So we stop by the HEB gas station this afternoon to fill up one of the trucks and as I'm pumping gas, I notice the truck in the lane next to mine has a deer in the back seat.
I stepped from my side of the pump to the other side and of course, startled the older gentleman pumping his gas. I said, "Gee, I hope the deer doesn't wake up while you're driving." This was my light, good natured approach to gain his trust so I could ask him if I might take a picture of the decedent in his truck. He gave me a strange look and said, "What?"
"The deer. The deer in the back seat? I hope he doesn't wake up, you know, like Tommy Boy?" The man just looked at me as if he had no idea on earth there was a huge freakin' deer pressing its nose against the window of his truck. Apparently my friendly banter was not winning a new friend with something interesting he'd be willing to share with fellow travelers in a game of gas station show & tell.
"It's a movie about these guys in a car and they have a deer in the back seat, but then the deer wakes up and it wreaks havoc in the car." With this, the man just shrugged his shoulders and climbed back into the truck as his gas continued to pump.
