Don’t Ask Me

You know why really grinds my gears? Being asked overly personal questions by strangers, just because my seems like your business doesn’t mean it is.

When someone finds out how much Josh and I travel with this job a usually reaction is a bit of shock followed by the same questions, every time.

I know that my lifestyle is a bit strange and that I’m probably the only persons you know that travels as much as we do, unless you work for MRA.  So just to dispel some rumors and vent a little.

Do I like my job? – I wouldn’t do it if I didn’t like it.  I have many career options and this is the one I chose.

Do I like traveling this much?- Again, wouldn’t do it if I didn’t like it.

What route are you taking? – Does it matter what route we are taking, do you know some secrete super fast truck route we can use? No, then don’t ask me this.

If/when I am having kids? – This in NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS!!!  It is extremely rude to ask about my family planning, you have no idea if there are circumstances that have influenced our decision to be a small family.

Do you sleep in the truck? – Seriously, do I look like I slept in a semi last night and didn’t shower.  And where I sleep in none of your business.

Now these are the ones the just chap me.  There are ones that I don’t mind answering, like the stuff I talk about in the yearly recap posts.

  1. Whoa! Someone woke up on the wrong side of the HOTEL ROOM bed this morning.
    Must have been that route you took yesterday that got you all pissy.
    That and the lack of kids you bore.
    Probably in a foul mood from all the traveling you do.
    I suspect tomorrow we will find you in a better mood.
