I am a retired truck driver. I'm over 65, so I'm old enough to know better but still too young to care. My mind is stuck at 25, but my body disagrees.
In my time I have also been a welder, a soldier, a salesman, a carpenter and a cop. I have a two-year junior college degree and a PhD in Life.

That's who I am.

I have always been able to get a job with benefits and good pay.
