I work for a home improvement company (Lowes) and a couple years ago when I worked in Building Materials I was asked to help build a load to go out on delivery. One of the items included an aluminum extension ladder. I was carrying it through the store (because I couldnt find a cart) using the 1firefighter carrying method when I was approached by a manager. This manager proceeded to inform me that I was improperly carrying the ladder (it wasnt the "Lowes approved" method). I told her that I am a firefighter and that was how I was taught to carry a ladder in training. She left me alone on that one lol.

You think The Truck IS your personal truck
Your favorite position is on top...of the ladder, of the roof, of the fire floor, of your... well you get the idea
Those my friend, are definite truckie traits. Good stuff.
So right, brother.
If you break a window from the inside out instead of just unlocking it and lifting it up, you know you're a truckie. (Saw it on the news last night. Just about fell over laughing.)
You might be a truckie if seeing an engine blocking the front of the structure enrages you to the point of near BLEVE.
If you go to carve the Turkey and the first knife you grab is a Stihl, You might be a truckie
