Default Guess what I found on the side of the road?

So I was driving home yesterday from work, dealing with more than usual traffic, and just the typical A-hole drivers which makes for a real awful commute. After I turned onto the back roads close to the house, I passed a Bud truck that was making deliveries (I assume) to the local establishments. As I came to the next turn in the road, I noticed something shiny in the ditch.

I pulled over immediately, ran over, and there it was... a full sixtel of Fordham Copperhead Ale.

Somehow, this sixtel keg of ale got tired of riding around in the back of the Bud truck, and hopped out. I now have him peacefully surrounded with other ales waiting to be put in the keggerator.

It could have been worse, it could have been a keg of Bud Light!

Wow. I guess I'm in the minority. All kidding aside, it would never even occur to me to keep such a thing if I knew who the proper owner was.

I just got a little more disillusioned with humanity. I thought the folks of HBT were better than that.

At least try and return the keg after you drink the beer.

You didn't take 270N last night, did you? I ended up taking 117 and other back roads and all I got was two old lady drivers going 10% below the speed limit, a construction that closed one lane temporarily, a train crossing the street, and lots of traffic once in Frederick. Yes, yesterday's traffic sucked. But I didn't get rewarded with free beer
