I've actually only had positive experiences. I've had truck drivers chat me up to ask how the truck pulls, make small talk, etc. When my wife pulls in driving, she usually turns a few heads.
I had one pump where I was stuck behind a truck who pulled up and then just disappeared. After I was done, I walked back to the trucker behind me and explained that I was stuck and wasn't the problem. She laughed and said some mean unprintable things about the company drivers of the truck in front of me.
As was said- get your fuel, pull up (if there is space), and be quick about what you're doing. My fill up and running inside to pee take less time than most trucks take to just fuel.
