I live in a rural area. Every now and then we get some real gems complain to the local politicians. Like the other day, at the town meeting, a woman requested that the Deer Crossing sign be removed from out on Potlicker Road. She said that they's too many deer hit and kilt and she didn't think it was a safe place for them to be crossing no mo'.
The secretary for one area representative was very irate. She had
plugged the power-strip cord back into itself. She was returning
it, cuz it wasn't working: her system wasn't coming on.
Her husband is the chief of police. I'd felt really dumb, cuz I
locked my keys in the car. But he told me to go on and do my
grocery shopping, while he jimmied my car open. When I came out
to the parking lot, he was sweating and cussin up a storm, trying to
get my driver's door open. I opened the passenger's side and
started to put my groceries in, and he said, "yeah, got that side open
in about 2 minutes, it's the driver's side that's giving me problems."
