    That truck driver you flipped off? Let me tell you his story. | StarTribune.com

    Just thought this was share-worthy.

    A reminder that we generally don't know what's going on in anybody else's skin, save our own.

    Good story. Unfortunately, it has similar for many Middle-Class Americans.

    This thread makes complete sense..
    The guys from yesterday who understand what has happened in this country are disgusted.
    I'm one of them.. The new fuck ups come along with no idea how things work and don't give a shit. Owning a business today is like having to work for your employees and the Government.... What a fucking mess.

    That blows, Blue. Seriously blows, and I'm betting it's a big part of why our economy is crapped out. We NEED small businesses. They're the concrete that holds all the bricks together, IMO.

    it doesn't mean the driver is not an ass or all hopped up on speed and deserves to be told to fuck off.....

    What the hell are you talking about? Would it kill you to actually stay on topic vs following someone around to have your little tantrum?

    ie grow up. Somebody called you a name, so you have to go on a little swearing binge? Did it help? Feel better? Want a tissue?

    OK now go for it, toss your little fuck this fuck you, blah blah etc at me while you attempt to untie those knots in your panties. Tragically, I won't see it, as I add yet another obnoxious child to my ignore list.

    Good grief. They should rename "US Message Board" to "The Nursery."

    OK sorry folks. Back to the actual topic....

    Truck driving is no easy life. I've never done but known a few and anyone who thinks so is IMO clueless. Of course that's no excuse for them driving like aholes, but on avg I'd say they tend to be better drivers than the avg non-truck on the road, easily.
