The Weird Truck

Every day around lunch time a big white truck comes and parks in front of my house, or between my house and my neighbor's. I just heard its engine idling and went to look. Yep, there it was, a bit late today, maybe because of inclement weather. I saw it was from Minnesota. Then, as it drove away, I saw it said US Mail on the back.

Why?

I'm not on the beaten path. The guy has to drive into a trailer court and go over a speed bump to get here. Only thing I can figure is that he's hopping on a neighbor's unencrypted network to check his email on an iPod or something.

Hmm. Perhaps he's a spy, or your neighbor is a spy and he's under surveillance. Or he's carrying on a torrid affair with the neighbor, in his truck to avoid leaving evidence. Cat napper? Or maybe free internet stealer. :-)

I remember in Cape Cod our hotel internet didn't work and I NEEDED to send a message to a friend we were meeting the next day in Rhode Island (plus I needed mapquest directions to get there). We were driving down the main road in this small town, my daughter with the lap top open on her lap looking for a signal. We finally found one at a laundromat that was closing for the night. They probably thought we were criminals, sitting in the parking lot in the dark with our lap top open. LOL Sometimes you do what you have to do.

I like the idea that my neighbor's daughter is having a torrid affair. Now that truck will make me smile instead of scratching my head.

If you have wi-fi, I would check to see if there are any connections marked "FBI surveillance van" or "police surveillance van." You never know.

Checking who's connected is beyond my technical skills! They need to put a big "secret agent" sign on their vehicle for me to catch on ;-)

IT ISN'T ME STALKING YOU.

*shifty*

My panel truck is blue.

Bang on the side and ask for ice cream. Then see what they have to say for themselves.

Mm. Ice cream. That's a solid plan.

Walk up to the window, lean against the door all casual-like, and say, "So... I hear you've got some candy. *saucy wink*"

Actually, maybe you shouldn't do that. If you don't end up with a drug deal on your hands, you might end up thrown in the back the van where they will have their wicked way with you :-/

Looking for the downside in all that...
