Today I was driving down (well actually up) a one-way street in front of Bangor's City Hall when a woman in a large van was driving down the one way street . . . I rolled down my window and politely informed her that she was driving the wrong way down a one-way street to which she replied (and I kid you not), "My Tom Tom says to go this way" . . . to which I glibly replied, "Well I'm JJ and JJ says not to go this way." :D

Hey Jake I saw you today over by the airport in the passenger seat of a fire car. I was waving and either you didnt see me or you where ignoring me so that the guy driving wouldnt know that you knew me.:D :D

Yup still influencing young minds behind the wheel.
Probably I have been driving all week. Spring break. Next week back to the 12 hr. days. This week has been nice only nine hours a day.:D

Well I was out and about today . . . helped inspect a gas fireplace, Bobo's and then the Home Show . . . I'm pretty oblivious to what folks are doing in a vehicle . . . you could have mooned me and I wouldn't have noticed -- really, I pay more attention to what the vehicle and traffic is doing rather than what the people in the vehicle are doing . . . true story . . . a few years ago I was driving south with my wife and in Massachusetts two women in a car drove my my 4Runner with the Firefighter plates and supposedly one of them flashed me . . . at least that's what my wife tells me since I completely missed the show. :D

No, honestly I missed the entire show . . . and my wife has a cell phone, but it's an old one and we rarely use it . . . in fact I have no idea of what the cell phone number is. I can tell you that my wife didn't miss seeing the show and she was a bit ticked off.

That is HYSTERICAL! LMAO
I work for the company that supplies the maps for Tom Tom and that street w/o the oneways is definitely a no no. Would you remember the name of that street Jake? And your response to her BTW was perfect!
