    They grow in the strangest places.

    I think there is a tree in the middle of the road somewhere in Lake Tahoe, CA.

    It takes all kinds.
    I once wrote an estimate on a car where a woman lost control, drove across a sidewalk, down an embankment and struck a streetlight pole. (she actually knocked down the 30ft pole.)
    Her husband told me he planned to sue the town. He blamed them for his wife’s accident, saying the town had placed the streetlight too close to the road.

    They appear in the worst places on golf courses, too. Usually between my ball and the hole.

    That’s why all golfers of the appropriate skill levels should carry an axe in their bags.

    My mom once backed her car out of our driveway, across the back lawn, and knocked down my clothes line. “Why did you put it so close to the corner?” Ten feet on either side.

    There was a tree in the middle of the road in Tahoe City but it died years ago so it was cut down and a large portion of it was turned into a sculpture. It is across the street from Rosies Cafe…

    They shouldn’t be putting those “Deer Crossing” signs near busy highways either.

    I worked for a city and one time we had a guy that was working on the weekends, come back into our service yard and plowed right into one of the light poles. It was all on video tape and it looked like he was grabbing something and wasn’t paying attention. It was kind of funny because in this big empty lot, he hit one of two poles.

    Either that or the state could require all deer to carry liability insurance.

    Having been a Highway patrolman for over 30 years. Actually heard that excuse.
    Why did you hit the pedestrian?
    He was in the road and would not get out of my way.
    (According to witnesses the pedestrian was running back forth trying to dodge the car as it approached. Luckily no serious injury)
    How did you hit that tree?
    Officer the damn thing jump right out in front of me. (True statement)
    (Tree was 20 feet off roadway.)
    Those moving trees are a problem I told him.
    Now stand here hold one leg up and count to 30

    Actual accident report: “Last night coming home I drove to the wrong address and collided with a tree I don’t have.”
    .
    My favorite is still the woman who left the road, went down a 45-degree embankment, scraped through three close-growing trees and ended up upside-down in the rapids just past: “Can’t I just back out?”
