    So I'm driving home the other night, and I get two vehicles behind this pickup moving extremely slow. It keeps inching closer to the side, then the wheels go off the pavement and the pickup goes down a short embankment and into a ditch. The truck in front of me pulls over, and so do I, to see if this person needs help. When I get out, the driver of the truck in the ditch is rocking the accelerator to try to get out. The other guy is standing on the side of the road asking if he needs help. Guy says no. I asked what happened, and he said he'd hit a deer -- the windshield was shattered -- and blown a tire. I walked around to the other side of the truck, the low side, and there are no tires on it. Just rims with ropes tied around them. Ropes? Really weird. Anyway, a couple of cars go by, and the guy starts asking if one of us can give him a ride home. He gets out of his truck and pulls out a cooler. He's either in his boxer shorts or some really short gym shorts, and he's in socks, no shoes. Then a sheriff's deputy rolls by, sees what's going on and turns around. While the deputy is doing this, the man tries to hand me the cooler and says, "I don't guess this belongs to you, does it?" Smells like Billy Joel's microphone, so I tell him sorry, but I don't think so. The cops get out, talk to me and the other guy, then send us on our way. I'm sure he was arrested for DUI.

    On one level I feel sorry for the guy. DUIs are ugly business. On another, though, I'm just glad he didn't kill anyone. Or at least, I hope he didn't.

    Nothing new here, just a friendly message to reinforce the designated driver practice.

    Ropes on his rims instead of tires?
