I was thinking about picking up the trade only issure i can think of is not being able to bathe i have to take a dial soap shower at lease every other day or i get boils would this be a problem

It may be if you get stuck somewhere in like WY for couple of days if roads are closed. Otherwise there is no issue to get a shower every day, if you'd like to at any decent truck stop.

We have some comedians here.rofl-2.gif

Since I got a good chuckle out of some of those responses, what are some strange "shower" behaviors you've actually witnessed? Someone on another forum mentioned seeing someone hosing himself off in a fuel lane. Have you seen anybody doing strange things to keep clean out here?

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

I had COVID back at the beginning of October. It knocked out my sense of taste and smell. Still haven’t got either back. The good news is that I can’t tell if I stink, so I don’t feel compelled to bathe very often. One of the perks of COVID

Well, guess they DO !!!!

It actually WOULD be cool to get some ppl to share their 'shower oddities' stories in a thread, like RD mentioned. I'm sure I can get my ole' guy to share some, past ..... I've got zilch. When I was OTR with him, I grabbed a shower (alone) event free... just took longer than was allocated, oops! Left it as clean as I found it, with the towels & cloths provided; brought my 'own' for me. (And a huge one, for my big hair.) No bad memories, but the guys catcalling me...looking for my snoozing guy in the rig, haha! He moved it .. often.. on purpose. It was a 'game.' (I didn't care for!)

Rainy probably has videos of 'shower hour' travesties, nothing 'internal' tho.. Gonna look unless she shows up, haha! This could be fun!

(Then again, this could get 'ugly...' LoLoL ! )

Best y'all!

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

Did see once at a Love's a year or so ago.....Was waiting for shower, with couple other guys. 1 guy IN a shower, was taking a LONG time, the lady kept asking if he was ok??

When he emerged he had to be 500+ if not 600 pounds! Barely could fit out the shower doorway, so yeah, guess it takes him just a lil bit longer than "most" lol

Finally, also learned that drivers from India, why they go in the toilet stall with a drink water bottle, either full, or seen em refill it in the sink??? Guess they don't use T.P. after done lol they splash it clean, kinda like in the Philippines, NO toilet paper used much Ohhhh Hellll ,,,,No sorry,,,, I'mma takin' baby wipes or sumpin'...... a 'splash splash', ain't gunna cut it lol
