Cigar Hell

So I'm cruisin along on the Garden State Parkway Tuesday night when traffic comes to a stand still. Now I'm like pissed because I have to go to the bathroom and I'm still almost an hour from school. Nevertheless, I think to myself, "Hey, I just got that WOAM and 858 SG from the shop today. Maybe I'll smoke that to take my mind off my bladder!" So I dig through my bag and pull out the 858. Then I reach over to my jacket and grab my cutter. I even reached into the back and grabbed a bottle of water out of the case I was bringing back. I'm now all set to go when I realize my lighter is missing! Worse yet, the tabbocconist offered me matches and I refused. So now I have to sit in traffic for another hour with a delicious cigar I can't smoke sitting right in front of me. Pure torture!

I considered getting out and walking around looking for a light because yes, it was a sungrown. However, anyone who's ever driven in NJ knows you don't get out of the car for any circumstances. If theres 18 inches to move up in standstill traffic then you take your life in your hands doing something like that.

I didn't even think about the lighter in my car. I might not acutally have one though.

Saw some 858 SGs today, but for $8.50 (rip off). There are rumors of a spot in Central NJ that will breaking out some other goodies.

First off, let's get back to the 858 sungrown. How much did you pay in a shop for it and can you buy up the rest of the supply for me if it was at MSRP?

Ok, now to your original post. I would have jumped out of the car and grabbed two sticks to rub together if I had to. Would have been back to caveman days for me.

858 SG's in a shop. I'll be damned!!

They were 8 bucks too. I gladly paid it but there was a 1 per customer per day limit.

Funny enough, I thought about rubbing sticks together but came to my senses soon after

Yes i feel your pain.....I have had that happen more than once....And if you get out of the car in Atlanta you are just as likely to get shot or run over as you are to find a lighter...And that is if somebody will roll their window down for you and not mace your ass............Sucks I know....
