Max observes the truckers sitting next to the cop and notes that she likely would not survive a single day living as a trucker. However, she believed that truckers lived a “romantic life” as they were always on the road.
When she attempts to speak to the trucker in the red t-shirt, he dismisses her, saying he doesn’t feel like talking to her at the moment. His attention was preoccupied with “delivering a load of breakfast” to his stomach.
Speaking with the trucker in the barn jacket and the cap however, the man tries to dismiss her by telling Max that she was “in his eyesight”. Max observes that everything is within his eyesight, which irritates the trucker. He doesn’t take kindly to her tone and mentions that she sounds like Joyce Price, bossy and smartass. Max takes the comment as a compliment.
Optionally, Max can tell the trucker that he is being rude or sing the praises of Joyce, explaining that she wanted to be exactly like Joyce when she grew up. Angry, the trucker tells Max that she’s well on her way to becoming Joyce. He’s visited the diner for three years and Joyce, in his opinion, has done nothing except give him grief. When Max states that behavior was in Joyce’s nature, the trucker sneeringly hopes that Max ends up just like Joyce down to her job occupation.
