Last Thursday on my way home from work South bound 405 at Lakewood I see a fellow boater on the right shoulder with a triple axle sporting 6 rims and only 5 tires. I pull over to lend assistance and it's a BD'r! We meet and greet and he has a friend who is also a very well know boat dealer, who delivers a mechanic, tire, jack and tools to the scene. Now that's customer service, I tip my hat to you sir!!! The flat was on the left side right up against the #4 lane, so I put my shiny new BD Red rain jacket to work 100 yrd up the freeway holding it out like a matador and slowing down traffic while forcing them over to the #3 so the tire could be changed safely. We caused a sig-alert, so if you were coming home from Southbay last Thursday and fucked in traffic... neener, neener, neener. 15 minutes later we were on our way. Cool to meet you Blake. Today on my way home from work South bound 405 at the 605 I see a dude in the carpool lane with a early 80's or late 70's model Ford pick up pulled over. Hood up and a little smoke coming out, dude is behind the truck with his hands over his head in disbelief of his ride going up in smoke. Traffic was at a crawl and I was in the far right hand lane. I pulled over, got out, grabbed the fire extinguisher and turned to head over to him and ............. Ker Fucking Boom! Game over............... this was now a little too much fire for the kitchen/garage extinguisher. Wish I was there a couple minutes sooner, just might have had a different ending to this story and saved his truck. Sometimes ya win............. sometimes ya lose. If you were coming home from Southbay today and fucked in traffic..... it wan't my fault. I need a helmet cam for the rides home. See ya next Thursday.
