Door-to-door porn sales? WTH

Posted by   + Show Post

My DH just had a "Lot Lizard" bang on the window of his truck trying to sell him porn.  Business must be slow.


*Lot Lizards are prostitutes that troll truck stops.  Think of the "Hooker Avenue" of your town and imagine the girls that even it would reject.  Here in the valley, it's Van Buren.  Most are complete crackheads with no teeth.  I never worry.

Yep, the good ole "Want some company" *eyeroll*.  You'd think they would find some new lines?  There is one truck stop in Ontario, CA (a T.A....how fitting) that he does everything he can to avoid.  If he is ordered to park there, he tosses an old bra of mine that he keeps in his truck up on the windshield in clear view.  Does the trick most of the time.  He was actually pretty eager to wear a wedding ring to point out.  That scares off a few more than you would think, but plenty just say, "I won't tell her."

My DH is a Scandinavian doll of a man.  If our marriage got that bad and he needed another piece of ass that bad, he would need not stoop to prostitution to get one.  My sister has tried to put a lot of ideas in my head about the trucker stereo types and it goes in one ear and out the other.  Bitch please, that man comes home starving!  I'm very lucky that he only runs for 5-6 days at a time now.

I'm a little envious that you got to go on the road with your DH.  I know it's not fun, but I still wanted to do it for a while.  But, we started having kids instead.  I think that I may get my CDL and join him after all the rug urchins leave the nest.  I spent most of my working life nannying and doing tech support.  It would be real change for me.

My husband said they used to come knock on the door all the time before we got married. I lived on the truck with him for a while, so if they saw me, they wouldn't bother most of the time. A few times, though, they'd knock on the door and while they were "pitching" ("hey you want some company?" blech.) I'd sweetly poke my head around the corner and say "Who is it, honey?". They'd skedadle pretty quick. Now, he's not at truck stops too often, thank goodness (usually at well sites instead- restricted access), so he's glad he doesn't have to deal with them.

I wouldn't describe my family and friends as "struggling".  But, I still couldn't ask them with a straight face to pay that much for cookie dough.

My daughter too. Kindergarten , Otis spunkmeyer for $16 a box.


Quoting DuchessScrat:

My oldest just started preschool and we were suppose to sell cookie dough.  I wouldn've tried, but $16 a box?

i dunno, maybe by introducing porn it increases their profit potential while minimizing the amount of work that their mouths must perform.


I don't know where the sunbeams end and the starlights begin; it's all a mystery.

Lol.  Maybe their healthplan stopped covering treatment for TMJ.

There were definitely perks. One time, we stayed just outside Vegas! Neither of us really wanted to go in, but we went driving, and we drove right by Area 51 and we went to a tiny ghost town. It was so cool! Of course I whined the whole time, which I now regret, but he kept getting lost! In the desert! In a rental! lol

Here's a mailbox for the aliens by the road into Area 51. =)

My parents thought about truck driving when they're retired. I don't think they'll do it. They're getting boring in their old age. lol

I am sick and tired TO DEATH of people trying to convince me that just because my hubby is a truck driver, he's filthy, classless, and unfaithful. It's insulting and hurtful. None of our friends or family do it, thank God, but even when people on the Internet do it, it irritates the crap out of me! My sister knows how that feels, her husband is deployed in the Navy. I get sick of people, especialkly on here, talking about how military and truck drivers sleep around when they're away.   >:O

My ex scared away a lot lizard once. Apparently he's scary looking when you wake him up before his alarm goes off when he's on the road. I wouldn't go near another trucker though. The road can really fuck with a driver

Are speaking more for the mind or body?
