What to do when you get a flat tire... Texas style
An East Texas good ol' boy had a flat tire, pulled
off on the side of the road, and proceeded to put a
bouquet of flowers in front of his pickup truck and
one behind it. Then he just stood back and waited.
A passerby from the city studied the scene as he
drove by and was so curious he turned around
and went back. He asked the fellow what the
problem was. The fellow replied, "Flat tire."
In response the passerby asked, "But, what's with
the flowers?" The man responded, "When ya' break
down they tell ya' to put flares in the front and flares
in the back, I ain't never understood it neither.
I dunno how much of an accent folks have in Texas but I've heard some folks who talk like this, Bless their lil pea pickin hearts : )
