Coming through! Get off the tracks!
I don’t know what this means, but I thought I’d dash off a few sentences about it. At work, I sit by a window that’s next to a fairly busy intersection. Every few days for the past few weeks, this semi-truck drives by the building through the intersection. Except, for some reason, he always sounds his horn — very briefly, maybe a quarter of a second — as he approaches.
The reason I find this strange is that his horn sounds exactly like the horn on most trains (as opposed to the horn on most semis). So I hear the horn, I instinctively look to my left out the window through the blinds, and I see the truck pass by. Looks like the kind of semi-trailer that would haul dirt or something.
Maybe deep down I’m expecting one day I’ll see a train.
He’s been through twice today. Why does he do this? Is there some new law that requires semi drivers to use their horn as a warning near intersections?
You know, like with trains?
Truck drivers: It do what it do.
