But have you ever been driving on the The Loop in Tyler and accidently butt-dialed 9-1-1? In the age where everyone has a smart phone that's always at the ready, accidental pocket-dials to emergency officials are a growing problem.

This is the Most Forgotten Item at Hotels

Have you ever checked out of a hotel, traveled home, and then realized you left something behind in the room?

I have. On a road trip to the north, my family stayed at a hotel in Wichita, Kansas, and when we got home we could only find one Dora The Explorer sock. In the process of jumping on the bed and running around the room, our 3-year old at the time must have shed a sock and a cleaning person whose daughter also may have had just one sock, hit the jackpot.

The average allowance nowadays is just over $16 a week or $65 per month, according to the American Institute of CPA’s. That comes out to about $780 each year.

Honda Accord is the Most Stolen Vehicle

The Honda Accord seems to be one of the most common vehicles seen on the roads, not only across the US, but right here in East Texas. Driving on the Loop in Tyler we see tons of Accords, mixed in with several domestic pickup trucks and foreign and domestic SUVs. I'm rockin' a Chevy Traverse, packed full of car seats, diaper bags, and scattered discarded Cheerios. And you?

If you drive a Tahoe, rest assured, it's not likely to be stolen. But if you drive a foreign car, you're chances of having it ripped off are pretty good. Yikes!
