    My loads usually take from an hour up to two hours to unload.
    Am the only one who tries to position my truck for maximum shade while I'm out there?
    I drag my lawn chair up next to the tank, facing my gauges and hose, etc. I'm keeping a close watch and get up every few minutes and actually physically check everything.
    Am I really so lazy? Or do I just hate baking in the sun?

    That sounds perfectly logical to me. I would get a reclining lawn chair with the cup holder in the arm rest and make the best of the situation.

    if I have any down time I park at the side o the building in the shade and because of the building position you get a nice cool breeze blowing through. Sitting behind glass gets pretty hot.

    When I was doing pneumatic stuff I had one of those 10x10 pop up canopy things. Beat the hell out of standing next to concrete silos with the heat of the truck pumping off a load (stop it now @Blood ) and baking in the sun.
