Stupid ideas people have about truckers...

by Teddi

It has been years ago, but I don't think people have changed enough. I was having extreme abdominal pain, of course my husband was gone. A friend and her boyfriend took me to the hospital. The doctor examined me, said he was going to order a couple of tests and xrays. He thought it was an ovarian cyst. He looked at the nurse and gave her the orders.

He then asked where my husband was, I may need surgery. I explained that my husband was on the road. He turned to the nurse and said, "check for sexually transmitted diseases, too."

We've been together almost 25 years! It hasn't been easy!

A good man is a good man, no matter what his job is.

One more year! We are retiring to 10 acres in the middle of nowhere!

Stupid Ideas....
by: Anonymous

WOW-I would have questioned the doctor right then.I have a big mouth when it comes to doctors (I had to) and question alot of things they do. I know that now adays they do automatically check for STD's & Aids when doing blood work but I still would have questioned why. I am new to the life but I did not go into this with my DH with preconcived notions as to how truckers were. Stupid Hollywood, I say. Its up to us to change the minds of people. Even if alittle at a time.
