A trucker was showing off his new truck to a friend of mine the other day. It's a brand new vehicle from a well-known, well-respected company. It's made for long hauls and comes with a sleeper compartment. The guy really liked his new rig (according to my friend), but...
The trucker said that when he got it, there was only a half-length curtain inside. It gave him privacy when he was in bed, I understand, but left him exposed from the waist down when he went to change clothes.
"I ask you," the trucker is reported to have said, "when it comes to naked, which half of you matters?"
He is far too large a man to wriggle into and out of clothes while laying on the bed. He went out and got full-length curtains.
I am half tempted to write the company and ask them where they expect truckers to change clothes in the cab of this model. All in all, it seems a curious way to set things up.
