Opinions please, what image comes to mind when you think of truck drivers?

Just wondering what exactly people think of truck drivers. Reading a couple of the posts and it would seem that many of you envision a country bumkin, redneck, Nascar loving, girl chasing, illiterate, uneducated, unshaven, dirty criminal who is out to get you at the first opportunity. Seriously.....just wondering.......

    I am an OTR trucker and I must admit that your envisioning is accurate. There are many of us who are gentlemanly , but the work we do tends to push us into an anti-social attitude. On the good side , we are independent , considerate , we have a great sense of humor and we do a necessary job efficiently and safely. In short , I would not trade my job for any other.

    Nuttin wrong with that. Well, maybe the uneducated dirty criminal part, but hey, nothing wrong with chasing girls. As long as your not doing it in your big rig. The main problem with SOME big trucks is the tailgating and pulling out in front of smaller vehicles.

    All I know is that they must be somewhere high up inside that cab. I never get to see them like I do some fellow automobile drivers.

    It does not might desire to be some ill loss of existence horror tale. a competent horror tale you are going to be able to desire to write is something with numerous embarrassment. think of the 'horror' of having to sing or dance in front of hundreds of thousands and messing up? there is an thought.
