The Squeakmobile

August 12th, 2011 | Posted by Alison Spath in Morning Craziness

I slept with my camera on the bedside table last night, ready to capture my daily wake up at the ass crack of dawn. 

(It came at 4:32 yesterday!)

When I heard the squeakmobile coming down the street this morning, it got all lights, camera, ACTION! up in here.  Now I can show you exactly what I’m talking about.

You can even hear the damn cat meowing at me at the end there.

I think the cat and the car are in cahoots to keep me awake.


As I see it, my options are:

a.) start closing the window at night (too hot!)

b.) move the bed away from the window (not feng shui! ok I just made that up.)

c.) convince my neighbors to cancel their newspaper delivery and instead get their news from an online source (a new site? a new site!)

Mama’s Dirt!  I could totally start reporting the news!

Local Woman Throws Chocolate Banana Wendy’s-like Frosty at Squeaky SUV –  News at 6.

oooo I can’t wait to hear about that one.

I actually have a “real post” (I use that term loosely) to put up later today, but this one couldn’t wait.  Right now I’ve got to go feed the cat. Then I might as well go for a bike ride cause I’m up. And now I’m suddenly in the mood for a chocolate banana frosty.

    yet another reason I’m glad I live in the sticks. Of course, sometimes that means we get to listen to neighbors going up and down the shared dirt driveway on motocross bikes…or having some target practice before hunting season begins…but nothing that annoying, that early in the morning! have you thought of complaining to the newspaper…? or setting up a tripwire in the middle of the street, and ambushing them with a hose hooked up to a 55 gallon drum of WD40?

    I suggest public shaming: create a “Stop the Daily Planet Squeakmobile” Facebook group and get all your neighbors to join.

    or option D: Chuck a can of oil at the driver in hopes that he might go and fix all those sqeaky joints.

    I HAVE NEVER heard a car do that!

    you poor thing, but thanks thanks thanks for the laugh~

    enjoy your ride!

  • All fabulous ideas! Trip wires, public shaming, a suggestive can of oil… the possibilities are endless!

    I actually never considered calling the newspaper to bring this to their attention… hmmm.

    I would totally subscribe to “Mama’s Dirt” AND you have to feature an advice column, too. You’d be great at it.

    That would drive me batty!
