... but one of his discussion points was about the desperate shortage of truck drivers in the US with average age of existing drivers over 55 years of age. I'm reasonably sure driving trucks does not require a masters degree... and they do pay very well but for some reason nobody seems to want to do the job.

Back in the day when I was on long (several days) road trips on the first day the idea of becoming a truck driver would occur to me.

No worries; driving someone else's truck, buying diesel with someone else's credit card, seeing the country etc. etc.

By about the third day reality would hit me: Driving is boring!
Gott'a keep your eyes on the road, can't do anything else oh and keep your eyes on the road.
