Years ago, the owner of Boomer’s Drive-In got a phone call telling him there was a fire at Boomers. Assuming the worst he raced to the restaurant and when he arrived he found the place surrounded with a whole lot of fire trucks and even more firemen. “That’s not a good sign,” he thought to himself. He parked nearby and waded through all the equipment and personnel only to discover a little fan motor in the back was simply creating a lot of smoke.
Relieved, he asked one of the fireman why they dispatched so much equipment and men. The answer was simply, “We would catch so much hell from everyone in this town if Boomers burned down.”
Good to know.
