Curious about truckers
Joyce W. in Alabama is interested in a trucker, and she wonders if he’s a “good bet.” Below is an excerpt from Joyce’s 30-question email. If you’d like to add your comments, write me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll send her a nice little package of responses from all of you.
Can truckers speak to current events?
The ones I’ve spoken with can, and they know the difference between Iran and Iraq.
Do most truckers have high school educations?
I can’t speak for all three million truckers, but I’d say that the majority of them can count to 100, they have GEDs or high school diplomas, and some even have graduate degrees. Are you concerned with their ability to conjugate verbs?
Do truckers have women at every truck stop?
Yes, there are women at every truck stop. Women aren’t “had,” and truckers aren’t all men.
Can truckers be faithful?
It’s not the profession, but the individual that you should question.
Do truckers have vicious tempers?
Yes, all three million of them. How silly.
To all you hot-headed, unfaithful, ignorant drivers, Joyce W. of Alabama is off limits. You can relax now.
