Better Than Uber

Has anyone else ever been at a far-off bar, seen a forum member, and been offered a free ride back for free to their apt/residence?

You get to appreciate things like the trip over the bridge, etc.

You also get to contemplate things like why one handle faces upward and the other faces downward.

The variance ... Is The guy in the bar picked up a hot chick and offered her a ride home ... She accepted but felt a little guilty about sharing a ride over to the bar with her slightly shorter and rounder 'friend' and leaving without them. Being the gentlemen I am I agreed to take the friend back to the city ... This is how josh ended up in the back of my truck.

you are applying logic to British workmanship ... it doesn't apply at any other point on the vehicle ... and i don't think the handles are an exception!
