My wife had gone to North Carolina to have Thanksgiving Dinner with her father’s aunt. I was heading North out of Savanna with another load and running hard with another driver. Our conversations had been of family and Holiday plans, then of other trucker subjects.
During a break in our chatting, a lady asked me why I was in such a hurry. “I have a date with a married woman.”, was my answer. That lady called me everything but human, I reckon she was a Bible Thumper from the Old South. When she stopped to take a breath, I said, “Well, ma’am, I’ve been with her before, she’s already had two of my babies!”. That set her off on an even worse tirade.
The other trucker, listening in finally quit laughing enough to ask me, “How long you been married to that woman yer dating?” “Just about 4 years, now.” , I replied. I never heard any more from that lady, either.
Moral: Don’t assume that what yer stickin yer nose into is as bad as it smells.
