Just when we think drivers can’t get any worse and people can not be any more idiotic, along comes Melvin T. Morgan Roofing & Sheet Metal Co. Inc. – hailing from Richmond, Virginia.
The picture doesn’t quite do our story justice, but it still helps us tell the first part of our story, and comment on the offensive nature of the driver of this Melvin T. Morgan truck. You see, we were driving along, minding our own business in the right lane, when this fellow comes flying along in the middle lane, to our left. He sharply cuts his wheel, cutting us off and damn near taking off the front end of our car. You see, it seems being a car length or two ahead of everyone else is very important to Melvin T. Morgan Roofing and worth almost causing an accident over.
But wait, there’s more! Notice the stickers at the top left and bottom right of the Melvin T. Morgan Roofing truck’s tailgate. Yes, one of the bumper stickers we find to be very offensive. “Real men love Jesus”. In case you aren’t aware, that means “If you don’t believe what I do, you are not a real man.” The statement of their religious belief that they are better than us is so important, its on their not once, but twice! That way, you are doubly sure to see how pompous the folks at Melvin T Moran Roofing are – you know, when they cut you off.
Oh, but it gets better! We got on the highway, right behind the Melvin T. Morgan roofing truck, and with no more glare on the window saw the driver was happily chatting away on his cell. Yes, that’s right. Talking on his cell phone is more important than paying attention to his driving. He was paying so little attention, that when we drove up next to him and stayed there, every few seconds giving him “a look”, that it took a couple miles for him to even notice.
And there’s still more! When he finally did look over, I pointed at him, and flipped him off. Fun stuff! Now, we all no Jesus says to turn the other cheek, be forgiving, and all those other great trates that any real man practices – you know, the ones that love Jesus. So, what did the driver of the Melvin T. Morgan Roofing truck do? Did he show what a real man he was? Nope. He flipped us off back. Apparently, real men who love Jesus at Melvin T. Morgan Roofing forgot a few steps.
At that point, we chuckled at the … no word comes to mind here … idiotic? hypocrisy? audacity? Well, we chuckled at whatever it was, sped up, and went about our merry way.
So, hat’s off to you driver of the Melvin T. Morgan Roofing truck. You are our king of horrible driving, offensiveness, and hypocrisy for the day.
