“Sorry, honey. I’d let you ride in front, but the dog gets jealous.”

It’s not a great picture, so you may not be able to tell, but that is, indeed, an actual human being — a woman of, as they say, a certain age — standing up in the back of a moving pickup truck. This is the sort of thing you see occasionally, if the world has gone insane.

    I don’t see why they couldn’t strap her to the trailer. At least she could have a better view of where she’s goin.

  2. Standing up? As someone who has ridden many miles in the back of a pickup, I would have guessed she was kneeling. Unfortunately, that cover is preventing her from fully enjoying the pickup bed airflow experience, too.

    Uhm, yeah, I’ve ridden in the back of a pickup truck plenty of times. Never in the city, but still… it doesn’t seem that unusual to me.

    As a side note, I used to really like Taco Casa. We don’t have them in Montgomery.

  4. You rode standing up (again, it’s not a clear picture, but she was standing up) and looking plaintively out of the back of the truck?

    She’s got to be sitting on something… She’d be up much higher than that if she were standing. Or maybe she’s kneeling, I dunno.

  6. I usually rode sitting on the wheel well, but with that bed cover it’s impossible for the subject of your photo to do that. The cover is probably why she’s looking (plaintively or not) out the back — no view anywhere else.

  7. Again, she’s standing up. You can’t tell by the photograph (which again, is not very good, because it was taken by me with my cellphone) but she’s really close to the back of the truck.
