Before I crossed the border on my way to one of my favourite destinations, I took my MINI for a little bath at the local ESSO. It looks pretty good all cleaned up 🙂
Pulling up to pay the $3.50 toll to cross the bridge, I rolled down my window and handed the toll-taker $3.55.
Turns out the toll-taker wasn’t so interested in giving me my change. No sirree, he took my money then leaned way out of his booth and declared with much gusto “That’s one FINE machine you’ve got there!!! Did you just wash it?”
“Yes sir, newly washed.”
He eyed the MINI and stated, “There must be more room in that car then it looks eh, the trunk can’t be that small!”
“Well, truth be told the trunk is pretty small,” I replied, wondering if I was going to get my 5 cents change.
He wasn’t interested in giving me any money back, only interested in talking about the MINI as he continued, “Do you think the MINI would fit a man like me that is 6″1′?”
“Ummm, yes….,” can I leave now…
I turned to see the gate open, I rolled up my window and squealed out of the lane leaving my 5 cents change behind.
I wasn’t interested in passengers 😛
