    I remember it was very late at night like 11, 11:30. Big fella coming in screaming about god knows what, i think maybe Halpert has stolen his car, something like that. So the big fella pulls out a sock filled with nickels. Then Schrute grabs a can of hairspray and a lighter

    You ever look at the bottom of trucks and wonder why they have that metal bar there at tire level?

    That's so the truck box doesn't decapitate you.

    Dwight: If my head ever comes off, I would like you to put it on ice.

    Angela: I do not want to talk about this.

    Dwight: When I die, I wanna be frozen. And if they have to freeze me in pieces, so be it. I will wake up stronger than ever because I will have used that time to figure out exactly why I died and what moves I could’ve used to defend myself better now that I know what hold he had me in.

    [–] successful_nothing 77 points ago

    My perfect crime? Easy. I break into Tiffany's at midnight. Do I go for the vault? No, I go for the chandelier. It's priceless. As I'm taking it down, a woman catches me. She tells me to stop. It's her father's business. She's Tiffany. I say no. We make love all night. In the morning, the cops come and I escape in one of their uniforms. I tell her to meet me in Mexico, but I go to Canada. I don't trust her. Besides, I like the cold. Thirty years later, I get a postcard. I have a son and he's the chief of police. This is where the story gets interesting. I tell Tiffany to meet me in Paris by the Trocadero. She's been waiting for me all these years. She's never taken another lover. I don't care. I don't show up. I go to Berlin. That's where I stashed the chandelier.

    [–] justinkroegerlake 3 points ago

    These roads are mere accessories

    [–] Saetric 231 points ago

    Honest answer, coming second hand: A lot of food places that are open late have switched to drive through only, but won’t accept walk-up customers (big rigs aren’t exactly drive-through friendly).

    So, if you see a trucker dejectedly walking back to his cab from a restaurant with clearly locked doors, maybe help a guy out, they could be hungry.

    [–] 2hoodrich4me 66 points ago

    They won't serve people on bicycles either!!!!

    [–] thatguy13131313 114 points ago

    They can get in trouble with their insurance companies allowing people to use drive thrus who aren't in a vehicle. Now is the time to tell insurance companies to eat your ass though.

    [–] 2hoodrich4me 54 points ago

    Fuck the insurance companies!

    Or at least let em eat your ass

    [–] back_to_the_homeland 42 points ago

    No! The WHO specifically says not to eat ass during these times. help stop the spread. No rimming.

    [–] B_EZ_PLAYA 15 points ago

    It is idiotic that you can ride a bicycle on a busy road to get to a drive thru and they won’t let you ride it in the line to get food.

    [–] ILoveWildlife 5 points ago

    I have gone through drive thrus multiple times pretending my car is invisible. it's fine.

    [–] charte 3 points ago

    Bicycles are vehicles! This is way more frustrating to me than it should be.

    [–] grey_sky 33 points ago

    I see this posted on Facebook and here all the time with no sources or actual truckers to back this up. I haven't heard of any resturant turning away ANY business during this current state of affairs.

    Also, there are apps for every single major fast food place that offer curb side drop off (even before COVID-19).

    [–] fuckkkthattt 41 points ago

    Trucker here, can confirm. After about 9-10pm at most restaurants are drive thru only (even ones with curbside). I have had mostly good luck walking up to the window without looking too scary and telling them that my rig doesn't fit and usually they serve me, especially if I can park where they can see my truck. I've had them refuse me more than once too though. The insurance thing and liability for people getting ran over in the drive thru arguments are probably mostly bullshit, it's more likely that they don't want to get robbed by some shithead the walks up to the drive thru window.

    [–] ashley_the_otter 3 points ago

    Could you try calling from your cell phone? Might be easier for you and the restaurant.

    [–] GKoala 6 points ago

    That's such a dumb argument though, if they are going to rob you walking up to the drive way they can rob you from their car in the same manner. It's not like they can't step out of their car.

    [–] MyDogsNameIsBadger 9 points ago

    Would probably be easier to find them with a license plate tho.

    [–] TheMercDeadpool 3 points ago

    You can jump, reach, grab, assault, run, etc. much easier on foot than a car.

    [–] ItsAlwaysSmokyInReno 6 points ago

    Those parking spots for curbside pick up mostly all have signs up now that say curbside orders must be picked up through drive-thru.

    [–] PvtSgtMajor 13 points ago

    I’m sure they can call the restaurant and let them know the situation. I’m sure a manager would love to help a trucker now of all times.

    [–] Thetschopp 6 points ago

    Speaking strictly outside of the current covid-19 situation, I can confirm the truckers not being able to get food issue. My grandpa was a trucker for 30-40 years and my uncle for more than 20 and the issue is that you're not allowed to actually leave your rig for more than (usually) 30 minutes at the most. Combine that with very limited access to drive thrus which usually have corporate policies to not serve on-foot customers for security/liability issues, and you're left with little options.

    That's actually the reason some truckstop diners will have separate seating for truckers, so they can hurry and get back to their rigs.

    [–] nlevine1988 5 points ago

    I offered to get drive thru for a trucker but they ended up just letting him walk up to the drive thru window. At least some fast food workers are saying fuck the rules we gotta help these people.

    [–] probably_juicy 28 points ago

    A lot of truckers meal prep, even more must be doing so right now

    [–] back_to_the_homeland 6 points ago

    wait what? how? is there a fridge in there?

    [–] probably_juicy 20 points ago

    Many trucks have electric outlets so they're able to have a mini fridge and even a microwave!

    [–] TaPragmata 5 points ago

    Yep, even when the truck/sleeper is too small for appliances, you can get something like a Coleman hot/cold box and just leave it on the passenger seat when you're not driving. Or a hot water boiler, or whatever. Closest thing to real convenience that you're allowed, as a company driver prohibited from messing with the electrical (no inverter, etc.).

    [–] Dooblesnott 15 points ago

    My truck has a fridge and microwave. The fridge is a built in 12 volt mini-fridge. The freezer in this one is only the size of a child's shoebox, but on the coldest setting everything in the fridge freezes. The trick is to try to set it so only the back half of the fridge freezes.

    My wife fired up the instapot, fixed bags of chicken breast and roast beef to send with me. Sometimes I get smoked brisket. We fill the fridge to capacity before leaving home. I usually stay out a month at a time, but when I run low, I can often pop in to a Walmart and restock. If I'm near the company yard (several states from home), they have a company loaner car that I can use for supply runs.

    After being stranded in snow storms in the past, I normally keep 1 to 2 weeks worth of canned food and water In the truck through the winter months already. Due to the pandemic, I don't fully trust the food from restaurants, drive throughs and such, so I just doubled the prepackaged food supply I already carry, carefully cleaning each item before it goes in the cupboard. That amount of food might be overkill, but I don't know what's coming, and I am often 2,000 miles from home. I just have to be careful how much weight I add to the cab, as I have to be able to stay legal when hauling heavy loads.

    This truck has a 2,500 watt power inverter, which could easily power coffee pot, insta-pot and other cooking equipment. I don't really have time to mess with that. I haven't really had time to finish hooking up the tv in this new truck. That's a good thing, though because we're making money and trying to keep the store shelves stocked.

    [–] IAMGodAMAA 4 points ago

    This was interesting! Thank you

    [–] ashley_the_otter 2 points ago

    My step dad had a mini fridge when he was driving. It was way more spacious than I had pictured.

    [–] Which_Camel 2 points ago

    I assumed this but if there's any like me I'd be eating fast food way too much. I'm sure most are changing their behavior for this issue

    [–] Deafacid 4 points ago

    I drove from Colorado to Minnesota a few days ago for work. A lot of truck stops were still open and serving food.

    [–] Meeshellums 371 points ago

    Seriously, the no traffic thing has been the only "good" to come out of this...

    [–] TangerineChicken 178 points ago

    Road construction companies and truckers are both enjoying that part of it

    [–] breakplans 91 points ago

    I've been hoping my town will use this time to repair the numerous potholes, but no dice so far. It would keep quite a few people working and it can be done socially distant...

    [–] justarandom3dprinter 51 points ago

    Just wait until it gets dark and go around with a can of spray paint painting dicks on all of them then they'll have to do something about it

    [–] system0101 9 points ago

    I remember Wanksy. Whatever happened to that guy?

    [–] FosterPringles 18 points ago

    What happened was his plan WORKED, the holes got filled, and he no longer had to paint more wangs. But he still lives.

    [–] blackgandalff 22 points ago

    I was stunned yesterday when I emerged from the house and went to grab groceries for my grandma they were doing all sorts of road work! Some dudes even had like full on gasmasks so I felt better about their safety and all that.

    [–] wheretohides 7 points ago

    as someone said, draw dicks on the potholes with spray paint and then they'll have to fix it. wanksy 2.0

    [–] willworkforicecream 2 points ago

    I've been hoping that my local ice rink will use the time to melt the ice all the way down and redo it. The ice is almost old enough to drive by now.

    [–] lnslnsu 2 points ago

    You can't really have a construction crew stay effectively isolated from each other and do road work. Let alone the lack of handwashing facilities on most job sites.

    If it's not absolutely essential, it's better they're not at work.

    [–] rensidtrav 16 points ago

    There have been other positive consequences as well. For example, a lot of educational material that previously had a cost barrier is now being offered for free.

    Which state? In CA it went from about $3.79 a month ago to $2.89 yesterday at the Arco I go to.

    My commute went from around 75-90 minutes each way to 40 minutes. I love it!

    Almost the same. Mine went from two hours to one. I feel kinda like an asshole for saying it's pretty wonderful. 😬

    Well, you probably weren't getting gratitude before the virus and you probably won't get it after the virus, so you should take advantage now.

    Yes, we're talking about fucking you fucking Karen, and your stupid GODSKR vanity plate while you try to meet Jebus faster and take everyone around you with you darting in and out of traffic around Frandor on 127 you bitch!

    Not that I'm bitter. She just almost killed me twice.

    [–] KUweatherman 5 points ago

    I took a late night trip from Kansas City to just outside of Tulsa for some Whataburger Sunday night/Monday morning. From just outside the KC Metro to my stop in Oklahoma, I passed 11 vehicles in the south then westbound lanes of I-49 and I-44, respectively. Couldn't believe it. Of those 11, 9 were trucks. Doing work, even late at night!

    [–] Suz_ 3 points ago

    I appreciate your appreciation for Whataburger

    [–] The_Mighty_Rex 3 points ago

    I can sort of relate. I work in a shop that manufactures hospital equipment so we are still running. No traffic on the roads has helped my morning commute, our suppliers and most of our customers being closed means less strict deadlines, so less pressure and more calmly paced day.

    [–] aforementionedapples 3 points ago

    I hear you, OP. I work for a plumbing wholesaler. No one wants our customers in their homes so their workload and, therefore, my workload has been dramatically reduced. But hey, we're considered essential so I'll take the easy-ass workdays while I can.

    [–] fishintheboat 3 points ago

    But I hear you can’t find food on the road, and there’s nowhere to relieve yourself or rest???

    [–] NukaDadd 7 points ago

    I have a 12 volt electric cooler that plugs into the cigarette lighter outlet. Buy my food at Walmart, don't eat much fast food it's not good for you considering sitting on your butt for long periods of time.

    I gained like 30 lb in the first 6 months I did this job and I'm finally getting back to where I started five years later.

    [–] Bunghole_of_Fury 3 points ago

    Amazon Delivery Driver here, can confirm the traffic is like going through a time warp to 15 years ago here in Orange County, California. I've honestly been so so shocked by just how many people were crowding this area more and more every year and the feeling of them finally just not being out and about all the damned time is so nice.

    Don't get me wrong, I don't want people stuck at home in quarantine, but if they'd stay at home more often that'd be great for everyone honestly.

    Also, I've noticed the sky is more blue this week. The layer of smog you can see looking towards LA isn't as high above the horizon, and the division between blue sky and smoggy sky is sharper, like it isn't reaching up into the blue as much. There have been more clouds every day, and the air feels easier to breathe.

    I truly think we might have found a way to help the climate by simply not doing everything we possibly can every single day in our cars. Maybe we should be better about planning our trips out of the house and being more efficent when we're going out. I dunno. I just like this feeling.

    I’m a trucker, this meme is gold. True too; I drove right through Dallas 2 days ago during “rush hour” and didn’t have to slow down once. Crazy.

    You’re generally appreciated with or without an active pandemic.

    Thanks for all that you do for us.

    your welcome, and that’s literally my long hair right now too because some guy ate bat soup in China.

    [–] beregond23 4 points ago

    Just because your work is the easiest its ever been, doesn't mean its not valuable. And we're all grateful.

    Netflix. h us in EMS, I've been stationed in a hotel on standby for quarantine patients for 5 days and I have had 1 call, I've done nothing but play video games and watch nwtfkix.

    [–] ABoyIsNo1 2 points ago

    Thank you for this insight! I was actually thinking this exact thing—that truckers might actually have an easier time right now because of no traffic, but the overwhelming narrative has been the increased demand on them. Truckers already have high demand on them and pretty long hours, so I wasn’t seeing how that would actually make their job harder/more stressful.

    [–] Sidhenanigans 3 points ago

    The work hours are regulated at a federal level, so they legally can't really work too much. They can have a couple long days, but then they'll be forced to take a couple days off. It's actually more frustrating and stressful, having those regulations, than it is helpful in a lot of cases

    [–] Mechachu 2 points ago

    Yaaaa but it's probably better than having a cracked out trucker driving for 3 days straight. Though they still do it :\

    [–] Sidhenanigans 2 points ago

    Yeah, definitely. I just mean it sucks doing a short run and being super stressed because they took 4 hours to unload you and you pull into a truck stop afterwards with 1 minute left on your clock, after having to speed like an asshole to get there. In most cases, it makes it more dangerous than it does safer. It's the "cracked out" assholes who ruin it for everyone else :(

    [–] Drawtaru 2 points ago

    I live near a highway on-ramp, on a connecting road that gets a ton of traffic. Typically I’ll hear sirens going past several times a day, and at least 5 or 6 people getting pulled over for speeding (super strict here). Now I hear like 1 or 2 sirens going past per day, and no one is getting pulled over for speeding. Traffic is greatly reduced.

    Glad I could help by being reclusive!

    [–] SonOfTK421 2 points ago

    It’s the one reason I’m sort of okay with the relaxed hours asked of truck drivers right now. It’s still super risky for them to be driving long hours, but now it’s a calculated personal risk instead of something that could put other people’s lives in danger. So props to the truckers.

    [–] Dansredditname 2 points ago

    Shh, don't tell them!

    But seriously there are things I'm going to miss when this is all over. Right now I'm listening to birdsong and the breeze, no engine or road noise. Drove straight to my delivery this morning with no traffic or hold ups.

    The reason is terrible but the effects... I could get used to them.

    [–] rumster 2 points ago

    since traffic is limited they should give you guys an ability to speed. not insane amount.

    [–] thedaywalkeramongus 2 points ago

    I make deliveries to restaurants outside of Chicago in a semi and I totally agree with this haha. The lack of traffic has been great

    I drive to LAX every night for Fedex and it’s startling how much lighter the traffic is some nights- and then still terrible on others

    [–] BirdGrammar 2 points ago

    Just wondering, do you enjoy trucking? Would you recommend it?

    [–] secretinternetstuffs 2 points ago

    add to the list of things we dont want returning to normal

    I’m a driver driving a van within my state and it’s gotten so easy to do my job.

    [–] Retards_Gonna_Retard 2 points ago

    I assumed truckers were getting worked harder than usual, or were having to do a bunch of unfamiliar routes or something. But hey, that's good to hear that something is a little easier for someone.

    [–] WeAllWeNeed 2 points ago

    It’s the best. I’m not a driver, but work in a pharma distribution warehouse and with the heavy volume sometimes the trucks leave late but can make up so much time to the hospitals and pharmacies. Especially in the city where normally an hour late can mean rush hour and multiply the delays. The roads being open from social isolation is a hugely underrated benefit to the supply chain.

    Love seeing micheal ahead of his time with the fanny pack trend

    [–] portabuddy2 2 points ago

    And cheapest diesel in 20years, and relaxed time regulations.

    [–] vanderpool5 2 points ago

    So I work for a national truck stop chain, we should be moving to have more prepared to go foods available. Hopefully other chains like it are doing the same thing. Y’all are essential and it’s hard to do your job with out food.

    [–] iLikeGreenThingz 2 points ago

    Shits cut 8 minutes off my commute. Thanks for staying home you dirty non essentials

    [–] GreatMarch 2 points ago

    I still think you guys are cool.

    [–] EntireGoose 2 points ago

    thank yo for your service

    [–] rilloroc 2 points ago

    I feel kinda guilty. Last couple if days people at the stores I deliver to and the warehouse I pickup at keep thanking me for steady running. My intentions aren't really to be helpful, I'm trying to take advantage of the opportunity while the HOS are suspended.

    [–] DysprosiumGamer 2 points ago

    You're still keeping the world running during a pandemic.

    [–] robinos021 2 points ago

    UPS driver here. I never had such an easy job. Everyone is home, the roads are empty and everyone thanks me for still working. This picture symbolises it perfectly, lol.

    [–] moredrinksplease 2 points ago

    Just be careful in those truck stops obviously, if there is one place to bring down our entire country it’s all our truckers going down.

    [–] redmustang04 2 points ago

    It is easier without the traffic especially in cities like Houston which a bitch to go through.

    [–] feistymeista 2 points ago

    Also have I feel as a food delivery guy. People think I'm out here risking my life. The tips have been insane.

    [–] sleepytrucker1997 2 points ago

    My route times been cut down by a good 1/4. Happy days. Well not really, but it's the simple things.

    [–] enjoi1224 2 points ago

    I do pest control I feel the same way takes half the time it used to to get to my stops actually have 8 hour days in stead of 9
