Dear Lubbock truck drivers,

Where are you going? Where do you need to be that requires you to be going 80 miles per hour while tailgating or cutting off every other car on the road?

I swear, every time I leave my home there's at least one truck plowing through traffic, rolling coal, and being a complete idiot on the road. I know, you think you're the most important person out there and are safe in your lifted F150, but I promise you're not as important as you think you are.

Everyone is trying to get somewhere, and most of us are trying to get there in one piece without the fear of being run off the road by Chad in the brand new Ram 3500 his daddy just bought for him.

There's a slew of issues I have with these drivers, like tailgating other drivers when they could just merge to the left and pass them or leaving stuff in the bed that just flies out into the road, but one of the worst things is the lack of parking skills.

I understand it’s a big vehicle, but you shouldn’t be driving it if you don’t know how to park. You don’t deserve to take up more than one spot; you need to actually pull all the way into the spot you pick and stop hitting people’s cars with the hitch you left on even though you haven’t towed anything in months.

Hear me out: I’m not bothered by every truck driver. Some of y’all are great. But if you're offended or getting defensive over what I'm saying here, then you're probably exactly who I’m talking about.

Just because you drive the big fancy truck doesn’t mean you’re better than everyone else or that you own the road like you obviously think you do. It’s OK to be courteous, take your time, and follow the rules of the road. I promise it won't hurt you.

Sincerely,

Everyone else in Lubbock
