Source: @truckmeimei Meet Japan’s new Twitter phenomenon: a trucker girl who shares post-work beers in witty T-shirts 2022-09-01 Thu 2022-09-01 Thu All she meant to do was share photos of herself enjoying post-work beers, but Truck Meimei (@truckmeimei), a 21-year-old truck driver with a love of beer, has somehow taken over the Japanese corner of Twitter. Truck Meimei has grown an impressive following (amassing over 100,000 followers within a week) thanks to her daily posts: herself deliciously downing a refreshing beer after a day of trucking, usually wearing dad-joke-esque pun T-shirts. For instance, this shirt is a spoof on "Nitori (ニトリ)", a Japanese furniture store's logo. Instead it says "hitori (ヒトリ)", which means alone and shows a lonely-looking silhouette sitting in the characters. 21歳トラック運転手仕事終わりの一人焼肉ッッッ！！！！！ pic.twitter.com/Ayw2Zk1UoP— トラックめいめい🤰🏼 (@truckmeimei) August 16, 2022 今日頑張った自分にご褒美を与えるッッッ！！！！！ pic.twitter.com/3jqZmyPd6Q— トラックめいめい🤰🏼 (@truckmeimei) August 11, 2022 What seems to be the impetus for her sudden internet fame was a Tweet she posted saying "sorry, I just prefer beer over Starbucks!" Since then, her followers have grown massively. While the shirt puns are charming enough, it seems as if a great deal of her Twitter followers look forward to her posting as a way to vicariously make it through the work day and make it to that post-work treat of an ice cold one. As Truck Mei Mei says, "I work hard for beer!" すみません。やっぱり私はスタバよりビールです wwwwww pic.twitter.com/O799hqo8XN— トラックめいめい🤰🏼 (@truckmeimei) June 4, 2022 The trucker tells us that she never expected to get a reaction like this, but her Tweets with pun shirts she collects (and even makes, such as the one below that says "Blood: Beer") seem to have resonated with many online: "I'm getting a blood transfusion at Saizeriya (an Italian family restaurant in Japan)" 21歳、サイゼで血液補給中ッッッ！！！ pic.twitter.com/NxkuBQRkvI— トラックめいめい🤰🏼 (@truckmeimei) August 17, 2022 Or a "cucumber" shirt with a picture of an eggplant. 明日は休みだ！！今夜のビールが一番旨いぜッッ！！笑笑 pic.twitter.com/RrhdkN5a5V— トラックめいめい🤰🏼 (@truckmeimei) August 12, 2022 "I didn't have any other clothes to wear." 仕事終わりの至極の一杯ッッッ！！！ pic.twitter.com/vTIDGvPBTb— トラックめいめい🤰🏼 (@truckmeimei) August 15, 2022 It's about hard work as much as it is the beer reward for Truck Mei Mei, however, who left her home of Hokkaido at age 18 to pursue a large scale vehicle trucking license. 今日は、暑くなるらしい！😆✌️暑さとビールの旨さは比例するッ！！そこに労働後の疲労が加われば…🤤 pic.twitter.com/hnlSrT5GXN— トラックめいめい🤰🏼 (@truckmeimei) August 30, 2022 Twitterが凄いことになってる中、私は今日もビールを美味しく飲むためトラックに乗って働くんだ pic.twitter.com/CU9mukYgS5— トラックめいめい🤰🏼 (@truckmeimei) August 15, 2022 If you'd like to add her uplifting post-work beer updates to your week, be sure to follow Truck Mei Mei on Twitter and Instagram. おはようございます！！今日も美味しいビールを飲むために仕事 頑張ります！！！初めてのオリジナルTシャツを作ったら予想以上に需要が高かったのでAmazonで予約販売出来る様にしておきましたので、欲しい方は是非🤣笑https://t.co/1BHgA3I4qv pic.twitter.com/HDjANUXqCh— トラックめいめい🤰🏼 (@truckmeimei) August 18, 2022 By - grape Japan editorial staff.
