12: Sleeping At The Rest Stop
When you step into a big rig, most of the popular models have a sleeper in the back. Sleeping in the front seat can turn out to be a nightmare for several reasons. “My dad told me a story about one time when he was sleeping at a truck stop. He didn’t have a sleeper, so he was in the seat. Another trucker was pulling up to spend the night, so the trucks were nose to nose. He woke up in the driver’s seat of his truck with a truck with its lights on looking like it was coming head-on. Said he almost pooped himself.” – via Money Awaits.
Obviously when truckers are tired, anywhere will do to take a rest, but this trucker had a bit of a rude awakening. This just goes to show that sleeping in the front seat isn’t always the best option for most truckers.
