Wendy comes back from a cross-country trip ready to crown one truck-stop with the superlative of "best showers"...
"I am so sick and tired of literally stumbling over the trash from diesel exhaust fluid. When it's not sold in bulk at the pump, the amount of waste involved is incredible."
Another doozy of a restroom tale from Wendy: "I've written more stories about bathrooms than pretty much anything else, and if you didn't know any better, you'd probably think I was weird."
"Sometimes, sleeping on the road is hard."
In which Wendy responds to Whoopi Golderberg's recent trucking-related YouTube rant with one of her own. . .
The end of the Parkers' multi-stop load comes down the wire on hours. Wendy: "George really does amaze me sometimes. I would have been in the fetal position, sobbing...."
More self-dispatch learning curve for Wendy: "Sometimes, lessons are hard to learn."
