what the ????

On my way back from town I got behind a SUV pulling a boat. I knew right away something was amiss. As I got closer I realized that neither trailer rim had a tire. He was pulling the boat down the road about 35-40 mph just on the rims

I know PT Barnum said there was a fool born every minute - is the same true about idiots?

No, idiots are far more common than fools.

Back when I did hot-shot delivery one of our regular runs was daily pickup at the downtown post office for a corporate customer. Lots of drivers at the dock doing that. Saw one in a small pickup that didn't have room for all the mail so he tied one of those large canvas mail bins to his back bumper with rope trailer style and took off down the busy day time downtown streets. The bin had no top and the mail was piled above the top edge

I only have a cheap cell phone, it doesn't take pictures. I wouldn't have that but my wife thinks she ought be able to get in touch with me any time she thinks she needs to....... but then she is the one that pays the bill

I wonder if that trailer had tires when it was first hooked up, or how long he drove it that way.

That's probably what happened to my letter to Uncle Sal in Houston
