Potpourri 3708 "An Irishman Recommends Music"
So he came and he went. Cousin Jim from Ireland that is.
Today, he should be motoring somewhere towards southern Utah or Nevada.
On Monday he rented a car from Hertz.
He said to the Hertz salesman:
Jim: "And this car that you are renting me will get me to Las Vegas?"
Salesman: "Absolutely. But I wouldn't want to try it."
Jim: "Why's that?"
Salesman: "It doesn't have cruise control."
So for an extra $3.50 a day Cousin Jim upgraded to a car with cruise control.
As he was ready to leave the Hertz lot I said to Jim:
"Do you know how to use the cruise control on this car?"
He replied: "Of course... there's nothing to that?
I said: "Show me how then."
He couldn't find it.
So I went back into the Hertz office and the salesman came out and showed us
where the cruise control was. It was under the right hand side of the steering wheel
and there's a good chance Cousin Jim would never find it.
Before he left the Hertz man said:
"Remember you can bring it back empty and won't have to pay for gas."
Jim responded back:
"Well I don't intend to run around the Edmonton Airport until it's empty
and then bring it back!"
So then he was on his way. The main adjustment that he'll have to make is the fact that
they drive on the other side of the road in Ireland.
When Cousin Jim comes to Canada he sometimes forgets that the passenger
side is on the right and tries to get in the driver's seat of my SUV.
Having driven and rode in Ireland myself, there is definitely some challenge
to remembering the side you're supposed to be on.
Fortunately, Cousin Jim will be on the Interstate 5 all the way to Vegas
and back. You can't go wrong on that road.
By the way, before he left Cousin Jim recommended the following Video.
The group does concerts in Europe. They are called Salut Salon.
