Why do the people with the "UGLYIST" legs wear short pants? Don't they have any shame? Real truck drivers don't wear
shorts. I have never seen so many ugly people in my life, why does trucking attract ugly people?

i have been a trucker for 20 1/2 years,and will tell you real fast,you never used to see truckers wearing shorts and sandles. truckers used to be looked up to by people. now they look like bums or wanna be rap stars. let look like that,a fool will always do themselves in.

I think it's tacky to wear shorts arriving at the customer. Wearing sandals is tacky as well as wearing sweatpants. If you can't wear regular pants because you can't find a belt large enough to reach around your waist, lose weight.

modern day truckdriver: wandering through the truck stop {oh i'm sorry,travel center} hat on sideways,baggy shorts,flip flops,cell phone accessory stuck up on thier head like a air traffic controller,dragging a subway sandwich behind them. truckers used to be cool,concrete cowboys. now they look like dorks.

AMEN, That's why I'm trying to quit driving OTR for good, going straight to "Plote" in the morning, I know a Dump truck is seasonal, I wish I had Ready-Mix experience!!! Prairie is pouring alot of concrete right now for the I-355 extention to I-80. Screw OTR.

I only wear shorts when my Billy Bigrigger shiny belt buckle and chain drive wallet are in the shop to run the rack on 'em.

When you start buying my clothes to get all crappy and greasy when I'm chaining down a load then I'll accept your ability to make me wear what you want me to wear..... or you can hit the lotto and then adopt me and that might work too<G>.

I'll agree with folks about the butt-dragging outfits some folks wear in an attempt to be "chic" but they look like crap regardless of what you do for a living. Their attempts to make everyone think they're budding gangsta rappers is as ludicrous as those drugstore cowboys all gussied up like a Laramie belt-buckle winner who've never even got close to a merry-go-round plastic pony.

Personally I think anyone that covers themselves with some sort of tattoo or sticks garbage in self-created holes in their bodies is out of his/her mind but all I have to do is see them for a minute, then they're gone.

Now I'm getting to be an old enough fart where I might even show up on top of my trailer wearing white shoes and a white belt and double knits just like all those golfing retirees do when they go out on the town. And if I do, what the heck business is it of anyone else? Laugh if ya want but just don't bust your too-tight, shoulda really got a 38" waist pressed jeans, gosh you walk funny in them pointy-toed gator skin boots with them spurs jangling across the parking lot when ya do laugh. We all have our crosses to bear and my shorts really shouldn't be one for you to worry about.

Don't get caught with only shorts and faggity sandles. I was picking up a load of feed in missouri last summer and this guy comes over to my truck and says: can i borrow a pair of pants and your boots? I said what? then he explains that the shipper won't allow him on the dock without pants and a pair of shoes on. I told him there was a Wal-Mart about 40 minutes away where he could pick up proper truckdriver attire. I also informed him nobody wears my Durango boots and my pants already has one a**hole in them.

Hey there's good points to that type deal too. Last Summer I had on part of a crane boom. Loaded it in Lexington KY on Friday, it went 25 miles past the house. So when I went to deliver it Monday AM I had on my obligatory shorts & sneakers. Got to the job and was told I couldn't get outta the truck without long pants & steel-toed shoes. Fine with me I said, just have the boys leave the chains & binders on the trailer & I'll hang 'em up when I get out to the road. Heck, they even hung everything up on the headache rack. Best hot, humid morning I'd had in a long time. But it sure was warm when I got out to make sure everything was there B4 I left. Whew...

I am sitting here in my made in Brazil sandels,( thinking if pressed in the morning I guess I will have to put on my made in China boots, wishing rew wing still made a good wellington in Minnisota so I could wear shoes again LOL.

I guess my t shirt that says "you cant fix stupid" ( made in USA 100% cotton, and my black shorts made in usa 100% cotton wouldn't be good either if I have to get out and watch the crew unload all that stainless steel kitchen equiptment.

Oh well, I do have a pair of long pants, but what do they doa about those buster browns in shorts in the summer time at chemical plants?

Not worried at tall, I didn't know you wore shorts.......I was merely stating; I'm use to seeing 'Pretty Girls with beautiful LEGS wearing shorts, that's all, no offense.
