Have any of you been injured in a strange or embarrassing way while in your truck? I don't mean bumping your head (I do that several times a day).

For example, i had to repower a load for a driver today (which Rainy correctly predicted when I sent her the load info). I didn't know why until I met him at the TA near Erie, PA. When he gingerly exited his truck I knew something was wrong with him. I asked him if he was alright. He proceeded to carefully roll up his pant leg and reveal a very painful looking cluster of large, angry blisters. He had been making coffee and the pot had tipped and spilled all over his right leg.

Ouch... burns are terrible. When I first started going out with my ex and she moved in with me I spilled a cup of coffee on me when I was just wearing underwear. I burned the hell out of myself... And she laughed as she saw me dancing in pain... I guess I should have learned something from her reaction?

Perhaps he didn't have his seat adjusted properly.

Ouch!! shocked.png

I get really dehydrated, especially in winter, because I love coffee and don't drink near enough clear fluids.

One day, when exiting my truck from the passenger side, both hands slipped off the hand rails because they were so dry... and down I went... in a fuel aisle no less.

I was showing my student what NOT to do. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

I now use hand cream lol rofl-2.gif
