My opinion isn't about men being offended by your article.

Women these days want to be treated as ladies but be a victim if someone makes an innocent compliment, smiles at them too big or looks at them too long. You can't wear a push-up bra and a low cut blouse and then cry sexual harassment when a man's eyes go too far down while you are talking to him. If a man pays you a compliment then say thank you and go on about your business. If what he says makes you uncomfortable then embarrass them and go on about your business. Either way give them back what they earned and go on about your business.

If I was easily offended in the workplace I would have missed out on marrying the love of my life.

No...write on!

If I wrote an article about some of the comments/advances I have gotten from men on the road and told how I reacted, would you be offended?

I ask because I have a dry, witty, sarcastic sense of humor. Some of my immediate remarks come out naturally and are hilarious when I look back on them. But I wouldn't want it to come across as man bashing or offensive to you.

Technically, women today would call male/female interactions like this sexual harrassment. I just more or less harrass back without the sexual overtures.

I wanted to.include it in a piece on taking everything so.seriously that it affects you, and how humor can save your sanity.

Go for it Rainy.

In todays overly sensitive, #metoo, PC environment - it'd be interesting to hear a perspective from someone we KNOW isn't easily offended, and doesn't take a complementary gaze as a setup for rape.

Guys that don't understand the difference between: "Nice Smile", and "Nice boobs (or azz)", likely have a bunk sock for a girlfriend, or have to take a personal day to sit at the free clinic often (or get robbed by a bf/pimp - or arrested).

I'm sure it gets tiring for the women OTR to be getting hit on all the time. Despite the influx of women in the industry, they are still in the minority. And some guys just don't know how to act, or the only girls they see have .jpg for a last name.

Let us have it. Those easily offended, are likely the culprits and can simply move on to the next thread.



Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.


Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

Go for it Rainy!!! My girlfriend and I had a talk about this. She is a new driver and a very good looking blonde. I told her what to expect at some point, but I don’t think she fully believes me as yet. Some men are just A holes. But there are still a few of us good ones around. I look forward to reading the finished product then sharing it with my girlfriend
