Saddle on the side of the road

You can learn a few things on the side of the road.

The ride had decided not to go any further Friday night coming back from a football game. So after sitting and waiting on a tow that didn’t show — and I had called AAA — I got a rescue ride back to the office. From there, it was a rescue ride home.

I got the spare car and went back to the office Saturday. Made more calls for a tow. Eventually, a tow out of Savannah was dispatched and in the fading light of Saturday evening, the truck got hooked up and carried to the mechanic’s.

It was talking with the tow driver that was enlightening. He said he was working on two hours of sleep. The company he works for also tows for the city of Savannah and on Friday night, they were busy. Somebody had to clear the streets of parked cars for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon, and they spent the next several hours yanking cars that were parked on the race path so the thousands of runners could hit the pavement freely.

Wonder what those residents or guests thought when they woke up Saturday morning to the sound of charging feet and no cars in the street.
