Forest Gump said, “Stupid is as stupid does.”
I wonder if the writers of the movie were watching when I got stuck on the shore of the Cowlitz River, left to get a tow, and discovered it was a tidal river.
Being new to the Kelso/Longview, Washington, area in the early 1970s and being from the mid-west, I had no idea.
The tow truck driver didn’t charge me. He said something like, “The laugh I got and the stories I can tell are worth far more than my fee.”
So, don’t do river stupid.
There are still more of my don’t do stupid stories. As before, This → link tells where I got the idea.
