Not funny. Really. Not funny.

So I'm motorcoachin' along I-10 on my way to the house. Hardly any traffic. Suddenly a HP car beside me beeps his siren and has the blue lights goin'. 'What the.......I mean......heck? Pull to the shoulder. HP pulls down the right side so I get up and open the coach door. "Good afternoon, sir. Were you towing a silver Dakota pick up?" I must have turned grey. I'm staring at the guy in disbelief. "I lost my truck?" I stammered. "Naw. Its still hooked on and your lights are working. But you did leave this at the Flying J." And hands me my wallet. I looked at him and said, "Your azz is fired." He cracked up. "If you could have seen your face. Sorry for the prank but your on my route and I thought you'd like the wallet back." "Oh yeah. Thanks. Now that was a good one. And your still fired." With that we got back on the road.

It could have been worse.

You could have had a warrant for a parking ticket in 1994.

In reading I thought for sure you lost your toad [wow]. I'm sure your expression it gave him plenty to laugh about that day. Nice to see all went well and you didn't loose your wallet.

HP with a sense of humor! You gotta like that for a change and then throw in the kindness act of driving your wallet to you! Wow!

Not MH related, but a similar story. Back in the late seventies, I was driving across Texas and stopped for gas in a small town. After the fill-up, I was merrily driving along, appx 6 miles from town, when I noticed a pick-up behind me. As he got closer, he began waving his arm out the window. I first thought he wanted to pass, as it was a two-lane road, I slowed and eased closer to the edge of the highway to give him room to do so. He stayed behind me and kept waving, so I stopped. A young teen got out of the pick-up and walked to my window with my gas cap in his hand! I was so shocked that all I could say was "Thanks". He smiled and turned around and left so quickly that I didn't even think to offer him a tip.
I doubt many would make that kind of effort today.

Steve,

That is one of the better ones I have heard. Gave me a good chuckle.

I know and wont say who but not me, someone who fueled and then drove down the road to be stopped by a trooper who told him look in the back of the pickup camper. His wife was missing . He got all flustered and the trooper told him relax the other car is bringing her in a couple of minutes but I think she is a little hot. It cost him for years over that one. He says it was her fault for not telling him she got out to go get coffee.... You cant win motorhomes are a lot safer.....

A campground we use regularly has a sign at the exit:

Steps Folded?
Awning Retracted?
Sewer Hose Stored?
Spouse on board?

Friends of mine were headed to Colorado for an elk hunt. One of them was in the back, sleeping. They stop for gas in Kansas and both up front head inside. Unknown to them, guy in the rear gets out and heads to the men's room. Front two finished paying and came back to the truck and head west, not checking on the man in the rear. Rear guy comes back and finds the truck gone. Panics and gets some guy at the truck stop to chase the truck, paying him $50 for his trouble. They catch the truck a few miles down the road, but the driver ignores the chase car figuring is was some sort of greenie yelling and shaking their fists out the window. When traffic allowed, they pull along side and my pal yells and finally has to get the chase driver to stop in front so he can get out and stop the truck. Needless to say they checked the rear from then on and counted noses.

That's just the Texas (well, Hill Country anyhow) way.

You must have been on I-10 headed west. The only Flying J on I-10 is west of Tallahassee. Aren 't our troopers kind.
