What a Sweet Day This Was...Awesome Story

I work construction, so I'm outside everyday... I see stuff fall off of cars and trucks all day. Well, today I was working near a walmart, and we were unloading a truck with the crane. Anyways, I'm taking a water break, and I look over to the walmart parking lot to see some car with boxes on the roof. The guy pulled up to the light, and I yell to my boss about the guy with the boxes on the roof. I'm looking closer and they were speakers, brand new, still in plastic, just sitting there. My boss and I are trying to get the dudes attention as he drove by, but he just flicked us the bird as his $150 worth of speakers roll off his car and he keeps going. My boss runs over and brings them back smiling... boxes are a bit beat up, but nothing broken... Pioneer 6.5 and 6x9 three ways.

My luck couldn't have been better, I needed door speakers, but couldn't afford them, and there they were riding on some dudes car....

We put them aside thinking the guy would be back cause he turned into a neighborhood a couple blocks down, but he never showed, oh well, his loss my gain. The boss kept the 6x9s, and i took the 6.5s. Just finished the install and they sound great!

Just wanted to let you know.
