A reader sent me this. I’m laughing hard right now. It’s about a deer accident. It’s funny. But first, a related note (not funny, but relevant).
I know people who have hit deer. A friend of mine, who died recently at age 90, had to travel nearly every night for several decades in the Sierra mountains of Northern California. He hit a dozen deer in all those years. The highway department would salt the roads back then to dissolve winter ice, and the deer would be drawn to the shoulder of the roads for the salt. When a car approached, they’d get spooked and dart out right in front of it, and that was that — dead deer, damaged car. Sometimes, as a driver, it was almost impossible to miss hitting an animal.
My friend was not a bad driver. He just drove those dark roads for so many years.
Anyway, back to the subject at hand, the funny part of this story. The caption of this illustration is:
“When the insurance company wants a diagram of the accident.”
(I hope you are laughing!)
