Mirror + Truck = Many Smaller Mirrors

Last Friday a Red Route lost its passenger-side mirror on the Burlington bridge. I was driving interdorm, leaving Slater, when I heard the incident being reported over the radio. In the dispatcher’s response she said that the backup would be sent to retrieve the mirror, “… and hopefully it’s still intact.” Not five seconds after that I saw a guy in a big pickup truck run over the mirror at full speed, as though he were actually trying to destroy it. There was no evasive maneuver and no sign of hesitation. He just full-on obliterated it on purpose. I laughed all the way to the Comm. Center. The comedic timing could not have been any better.
