Is there a story or event from high school that never got told? Time to tell it?

I drove my ''tiny''1942 Crosley convertible pickup to school one day to find it on top of the septic tank raised foundation behind the school gym after my last class. I was a little upset and the little vehicle was picked up and removed from the elevated septic tank area and placed back on the parking lot by the wise guys who placed it there,so I could drive home. I drove a 1955 chevrolet to school from then on , so that wouldn't happen again ...Lol

What did you do right after high school?

Uncle Sam and the Navy Needed me.. I was a aircraft mechanic for 6 years with the Navy durning the Vietnam War, then went on to join the JEA in the Sub-Station Engineeering Dept. for 2 years before joining the Jacksonville Sheriff Office where I served for another 23 years before retiring from the city.
