George & Wendy Show
"A tornado was coming and my own Mother heaved a queen-size mattress into a 4-by-6 bathroom with one arm while simultaneously dragging and throwing me under it with the other. She broke the door off the hinges."
"The trifecta. First: giant, billboard-sized boobies are a definite distraction, I don't care who you are... Second, get a CDL in three days? On what planet is this legal or sane?"
"Life is easier when you can read people. Any situational outcome is pretty much decided in the first five seconds of the transaction."
"While I don't think it's necessary to wear a tie to garner respect, I do feel it's necessary to properly cover your genitals when in public. Please. For the love of God."
"The more truckers I meet, the more I realize the good ones really are patient people" and other notes on merging.
"I keep my eyes peeled for a pet while we're on the road. Some of the best dogs I've ever had were strays, and it would be appropriate to find the truck dog on the road...." If only it were so simple.
"George says Larry is a figment of my imagination, but I'm pretty sure I don't shop for anti-fungal socks and beanie weenies online, unless I do it in my sleep, and, well, that's another story...."
