Small town lesson
There are some lessons one learns pretty quick in a small town.
Don’t tailgate the manure spreader. It’ doesn’t matter how slow the tractor is going -wait. Give ‘em room.
Once there were these annoying folks from out of town -in a small convertible and with the top down. They got right up to the back of the spreader and honked their horn incessantly. Now that farmer is usually a pretty laid back fellow, but everyone has a limit. He turned the manure spreader on and slimed the heck out of that little car.
For pretty much the same reason, I try and keep my distance from politicians. You never know what might rub off on you.
