So I was bebopping along on the freeway taking my sweet time in the slow lane when out of the corner of my eye I spot what appeared to be a Ridgid 18V tool. Owning my share of Ridgid cordless tools, I felt obligated to stop and add it to my collection. I did not spot it soon enough to safely stop, but I did turn around and backtrack to the area I spotted it. When I got back, I did not initially see the cordless tool, but now I spotted the impact gun and 3/8" drill. I found the cordless drill a second later and was disapointed to see it did not survive the fall out of somebodys truck. So now what? The chances of the owner who lost this stuff knowing where to backtrack and find his broken tools are slim to none, and soon Cal-Trans or the CHP would have stopped and picked this crap up and tossed it in the garbage (road hazzard) What is the right thing to do here? Go back and put up a sign that caltrans will take down the minute they see it? (they don't like signs on their property). Should I have left the stuff on the side of the road on the slim chance the guy backtracks, instead of assuming the stuff was stolen at Home Depot? Enjoy my broken find?
No announcement yet.
It really did fall off the truck, I swear! The road fairy strikes again.
