I thought so, too, but just in case....I'll wait to post the new TAG until I see the verdict of this one.

Fixt,,,,, I had a customer call while I was out on the road and needed to make a detour to so he wouldn't need to paddle a 22' boat back to the dock.

Now that's funny...
Did you have to fetch him from the lake (or other body of water)?
Guess you have him by the short hairs on the trip charge if that's the case.

I guess library book drop box pic is good then!

Next up, since it's that time again: find a school (this one's especially for the hormonally impaired!)

Customers never seem to amaze me. The boat has been acting up for a couple weeks (he never said anything prior to today). So today he decides to take his girlfriends kids tubing. He has a hell of a time getting the engine to fire and once it does, it's spitting and sputtering. So he loads everyone in the boat and takes them to the other side of the lake where the engine quits and he can't restart it. He then calls me from the boat all panicky and doesn't know what to do. He's in a bay where everyone anchors and swims, the water is only 3' deep and says one of the guys there can tow him to another customers nearby dock and I'll meet them there. I get there and he tells me the engine won't run. Of course I turn the key , hit the starter button and it fires right up but it is running rough. Pull the distributor cap and the electrodes are all carboned up,,, scrape the carbon off and send him on his way purring like a kitten.

At least I'll be getting paid for riding the bike today!!

OK after hunting for some other TAGs had to switch bikes for a better seat.

Next up a full service car wash.

What makes a car wash "full service"? A self service sign???
Is that where people do the washing?

OK OK the sign was digital and kept switching. This location had a self serve section also.
A full service car wash is one that you do not do the wshing. Drive up and let them wash it. Can even be a fundraiser car wash that kids do just as long as you are not doing the washing.

Now stop busting my balls and go get it.

What about a creek?



Technically, the stream is named Gooney Run. I assume this will work. New tag later today.

As I was taking that photo a cruiser comes down the hill, behind me in this next photo. Didn't get a pic of him coming down the hill. My jaw was on the ground watching this guy...


55 mph, passing zone, this idiot is doing 5 mph with no turn signal on, with a van behind him and more vehicles gaining quickly. For a minute I thought the van was with him and I thought the bike was coasting to the bottom of the hill, broken down. Then I thought he was pulling in to talk to me. Then I realize he's hanging a left turn and going into the campground!
He better learn to ride that thing or hes going to get his ass run over!
