Road Rage

I was driving into the civic center today for a meeting with a bunch of lawyers when I noticed this truck behind me riding my tail. As I drove on, the driver of this truck seemed to grow more desperate to follow me. Being the suspicious type, I did my best to ditch the guy, but he became even more aggressive in chasing me. I pulled into a busy construction site, hoping to have at least some backup if things got rough, and to my amazement, the truck flew through traffic cones and pulled along side me. Having shed my seatbelt and opened the door in anticipation of a quick exit, I stopped cold when I recognized the logo of a railroad on the side of his truck. I looked up to see the driver just five feet from me. Like nothing had happened, he very calmly asked, "Where'd you get that cool knuckle hitch?" He was talking about the trailer hitch on my truck being a replica of a railroad coupler. It turns out he is a signal maintainer for a railroad (to remain nameless) that operates downtown. I'm glad to know that safety is his number one priority.

I showed my knuckle hitch to a friend, he couldn't figure it out. I told him it was a knuckle, like on trains. He asked what I would be towing with it. My reply to him was "boxcars and such." He simply said "oh", thinking I really would be using it for such things.
