Being a truck driver is a crucial job in America. It’s how we receive all sorts of items—every time you buy food from the grocery store or buy a new sweater at a clothing store, you can be sure a truck drove it to that location first. Even though truck drivers are so critical, they don’t always get the best treatment in the workplace, as this person’s truck driver friend can attest to.
