I met this trio of extremely gracious folks showing an amazing amount of kindness and generosity earlier today, in the parking lot of a Flying J a bit west of Salt Lake City. I’ve heard and read requests of the general public to show more benevolence towards truck drivers during these times, but this is the first example I’ve seen in person. The bags held a nice assortment of healthy and regular snacks. If the lettering on their sign is too small, it reads: “Thank you drivers! Come and grab a bag!”

While waiting at a light today, a car passed me in the opposite lane. The two ladies inside both gave me a smile and thumbs up as they passed. I was touched by that, perhaps more than they know.

Yes, every so often the public is reminded of the importance of truckers and they give us a different finger than they normally would.

In Nelson WI, the local bar/inn is doing free meals and showers for truckers :)

I had one lady give me a big smile and thumbs up, and another wave.

Sure wasn’t because of my good looks. Lol
