The wise white van man
Tell us something we don’t know!
I know people like to blame the ills of the road and driving on the white van man… but research shows a different side.
“Gone are the days of the traditional white van man stereotype. What our research shows is that van drivers are entrepreneurial and responsible.”
Research also showed that after a hard day’s work, the van driver was more likely to catch a news bulletin or documentary than anything else on television and – of all drivers questioned – the least likely to watch reality TV.
With half of all van drivers opting to fix household appliances when they break rather than ask for help, they were also the handiest to have at home. The Telegraph
If you read the full article in the Telegraph you will see that a white van man is more likely to be a company owner, 3 times more likely that a sports car owner!
Personally I think white van men are wiser indeed. After all when you work for someone else your earnings are limited to what they want to pay you. When you work for yourself your earnings are the maximum you can possibly earn – you are the only person limiting your potential.
