When you work in the trade, there’s a lot of travelling and consequently, a lot of time spent in the van. Some of the time, this can be a good thing. A chance to get out of the sun, have a rest while driving to your next site. But, sometimes, this isn’t the case. Instead, there are some problems that only van drivers face…
First up is the middle seat. No one wants it. And a lot of arguments can take place fighting to not have it. At least as the driver, you never have to be squished in that middle seat. Although it can add an extra 20 minutes onto your journey time.
Next, sleeping in the van. As a driver, one of the most annoying things is when people fall asleep in the van. And the snoring! Don’t even get me started on the snoring! Changing the radio stations is another one. Flicking through from station to station. Seriously, pick a song and leave it on! Even silence is better than this.
And, of course, there are the red lights. Why is it that the one time you need to get somewhere quickly, the lights are always on red? It’s as if they change just for you! And then when they do change, you move about two feet because there’s traffic everywhere!
Finally, speed bumps. Taking those little b*stards a little too sharply can cause havoc in the back of the van. There’s stuff everywhere!
So there you have it, the problems that only van drivers will know. Check them out for yourself:
