A young over-the-road truck driver pulls up in a remote town in the middle of nowhere and walks into a seedy old roadhouse. He sits at the counter and notices an old trucker with his arms folded, staring blankly at a full bowl of meaty, aromatic chili.
After a few minutes of just watching the old man staring at the chili, the young trucker bravely asks the old bloke, "If you ain't gonna eat that, mind if I do?"
The older trucker slowly turns his head toward the young kid, smiles, and politely says, "Sure, you go ahead."
Eagerly, the young man reaches over and slides the bowl over to his place and starts spooning it in with delight. He gets almost down to the bottom and notices a dead mouse in the chili.
The sight was surprising, and a shock, and he immediately barfs up the chili back into the bowl.
And the old trucker quietly says, "Yep, that's as far as I got, too."
