He rolled his window down and asked if I was a cop, I said no and then he said, "Well, I'm going to call the cops and tell them that you are photographing the inside of peoples' cars."

Right at that moment I got a call from a friend and proceeded to ignore this country bumpkin. He waited about 30 seconds and drove away. Good thing my buddy called or else I would have pointed and laughed uncontrollably at him. Who knows what kind of wacko he could have turned out to be had I done that.

10 minutes later I got my shot and never saw him again.
I try to act crazier than the person I'm dealing with. Nobody wants to mess with a crazy person.
