What’s in Your Glove Box?
It used to be that people kept their driving gloves in the glove box of their car, which is how it got its name. The only gloves that are in my glove box are winter gloves that I forgot were still in there. Many years ago one of my friends, a fellow radio friend, told me what he kept in his glove box and made me wonder if I need to get new friends.
My friend, we’ll call him Jim, told me that he kept radio station bumper stickers in the glove box, around 98 of them or so. When I asked him why he did that, I thought he’d tell me it was so that he could hand them out to people if they recognized him when he was out around town. That wasn’t it at all.
Jim told me that he packed his glove box full of bumper stickers so that whenever he got pulled over (he had a lead food) and had to reach into the glove box for his registration, the stickers would fall out.
When the police officer asked why he had so many radio station bumper stickers in his glove box, Jim would tell him/her that he worked at the radio station and then offer one.
According to Jim, the police officer would more often than not, tell him to have a nice day and send him on his way. Obviously, this was before the days of dash and body cameras because I don’t think that would work these days.
I keep my registration, a 2013 Sonic coupon in my glove box along with Sun-In.The Sun-In isn't mine, it's for a friend (Uh-Huh.)
How about you, What's inside your glove box?
