Why Can’t You Hear A Pterodactyl Go To The Bathroom?

Because the 'p' is silent.

I'm finishing up my CDL training and will get my license in another week or so. Super excited to begin training, but I'm concerned about when nature calls in the middle of the night when driving with a trainer. When traveling in my van I use a bucket, but if I'm driving with a trainer I don't imagine either of us would be comfortable with this. I don't have to do this every night but can't imagine waking up in the middle of the night and walking to the restroom. This don'ts seem safe and even if it was I did I don't think I'd be able to go back to sleep and would be exhausted the next day. I know some woman use she pees and a bottle and I could probably give that a try but I'm still not sure how I feel about doing this in the presence of a compete stranger. Any suggestions from other lady drivers?

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

Howdy Amy!!!!

I was certainly hoping a 'seasoned' female driver would have replied to this thread; unfortunately, none have.

I really don't know. . . my husband trained me, years back.... so it was just 'us' .... and nature's callings were, just . . . that. We've been together 22 years, so, nothing new sharing a restroom, LoL.

Seriously, at the time of my posting this, you may have already worked out your conundrum and/or come up with an amicable solution to the calling of life's situations. I sure hope so, and I hope you post back; letting us (and future female trainees) know what y'all come up with.

I would like to point out / share the fact that Kearsey indeed has a video, on just that. SHE's the female trainer, and has trained males as well, so ... yeah.

Check out her video(s) on this and other 'sticky' situations.... Truckin' Along with Kearsey

I'm not sure which company you finally DID go with, but I'm wishing you the best, going forward.

We (collectively!!) would LOVE for you to post a diary, in that section, if you have the time.

Stay blessed, m'lady!!! Keep us (me!) in the loop~!!

ps: I gotta tell ya . . . everytime I read the title of this thread, I chuckle.. LOUDLY~!!! HAHAHA!! rofl-3.gif rofl-3.gif
