Ever walked into a maintenance facility, glanced around at the technicians there and thought to yourself: “That sure is one group of unattractive people?” Come on. Admit it. We all have at one time or another. Should there ever be a trucking industry contest to determine the cities with the most “attractive” professional commercial vehicle technicians, it would be advisable for shops in certain cities not to compete. In particular: Memphis, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Anchorage, Orlando, Washington, DC, Portland, Houston, Kansas City and Santa Fe. That is the ranking, in order, of the top 10 cities with the least attractive people. Don’t get mad at me. I’m not the one calling technicians in these cities unattractive. I’m just the messenger. Target your anger at Travel & Leisure magazine. It recently published a list of “America’s Most and Least Attractive People.” Shops that would have an advantage in a cities with the most attractive professional commercial vehicle technicians competition are those located in: Charleston, San Diego, Savannah, Miami, Salt Lake City, Honolulu, San Juan, Austin, Denver and Nashville. This is the order of the top 10 cities with the most attractive people, according to the magazine. While I don’t know what criteria the magazine used to base its “America’s Most and Least Attractive People” list on, there are two certainties about attractiveness. One is that looks aren’t everything. The other is that the definition of ugly has different meanings to different people. I’m sure glad no organization has come up with a ranking of the nation’s most and least attractive truck trade magazine editors.
