A Profession That Does Not Receive
The Respect It Deserves.
Introduction: In the following pages I’m
going to try to explain why the needs of the professional driver world
wide need to be examined more closely by the remaining population of the
world who does not drive professionally for a living…
A professional driver affects everyone’s lives, business travelers need to use taxies when they exit the airport in an
unfamiliar city after a long red eye flight, most of the time such a
traveler is simultaneously late for a business meeting which contributes to
making our world economy turn.
The drama of money exchanging hands, documents being
signed and currency being deposited into the payroll bank accounts of
dedicated hardworking individuals fighting the war on the potential effect
of overnight overwhelming poverty.
Without taxies the common everyday tourist flying
into an unknown country where everyone speaks a foreign language will be
forced to fend and scavenge for them selves when it comes to finding
transportation to their hotel or else their major destination they intended
to conquer that particular day.
The appearance and arrival of the worlds
professional taxi drivers, ready and willing to assist such adventure
seeking tourist on demand is what keeps our hotel and restaurant businesses
The taxi driver’s job is usually the same,
regardless of which country you are in, without taxies and the drivers of
the metal human transport vehicles...
Populations would tremendously suffer!
effected part of the population on planet earth would be the everyday
working person who depends on a taxi to transport themselves to and from
work each day. Most of the people who own cars use taxies as a supplement
for the day’s their cars decide not to start in the morning or else
environmental smog levels are to high which prohibits citizens from using
their personal vehicle on a particular day.
The most devastated part of the world’s
population will be the crippled people who lack necessities, which
The handicapped person living day
to day in a wheelchair who uses handicapped equipped taxies to exercise a God
given right which includes a trip to the grocery store or else a Saturday
night on the town, especially if that handicap person does not have any
immediate family to continue the transportation requirements of a
handicapped persons needs. Upon the click of the taxi meter, a taxi driver
immediately becomes the family member for that particular handicapped
The darker side of taxi driving is the homeless and
the less fortunate people of cities. This type of population who are other
wise considered outcast, beyond help immediately become reborn with
authority once they enter a taxi.
The prestige of giving directions, commands
and using a 10 dollar bill to sit in the seat of a captain as if
giving orders to 1 of his crew members is an intangible gift the taxi
drivers of the world give to the unfortunate people of this world.
Immediately the drug infected pimp or else abused
hooker becomes a paying customer and can give the taxi driver a command
pertaining to the direction of where to drive, or simply a non combatant
friend to talk too.
A slight feel of power is installed and received with a
welcome by the most unfortunate which inhabits the same world we all live
in. This for sale experience is offered by all taxi drivers world wide
which is paid for using hard green currency to the taxi driver which
contributes to the heeling process necessary for the poor citizens of the
world in order to regain their dignity. This type of therapy is a start for
a brighter future to a sometimes hopeless recovery.
This chore of healing the mentally sick is
usually compensated with a dollar tip.
The American 18 wheel truck driver is a profession
that is a mystery even to some local 18 wheel truck drivers who have been
driving within the same state day after day, year after year.
The mystery remains, because a local truck driver is
similar to a taxi driver who works in the same state each night. This type
of driver goes to sleep next to his teddy bear each night or else ones
significant other, this type of driver sees the same doorstep each day,
reads, listens, to the same local news radio station each day. This type
of driver really has no idea what truck driving is about. The only way for a
local driver to find the real meaning of truck driving is to spend at least
a year on the road traveling 48 states continuously without stopping for
any breaks in-between except, to catch up on his log book hours.
In my opinion the local truck driver has no overall
perception of what trucking is really about nor does a local truck driver
have the right to express facts and opinions and needs of the American truck
driver, simply for the lack of experience living at least 1 year on the
I sincerely hope I have made myself clear in the department
category regarding the difference between the definitions of the American
Now, allow me to explain the lifestyle of: “The
American Truck Driver”…
The real American truck driver lives constantly on
the millions and billions of tons of aggregate, including concrete mix that
has been used to build the highways of America. Technology and fuel prices
being as high as they are the American truck driver is forced to work for
corporate entities such as: “Swift trucking”, “Warner Trucking”, “Central
Refrigerated Service” and the list goes on… These type of trucking
companies now have satellite tracking and communication devices that
control the human driver, as if he were a equivalent to a new toy that was
popular in the 1980’s called: “Pac Man”.
The dispatchers of the American
truck driver sometimes gets caught up in numbers and figures and forgets about
the human driver and tends to fall into the pit of treating the driver like
a farm animal or some sort of computer component, simultaneously completely
forgetting about the person inside the truck who also has a life to live.
This person behind the wheel of an 18 wheel commercial truck also has
family, friends and a visual view of his doorstep which leads to the inside
of his residence.
The American economy which considers its self a
society is paying such a driver to be a outcast of human society and forced
to sleep on the side of a lonely cold mountain road or else the alley way of
the popular store called:" Wal-mart".
The American truck driver who travels 48 states and
is steered with directions like a mule who, really does not have time to
vote, solve family problems with teenagers at home or watch his baby take
their 1st physical step into the front yard. The profession is a complete human
sacrifice for all the other human creatures that devour the goods and
services that the American population demands.
The saddest part of the
story is once the American public consumer has devoured the food and high priced
neatly wrapped Christmas packages America puts demands upon the local truck
drivers to haul off their excess garbage to either be recycled or buried in
The bottom line is the life of the American truck driver
usually means trash is dumped on them at the end of their journey one way or
Facilities for truck drivers are becoming few and far
between, the results are putting the American truck driver in the back
seat. Inadvertently this type of forced funneling espionage is allowing the
car passenger drivers to control the truck stops of America...
stops of America now cater to more passenger car drivers, rather than
professional 18 wheel truck drivers.
The truck stops of America are turning
into nothing more than zoo exhibits, allowing passenger car drivers a
sneak peek of an exhausted over the road 18 wheel truck driver tying to get
a shower ticket.
The shower ticket line usually includes 20 other
passenger car drivers. The whole truck stop industry is in for the short
haul, quick buck which makes state to state truck driving much more
difficult, for the American truck driver.
Taxi drivers and truck drivers are considered
professional drivers and the needs of these drivers are put on the back
burner of human life.
The reality is all the needs of the drivers
should be addressed first. The only reason for this thought is simply
because without the drivers of America we can not continuously focus on the
other professions that do not get the respect they deserve, such as: school
In conclusion: the professional driver is the
backbone of America and human life. If something is not done quickly to
integrate the professional drivers into our everyday work, social, political
and a positive profitable on the road interrogational digital education
method and system. The remaining working population will cease to function
properly considering the worst scenario, it may not function at all.
professional drivers of the world need to be treated like humans, not farm
