PostHeaderIcon 6th Annual Truck Driver Appreciation Week

Image9How often do you think, “I wonder where this came from?”, when you are at the grocery store, sitting on your furniture.. what about the materials used to build your house? I bet your answer was never. Don’t feel bad, you are among the millions of others that never think a truck driver supplied it.

All too often, truck drivers are not thought of or appreciated. Most of the population doesn’t even understand the importance of this job and what these men and women sacrifice for US. The only “easy” thing about being a truck driver is physically driving the truck. Even that isn’t easy at times. Imagine how you feel trying to navigate the roads in the rain and snow… now add roughly 70,000 pounds to it. Doesn’t sound fun, does it? Most truck drivers I know love the open road. What they don’t like is 4-wheelers. That would be you, in your car or SUV.

Before I met one of my good friends, I had a lot of misconceptions about trucking and truckers. I bet you think they just get in the truck and go. That’s just so difficult right? Wrong… Before every driver can even head down the road, they have a multitude of things that they Semi Truckneed to do first. What do you do when you get to work? Punch the clock and begin. Not these men and women!  They have to know EXACTLY what the weight of their load is, what the tractor/trailer weighs, what to do if they are overweight, can they legally drive to a scale to even find out if they are legal weight. Yes, shippers do screw up and it’s on the driver! Which I personally think is garbage but, I digress. That’s not even all of it. They have to know if they have enough time left to deliver the load on time, take a shower, eat, do routine maintenance,  do I have the permits that I need, pre-trip inspections, bridges or tunnels on the route… *deep breath* I really could go on and on but, I think you get the idea.

I used to love going shopping with my  Dad. It was always an experience. The most fun I had with him was when he was looking to buy a new truck. Car shopping was the best! He had the average Joe look about him so sales people always figure that he couldn’t afford what he was looking at. I didn’t understand why this entertained him, when I was a kid. As I got older, I began to see the humor in it. It was mostly about people judging him by how he looked.

I think the most fun I have ever had, while buying a new vehicle, was in 2002. I purchased an SUV off of Ebay. The dealer listed it very low thinking that there would be a bidding war and he would make a fortune. That didn’t happen. I remember sitting there, watching the minutes and seconds tick away. I just knew that someone was going to high bid at the last moment and win it out from under me. To my surprise, it didn’t happen! I picked up the SUV for a steal. It was located about 600 miles from where I live. When my Dad went to check it out, the guy actually tried to talk him out of buying it. We laughed about it for many years after.
