Here’s a tip: if you’re going to put a mattress on the roof of your car, either using something stronger than bungies or stay of the interstate.
I was cruising down I-94 the other day – and by cruising, I mean driving and NOT in the Sen Larry Craig sense of the word – when I saw a car ahead with a mattress pointing at the sky. Drivers were freaking out all over because it looked like the mattress was going to launch at any minute. Not good.
Here’s what it looked like after a truck pulled in front of the guy to slow him down and potentially save lives:
I tried to get a good shot of the mattress straining the crap out of the bungies, but this is the best I could get without causing an accident of my own:
The almost airborne mattress is two cars behind me in this shot. I actually pointed my camera phone into the rear-view mirror to grab this shot rather than turning around 180-degrees in relatively fast moving congested traffic. Safety first.
