Stupid is as stupid does.

This picture is real - not doctored in anyway - and was taken in the last few weeks in Waldorf, Maryland, by a transportation supervisor for a company that delivers building materials for 84 Lumber.

When he saw the Volkswagen Jetta with Florida plates in the parking lot of IHOP, he went and bought a camera to take pictures. The car is still running as you can see by the exhaust. A woman is either asleep or otherwise out in the front seat passenger side. The guy driving the car was over jogging up and down on Rt. 925 in the background.

Witnesses said the car's occupants physical state was OTHER than normal and the police just shook their heads in amazement. The driver finally came back after the police arrived and decided to cut the twine around the load. The police told him to get back until it was taken off. The materials were loaded at a nearby Home Depot (7.4 miles from the IHOP). The HD store manager said they had the customer sign a waiver! (No kidding!)

The load consists of 2 X 4s, 4 X 4s, and OSB sheets. In the back seat are 10 80-pound bags of concrete. The load is estimated at over 3,000 pounds. Both back tires are trashed. The back shocks were driven up through the floorboard. The car is a VW Jetta with FL plates and the guy said he was headed for Annapolis.

Who would be so stupid as to put that much lumber and that much cement in that little dinky car?! Everybody talk about this in your blogs, we must do something to prevent idiots from making this mistake several more times...
