George & Wendy Show
The bond between truckers of all stripes is real. It was reinforced for Wendy recently when a nephew went missing and she put the word out to drivers through social media.
"I should destroy all of my notes, because if anyone got hold of them, they'd surely think I was nuts, and possibly dangerous."
"Being on the road is hard for everyone in the family, even those who don't really know why you're on the road."
"I was hanging by my shorts on the second step of a Freightliner. The fact that my face was almost pressed up against the side of the truck kept me from having to witness the hundreds pointing and laughing at me."
The people who make the rules of the road should have to see a grown man running around in his underwear in the middle of the night before they make everyone park at the same time.
Have you ever had to dodge "a guy in full clown makeup and a guy with a snake wrapped around his neck stopped, both out of their cars and arguing in the fast lane? No?"
After a conversation with Wendy, a four-year-old to her Mom: “That lady said he brings everything in a truck, he brought my shoes and he's going to bring our baby when it comes!”
“Miss, could I get you to smell this for me and tell me if it's good. The date says today, but I never trust 'em. Can't smell too good, myself.” / “You should ask your doctor if you have questions!”
