In a bizarre coincidence a truck driver actually shared that joke with me during my arrival.

It seems to have rolled out of the space opposite.

Fake news:

Just last week the council voted to not extend guard rails in parking lots, saying there couldn't possibly be any benefit to doing so.

Most people return from the market simply hoping a shopping cart hasn't found its way into their quarter panel. This is next level.

Maybe next time that person will push their car all the way into the cart corral to prevent such things.

I came. I was careful. I enjoyed the coffee and toasted sandwich. I left. I don't think any of that needed a warning.

Maybe tomorrow I need to stay close to a toilet?

I think you can thank the Chicago Bulls for bovine eyebrows, although I don't think the Bulls design is literal eyebrows.

Can you imagine the human eyes in JB's photo WITHOUT the eyebrows?!

A guy in a SUV flipped out that a guy in a F150 claiming he was too close. The SUV driver grabbed the other guy's cell phone threw it 50ft. then proceeded to try attack then guy then attempted to run him over. He then stopped grabbed the phone as he drove away and then threw it to the ground again. Did I mention the SUV was stolen and this was across the street from the local police detachment motor pool.

No actually we flagged them down as it was happening. If that didn't work we could have gone to the Timmies on the other corner of the street. Special kind of stupid to get into a fight with a stolen car wedged between a police station and a doughnut shop in a city that is only 10 km.sq.

A Robot Whitelining Machine being watched by a man in a truck.

So if a guy in a truck is wasting his time by watching it why couldn't he push it ?

So this morning while driving to the beach to greet the sunrise I came across a silver MK4 Golf on it's roof and two guys looking a little disappointed with themselves.

The Golf had foreign plates on it and the two Gentlemen looked really really suspicious but both looked uninjured.

Apart from the inverted vehicle scenario something gave me a very bad feeling about what I'd just witnessed.

I didn't stop. I flashed my lights at every car coming the opposite way but I didn't stop.

What threw me wasn't that there was a car on its roof on a section of straight road. That's pretty much the norm around here.

It was the way that these guys made me feel that bothered me.

It's really hard to explain. It was an instinct I guess.
