Driving home from Target I was behind a monstrous shiny black pickup truck. He was going about 25 in a 40 mile zone. I had plenty of time to check out his truck. It was a Cadillac Escalade pickup. A luxury pickup truck. If that don’t beat all.
It’s too pretty for haulin’ lumber. You sure as shoot can’t load up the back with a 1/2 ton of manure. I doubt you’d want the dogs riding in the back scratching the bed with their nails. It has no gun rack. What’s the purpose?
I’m not knocking anybody having a Cadillac, mind you. In fact, one of my neighbors tools around in a big old white Escalade (gettin’ gallons to the mile vs miles to the gallon) but that’s his choice. And it’s an SUV, not a pickup. I didn’t even know Cadillac made pickups.
Again, I’m back to my original question….why?
I finally passed him and took a good long look at the whole shebang and it was mighty fancy. But I wouldn’t want to get caught driving that truck in someplace like Oklahoma or Texas or even here in parts of Ohio where they take their pickups pretty seriously. Designer pickup – what a waste of material and ridiculous show of wealth. Unless he’s living in it…that would change everything…but I didn’t see a Dish antenna anywhere and there were no empty pot pie pans flyin’ outta the bed either.
I don’t get it…sigh…
