I was there, phone was in use

The guy that hit the other car was talking on a cellphone when the accident happened. I was behind him up until that point and one of my paint crew in the van commented on his swerving. I told him only women on cellphones were dangerous while putting on makeup, boy was I wrong. Going to be hard living down that comment, it was a guy driving and talking on the cellphone.

child pickup?

A new service being offered there is drive thru child pick-up. Glad no children were hurt.
