My wife had one of those heavy assed portable TV stands that would never be repaired again. She insisted on keeping it through three or four moves. One move I had deliberately left it till last hoping to get away with leaving it behind. No such luck and I was hauling just it by itself in the back of my older pick-up truck when a cop hauled me over. "Just curious why you are hauling that nice TV this time of evening."
"That isn't a TV. It is just the stand we have been using for our portable TV for the last ten years. Like all the rest of these things, it doesn't work!" "We are moving and I tried to leave it behind. The wife insists on keeping it, why I am hauling it last and all by itself." The cop laughed and left.
