Overheard in the Lounge Car

Two conductors are burning up the lines here in the club car. They're trying to roust an engineer (repair guy) to get a repair done when we get to Savannah station.

Conductor 1: "What exactly is wrong?"
Conductor 2: "We hit a buzzard coming out of Jesup."
C1: "A buzzer? What the hell is a buzzer? Is that code for something?"
C2: "A BUZZARD. A big-ass vulture. It hit the windshield and tore the wiper off."
C1: "Oh. Well, what's the big deal?"
C2: "Its gonna rain all night- need that wiper to see the tracks in front of us."
C1: "Yeah, I guess that's a good idea."

Yeah- y'think so, Sparky?
