He and She: Road Worriers II

He and She were driving back from one of His rehearsals …

pass with car ... er, careShe: “When will the people who make the road signs learn to spell?

He: “Hm?”

She: “Since when does ‘car’ have an ‘E’ in it?”

He: “So you wish to pass with car?”

She: “Don’t you?”

He: “Since that’s what I’m driving at the moment, yeah. But what if I’m on a bike? Or behind the wheel of a truck? Does that mean I’m not allowed to? I’m just going to have to suck it up and get in line behind whoever’s leading the parade? Truckers on a schedule aren’t going to be terribly happy with you.”

She: “But how are you supposed to pass with care?

He: “Dunno. If you’re asking me, I’d prefer to pass with acceleration. But that doesn’t fit on the sign.”

She: “So ‘care’ is code for zzooom-zoom? That takes energy. Can I pull up to a care station and get a tankful?”

He: “Or a charge.”

She: “Yeah. They’ll charge, all right.”

He: “Count your blessings. They see me coming, they’ll insist on cash.”

She: “Or they won’t care?”

He: “They sure as hell won’t. They’ll take a pass.”

She: “At whom?”

He: “Don’t go there …”

    You forgot the “love your neighbor” part!

    And the part where we’re supposed to stop emergencies! You forgot that, too!

    What about “be alert?” All across the country they tell you to be a lert. Is there that much need for lerts? Should I have majored in lert? What are the salaries like? Do they need lerts in Hawai’i? ‘Cause if they do, I’m becoming a lert right now!

    I think all the lerts moved to New Zealand, Nathalie. At least they have their own network down there …
