Famous Last Words: “C’mon, I’ll Run Front Door”

I drive a truck for a living. I was driving through Ohio, the worst state for troopers and speeding. A friend was in his truck with a new Passport. I told him about my V1 and he just laughed. He said I wasted $406.

“Let’s put them to the test,” I said. We had been driving maybe 30 minutes when V1 picked up a weak signal. He said it wasn’t anything because his Passport didn’t go off. But I knew better. We were coming up on a curve. By now both detectors are going crazy. Here comes a cruiser. After it passes, V1 tells me that wasn’t the one; I’m still getting a signal from ahead. I tell my buddy, but he just laughs and says, “C’mon, I’ll run the front door.” He speeds up. I stay at 55. As we round another curve, there sits a trooper, radar on. He pulls out and stops my buddy. I radio that I’ll wait at the Flying J. He shows up mad as hell. It cost him $485, $185 for the ticket and $300 for the Passport he threw down and shattered in the parking lot.

After a lot if expletives, I gave him your number. He ordered one and told me a few weeks later, “Best thing been invented since light bread.” I have left home and gone 50 miles, then turned around and went back because I forgot to put my V1 in my bag. Better than American Express. Thanks.
