George & Wendy Show
The people who make the rules of the road should have to see a grown man running around in his underwear in the middle of the night before they make everyone park at the same time.
Have you ever had to dodge "a guy in full clown makeup and a guy with a snake wrapped around his neck stopped, both out of their cars and arguing in the fast lane? No?"
After a conversation with Wendy, a four-year-old to her Mom: “That lady said he brings everything in a truck, he brought my shoes and he's going to bring our baby when it comes!”
“Miss, could I get you to smell this for me and tell me if it's good. The date says today, but I never trust 'em. Can't smell too good, myself.” / “You should ask your doctor if you have questions!”
Wendy's "love/hate relationship with technology continues to blossom – mostly toward the hate side."
For want of JIT load: "I watched a little kid have a near seizure because there were no Lucky Charms on the shelf. (I myself was somewhat disappointed, but refrained from throwing myself to the floor and screaming, unlike the kid.)"
I have it on good authority the FMCSA will be unveiling their “We are the Borg” campaign sometime next year. It will require drivers to look directly into an inward-facing dashcam every 30 seconds and moo.
George pays a $215 lumper fee, and Wendy gets a good story out of it. "They're now called 'freight handlers,' I'm told. You can call 'em The Queen of England, for all I care, it doesn't change the fact that they're extortionists."
