Well I did most of my concert goings when young....

August 16, 2019 07:53AM
being young who didn't love driving.....at the same time we all (guys I went with) all had a smattering of some type of hot rod, street car.....Mine was a '62 Impala SS with a 409.....another guy had a Torino GT.....a '55 Chevy....save for a guy who had a rusted out Datsun B 210....

At any rate we did not have a big choice of shows to attend, either in Charleston WV. or Roanoke VA, or Blacksburg VA.....so from our home base in WV. it was like 2-21/2 hours anywhere we went.....But man sometimes the ride was more of an experience then the shows..

One time the buddy who owned the wee bitty Datsun 210, but hopped up a bit and a Craig Quadraphonic system (House speakers in the rear hatch) took it to a bad Company show in Charleston, we picked up a guy from school who was really a head type guy (sure man, yeah man) to all things said to him......At any rate he made the mistake of putting this goof in the front bucket passenger seat.....as soon as he took the spot my friend told him if you want to light up a cig (or whatever)...tell me because the lighter in those cars was on the far side of the drivers side of the dashboard, the headlight switch was on the drivers right side, they both looked similar.

So the goof ball says..."Sure man"......and a bit later he just reaches over and pushes in the button....it turns off our lights, we are returning from the concert so it's dark...it's pitch black because my friend decided to take the "scenic" route back home, not the highway. The worst part was he pushed the knob when we were in some hair pin type curves...we skidded on gravels. My buddy was a very good driver and nothing bad happened....

I swear this is a true story too...this same pot head got a job at the resort I worked at ( I was a bellhop....my 1st real job...16 yrs. old). the cat gets a job in 1 of the restaurants on premises as a dish washer.....His mother comes in (she headed housecleaning of the main Hotel at the time)she came up to me and asked me to go tell Shane that she wouldn't pick him up after his shift.....I go into the back of the restaurant and this guy has water running over his hands/arms in the sink with dishes and the cat is ASLEEP......no @#$%&....sleeping with water pouring all over him...I shook him and sure enough what do you think he said....you got it 'Sure man".....

Kinda went of course on the post.....
