What kind of Poser are you.

I was just wondering what you do when someone is taking a picture of your truck while you are driving? It makes me a little uncomfortable and I'm not sure if I should wave, just smile, or stare ahead and act like I don't see you sticking your phone out snapping a photo. I tend to do the latter.

Be friendly! They are paying you a compliment! Smile back, act like you are enjoying the truck!

In the past week I had someone stop me in the middle of the street to chat about my truck, and a police officer pull me over to chat (said I changed lanes...which I did - after signaling!): I am convinced the officer just wanted to ask questions about the truck as there was no ticket involved and we spent 20 minutes talking about my rig.

You've just got to roll with whatever. If you don't want to deal with the attention, you'd have to drive a Honda Civic.

You are rather conspicuous in that thing...

used to it. happens so often. my favorite is the person in the passenger or back seat clearly with video on pressed up against the glass as I'm passing or as they are passing me. they don't even see me, they only see the truck. I'm invisible to them.

I had a guy riding behind me a couple days ago with his phone on the steering wheel. Almost ran into me.

We got used to people coming up and taking pics of us when we used to drive the zebras around.. And now with the camel trophy I can't go anywhere without people taking pics..I usually give them the hang loose and a smile..

I think it is always best to carry a mask between the center council and the seat that you can throw on one handed. Such as this. Now that is a photo op...
