Why You Will Never Get Mad at a Truck Driver Again

Snow Storm Puts Fargo Area  Residents In Limbo As Flood Waters FreezeMany drivers hold a great deal of animosity towards truck drivers, myself included. Last night a truck driver waited until the last possible minute to turn out of Rudkin Road onto Main Street in Union Gap, so I had to wait on the busy street for a grand total of ten seconds before and I threw my hands in the air in frustration while mouthing the sarcastic, one-word question “Really?!”, hoping to get my point across when we made eye contact.

However after reading an opinion piece from the StartTribune I started feeling more empathetic towards truck drivers, mostly out of guilt. A dispatcher wrote about the life of a truck driver, specifically one in his dispatch unit and after hearing about the pressure he’s under to make delivery appointments and the family hardships he’s currently dealing with, I can’t see myself getting upset with a truck driver in the future and I’m sure you’ll feel the same way after reading.

Here’s the opinion piece by Dan Hanson for the Star Tribune. Let us know what you think.
