I am not the only person who has a problem with Unnecessary Trucks. I am also not the youngest, grouchiest, most knowledgeable or most vocal. No, that title must go to the 10-year-old son of a former Booth Bro.
Brendan, who worked as a product specialist for Toyota, Chrysler and Ford, reports the following:
"The other day, my 10-year-old son, who could say 'Duesenberg' and 'Bugatti Veyron' at age 2, was riding with me when some tool cut me off in a big pick-up. From the backseat, the voice of youthful wisdom yelled out, 'Hey, Mr. Unnecessary Truck, pay attention.'
Apparently, he reads your columns, too, or listens to me when I drive! Either way, your work is spreading to yet another generation!"
Here is why this kid is awesome:
A) He obviously has excellent taste in vehicles, judging from his early vocabulary skills.
B) He is already yelling at douchebags on the highway.
C) He reads my blog.
Brendan, your kid is welcome in my display any time. As long as he doesn't lick any door handles.
