Sleep apnea and cpap machines really irritate me.

Bruce, this response surprises me, Not! Lol. We all know how you feel about them. rofl-3.gif

Sleep Apnea:

A physical disorder in which you have pauses in your breathing, or take shallow breaths, during sleep. These pauses can last anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes. Normal breathing will usually resume, sometimes with a loud choking sound or snort.

In obstructive sleep apnea, your airways become blocked or collapse during sleep, causing the pauses and shallow breathing.

It is a chronic condition that will require ongoing management. It affects about 18 million people in the U.S.

CPAP:

Constant Positive Airway Pressure

CPAP is a breathing assist device which is worn over the mouth or nose. It provides nighttime relief for individuals who suffer from Sleep Apnea.

I could go on a epic rant it's been one of those days but I'll keep it short.

1. Other drivers doesnt matter 4 wheeler or big trucks.

2. Construction

3. Other drivers in construction zones.

One thing in particular is when a fellow truck is merging so i move over but he matches my speed so now i am blocking the left lane unable to complete the pass. How hard is it to lift a little and let me pass then speed??

Our trucks are SLOW so I've given up on moving over to let other trucks on. Most if the time I'd barely pull even with them before they started to outpace me. I just slow down to let them on unless there is no traffic at all.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

I noticed some typos in Rainy's post, which I'm assuming is because she uses voice to text.

Good thing it worked well for this post:
