to imagine it happening.

have i seen 2 random truck drivers get into a fight at the fuel pump at the Birmingham Pilot, yeah. they were fighting over the squeegee

you must have been born in a good place that morning.

Birmingham Pilot

That says it all right there. I've seen all kind of things going on at that Pilot. My wife has heard so many tales of that place, she refuses to let me park there.

I refuse to stop at either the Birmingham Pilot or Flying J. They are both ghetto trash heaps. Nothing but the dregs of humanity are at either one. I won't even stop for refuel at either.
