As Dr Seuss says oh the things you will see

Well my freinds this is a crazy and screwed up world we live in . And as i spend my working life as a long haul driver i get to see a side of the world most of you cant see. I see all the citys in North America from the back side. Not the pretty side you see on tv but the real city hiding in the back streets and industrial parks. The true underbelly of the place what i like to call the swub. That means the soft white underbelly. So come along and see our world and the many characters that are hiding in plain site on your highways and roads. my fellow drivers and the supporting staff that keeps them going.

My Day

Well the day started well I was up on time and on the road well within my schedule. When surprise surprise the day became some thing out of a worse case scenario book. Some body decided that slamming into a stopped car at 0700 am was a great thing to do. And then it being interstate 81 in Virginia the traffic backed up for seven miles at least that's where I was sitting in line. It was backed up well behind me so thousands of people got to relax and fume on the highway with me. Two and a half hours wasted and I will not get it back. Days like today can really throw off your groove because not only do you sit on the highway for hours watching a little rug rat picking his nose. But once you begin creeping and then move again your stuck in a pack of a thousand cars and trucks all wanting to make up lost time. So the madness and mayhem begins and you have gone from bored to scared for your live. There is nothing worse than a guy two hours late for work racing a family on vacation with a car full of restless kids and an agitated wife. They have no fear of an oversize load they do things that scare and amaze  me if I tried that my wife would kill me the semi would be the least of my worries. So my fellow motorist what can we learn from this RELAX when stopped on the highway and tell Junior to stop picking his nose and when we start moving remember your never going to get the lost time back so relax and go with the flow. My blood pressure will thank you.
