I was out moving trucks around town all day. And the boss said she might have a truck coming out of Salt Lake City in a few days. Woo!
When I was on the highway I passed a Texas Correctional transport bus. They look like regular school buses, but they're an off-white colour. The windows are heavily tinted and covered with a thick metal grate so the inmates can't be seen from the outside. Anyhoo, right after I passed it, the damn thing went to pass me again. Except instead of going around me it stayed right next to my vehicle. I never make eye contact with strangers on the highway, so I tried to ignore them. I finally glanced over and saw one of the guards standing in the stairwell staring at me. Ewww. I couldn't see any faces in the bus windows because of the tint and the grate, but I knew they were there. How frigging creepy. After about a minute of this I slowed way down so they would finish passing me. They slowed down, too. I finally reached into my backpack and pulled out my camera. I turned it on and pointed it right at the guard in the stairwell. He did an about-face and the bus took off faster than I've ever seen a large vehicle move. Blech!!!

Ha! As delightful as that sounds I take my concealed handgun license very seriously. I would never pull my .45 on anyone who was just annoying me. Besides, it's illegal to carry a firearm in a commercial vehicle. Stupid Texas laws. :)

no, the camera is much funnier! a .45 would have just made him mad. i'm sure the camera made him pee in his favorite little stairwell!

Well Hell, It seems as though we are all forgetting that cops are above the law and some think they even surpass "GOD"

Don't judge all of us TDCJ officers by the stupidity of a few. Granted, some bosses really suck, but there are some very good ones also.
