Some people call them “Trucks” and other people call them “Pickups.” I’ve always called them pickups, and the eighteen wheelers are trucks. I’ve noticed that a work pickup is never washed or vacuumed out. Not even a whisking out. The only time some of the pickups are clean is when they are bought off the lot or showroom. City slickers really over do the washing and cleaning of their “TRUCKS!” They use so much Armor All ,you really need to click your seatbelt, just to keep from sliding off the seats. So virtually both are guilty of abuse to a pickup. I think that if the work pickups get washed, the owner thinks that they will melt! Heaven help us when it comes to the inside of these pickups!!!! Not even Fabreze can help this! The floor mats are so heavy with sand-dirt-plastic bottles-peanut hulls-candy wrappers- and other objects that are indiscernible! You don’t know if an elephant or a monkey was in the cab. Too, the beds of these pickups are full of archives. Yep, as they never get cleaned up or thrown in the trash. Valuable rusty chains, empty oil cans and some indiscernible items that really STINK!This is not myth. nor is it an exaggeration! Folks, I’ve just described Z’s pickups! I dare not try and clean them up! Did this when we were first married and got fussed at. Thus, if Mr. Z man wants a trashed out pickup to go to church in, FINE! I shalt not be riding along side of him. I’ve gotten all cleaned up and I can drive my car, Thank you!!!!P.S. When I wrote of the Hill Country Folk last week, I forgot to mention that only one County are Hill Billy’s!
