Trucker Bombs

My friend B Stacy B swears to me that her mailman husband was trained to pee in a bottle in the back of his mail jeep should the need to relieve himself arise whilst on his route. The concept was mostly disturbing because I can only wonder how much urine spittle must transfer to the envelopes that make it to my door.

Then today I saw this. Um, YUK.

I've never once peed in a bottle or jar. I can tell you that if I ever get into a situation where it's really that desperate, I'm just letting go in my pants. Same difference to me.

Sick. I don't know what's going to scar me the most-the image of all those pee jugs or the thought that there may be risidual pee on my mail.

my fiance told me that his cousin's family would refuse to stop at rest areas to let the kids pee, so they all had to have their own jar on long road trips.

needless to say, he didn't like going on trips with his cousin.

ps) they still live in MPLS ;)

OK, I confess. Recently at a very public place where there was no restroom, I was desperate to go to the bathroom. I didn't have a change of clothes so I wouldn't "let go" in my clothes. I did have a huge supply of diapers though so I climbed in my van, put a diaper in the proper place, and "let go". I did dispose of my own trash and this actually worked pretty well.

My parents wouldn't stop at rest stops for us as kids. We (as girls) would use a plastic sherbet bucket in the back of our conversion van. My mom would carry it into the next rest stop, flush it down the toilet, and wash it out. It didn't seem weird back then, but huh. . .

Why not just use this?

A sherbet bucket?!? I have this bizarre condition where I can't handle urinating into or near anything related to food. For example, I can't spit out a piece of chewing gum while I'm peeing because my mind weirdly associates the two things together. Pee-flavored chewing gum, if you will. Though I guess in this case, it's pee-flavored sherbet. That lime color always did look a bit dodgy.

oh my god. stuff like this doesn't even gross me out, i was laughing but...i couldn't bring myself to finish it after the 'there they are, glistening in the sun' line. way too poetic for PISS.

I can't believe the article started with:

"Most drivers whiz along the nation's highways..."

And just when you thought you had heard everything…...

The Urban Dictionary of Slang defines "Trucker Bomb" as follows:
A plastic container (could be a milk jug or a water bottle) that a trucker pees in while he/she is driving his truck. Then he/she throws it out of the window so that he/she does not have to stop to relieve the call of nature.
eg. "Don't get hit with that trucker-bomb"

Here are some comments we have received regarding the recent Trucker Bomb "explosion",
1. "I sure hope those truckers are keeping one eye on the highway as they are topping-off those milk jugs"; and

2. "There are a lot of women truck driver's these days…….I wonder how they do it while driving those big rigs" and finally

3. "Never again am I going to drink any lemonade I find on the side of the highway."

The blogger response on this subject has been so overwhelming and positive, that we have created another Blog website to reach an even broader audience on this important topic. To visit the Blog and add your comments, click on
