We have another fantastic article from Rainy that everyone is going to love. It's called:

How A Strong Woman Deals With Offensive Behavior From Men

This article is filled with fantastic stories and truly exemplifies why I'm such a huge Rainy fan. She really handles life's difficulties the old school way. She's tough as nails and doesn't take any baloney from anyone. It's such a welcome relief to know that there are still people out there who won't choose to be meek and play the victim at every opportunity.

It's no secret that I can't stand this new "poor me" world we're living in today where everyone is constantly complaining that they're being abused, repressed, discriminated against, or offended by every little thing. I was raised in a world where you didn't go crying to your mom or seek professional counseling or start a shaming campaign on social media because someone said they didn't like your shoes.

Remeber "Sticks and Stones?" Rainy and I do.

This article is a hilarious look at how Rainy handles obnoxious men on the road. I think the folks here will appreciate her old school approach to things. Rainy reminds me of a cat - they seem so pleasant and cute until you aggravate them, and then quicker than you can sneeze you have a gash across your nose.

I love that approach. I wish more people would handle their business with a little toughness and character like Rainy does. I really respect her for that.

You're really going to enjoy this article. It's full of hilarious stories and sage advice:

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

Very entertaining rainy. To my shame I admit I used to be a bit of a dog when I was younger. Then I had daughters.

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Great article. dancing-dog.gifdancing-dog.gifdancing-dog.gif

I had always assumed you either beat the offender senseless with your broom, or just put a spell on them, turning them into a pillar of salt.

I Married An East Coast girl... She was from Connecticut. Got divorced four years ago... Got tired of her kicking my ass... LOL. I grew up in the Midwest and the women there are tough, and have a great work ethic. But those East Coast girls have an edge to them... A very sharp edge.

Rainy...Rainy...Rainy...

You hit a homerun with this piece. Loved it! If you ever write your book chronicling the Lady Trucker experience...I'd buy it and pay to have you sign it.

You're a really good writer, Rock Star and we should all feel fortunate (I do) you are willing to share this great stuff on the TT forum.
