The Story of the Sad and Lonely Lost Trailer in Amarillo
Yesterday morning started off like any other weekday morning. Way too early. We always joke about the worst thing about morning radio was that it was so early in the morning. Heck, if we could start it at like noon then we would be golden.
That is not the case. I tried to leave for work before five am like I do every morning. I had a station vehicle because I had an event that was close to my house the night before so I thought why drive extra when I can just head home.
I don't even know what made me look down my long and narrow driveway so early in the morning but I did. Oh, and I am glad that I did. Otherwise, I would have hit something that I did not expect to find in my driveway.
A Trailer. What is a trailer doing in my driveway? I don't own a trailer. I don't own a vehicle that has a hitch to attach a trailer. What is going on here?
I call my boss first. I know I couldn't maneuver the station van around the trailer to get out. I tried to move the trailer but I couldn't by myself. He lived nearby so I thought maybe he could lend me his big strong muscles.
So the next step and I didn't want to do it, was to wake up my daughter. Once she woke up and had her, "why is there a trailer in our driveway?" moment, she came outside with me.
It took both of us to move it into my front yard and out of my way. The problem is I still have a trailer in my yard. It's not mine. I need to find the owner. Oh, and what if it was stolen and left on my property?
I had to go there. Of course. It is a possibility. So I contacted my neighbor who is a police officer. Hopefully, he can run the plates. It may have been someone who innocently borrowed from someone and dropped it off at the wrong address. I have no idea.
Until then if this is your trailer let me know. I mean you will have to identify the plate number to claim it.
But go home trailer, you're drunk. Get out of my yard.
So uh.....Have you ever woken up to something weird in your front yard? Do tell.
