    I fully agree with this. But it's also true that ANY time you drive your truck you're shortening it's lifespan.

    Something I find interesting is that a lot of vehicles' towing capacity is double in Europe what it is here (and I do mean the exact same vehicle, except maybe drivers position). What's up with that? Is it possible that manufacturer's are conservative with towing capacities in the states due to the amount of lawyers and litigations?

    Thanks.

    As a male nurse one seems to catch less bs.

    I agree though. I've seen far more bullying on a hospital floor than I ever saw in 40+ yrs working including the Marines, foundries, factories, quarries, and sundry other "man's man" jobs and workplaces.

    I'd think one advantage of being a travel nurse is not getting into "Are you with us or them" clique battles what started 30 years ago when Suzy said something about Helen and has been handed down through the ranks ever since.
