Truck stop stories from a surly long haul trucker (retired)

The mystique of the trucker's lifestyle has been glamorized, dramatized, dreamed about and longed after, but mostly, it's a dull, mundane day to day experience. Except when it's not.

Here's a memorable moment from about 40 years ago I posted on another forum.

Sometimes when you are weary from long hours on the highway you see something that just strikes you as really funny. I had twelve stores worth of housewares on my truck spread out over three hundred miles or so. I wanted to get them all off and go home but it didn't look possible. I managed to get off 11 stores and number twelve was in Marietta, Ohio and I arrived just after they closed. I went over to the Evergreen truck stop to get something to eat and when I went in the men's room to wash up there was a condom machine on the wall and someone had written a warning on the machine with a sharpie: "Don't buy this gum, it tastes like rubber".  I laughed at that all the way through dinner and even every time I thought about it over at the Knight's Inn motel that night.
