As some of you know, I live in South Georgia (yeeehaaaw!). And we've been having some bad storms the past couple of days. Well, today I'm driving to an appointment (out in the middle of nowhere), in weather that resembled a foggy monsoon. All of a sudden, a helicopter drops out of a low hanging cloud, just a couple hundred feet off the ground ahead of me. It hovers there for a second, then starts flying over toward a field and lands. The rain was coming down in buckets and visibility was low.
So, I drive down a dirt road adjacent to the field where the copter landed. I debated running across the muddy field in my good shoes and clothes to make sure everyone in the copter is alright. I decided not to; but rather, wait in my car to see if they try to signal me for assistance. During my wait, I'm thinking....hmmm, that's the same model helicopter I've seen Donald Trump fly around in. Nah, it couldn't be "The Don", but it could be someone just as rich. How would I pitch these people? Ask if they're ok, then hand'em my card? Is blowing off an appointment, ruining my shoes and clothes worth it for a low percentage situation?
Well, I waited a couple of minutes, then left. (They were gone, on my return trip.)
Then, this afternoon, I'm driving down a city street, when I notice 2 cars ahead of me, a set of tires go flipping into the air. An elderly man driving an old Ford LTD smashed into a pick-up, flipping it over onto the LTD. No serious injuries. (Still not sure how it happened, since all I saw were the wheels flipping over.)
Yeah, it was a strange day...but I got the account!
