I've seen some pretty clever lettering on the back of cabs. For some reason, they are usually on Petes. I'm assuming that these are O/O trucks.

Today I passed one that said: "She only smokes when she drinks"

I thought that was funny and gave the driver a big smile and a thumbs up when I went by. He gave me a big smile back at me.

What slogans have you seen like this???

That's a funny play on words with those song lyrics.

My first day arriving at Prime I had just checked in to the campus inn hotel and looked out my window.

It was the first time I had been away from my wife and kids for any longer than a day. I was still trying to wrap my head around not seeing them for potentially months.

This truck being outside my window did not help my frame of mind that day!

Oh man almost all the trucks at my last company had saying on the back. A few of my favorites were:

Cadillac $tyle

Black Magic

Prisoner of the Highway

Papa's pad when Mama's mad

And one that said "Peterbuilt dreams Volvo budget"
