My sister and her boyfriend are "truck drivers" for a national trucking company. The two of them have been posting nonstop "truckers matter" bullshit for the last day or so. I finally called her and asked WTF? Turns out they made it back home for scheduled time off a day ago and are now refusing to get back in their truck and do their job for 2 weeks because they are "self quarantining." :rolleyes:

With the feds loosening rules and the shortage of drivers (apparently on account of the ones on staff being lazy), it looks like a great time for someone with a CDL to make some decent money while waiting for their real job to start again.

Here we have senior citizens or persons that are immune deficient that have placed and paid for orders at a local grocery store. The orders are being delivered by seniors in high school. Apparently the students approached the store and set the whole think up. They go to homes and place a flyer on the the door explaining how to order and pay. When the order is delivered they place it at the door, ring the doorbell and wait in the car to ensure it gets picked up.
Not hero's but they have my respect.

I thought for sure this would have been blasted all over InstaTweetFace but not a word.

Several years ago I had to cut a kids corpse out of a mini-van that got nailed by a couple pieces of shit fleeing from police. Am I a hero? No. I was doing my fucking job. Do your fucking job. Period.

My family has been in the trucking industry for 30 years now, my dad's been an owner operator for the last 25 or so. In all those years, I've never seen anyone pat themselves on the back as much as they do nowadays. There's this weird thing that they think their either in a biker gang or on the same level as a war vet for holding a steering wheel.

Nah man we're flat rate HEROS now, going in other people's cars during a dempanic. They could have the kung-flu, you never know where a customer's been!

It's such BS anymore. My father got out of it back in the early 90s because it just wasn't paying like it did before. My sister and her boyfriend barely scrape by making no where near what they could because they are too lazy to get their asses up and drive after taking their BS governemnt mandated break. I tell her you can't bitch about not making enough money when you blatantly ignore opportunities to get more miles and better paying loads and then choose to sit at home when there is a national pandemic occurring that needs truck drivers. Shit blows my freaking mind. It's a good thing no one else wants to be a truck driver or they would be the first ones cut.

Also the truck they drive is an automatic. Enough said.

Personally, I'm glad all these normal people are getting a pat on the back.
I'm glad that our society is realizing that celebs and big shots don't matter, but the truckers and clerks and nurses do.

Maybe we finally realize we don't need Hollywood, etc. Give props to the farmer and all that. I have no problem with this feel-good campaign.

Here we have people singing and clapping from open windows like fucking retards, instead of opening paypal and giving their favorite cashier some actual help.
