I learned this weekend that you can take the top off of a U-Haul in one fell swoop. Apparently all you have to do is drive through an under pass at about 20 miles an hour. If it is the right height it will pop the top right off. The only good thing about it was that I wasn't driving it. My sister was.

We were helping her move this weekend, and she was coming to meet us. My mom got a call on her phone, and it was my sister saying that she was stuck. What she really meant to say, was that the top of the U-Haul was gone. The worst part was, is that it was a U-Haul that she borrowed from a friend, and he failed to insure it. He was really upset.

Live and learn.
