My truck broke down. It won't get fixed until Monday. I am 2500 miles away from home. That is all.

Ridin' down the highway
Goin' to a show
Stop in all the by-ways
Playin' rock 'n' roll
Gettin' robbed
Gettin' stoned
Gettin' beat up
Broken boned
Gettin' had
Gettin' took
I tell you folks
It's harder than it looks
It's a long way to the top
If you wanna rock 'n' rolldrive a truck
It's a long way to the top
If you wanna rock 'n' rolldrive a truck
If you think it's easy doin' one night stands
Try playin' in a rock roll banddriving a truck
It's a long way to the top
If you wanna rock 'n' rolldrive a truck
Hotel, motel
Make you wanna cry
Lady do the hard sell
Know the reason why
Gettin' old
Gettin' grey
Gettin' ripped off
Under-paid
Gettin' sold
Second hand
That's how it goes
Playin' in a banddriving a truck
It's a long way to the top
If you wanna rock 'n' rolldrive a truck
It's a long way to the top
If you wanna rock 'n' rolldrive a truck
If you wanna be a star of stage and screen
Look out it's rough and mean
It's a long way to the top
If you wanna rock 'n' rolldrive a truck

Article on NYTimes website a day or two ago had a front page story about the shortage of long-haul truckers in this country (100,000) I think right now... Trucking companies sending recruiters into inner-cities, retiree developments etc. loking for bodies to fill the cabs... Some are equiping the cabs with satellite radio and allowing spouses and family pets to ride along to get people to sign up...

Hell, I made sure I got one with free internet access. The company will reimburse the $20 taxi and the motel, and pay layover.

You mean "gullable" morons, that can take it in the ass without a reach around and LIKE IT!?

I can't, for teh life of me, understand theses companies and their ethics.

and DONT feel bad, I dumped 3200 bux into misc. stuff on the truck last month, bought a house last week, and NOW my head gasket goes out (2500-3000 more bux).
Timing is everything I guess

I've been driving for almost 18 years and I hated it at first but let me tell you I've paid my dues and have made a very good living. Better jobs and higher pay come with experience. Be patient and it will all work out in the end..........Trucks are man made and they do break...you have to take the good with the bad
