Lost my New GPS

    Talk about a bad day.

    Henry oversleeps so I have to cover his first call.

    When he gets to his van the window is busted out and the GPS is gone. Didn't steal anything else thank goodness. My first question to him was "Is the RainMaster still there?"

    I'm totally distracted at this point going to what would have been my 8am appt that I'm an hour late for and a cop steps out onto the road in front of me points at me and points at the side of the road. I'm hit with a ticket for going 46 in a 30mph construction zone. He does give me a break and says he won't mark the construction zone part which would double the fine.

    I lost 1 about a month ago. Was pissed the servicwe guy didnt lock the truck , but in all reality I suppose it saved me a busted window. What do these things sell for hot ? $40 , Losers destroying peoples property for $40. Weird everything I have had stolen from me happened after I had to put down the rottie.

    Off topic:

    I had a buddy in college that had a Jeep Wrangler that was getting broken into on a weekly basis. Well in the summer he decided to put his 4' aligator or croc whatever it was inside the jeep at night. No joke. The gator/croc died that summer, a rat killed it. Or so he said.

    Just happened to me in NJ. I was only working less than 100 feet from the truck. They walked by on the sidewalk, smashed the window and took the GPS

    Just remember, they are reputed to have invented the traffic circle, so don't get them mad. :)

    They also seem to have invented the OVAL drum for their blacktop rollers.

    They did give us the Jersey Barrier, which has probably saved more lives than the circles took.

    Not to mention deep-fried hot dogs, for which they try to shift the blame, by calling them Texas Wieners.
