Are You Driving a Pick-Up Truck For the Right Reason?

Toyota Tundra
All right. I know. I really do. By broaching this subject, I’m really going to piss some people off. I might even lose some readers and followers, but someone has to have the cohones to tell you. Someone has to say it. Bear this in mind, my brothers; I am genuinely just trying to help.

What is today's topic? Pick-up trucks.

So, here’s the deal, gentlemen. Unless you are a plumber, drywaller, pipe-fitter, steamfitter, electrician, mason, boilermaker, carpenter, welder, farmer, rancher, general contractor, automotive repair or service specialist, landscaper, laborer, logger, installer, demolition expert, surveyor, oil rigger, or employed in any other related working man’s profession or if you are a woman, then you should NOT be driving a pick-up truck. Period. On the other hand, if you aren’t a plumber, drywaller, pipe-fitter, steamfitter, electrician, mason, boilermaker, carpenter, welder, farmer, rancher, general contractor, automotive repair or service specialist, landscaper, laborer, logger, installer, demolition expert, surveyor, oil rigger, or employed in any other related working man’s profession or if you are a woman and you ARE driving a pick-up truck, well, how can I say this? Um . . . you’re compensating.

That’s right. If you’re a working man who drives a pick-up truck, you’re saying, “I AM a working man.” As such, you are entitled to all the rights and privileges conferred therein. On the other hand, if you’re a gym teacher or barista or customer service representative or insurance agent or retail manager and you drive a pick-up truck, you aren’t just telling people, “I’m compensating. You’re screaming, “I’M COM-PEN-SAT-ING!” You’re making a transparent and misguided attempt to stand on the shoulders of the men whose work-hard/play-hard image has actually been forged over generations by walkers the talk.

If you're not a working man and you are driving a pick-up truck, you are communicating, however, “Look at me! I can borrow $40,000 at too high an interest rate. Oh, by the way, I live with my parents, and I’m compensating! Whoohoo!”


Don't misunderstand, if you work for your money, regardless of the profession, then you are absolutely entitled to respect. However, by pretending to be something that you're not, you are communicating with unspoken clarity a fact that you probably want to keep to yourself. As such, posers, please stop posing.



Lazy Comic Randy McDaniels:
Not terribly funny, but right on target.

Of course, if any woman drives a pick-up truck regardless of age or profession, she’s sexy as H – E – double hockey sticks.

Every girl is pretty when driving a pick-up truck.

See?
