Last Call: Multitasking Edition

The things you see while driving down the road. I can’t tell if this woman is out for an extreme workout jog, some fresh air time for her tot, or partner in a budget lawn care service business. Of course it could be all three. I was just drawn to the image because that looks like my lawnmower. Maybe I should go out to the garage and make sure it’s still there.

      Manhole cover.

        Had the same idea first, but no, it’s a shadow with the texture and shape of a manhole.

      Despite the wheels, now I can only see it as hovering above the sidewalk!

    She was fed up with pushing the stroller when she realized the mower is self propelled.

    It was probably the toddler’s idea. She’s probably just happy to be able to get her run in.

      So many questions!
      1.) What happens next? The billboard signs on the next arch promise mayhem… need more GIFs.
      2.) Why are you filming this so close to what certainly will be a disaster off your starboard bow? Zoom lens? White car on the right boots it to be ahead of the carnage, camera car just stays in the shrapnel path.

        Why is he driving with the bucket in the air? Will the truck even go into drive without the bucket lowered?

          These Questions Remain.

        Laugh if you want, but that minimizes hop ons.

      I once had to drive a cube truck that had a small boom and bucket on top – it said the max height (4m? 4.05m?) right beside the driver’s door, probably the tallest thing I’ve ever driven. Had a massive pucker moment coming up on a railway bridge with a max height of 4.1m.

    I propose a toast! To that toasted white bread color called “Champagne”, but we all know and loathe as ‘beige’.
    IH Scouts were offered as one of their confused set of special editions in a trim level (including such luxuries as upholstered doors and headliner) called the “Champagne Scout”. After all my years in the Scout game, I’m still not sure if ‘Champagne’ referred to the color of the Scout or the trim level. The advertising featured a dark beige Scout in a suburban, rather than rural, setting. The onset of beige?
    In the 1990s there was this British band that had a hit named “Champagne Super Nova”, which I thought was about a beige Chevy mid-sized sedan with a comically outsized engine block. Boy was I wrong, but the image stuck in my head. Three Vermont hicks and a bong streaking through the sky in a rusty Chev, amirite?
    Anyway, if you’re still reading, Justin Townes Earle, royal heir to the outlaw country music empire founded by his forebears and namesakes, has deigned to write a little ditty proclaiming his desire to swoop down out of the clouds and take a ride with a working class girl in a Champagne Corolla.

      i learned to drive in a “champagne” 380SL! it was not a great color for the car. we always just called it “gold”, but it was really more metallic beige. looked all right until you saw one in red or something. if the car looked good, it was despite the color, rather than because of it.
      i subsequently bought my first car, an old Maxima, which was in a shade of beige called “pebble beige”. now, “pebble” is a fuzzily-defined marketing word that can’t be held to any sort of standard of precision; pebbles come in many colors, and probably even the ones one might call “beige” cover a broad spectrum of hues. but beige it was, and i appreciate the directness of calling it so.×432.jpg
      representative images only. not my cars. my Maxima was an SE with the five-spoke wheels, but i couldn’t find any images of SEs in “champagne”.

        That’s actually a proper color for an SL Mercedes. I bear them no ill will even though I was T-boned and flipped upside down by a champagne colored SL. The driver was also dressed in champagne colored clothes and jewelry, and might have had a bit of the active ingredient in champagne in their system. On that car it’s more nouveau riche than suburban mom, but it’s a fine line.
        Seriously? Who teaches anyone to drive in a 3 litre 2 seater coupe?!? My mom let me take the wheel of her 327 first gen Camaro and I immediately popped a hubcap off on the first left turn (I was12). After that I was taught on the Toyota Startlet.
