...and someone got back from his stint on the chain gang and had some explaining to do...
Doing a few deliveries last week (covering for the driver on vacation)
I'm driving behind a pickup loaded with construction materials (tailgate was down) when I see what I think is a small paper tag or something flopping around in the box. Then I notice it is in fact a small FLAME!
Two lane highway, so I get up on his bumper flash the lights and lay on the horn.
I can see the passenger looking around as the flame grows bigger and smoke begin to be visible.
I have no clue how the guy didn't see the smoke.
Anyway, this continues for about 3 miles until they slow for a roundabout and the flame, no longer knocked down by the wind, burst over the top of the box and black smoke begins pouring out!
They quickly pull over and I pull off in front of them and grab the extinguisher in the delivery van. I run back to see the guy with one of those tiny little 2# extinguisher, from about 6 feet away from the flames like he is watering gladiolas.
Another guy had pulled over behind him and was rushing forward with another extinguisher and between the two of us, expending our bottles, we mostly go the flames under control until another passerby showed up and finished it off.
Turns out, there was a battery cable running along the inside of the box for some reason, and in loading the concrete blacks and bags of ready-mix they had knocked it loose somehow.
Never a dull moment
Opinions are like doctors, everyone has one.
I always heard " Opinions are like buttholes, ( well something to that affect ) everyone has one " LOL
Well, if the doctor is a proctologist then you'd be covered both ways.
(And why does our spell-check not know the word "proctologist"?)
Maybe it hasn't seen the word proctologist enough to know what it is ?????LOL
Is it me or is this like a Funeral Home ?
I can't see posts from either my iPhone or iPad, only my computer.
So I visit rarely because it's a PITA.
Know what you mean, ever since the so called upgrades, been all messed up,
Used to check in several times a day, now have to force myself to try and check in every 2-3 days , sad

to finish off the quote...
Everyone has one...and they all stink.
