In lieu of an actual post

My wife drove me to work today, so she could have the car later on.  We must have been only 9 minutes or so from my work when we saw a hot air balloon not too far off the ground.  I pointed it out to my son, and he marvelled at it (as he does with all balloon-like things), and we kept on driving.  At the next light we caught what must have been the balloon’s chase vehicle (I know it sounds dumb of me, but I never thought about how a balloon would land before.  Now, of course, a chase vehicle makes perfect sense).  

As we pulled up behind the vehicle, I could read everything on the back of the trailer, but one particular thing caught my eye.  I tried to take a pic with my phone, but it turned out horribly, so here’s a stock image from the web instead.

“Frequent Stops And Indecision” I LOVE IT!  If we could only label all drivers this way, I think it’d really help out on the roads.  It’d be sort of like the beginning of Bedazzled with Brendan Fraser and Elizabeth Hurley.

  • Rage-filled soccer mom
  • Scared of everyone, so will drive like no one else is there
  • Can’t live without a phone bolted to the side of their head
  • Doesn’t care if they hit you because their car was $50
  • Wants to hit you because his wife just left him
  • Just played Forza 2 for 10 hours.
I think that if everyone had signs that were as honest as a balloon chase vehicle, we could avoid quite a few accidents.  We wouldn’t be assuming that the car next to you knew what they were doing!  I want to hear some other labels from people!

    Think I am the S**T and drive like I own the road because I know you will get out of the way

    Old as dirt and just about as slow

    Can’t do two things at once and right now I am chewing gum

    Roger that on the Forza 2 remark. You can always tell which game I have been playing by the way I am currently driving. If I’m driving haphazardly, barely missing street lamps, pylons, pedestrians, etc., I’ve been playing Grand Theft Auto. If I’m driving fast, but smooth, not using my signals (or blinkers if you’re from Utah), and trying to pass everyone, occasionally trying to knock someone into the divider, etc., I’ve been playing Forza Motorsport. If I’m driving slow, staying in the same lane, and not yielding to anyone…. I’m still playing… on my cell phone. HAHA.

    My all-time favorite is one I saw many moons ago, I believe in Los Angeles:

    “Caution! This vehicle changes direction at random and stops for no apparent reason!”

    I have been on the hunt for one myself since. =)
