Why You Will Never Get Mad at a Truck Driver Again
Many 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.
