As a woman driving a truck, I'd like to know what your experiences are in situations like having to change a tire, or other heavy duty emergencies.

Also, what is your favorite or least favorite horror story. I'd like to know how women handle problems on the road that a man would have less trouble with.

Change a tire ???? Is there one man on here that could change their truck tire?? This is equal pay for an equal day. There are no little fairies gonna fly down and help a Danzel out. Woman or man you climb your ass out the truck and do what you got to do.

I'm not asking for someone to do my job for me, nor am I asking for attitude. I've known men who could change a big tire with no problem and some who couldn't. I don't know of many women who can pick up a tire that large, unless you are a Gunhilda, which I'm not.

Companies do not want us doing repairs other than pop a light bulb. you message for.road assist and they send a road service guy you can roll.into a truck stop or terminal.with a list of things to get done.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.
