Once again sir, you have caused my mind to think with a broader range.
My first reaction was that most people would have exited their vehicles and been way up on the side of the road somewhere. After-all, there was stopped traffic ahead, serving as a warning of possible things to come ~
this guy isn't screaming or anything. On a scale of 1 to 10, the chances of that rig rear-ending him would be quite high...at least one would think.
What??? He couldn't find the extension cord to plug in his block heater and the only wall plug was in the kitchen. Corvette guys are alot like Harley people..... gotta protect "baby" from the elements y'know.
BTW, years back I delivered a 12 x 20 baby barn to a guy in downtown Moncton NB. He ordered it all finished inside including carpets on the floor and electric heat. It was to put his Harley in during winter. He and wife and 2 kids lived in a top-floor apartment.
Next summer he calls me back. They'd bought a little house and he wanted his "Harley Hutch" moved to the new site. I back in with the roll-back wrecker truck I was using. Is the barn empty? Yep. Harley out? Yup, over there. Anything else in it? Nope. Sooo, I'm down hooking up the building to winch it up on the bed when I hear a chain rattle and around the barn comes a biiiig Pit Bull... all teeth and slobber... running straight at me with evil intent. Without even thinking I smucked him right between the eyes with the back of the steel J-hook in my hand. Dog drops like a rag and don't even twitch. Well Great, I killed his azz I think. Look at Harley guy. He's laughing his butt off. "Woops, forgot about him. You sure showed him who's boss Hohoho". Look over at wife and kids, they're laughing. Ooookay.
HG unclips pooch and drags him aside by one hind leg. Dog don't move even the tiniest bit. Anyways, I get the BB up on the deck and am fastening things down when I catch movement out of the corner of my eye. Dog is getting up. Ohhhhh crap!!!!! Dog gets up, staggers a bit, does a couple of soft woofs and spots me. Crap!!!! Wobbles his way over to me and looks up with tail a-waggin and big silly doggy-grin on his face. Starts licking me and trying to climb into my lap. Harleys are literally holding their sides laughing. Never even raised a bump on the dog's head.
Anyways, got the delivery made. Dog rolling all over me. I'm his best bud like. Never got a call back so I guess they was happy there. Thank Heavens. So I guess that's how you make friends with Harley folks (and pitts) cause I did get several referrals out of them.
