Default The Speed Trap~Smile for the Birdie

Wife forwarded this to me and I got a chuckle.....

A man was driving when a traffic camera flashed. He thought his picture was taken for exceeding the speed limit, even though he knew he was not speeding.
Just to be sure, he went around the block and passed the same spot, driving even more slowly, but again the camera flashed.
He thought this was quite funny, so he slowed down even further as he drove past the area, but the traffic camera flashed yet again.
He tried a fourth time with the same result.
The fifth time he was laughing when the camera flashed as he rolled past at a snail'* pace.

Two weeks later, he got five traffic fine letters in the mail for driving without a seat belt.

Mrs V loves anything that makes men look like,..... as she says, Men. She got quite the haha out of it.

Her car'* A/C quit working and I thought Cool!, I get to get out my old A/C recharging setup and look manly an informed. A quick trip to town and I came back with 2 bottles of refrigerant. Screwed a bottle in. Hooked up all the gauges under her watchful eye and guess what? Gauges say,....... full charge. Turns out after digging out the owners manual, looking over the fuses, and actually looking down into where the condenser pump is..... the electric clutch isn't engaged. I'm not going to give her to privelage of laughing at me. I ask her to get me a soda, slip a mini fuse of of the GXP glovebox and replace the burnt one. As she comes back outside, It'* a purring, the cold air is blasting out the vents, and I'm unscrewing the lines and telling her "ALL DONE HON!!!"
Now I got an new bottle with the seal broken and screwd into the setup/ Guess tomorrow it'* make the rounds up the drive and see if anybody needs a A/C charge.
