I was out walking the dogs recently and came upon this truck (above). Something about the writing on the back caught my eye and I hurried the dogs along so I could read what it said, which was ‘LOADED WITH POLITICAL PROMISES’. I was really curious about what business this was with that particular message on the back, so stopped to take a picture, and then hurried more because they started driving away from me. They would have to turn right or left at the stop sign and I thought I might not be able to see the name of the business, and the whole thing would be a mystery forever. More about that in a minute…
One of the tricks I learned about iPhone photography was that you can take a picture using the iPhone earbuds that have a built-in off-on switch. I had just heard about this and had been attempting to do some stealth street photography in Tarpon Springs the day I spotted this next truck. On the way home I had the phone mounted to the windshield when I was stopped at a traffic light behind this guy. Everything about the messages this truck was sending with their signage cracked me up, so I clicked the earbuds that were still attached, and I got this picture. If I hadn’t been torturing myself over kitchen remodel ideas for years I might not have had the same reaction to the messages they are sending. But they are advertising that you may have paid through the nose for your Wolf, or Sub Zero appliance, but it’s gonna break! And when the inevitable happens you should call them because they are High End Service? Really, and they come out in their Mercedes truck? Would you call that number? That’s like saying please fix my fancy, expensive, high end appliance, and be sure to charge me BIG bucks while you are at it. Hilarious!
And lastly we have this truck, which I spotted on my way back to work at lunch time one day. Who wouldn’t want a plumber who smells good? It’s a no brainer. That’s all I have to say about that.
And back to the first picture, and the message ‘loaded with political promises’. The truck got to the corner and took a right, and emblazoned on the side, in big enough letters that even I could see it, was White’s Septic Services! Of course, what else would it be?
