I went to ship off the motorcycle seat to Raccoossum today and walked in to the local UPS store with just the seat. I didn't have a box at home big enough for the seat. I laid the seat down on the counter and the young man asked me what it was.

It looks like a seat to me, a motorcycle seat to be more specific.

He measured it and weighed it. Then he asked me if it's hazardous material.

Only if it's on fire.

Oh I tried so hard not to be more sarcastic. I know he had to ask me about if it is hazardous, but the first question.....it's a SEAT! Sometimes a little common sense is all it takes.

Hope everyone had a safe and merry Christmas and New Year's. Be safe out there this year.

Probably habit, people show-up with boxes all day long, you can imagine you'd have a set spiel.. Probably thought himself daft after the fact.. At least We can hope he did :)

You should have told him it's only hazardous when attached to the motorcycle. ;)

Common sense ain't so common. Remember, the guy is working is a shipping store. If he was a rocket scientist he'd be working for NASA.
Might be all the JOB he can get, take it easy on him:)
Now, for a funnier here's your sign.....
A buddy of mine travels to hunt a lot, quite often by planes....
He returns from a hunt where he had been BOW hunting....
As he is claiming his BOW, the TSA agent asked if it was loaded, yes, is it loaded, and he had to explain that just because his arrows were in the same case didn't mean it was loaded! If you are curiois, this agent was thesame that checked it on a week prior!And these people are a major key to our national security!

Got me another "sign" today ;)

Went to the Post Office earlier with that box for Gnarly, only to find the business portion CLOSED on weekends...
Yeah, NOW I remember they claim to be saving $$$ by closing 1/2 day Wednesdays and all day on weekends :D

Oh, I forgot to add this....The email that Raccoossum sent with her address had a "TY :)" before the name and address line. He added that. I told him that was a "thank you" and a smiley face. He asked me if I wanted him to remove it. Um....YES!

My sign. I got to ride today for the first time in two weeks. I'm riding up Custer Rd and I noticed my vision is kind of blurred. Thinking 'I forgot my glasses!' With a helmet on and face shield, I really can't feel them. At a stop light, I jerked my visor up and felt around. They were there on my nose ****ed at a 45 degree angle about to fall off my face. These things happen to seniors. Quickly fixing the situation, I jammed my shield down and looked around to see if anyone noticed.
