While traveling last fall on our way south to Pueblo, Colorado, to have our overheating rear radiator problem fixed, we pulled into a truck stop to refuel. Little did we know that there would soon be a truck with a funny sign on its side pulling in, along with a truck driver with amusing anecdotes to tell.
Just when we started to clean our windshield, this truck pulled up next to us. When the driver got out to begin refueling and clean his windshield, we walked over and started a conversation. Laughingly, we pointed to the sign, “We Haul MILK on Weekends” posted on his septic truck. Yup, a septic truck. He was quite congenial and laughingly quipped back, “Oh, it’s Wednesday. Ah, it’s a good day to buy milk!”
We had a few more laughs about the funny sign and he further confided, saying, “You wouldn’t believe how many people have actually asked me how true my sign was.” We replied, “You’re kidding right?” He said, “Nope. And you can’t fix stupid – even with duct tape.”
Have you seen a funny sign or roadside attraction? Send us a photo here.
Thanks to Rye Septic Service, LLC, and its congenial driver, for giving us a chuckle.
