Nice lady in OC

I was cruising around town yesterday with my wife when apparently we held up some huge raised truck for an extra few seconds at a left turn. He started laying on his horn, but we waited for traffic to be safe. At the next intersection, a lady in a gold volvo who was behind said truck pulled up next to us and apologized profusely for the 'guh' in the truck.

I like it when things balance out. :-D

+1. Yep - the number of monster trucks on the 91 heading out east is always mind-boggling.

You know, they may seem big, but when they step outside the truck, they seem awful small, especially next to said truck. One word - SCALE. I mean, really, if they need that much machine to be "big", it makes them look rather weak, at least it does to me.

Good point- but then HB is the 909 of Orange County.
