View Full Version : Being fat a requirement for tow truck drivers??

From watching shows like Lizard lick towing, south beach tow, and seeing several tow truck drivers assisting me over the years when i needed a tow to an auto shop, it makes me wonder if there is an 'unspoken rule' that to BE a tow truck driver you have to be real fat?

I think of it more as an occupational hazard for the tow truck driver. It goes with the job. A person sitting down all day is bound to gain weight.

Kinda like EMTs... seems to be one job that you'd think folks would be in great shape, but you see a lot who aren't even close.
