B4 MONDAY SEPTEMBER 16,2002 • THE HAYS DAILY NEWS Duane "Cash" Holze www.ClassifiedGuys.com Todd "Carry" Holze THE CLASSIFIED GUYS Coffee Brake After advertising for a ride-share in the classifieds, I started commuting to work with an amusing gentleman who worked as a car mechanic. One day on our way to work, my car started making all sorts of noises until it finally let out a big bang. Just then the engine died and we coasted to the side of the road. After trying to start it several times, I turned to my commuting partner and asked, "So, Mr. Mechanic, what do you think happened?" With a big smile he replied, "I'd love to help you out, but I don't start work until 8 o'clock." (Thanks to Tommy J., Ne\v Hampshire) Passive Restraint Since my company gives cash incentives for people who commute to work, I found a gentleman to ride-share with from the classifieds. Every day we would meet in the commuter parking lot and take turns driving into the city. The first few times I drove, I noticed that whenever I approached a stop sign, he would press his foot against the floor like he was looking for the brake. If I took a turn, he would reach up and grab the handle above the door. Finally one day I asked him, "Does my driving bother you?" "Not at all," he explained. "It's a force of habit. Normally when I'm in the passenger seat, my wife is driving." (Thanks to Kenneth P., Maryland) Tip of the Week Our friend Jerry used to get up at the crack of dawn every morning and commute almost two hours to his job. After dodging potholes, waiting at tollbooths and avoiding radar traps, he would arrive to work completely stressed, before even reaching his desk. However, if he took a few minutes to glance at the commuter section of the classifieds, he would have found a ride-share partner and had time to relax, listen to music or even read a book. In fact, many studies have shown that people who share a ride to work are more productive than those who commute alone. So finally, Jerry found a ride to work. Now he's reading the classifieds looking for a less stressful job. RIDE-SHARE NEEDED: From Branford to Westchester. I can ride with you or "Yugo" with me. Call Mary. From the Guys Cash: With laptop computers and cell phones, commuting is no longer just about driving in the car. Many people telecommute from home, the car or even while traveling, making the office so portable that you can be reached almost anywhere. Carry: I know what you mean. Last week I was in an inconvenient location when I received a call on my cell phone that was actually for you. Fortunately I found a place to write down the message so I could give it to you the next day. Cash: I appreciated that, but did you have to give me the message on toilet paper? Do you have a funny or successful story? Send your stories, questions or humorous classified ads to comments@ClassifiedGuys.com or Classified Guys, P.O. Box 8246, New Fairfield, CT06812.
