Treachery at it’s finest: when I was young and a little more foolish than I should have been.many years ago I was challenged to a race by a newbe to Chanute AFB.He had just got to the base and did not know the layout of the land,where the speed traps were,I on the other hand did.The fool was bragging on how his brand new car would shut any thing down. So I took him up on the challenge. I said that the race would be on the Highway from the base at Rantoul Ill. to the town of Champain-Urbana and back to the base. I knew were all the speed traps were and he did not.Needless to say I won,the race was for title of the loser’s car.He was crying so bad that I told him I would sell the car back to him for a round of drinks in the whole bar!there was about 20 of us Airman there at the time.
Morale of the story; don’t let your mouth get you A## in trouble. Or no matter how bad you think you are,there is someone around the corner who is badder.
I'll bet he didn't pull that little stunk again. Bwahahahaha. Good job.Have a terrific day Mike. Big hug. 🙂
True, how true. Here it is said, \”Don't let your alligator mouth overload your mockingbird ass.\” And I have been guilty of such overload.
Sandee,I do not think so after what I did to him.He needed to be taught a lession.and I never pulled that stunt again.I just lived in the airmans club while off duty and until it closed.Guess I was even a drunk back than.Coffeypot,I have been know to stick my foot in my mouth a time or two.
I've been know to do a little overloading in my time, but not to that extent. Good lesson!
I challenge you to a blogging race!
Southern Mom,we all are guilty of the overloading to some extent.Speedcat,a blogging race?why not!
Good lesson for him. Hmm, blog race!? Gentlemen, start your engines, ah blogs.
Tooo funny!! Love this post. Hey, have I ever told you that I love the picture of the Cleveland skyline. Since I don't know anything about Ceveland the skyline is really pretty.
AIR,I learned to be treacherous from my Dad.blog race yes indeed,care to join in?JC,I'm glad you enjoy the skyline.
What a great story…and that was in the part of the country near where I grew up! My dad used to say, \”Don't let your mouth write a check your a$$ can't cash.\”
Lee,yep that was a great lesson indeed to learn.
Hi Mike,Just stopping to say 'hi' and thanks for all your prayers and well wishes. I hope you are well and happy.
