Saturday, April 20, 2013

I had a flat tire on I-95 yesterday; so, I pulled over, got out of the car and opened my trunk.

I took out my cardboard men, unfolded them and stood them at the rear of my car facing oncoming traffic. They look so lifelike you wouldn't believe it!

Just as I had hoped, cars started slowing down looking at the men which made it much safer for me to work on the side of the road.

People honked and waved, and it wasn't long before a police car pulled up behind me.

He wanted to know what the heck I was doing, so I calmly explained that I was changing my flat. He told me he could see that, but demanded to know what the heck my cardboard men were doing standing at the rear of my car.

I couldn't believe he didn't know! So I told him ... "Well," I explained to the angry Policeman ....
"They're my Emergency Flashers!!!!"

I go to court in April.

(Dang Police. No sense of humor.)

Sorry...photo had to be removed due to viewer complaints. They were offended and found it inappropriate. My apologies.

  Hope the officer at least helped you finish your task! Too bad that you had to take the picture down - I was looking forward to getting a better view. :) Neat idea too to use those emergency flashers rather than just the ones on your car. You probably had more people slow down to a better pace by using the men than just your cars.

    Why were people offended? Where the cardboard men naked or something?

    Were do I file a complaint about the lack of picture evidence? I really hate censorship. I much prefer the if I don't want to see/hear it, I won't look/listen approach.

    Was he just concerned about the "flow of traffic" or jealous of the background?

Yea for you!!

    I finally got around to reading the email I missed while I was on Vacation. This is an excellent choice for "Emergency Flashers". emoticon
Curiosity tells me to ask you what the Judge said.
I saw that other respondents had the same question. So please, do tell. emoticon

    A) I can't believe that some people are offended by something like a naked behind - especially as shapely ones as the ones I saw on the preview of the dailyspark email, which lured me here ^^.
That's something I just can't get over somehow. What's offensive about a person's backside? Everybody's got one... and there was nothing else to be seen, no close-up, no whatsoever...

B) I think what you did is great. Pity the policeman didn't see it the same way.
Good luck to you in court. Hopefully the judge will see the practical (as well as the humorous) side and have a good laugh with you.

    Oh dear....I found this funny as did my daughter - and anything that gets traffic to slow down on a nutso highway isn't a bad thing. P.S. picture was still up on my old email link. We laughed.

    I think it is awesome...many times people including police ignore distress on the road...This way you are protected because they slowed down instead of mowing you down. Good Luck in court...I would find you not guilty of anything except a great sense of humor!
