Ol' Red still hauling. Causes class stereotyping
My old Ford Ranger may have seen it's best days, but with over 170,000 miles, it still does the job. Robin and I hauled off some e-waste the other day, and then hauled firewood home. (Yes, the blue Ranger is mine also. Bought it not too long ago for $950.) Robin and I have found it ironic that when we go to the Salvation Army or other donation spots with Ol' Red, we have our stuff is turned away. (Clothes, furniture, general goods.) But Robin can take the same stuff in her PT Cruiser, and they will come out and help her bring in the items! One day Robin took Ol' Red to work and left the lights on. One of her co-workers came into the office and reported the truck with the lights on. "We better find out who owns the truck with the lights on, we probably don't want whoever owns that to be stuck here!" Isn't it funny how people prejudge people by what they drive.
