Pop Off, Pop On [Hey, You!]

Illustration by Bob Aul

You are the Long Beach bus driver who knocked the cover off my side-view mirror the other day. A witness managed to write down your bus number and the time of the incident on the back of a receipt from a restaurant, in front of which I had parked. Fortunately, the geniuses at Toyota foresaw the possibility of a side swipe such as yours occurring, so they designed the case to pop off without taking the mirror with it. I popped that sucker back on, and except for a small scrape on the casing, all’s well. I could have taken you to the tiles over your reckless driving, but that is a waste of time for a minor scratch. Don’t do it again, though!
