    Default RE: True story

    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."

    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.

    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.

    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.

    ... but the evidence on Jakes camera phone tells otherwise.

    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.

    LOL!!! I'd like to see her explain that one to the cops...

    TomTom (do not pass) Go (to jail)

    I wonder if her car was also equipped with BlondeStar...

    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!
