It's weird because since I read this story a few days ago I wondered why other truckers haven't come forward with the same issue.
 
2012-06-06 08:30:35 AM
Yes, but isn't the sun on the opposite side down under?

Not the first time I've seen that. Was related by marriage to someone with a similar affliction but he didn't need a Dr. to tell him why.

Yes, but people also drive on the wrong side of the road in Australia so that would cancel things out.

If only there were some sort of chemical or cover that would block out our skin form the harmful radiation form the sun.

And this, kiddies, is why I look like I'm in my late 20s while I'm actually in my early 40s. I spent most of my life avoiding the sun, and my skin is awesome.

I know 24-year-olds who look older than I do because they got in the habit of tanning. Sure, they were fashionable when they were around their peers (although I shall never understand why having burnt skin is chic) but it killed their skin, and it will only get worse.

Seriously, kids: Avoid the sun. A tan is not healthy; It's baking your epidermis to a golden brown, just like a trussed-up turkey in an oven.

And yet it does make one wonder what the truck driver would look like if he were black?

Presumably far less sun damage, thats why they have that adaptation.

I'm guessing this was the kind of idiot who was proud of his "trucker's tan". I've known people like that. They think it makes them look like a rugged representative of their career. `Same goes for farmers and road workers.

These guys don't wear sunscreen because it's girly.

CSB time:

When I was a Cop in NM in the 70s, the seasoned cops wouldn't let the rookies drive. So you would spend all day driving around getting a tan on your right arm, or left, depending upon how long you had been a cop. You could always tell the cops and how long they had been cops, bu which forearm was darker. Even the brothers.
I took to riding a motorcycle with a tee shirt on for my days off, just to even my arms out.

End CSB.

No, silly. Your left side is the only side that can possibly get exposure to the sun if the driver's side is on the left. Your right side is completely in shadow at all times.

As an old guy who has lived in Florida all his life and drove cars back when they didn't all have AC, I can testify. My left arm is noticeably more sun-damaged than my right from hanging out the window back in the day.

He also developed the odd habit of flipping a scratched coin to determine whether or not to kill the hookers he picks up at truckstops.

Yep, it is. He'd either have to only drive south in the morning and only drive north in the afternoon. Or if he stays here, only drive north in the morning and only drive south in the afternoon.

CSB:

I like to drive when I go back to the midwest to visit my family (about 9-10 hours depending) because I can take my dog and not deal with the TSA rape brigade. Last summer I took the trip during July and didn't even think about sunscreen, which I normally do for outside activities because I'm a pasty bastard. My left arm and side of the face got absolutely cooked. I knew I was in trouble halfway through my trip but didn't want to make an extra stop. I got some sunscreen at my last stop but the damage was already done. I generally do this to myself once a summer accidentally before I remember to use sunscreen all the time. I can't believe people do this to themselves on purpose.

So, what? He only ever drove in one direction?

That's why you need to build up a protective layer of dirt, grime, and piss spray to prevent one sided tans and complications like this. Baths are the enemy, truck in your own funk.

Housie is an equipment operator and truck driver, and likewise he's got rosacea only on the left side of his face. Tiny bit on the right, but most of it on the left.
