I saw a truck the other day...

....and on the back of it was the message "Over-the-road drivers wanted."

At first I thought that was silly. Aren't those the only kind?

But then.... If there are under-the-road drivers, of course we'd never
see them. Maybe they exist, after all!

I wonder if the under-the-roads are less crowded, or smoother?

Ok, you're kidding... about now knowing what they mean by "over the road"?

Yeah, I thought everyone knew that was a euphemism for "you'll be home a
maximum of two weekends a month." 😉

They allow them to come home now. Amazing. 😛

And with diesel prices being what they are these days, you won't be able to
afford the comforts of home away from home. -

Sounds like a plot to a Stephen King story 🙂

How about preferring to NOT have 'off road drivers'.

There are also "Back seat drivers", "drunk drivers", "Student Drivers",
"NASCAR drivers", "Printer drivers", and "Minnie Drivers".

Howver, you seldom see signs asking for them.
