We were at the drive up of the biggest fast food company. The order menu and speaker is located at the rear of the building and is not visible by the workers.

We pulled up and waited for the usual welcome. None. We waited for about 3 minutes as we are patient people. No response.

We beeped the horn and the young girl that came on the speaker told us that our one ton truck was TOO large for the sensors to tell her we were there!"

As we have only been to that exact store, oh, maybe 100 times without a problem, I guess the truck must have gained weight and now was "too big."

The experience did supply a a great private joke for my wife and I.

Whenever we encounter a ridiculous situation, we seriously look at each other and say: "You know the truck is too big for the sensors."

The young girl must have been a medical student, seems when ever I have a problem my doctor always suggest I'm to large and although he may not know what's wrong, it's a sure bet loosing some weight would help! lol

For years I can remember my dad always saying he would only go to a doctor that was fat and smoked. Dad wound up in hospital, since he didNt like what the young doctor was telling him dad said he wanted an older, fat doctor that smoked, young healthy doctor replyed that dad would have to put up with him, cause all the old, fat, smoking doctors had died! Go figure!

Before I retired from a business that is located in a small town about 6 blocks from the down town area, a coworker went out to the parking at the end of the work day and couldn't find his car. After calling his wife to see if she came and got the car and walking around the parking lot for a half hour he called the police to report the car stolen. Just as a police car pulled in the lot he remembered that he drove the car down town and parked it at lunch break to take care of some errands. After he ran his errands and ate lunch he walked back to work.

In computer servicing have seen this many times. And when on the phone our techs would ask if the computer was plugged in. Often the response was that nobody unplugged it... (Not what we asked...). Next we would ask them to humor us and double check. All was ok after they plugged it in.

And... apparently they DRIVE among us. I took this photo today; just off I-10 near Houston. YIKES. Yes, that is a 4-wheeler strapped to the roof. About 8 people got out of the Suburban.





Made this song stick in my head...

Yer right, Sarah- it's the "Wagonqueen Truckster" all over again!

Do you s'pose they've got a dead Auntie up there somewhere, too?

AND: "Sure, Dad; think Mom'll buy it?"

TOTALLY one of the all time great road movies!

It's been much on my mind recently due to my own son's "decision" to drive his family (read :MY Grandchildren!) all the way cross country to the grand opening of the latest Harry Potter World add-on at Universal Studios Orlando...

Which idea Grandpa and I quickly put the kabosh on by way of buying them train tickets instead. They're goin', all right- but there will be no Dramatic Dives over "Closed Road" barriers on their way there!

Well, since this thread is re started, I moved the motorhome in the dark tonight to get it closer to the house so the hose would reach to fill the water tank. Forgot to unplug the power cord. Thank god it separated from the extension cord but still got caught under the wheels and stretched it enough to split the outer casing. I carefully checked the length of it and plugged it back in to test it. Works fine but I'm not going to take any chances. I bet that cord is going to cost me 2-3 hundred bucks. Could have been worse I guess had I damaged the socket it plugs into or damaged the bay door or something. AARRRRRGGHHHH!!!!!
