I know what they are saying, but it's a little naive...try spending the night on a receiver's lot with no access to facilities and looking like Beaver Cleaver in the morning.

What do you mean?

The stereotypical truckdriver being a slob with a beard, compared to the more often portrayal, of a clean shaven, uniformed driver, usually figured as union worker. The beard comment was a Joke, dude. I get the premise of an unkept driver, How many days have you felt like driver #1 after driving your brains out to get to an appt. time, just to get put into a line. What is the diff? It is the individual that determines there own fate. If I show up at a receivers on time and looking like I just ran through the bowels of hell, as long as I have the attitude of, "Here is your shipment, Sir" I should be treated like the "Pretty boy" .wtf-2.gif right?

Heres my opinion, its the same guy. Pic on right is him getting loaded, then he stopped at every all you can eat buffet on the way to receiver. Gained 40 lbs, Never shaved or showered and ran out of good clothes. He was so late they took foever to unload him.

Seems like there are no problems with understanding the issue that this illustration is communicating. Would you visit an online service that tells you an average waiting time at locations after seeing this ad?
