Borders and cell phones
Jim and I made it through and stopped for gas and morning coffee, and decided to wait for the others. Twenty minutes go by and I decide to phone to see what the delay was with the third car. The phone was answered and the response was, we are just at the border and should be there soon. We waited another 10 minutes the went to the golf course. A tournament had been scheduled for 10:00 so the four of us who were there went out and golfed before the tournament started. We met the other three about 2 hours later and heard their story.
If you are at the border, do not answer your cell phone. The guys were just finished answering the border guards questions when the phone rang. As soon as it was answered, the orange card came out and they had to go in for processing. An hour later, they made it to the end of the line. The officer processing them just said, "Have a great day guys, next time don't answer your cell phone"
Lesson learned and hopefully remembered, but at our age that may be a problem.
