      He’s a truck driver. Their IQ is less than their weiner size. Or more than likely it was a setup or inside job.

      • driverswife

        Way to generalize. Do you have any idea what it takes to drive a truck? Yeah it was probably set up, but don’t be an ass.

    Soo truck drivers have low iq? Cause last time i checked we have to have a lot more knowledge avout rigs trailers weights and everything else associated with driving a truck while all you have to know how to do is make change so i can pay for my big mac :)

      They don’t even have to know how to make change anymore – the cash register figures it out for them. Have you ever tried giving a store clerk the odd few cents so the change back is an even dollar bill, or a $5 or a $10? They get so confused, they look at you as if you’ve got 6 too tight and 6 too loose and have no idea what to do with the odd change. It is shameful. p.s. Big Macs aren’t the healthiest meal for a truck driver – or anyone else for that matter. :)
