Why they don’t want to be truck­ies?

Big Rigs - - READER CORNER -

THE real rea­son young peo­ple don’t want to be in the in­dus­try is be­cause the old blokes don’t like shar­ing the tricks of the trade.

I went from Syd­ney to Bris­bane the other day left ap­prox­i­mately 15 min­utes be­fore a guy that had been do­ing the run for three years.

He also had to go to the Gold Coast first.

He pulled in be­hind me five min­utes later.

When I asked him if he had been to the Gold Coast first he just said “What do you think?”, then I asked him how long he stopped for he just said “For how ever long I was sup­posed to”.

Seems to me the older gen­er­a­tion of truck­ers don’t want the young guns tak­ing their jobs.
