Euro bumper fiasco

So I ordered a pre-painted Euro bumper and I ended up having to clear customs myself. I finally had a day off today and got everything taken care. Here are my low points.

1. Going from BPG to Chelsea (the freight company) was a pain in the ass. There were a ton of pot holes on my way there. At one point, I was driving on a fully cobbled stoned street!

2. I got stopped by a State Trooper at Sumner Tunnel on my way back. He told me I was driving a little too fast and asked me to tone it down. He gave me a verbal warning with no tickets. Thank you officer and I'll definitely drive slow.

Nah, I think Kev was just writing what he told the officer.
