Thursday Thought

CARPOOL TUNNEL SYNDROME: a physical ailment characterized by hands frozen in gripping-the-steering-wheel position, headache, stressed shoulders, and erratic thought patterns due to incessant noise coming at the patient from both the car stereo and the little people in the backseat. This syndrome primarily affects women.

Symptoms usually begin to manifest around mid September, peaking around January, and declining in the latter parts of May. Symptoms disappear during June-August.

The only known treatment for carpool tunnel syndrome is an extended visit to a spa, which must include a one hour massage, manicure, pedicure, and beauty treatments. The beauty treatments are the only consolation when the driver checks the rearview mirror, which she finds she is doing entirely too much:

"I see you! Don't make me stop this car!"

Pin It!
