She is 21. Leave it at that. I guess Kody you have been married or you would know better than to assume any women are over 21.

Of course I am..... But serious Starcar is 21. Pssst *whispers so quietly that Starcar can not hear* She baby sat Jesus while fighting of dinosaurs one hand with a stick but you did not hear that from me.

Lynn he is lying if he tells you I said that! smile.gif

Didn't she also put Moses in time out for parting the Red Sea incorrectly?

Funny story... I got my kids to ask my ex what dinosaurs taste like when we were camping one time.

I kinda find it hard to believe that a female trucker would prostitute herself. You spend hours doing an honest day's work and you got a long day ahead of you. Last thing on your agenda is take up a lady of the night job. Plus, I heard it's easy to hack the CB radio.

You would be amazed at the things that happen out here! Just you wait and see and yes it really does happen. Not as often now but it does.

I've seen some fairly leathery females at the TA stop on I-76 near the Ward exit in CO. We're talkin' 2-3 million miles of bad road ... ... wonder what TA stands for? Truckers/Tramps Anonymous maybe? lol.

Seriously, call the number I gave earlier. The "Lot Lizard" as they are called, are actually human beings, that in the vast majority of the cases are being coerced into doing these things. There are countless videos and news stories (the Sunday Omaha World-Herald, from yesterday is one) that talk about this very thing.

what do we call all these disqusting men that flash their lights at me and honk in parking lots?

Typical men? confused.gif

This isn't a lot lizard story, but it's unique. I used to pick up from this place in Downtown Chicago maybe two or three times a month. Most of the time this one homeless guy would come to the truck with a story begging for money. I mean he was a complete mess. This wasn't just some guy down on his luck or having a bad week. This guy looked like he had done this for years and years.

Anyhow, every single time he'd approach me he'd have a different story. I must have heard 25 of em and every time I'd give him a couple of bucks just for the effort he put into the story.

One time for fun I asked him, "Don't you recognize me by this point? You've told me about a dozen stories so far. You should know my name by now." And of course he played it off like he would never do something like that!

We'd all like to help people make a better life for themselves if we could, but unfortunately it's rare you really get that chance. Sometimes the best you can do is give someone a couple of bucks and wish em the best of luck.

I have to be honest. I don't think I've ever really considered the possibility that they're being forced against their will by someone hiding in the background somewhere. I guess that's never happened to me so it's not something I would normally consider. I guess I just assumed they were making their own choices.

That sure puts a different light on it.

YouTube has some good videos on it, put out by Truckers Against Trafficking, and The Wellhouse.

BTW, I-20 is known as the Human Trafficking Superhighway.

My name is David, and I am a Trucker Against Trafficking.
