If you like engaging in conversation with sweaty, uneducated fat men that drive large vehicles for a living, then I'd have to say, "that's a big 10-4!!"
Sorry, I couldn't reisist, and no one else responded, I didn't want you to feel ignored.

Woah,* Been a few days and I must say Jll, I've got be be uneducated if I can't understand your replies...
Who stereotyped?* I believe you coined the phrase, "sweaty, uneducated fat men."
I realize it was a joke, you said so in the last line of your post.* Even jokes, though innocuous as they may seem, can cause hurt and pain to other people, hence my 'defensive' reply.
Quite frankly, JB Hunt is not the most respected OTR fleet in the country, nor are they the smartest.* They milked us dry supplying them trucks at a loss, then switched to a competitor when we tried to actually make a small profit.* Now those competitor trucks are falling apart and we won't give them the time of day. Some customers you just don't need.
So it seems the president likes to surround himself with people just like him...
As for your good friend, I think the industry trend is to hire people without ambition, so they can retain drivers.* You can be educated and still have no ambition.* Ignorance is sometimes mistaken for a lack of ambition, and a lack of ambition is sometimes mistaken for a lack of education.
These people deserve more than our snide comments.* Without those fat men, we would have nothing. Not even our beloved BMW's, or parts for them.
Just show a little more respect, especially since you know people in the business.
As for your 'wing flapping papers,'* congrats.* While I was in the Civil Air Patrol, I took 1 orientation flight in a Cessna 172. 2000' ceiling in a mild rain storm.* NO THANK YOU!!* You can flap your wings all you want, I'm gonna keep my feet firmly planted.* Taking a flight in a C130, was a blast though. 250' over Lake Erie.* Now that was fun.
Why do you hate me?

Give me a 600hp Cummins 16L 6cyl with 2200 lb-ft of torque and a spicer 18 speed anyday!!! Just spent the other day seeing what it is like to manhandle a 20,000lb (very small) truck without power steering. A few orange cones lost their life.
How odd is it. You seem to be more on the side of the donkey (at least not so much on the side of the elephant), started in a technical field, then changed to music.
I started in music, then did some soul searching and found I like money better than happiness, and went into engineering. Then I became an elephant.
Oh yeah, pets and procreation happened in there too somewhere.
I think we are near the same age too.
