We name our trucks in this state. There is a definite love for trucks in Texas. Here are a few of the things that Texas boys learn from their trucks.

  • Sports cars are fast; but you will not able to have as much fun. The truck will go to more places, will carry you farther, and does not mind playing in the mud.
  • Sports cars demand the premium gasoline or else. Trucks will be happy with regular gasoline; but, don’t mind the occasional premium.
  • Sports cars only like whiney, yelping, lapdogs who poop in purses. Trucks love dogs of all kinds.
  • Sports cars get traded in every two years. Trucks will stay with you until one of you dies.
  • Sports cars are seen at fancy restaurants; but, only a truck can tailgate.
  • Sports cars attract a lot of attention from other dudes. A truck gains the respect of your friends.
  • Sports cars require expensive parts and professional mechanics. If you personally take care of your truck, she will treat you right. If you personally take care of two or three trucks, you will not have any time for yourself.
  • Sports cars will get you somewhere. A truck can get you, and everything else in your apartment, anywhere.
  • Sports cars always need to smell nice. You can fart in a truck, and she will still love you.

Why not Dogs?

I do not think dogs are good training for how to treat girl friends and wives. The boy's expectations will be skewed. That dog of yours is going to be happy just to be with you. Even the best of women will need some time away from you. A dog will let you know in no uncertain terms when you are screwing up. A woman often does not always complain when you are hurting her, for some mysterious reason. A dog will forgive you when you play with another dog. You should not do that with other women when you are married. So gals, make sure your intended treats his dog right; but, don't let him treat you like a dog.

      RBJ33,

      I cannot recall anyone raised in Texas saying "shut up and git in the truck" to any female. Texas females don't respond very well. They rarely get in the truck , and a Texas girl will always speak her mind.

      I believe that version of foreplay is a risky in a state where most girls, and women, can handle a shotgun. Also, if the girl grew up on a ranch ....well lets just say those girls know how to make steers out of bulls.

      Hey Leroy - I'm a little late reading your truck hub, but I did finally get here. I once worked with a young woman who grew up in Texas and she once told me that a Texas boy's version of foreplay was "Shut up and get in the truck" Is that true?

      Alexander,

      Thanks for stopping by. I am glad you liked this hub. Trucks do present some great life lessons. I like what you said about putting gas into your truck. People should read that comment.

      I have a 2 door Tahoe, what does that say about me? You got a laugh out of me on this one, love it. Trucks are loyal and easy to work on, that doesn't mean you won't have to work hard sometimes to get her going, but with a truck you are ABLE to make it better without draining your pocket book. I don't mind puttin' more gas in her because she's worth it.

      Homesteadbound,

      Thanks for stopping by. I had originally intended to to be about learning about women through dogs; but, trucks worked much better. Had to include something about dogs though.

      Fiddleman,

      Welcome to my corner of Hubpages. I think I like trucks that you don't have to climb into better. If you don't mind, I shared your crackin cornbread recipe with my followers.

      Love my truck and I had one when I was courtin. My son't love their trucks and they both have their dolled up, jacked up and smelled up. For an old geezer like me, I need a ladder just to climb into the cab. I have a 4X4 Silverado extended cab and it suits me just fine.

      Morning Todd,

      Glad you stopped by this article. Believe it or not, this hub is the result of writers block. Trucks always get the job done.

      All very true.

      I've owned sports cars and trucks. Currently I drive bicycles. Hey, I don't go far, and don't even ride that often....but at least my legs, heart, and lungs get some work!

      The times I've bought something brand new....I always bought trucks. Whenever I've owned cars....I was just filling a need until I could buy another TRUCK!!!

      I'm not the type of guy who really has a lot of "masculinity issues"...I'm comfortable with me, and I can be happy with a car - but damn, I always feel like a stud when I drive a nice new truck!

      I'd imagine that the next vehicle I own....will be a van though - it's easier to make a van into an hvac service vehicle than it is to buy a whole ....work bed, you know, the aftermarket truck beds with tool boxes all over the sides?

      Not yet. I am working on it. I think there are a few peanut farms around here somewhere.

      YES! Funny you would say that, I just found a recipe on how to make them in the crock pot. I'm in the middle of moving right now but when I get settled that will be the first thing I try out! The kind in a can (while still good) just aren't the same as the kind you buy from a side of the road stand. Are boiled peanuts popular in Texas?

      Dodgethis,

      Thanks for saying hi. I grew up in Texas; but, my dad's family is from Bay Minete, Alabama just above Mobile. I just might be a southern boy at heart. Do you like boiled peanuts too?

      I'm a southern girl, nothing catches my attention like a jacked up truck with mud tires! There is just something about a truck that a tinny sports car doesn't have and I think you summed it all up in this hub! :)

      molometer,

      I think it means you are from California and are a movie star whose name begins with the letter L Personally, I think people would be better off with a Tesla. That company started production during the Bush Jr administration; and, has been doing good ever since. All electric too. More consistent that way.

      Au fait,

      Oh yeah. The truck metaphor can say a lot.

      Heads up boys, you only get what you put into the relationship. Remember that if you decide to grow up.

      For some reason men do not fully appreciate their trucks. Maybe because their trucks are too easy going, make few if any demands, and as you say, love you even when you're a fart -- I meant to say when you fart. ;)

      For some reason, men love sports cars best. They appreciate the slightest everything about them, and the more temperamental they are, the more attention and the better treatment they get. Men are always deferential to a sports car, except when a man is so uncivilized no car will behave right with them in the driver's seat. There needs to be a little bit of sports car in every truck, just to keep a guy on his toes.

      One thing I know for sure; if no one else thinks your truck is 'mighty good lookin' you won't think it's anything special either, so it seems like every man likes having a truck that he knows other men admire. Men tend to take their trucks for granted when their truck isn't all shiny and pretty and when it loves them no matter what,or how much mud he drives them through.
