As a lorry driver stops for a red light, a pony-tailed blond in a bull-bar fronted SUV catches up.  She climbs out and descends to road level, runs up to his lorry, and knocks on the window. The man lowers the window, and she says,

"Hi, I’m Heather. I just thought you needed to know that and you are losing some of your load."

The driver ignores her and proceeds down the street.

   When the lorry stops for another red light, the girl catches up again.  She climbs down again, runs up and knocks on the driver’s window. Again, he lowers the window.  As if they’ve never spoken, the blond says brightly,

"Hi, my name is Heather, and you are losing some of your load!"

Shaking his head, the lorry driver ignores her again and continues down the street.

At the third red light, the same thing happens again.  All out of breath, the blond gets out of her car, runs up, and knocks on the lorry’s door.   The driver lowers the window.   Again she says,

"Hi, my name is Heather, and you are losing some of your load!"

 When the light turns green the driver revs up and races to the next light.

When he stops this time, he hurriedly gets out of the lorry, and runs back to the blond.  He knocks on her window, and as she lowers it, he says…

"Hi, my name is Kevin!

You may not have noticed that it’s winter.

And I’m the driver of this road-salting lorry!’
