Dear Mr Truck Driver

Let me start by saying I completely understand and respect your need for rest (duh, we’re in a rest stop) and kinda’ hoped you respected mine too.

However, idling your truck for over 7 hours is a liiiiiiittle much!  I get that sometimes that is very necessary, especially if you have a refridgerated load or you need to keep warm in the cab, etc … i get that.  Completely understandable … However, here are my 2 points to that:

Point a)  You were hauling an open flat deck – NO NEED for refridgeration there !!!

Point b)  We’re in Florida !!!!!  IT AIN’T COLD !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It wasn’t even so much the fumes we choked on all night … it was the release of the air brakes  – a very LOUD PPPPSSSST EVERY 27 SECONDS !!!!  Around midnight, I started thinking “Okay, I’m usually still awake right now, no big deal”.  2am – “Ummm, kinda’ tired”.  4:27am – “REALLY ??? !!! well, maybe there’s still a chance to get an hour or so of sleep”. 6:18am – “Are you kidding me ??  SERIOUSLY !! ??  Well, today’s gonna be a shitty day”!!!  You finally left around 7:15am – “Great, thank-you but my day’s already screwed…thanks” !!!  Now, I’m not angry … I just wanted to let you know (in case you didn’t realize your truck was running for over 7 hours – I get that sometimes we can all be forgetful).

Now, a good night’s sleep is hard to come by with a snoring dog & snoring husband.  But add this to the mix …

This is now my day … thank-you

Now, I don’t ask for consideration for myself … even though sleep is a good thing … it’s for all the innocent people that now have to encounter me today.  See, I’m not the easiest person to deal with – AND THAT’S ON A GOOD DAY 😉 … so just envision a quick mental picture of what I’m going to be like today (not pretty is it?) … These people didn’t do anything wrong – why should they be punished?  C’mon, now, just think for a minute.  These poor people …

Now, on another note … 7 hours of fuel???  I wouldn’t wanna pay that fuel bill !!!  HOLY CRAP … And dude, c’mon now … THE FUTURE IS GREEN !!!!!!!!!!!! Idling for over 7 hours – there’s nothing green about that … we ALL gotta’ do our part !!!  GREEN, not grey n’ black n’ full of fumes !!!

Next time … let’s share some consideration.  That’s all 🙂

… just sayin’ …
