Hit any Matresses lately?

This driver ran over a mattress and decided to just keep going...what could possibly happen !!!

The ensuing jumbled mass finally whipped around enough to put a tear in the gas tank.

The subsequent lack of fuel is what finally brought this vehicle to its knees.

After hitting the mattress, it had managed to drive 30 more miles with a 60 pound tangle of stuff wrapped around the driveshaft.

The driver complained that the vehicle had a "sort of a shimmy" when driving at high speeds.

This is what the dealership found...

Never trust a dealership where they have the mechanics blindfolded with electrical tape.


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

Methinks 'tis a repost? Gerkebi had the winning comment from last time, something about only driving over Select Comfort mattresses.
