Border crossings !!!!
« on: April 15, 2007, 05:58:02 PM »
 
    Ti'was 22 years ago , happenned on Easter week-end . I was gonna be a bran-spankin-new-dad in about a month or so . We where havin a good time, nice weather , the girls ( wify and SIL ) out takin in da sun yappin about what ever wimine yap about  ;D
  Da wify gets a craven ...  ::) for some orange flavored pop-sickles , me , da brave one , is sent out on da mission of finding said pop-sickles . I looked into every store there was that was opened this Easter sunday ... but ya think that they would of had a pop-sickle , one orange pop-sickle  for me to buy and bring home da prise for the cravin very much pregnant wify ... no , none .
   Well , being sent on a mission ya got to look at all available options .. right .  :P
 Border is real close , North Troy is a nice little town in north Vermont , so off I go headed for the border. Get to the man , Where are you from son ...dat one was easy, ;D What will you be doing in Da USofA?? this is when I found out that from that day on , I would only ever be going to get gas.... Dont ever , here I must stress the word ever , tell da border patrol dat your going to get an orange pop-sickle . Trust me .. he aint gonna beleive you .... It took 2 hours at that border crossing to explane to this guy that I was truly going to get a dam pop-sickle for my very  very pregnant wife , and that by now it would not matter  cause her craving would be long gone and that I would just as well turn around and go home. 
  He , after looking into my car from the front bumper to the rear bumper .. and what was in between da two , told me where the store was and have a nice day ...  ::) 
  I did finally get the orange flavored pop-sickle and I sure did not tell the border officer coming back into Canada that I had bought a pop-sickle ...  Gas , tis all I got ..

Marcel, I've posted these stories before, so I won't go into all the details, but I agree with you 100%! ;D
NEVER tell the border agent the real reason you are crossing if it is anything other then a vacation.
Trying to explain the reason why you are crossing at 12 am (or whatever it was) is to try and buy a fishing license, just takes forever and they truly belive you are NUTS.
Or trying to explain to the agent searching your veicle why you have a live black bird in a paper sack behind your seat.
I think the only reason they let me through was because they thought I was too crazy to hurt anyone. :D :D :D

No wonder there isn't as many black birds this spring. Furby is bird napping.  :o But, of course it could have something to do with the snow. No, not Furby's bird napping caper.  :D :D ;D
