So I had to go to Omaha to pick up my company car. The company does not let us smoke in the car, so I grab a smoke when I stop. As I was driving across Iowa I was getting a little stir crazy. After 200 miles of driving in a straight line I was starting to pray for a curve in the road. I decided to pull over for a smoke. I pulled into a rest area. A 1 porta-potty, completely deserted rest area. It was 4* out. I got out and lit up a smoke while I cleaned some chunks of ice off of the car. I was a couple of minutes into my smoke when an Iowa State trooper rolls up in an SUV and lights me up. He rolls down his window and asks me what I am doing. I said I am cleaning up some ice off my car. He says "you're smoking". I said "yeah??" He informs me that I am not allowed to smoke in a rest area unless I am in my car. I have to say, I have never heard of that. But he let me go.
