Leave it to the ghouls here in Seattle. I have to say this story made me snort a little. Check out what Bryan Styme had to say about buckling up a skeleton to ride shotgun so he would be able to dive in the HVO lane on I-5 in Seattle during his commute:
“It’s a heck of a commute,” says the Edgewood man about his commute to Lynnwood. He grew frustrated at watching people in the HOV lane pass him over and over again.
“Since my commute was so bad, I started thinking,” says Stime, “Blow up doll, Mannequin?”
He took home a skeleton in a sweatshirt, and the rest was history.
“I had to see if it could be my carpool buddy,” says Stime, who admits using it up until he was pulled over December 20th for aggressive driving.
The Washington State Patrol said Stime's silver Mazda was going 82 mph on northbound I-5 near S. 272nd Street during the morning commute on Dec. 20. Stime was allegedly making unsafe lane changes, including driving in the HOV lane.
When troopers stopped the driver, they found the fake passenger wearing a seat belt.
The trooper said, “Are you kidding me? No officer, I’m not kidding,” said Stime. “He pretty much told me congratulations, you’re gonna get your picture taken.”
All I can say is that Stime is lucky he wasn't pulled over by the Seattle Police Department. They're known for their collective lack of a sense of humor.
