Instead of prepping our post for today, we spent yesterday traveling. A beloved family member has recently passed away and, while we couldn't be at the memorial, we could be with Renée's Mom while the service was being held. Family clings to family in sad times and we were clinging.
It was a wonderful time to be together but it meant we had to travel a lot of miles in a very short time. The trip back wasn't easy. If there was a High Wind Advisory, we missed it but the winds were fierce. When the traffic in front of us started braking abruptly, we knew something was wrong.
A minute later, we were creeping past an overturned tractor trailer. From what we could see, it had blown over. There are some days when owning a small car is not a bad thing.
You'll notice we failed to get a picture of the big rig. Caught off-guard, we never thought to reach for a cell phone. No, we only remembered to use our cell's camera after we stopped at a gas station in the middle of the desert. In the center of abso-frickin'-nowhere. The image on the left is what resulted.
In the Men's Bathroom, Harrell found this sign taped over the urinal: OUT OF ORDER DO NOT USE. In case this wasn't quite clear enough, the staff had helpfully added, That means no p*ssing in here.
And -- here's the part that caused the photo to be snapped -- below that, just letting the management know he, personally, had received the message, one of their patrons wrote in, OK, before signing it... Steve. So, if anyone does ignore the warning, we can pretty well be assured it isn't Steve.
Somehow all of the above resulted in our finding an article in Business Insider called I Used the Worst Men's Bathroom in America. And we're sharing it with you.
