Clemkadidlefark: Sex 'workers' ...?

Jebus Farking booha, sex worker???

You mean whore? You afraid of using the correct term whore? Prostitute? Mudder Jones has to go with  sex worker? What is this, Denmark?


Eh, people have been saying that forever. Besides, there has to be a term that goes beyond "person who takes your money and then lets you put your penis in her" to include the other types of people in the sex industry--adult film actors, strippers, escorts, dominatrixes (or is it dominatrices?) and so forth. It gets a little cumbersome just to say "all those dirty nasty horrible people who I certainly do not spend half my day thinking about but they're all WHOOOOOOOOOOORES even if they're not standing on street corners in those tight little miniskirts where you can practically see everything."

I like your intensity on the subject, though. ;)

Funny one from the site - {cut & pasta}
I was in chicago one night after my delivery I stopped at a hot dog joint on cicero ave, got my order to go, got in the truck and started to leave when a hooker jumped up on the passenger side of the truck and asked me if I wanted some company, I said no as I shifted into 2nd and told her to get off my truck, unsatisfied with my answer she then said well give me some french fries then, I said NO (I was hungry) as I grabbed 3rd gear, I then explained to her that we were approaching 30 miles per hour munching on my fries, she looked at the ground, jumped off did 2 perfect somersaults landed on her feet and flipped me the bird. they must go through training,

Clemkadidlefark: whore?


They both make a living in their bare feet
Catching one is like a treat
They both hang out right there by the Shell

They both walk slow a simple pace
Both afraid to show their face
But only one has a built-in place to hide

Turtles and whores
Turtles and whores
I love them, turtles and whores

If you've been a trucker for over a year and you've never run into a prostitute in a truck stop, I'd say it's not as much of a problem as they'd like to make it seem.

Well they don't knock doors as much as people let on, but if you have your CB on while parked in a truck stop there are plenty of them soliciting.


Also any seedy motel in the middle of nowhere will be lighting up the CB like a wildfire. It can be incredibly annoying if you aren't in the market, but then again CB is often annoying if you aren't bored and easily amused.

I drove a truck for about 5 years, 04-09, over the road.  For the most part you don't get any trouble out of the hookers, it was actually pretty rare to have them knock on my door but it did happen every now and then.  I always assumed that they developed an instinct for who would take them up on it or not.  But I can still name all the places I had them knock on my door.  Evansville, IN, Toledo, OH, Chattanooga, TN, Gary, IN, Harvey, IL,  Hartford, CT and....

The greatest CSB of a Pavement Princess encounter I have ever heard, and happened to me.

2 a.m. I was coming across I-10 to deliver at a pipe yard in Houston, TX.  Stopped at a pretty seedy looking truck stop in Baytown, just east of Houston and found a parking spot to sit and wait for my delivery time (The pipe yard was in a rough part of town, more rough than the truck stop so I didn't want to wait there for the place to open at 8).  Soon as I set my brakes in the lot I got that knock on the door, rolled the window down and there was an average looking blonde there, glass eyed, obviously farked up on somethin.  She asked if I wanted company, I said no thanks and rolled my window back up.  Hopped in the bunk and went to sleep.

Couldn't have been out for 10 minutes before I got another knock on the door, hopped back in the driver seat, and there's the same woman, so farked up she doesn't remember knockin on my door 15 minutes ago.  I tell her no thanks again and go back to sleep.  She farkin comes back AGAIN, this time I hop up, roll the window down and cuss her like a dog.  She flips me the bird and walks away, and I never see her again.

I wake up at about 6 a.m. walk into the truck stop to grab some coffee, and as I am walking back out I look at the front of my truck and my jaw drops.  Both my steer tires are flat.  I get up to the drivers door wondering what the hell happened and look at the tire and the valve stems have been cut.  Same thing with the other 16 tires on the truck too.  Biatch cut the valve stem on every one of my tires.  I still think it was odd that I didn't wake up for that, it's not exactly quiet when you let the air out of those tires.

Waited till the boss would be in the office and called, had all new (recaps except for the front axle) tires put on, delivered, got routed back to the home terminal and was fired as soon as I walked in the door.

Moral of the story is....be nice to the hookers if your gonna be there for any length of time.

"Lot Lizard" sounds trashy, I prefer "Sleeper Leaper".

CrissX: had all new (recaps except for the front axle) tires put on,


If just the valves were cut and you had new tires put on, then why should you not have been fired?

Bosses call for the new tires, road assistance guy said it wasn't fixable.  Maybe some guy decided it was a good time to milk that company.  Who knows?  I certainly wasn't allowed to authorize maintenance on the vehicle without company approval.  And on top of all that, they SHOULD have fired me and probably before that happened, I hated that line of work with a passion I can't describe, just needed the money at the time.  My attitude while doing that job sucked and it showed.

I didn't mean to make it sound like they were some god awful company that fired me for no reason.  Guess I didn't exactly spell that out in the post.

TheBlackFlag: Myself, two cousins and an uncle own nine truck stops on major routes in Canada and the US,  "Lot Lizards" are like bigfoot:  You hear about them a lot, but I have yet to see one....


Really? What's your cut of their take?

tripleseven:She also told me about having to fire not one, but two drivers for having a working meth lab in their rig.

How many meth labs were not working?

I've picked up two hitch-hikers in the last 30 years and both were disasters: A couple of years ago, I was driving along and this "girl" in a tank top and short short runs to the side of the road and starts flagging cars down. I stop and pick "her" up to see what was going on. It was a male prostitute and it looked like he had just given someone a blow job. He was upset, high on something as he giggled for no reason and asked to be taken to the nearest truck stop to get out of this town. If you ever wanted to see the definition of skank that was him. I gave him a ride to the nearest truck stop which happened to be on my way and hosed down the interior of my cab.

The first time, I picked up a hitch-hiker just outside of the local penitentiary for some conversation on the 90 minute drive back to the city where I was flying out of the country for a week. Well it ended up, he had just escaped from the pen and didn't feel like talking much. I dropped him off and found out that the authorities caught him a couple of days later but couldn't figure out how he got to the city...

So it's exactly like the internet?
