Doing a man's job!

| October 09, 2011

Dear Carolyn,

I am an attractive, (according to others) single, 32 year-old truck driver. I’m good at my job and work long hours like everyone else. My problem is that men in this industry don’t take me seriously.  They either think I am soliciting or going to crash my truck into a wall. I try to ignore them but sometimes I feel like quitting and doing something easier–like coal minning.


 Dear Wanda,

Women have to do everything twice as well as the men in this industry. Luckily, that’s not too difficult!

HA! Hang in there lady! You sound like you have it going on. Don’t listen to the haters.

I’m just say’n,
