What it’s Really Like to be a Truck Driver as told in 9 GIFs

TDAW2015It’s truck driver appreciation week September 14 – 18. Sometimes the best way to thank someone is to understand what he or she is going through. To help more people understand what it’s like to be a truck driver, we’ve compiled nine funny, quirky, and outrageous GIFs we think show exactly what life on the road is like.

Driving a truck—whether long or short haul—isn’t for the fainthearted.

Other days there are plenty of reasons you’re proud to be a driver. Like when you find freight for your otherwise empty 500 mile backhaul—and it’s only two miles away.

 

Excited

 

Or when you deliver on time despite being held over in detention time at your previous stop.

Happy

 

When you really think about it, driving’s a pretty sweet gig.

In fact, you should be considered a real hero—after all, who else will keep the world moving every day?
