    Good deed for the day / women drivers....

    I'm stopping at a light, and notice the car next to me has an iPhone chilling on its roof.

    I tap my horn, she looks over... I motion upward...as if pointing to my roof... She doesn't get it...

    I hop out, grab the phone off the roof and hand it to her... Luckily it had a rubber case on it, probably the only thing that had kept it from sliding off....

    Her response?



    'OMG Thank You!...I heard it ringing, and I couldn't find where it was!'



    Women drivers....


    Oh.. and I was OC'ing.... So people saw a normal guy, who happened to be armed, doing a good deed... <---on topic...

    Good for you. That's an expensive phone. She'd hear more ringing if she couldn't find it and a $1k bill showed up

    Yes you did a good deed.... unfortunately now it means she'll be driving with the thing in her ear paying even less attention to the road than merely wondering where it is.

    Now, now , now, let's not be criticizing women drivers! I once found a wallet and checkbook on my street that a man had lost. Turned out he had stopped for gas for his boat, put the wallet and checkbook on the back of the boat and left them there when he took off. Got everything back to him safely. He and his family own a tree farm, so I got a free Chistmas tree that year. And no, I wasn't OCing, I wasn't into guns then. We all have lapses of attention from time to time. I have to admit that I do pay much more attention to my surroundings since I have been carrying.

    Good job getting the woman's phone back to her!

    At least we made nice over your awesome DW CBOB. You have impeccable taste.

    And I left the "women drivers" barb for you ladies to handle. My wife never lets me forget the time I left our expensive restaurant leftovers on the roof of the car, and I am a man, yes I am.

    Somewhat on topic, what's the most number of tasks anyone here has witnessed a woman doing while driving in traffic.

    Several years ago I was driving on I-5, in slow traffic, and saw a gal talking on her phone, putting on eye shadow, and sipping coffee, between "coats". She then actually pulled on a sweater and then combed her hair. Apparently she was driving with her knees while doing this. Good thing traffic was slow.

    What's the worst, or even most interesting you've seen?

    Um worst? Probably can't say specifically as this is a family forum. You see some pretty weird stuff when you're two or three feet above most cars and can see in their open sunroofs, and spend most of your times in the right lane. Truckers must have it even worse.

    Let's just say the lady was lonely... and for good reason

    ...And then there was the guy in the low-flying Porche, the victim of his own Karmic bitchslap.

    Sounds like some of the stories my wife and I heard when our Son came home from his job managing a "fast food" restaurant. Drive through can be very interesting.

    I have seen a woman reading a book and also one curling her eyelashes. Traffic wasn't so slow either.

    I witnessed a grown woman BREAST FEEDING AN INFANT FROM THE DRIVER'S SEAT IN A 45 MPH ZONE ON A VERY BUSY STATE HYW!

    But, I don't know how to relate it to OC in a FAMILY FORUM! LOL

    And to think I thought i was the only one who looked at it that way.

    That is truly the "original" open carry, and to be honest, they get harassed almost as much as armed OC.
