Unsolicited Advice #1

“Better yet!  Build a 10 foot high tank trap monstrosity in the shape of your corporate logo!  Pay some starving bearded hipster artist to make it from barbed wire and pointed re-bar!  And then let it rust!  Give them the idea that they might contract aerosolized tetanus just by cutting too close!  That will surely keep them surly drivers from cutting unsightly ruts in the corner of your property! Except for those Swift drivers, but you shouldn’t allow them in here anyways.  People store food here, for criminy’s sake!”

– Unsolicited advice given to the gate guard at a cold storage warehouse I frequent a lot.  Seems that tired and stupid truck drivers are always tearing up the corner as they leave their lot.  I saw a poor sod trying to scrape the dirt from the road and reposition the granite boulder that some moron had run over with their trailer tires.  Unfortunately, my advice will probably not be heeded.

Too bad. It’s so rarely that I have a really good idea.
