I was telling the story of the cones to an other driver and he reminded me about the time a couple of years ago when he came into contact with a hotdog stand in Fleet Walk. This was a big mobile hot dog stand and Bob had hit it with his bus and hadn't realized and drove on. The hot dog man had got his number and when Bob came back 25 mins later, hot dog man and police were waiting for him.
During the exchange in which Bob admitted hiting the hot dog stand the hot dog man stated the his wife,who was pregnant had been in the van at the time. Bob at once said," I hope you're not trying to blame me for that as well."
There were no reports of Bob getting beaten to a pulp for that remark, but he may well have been.
