I Love My Job As a Woman Truck Driver
I have been driving Truck for over 5 yrs now. In the beginning it was hard, but as time went by things got easier. I learned more on my own then I learned in Truck Driving School, and I will have to say it was the help of other Male drivers who helped, they were kind and courtesy.
I do feel though being a woman behind the wheel, I do get more benefits, I sometime feel the men don't think we know how what were doing Like how to check oil and the here come's one over to help, even though I tell them I can do it, they help anyway's. Some are there to help open your trailer doors some will help with Lumping a load for you. I guess it makes them feel better and just to have a conversation with a lady maybe it helps there day be a bit brighter?
The guys on the CB oh yes they can get on your nerves. I am sometimes afraid to ask questions because then you have to hear all the sex chatter about a woman trucker some can be down out nasty.
I Love being a Woman in Trucking, I enjoy my Job to the fullest, and I feel I do it good, and I always get the load there. Most of my friends are Truckers now, we call each other late at night, if we know each other will be up driving just to keep one another awake, driving down that lonely road. Listening to the Trucker Station on the satellite Radio, is just another way of getting where I'm going.
I am Proud to be a Woman and Drive a Truck. I encourage women to get out there and Drive a Truck it is Great Satisfaction and a Job You would love. I already Know Diesel is in my Blood I couldn't image doing anything else now.
