"As he pulled away from the house he heard somebody yelling, "HELP!" "HELP!"

Directions:

My Mamaw and Papaw supplemented their income by selling milk. Keith, Kenny and I would go to their barn every evening and help with the milking. We would be given a gallon of milk for our labor. My Papaw used to say Clemons would milk if he could do it from a tractor.

One day the milkman came to pick up the can of milk. As he was pulling away from the house he heard someone yelling, "HELP!" "HELP!" Well, he slams the truck's brakes and turns the truck off. He hops out, thinking he's run over somebody. He looks around and doesn't see anyone. Then he looks under his truck and doesn't see anyone. He gets back in and starts up his truck again. As he starts up his motor to head down the drive, he hears it again, "HELP!" "HELP!" Certain he's killed somebody, he brakes hard and turns off his motor. Same thing again, he hops out, he looks around his truck and he looks under his truck. Nothing. Nobody. Puzzled, he gets in his truck and leaves.

On one of his returning trips to the farm, he's loading the milk and e hears that same cry for "HELP!" "HELP!" He looks up and sees it's one of Mom Bundy's peacocks sitting up in a tree, screeching..

Later, he tells the story to my Mamaw and Papaw. Laughing, he says he was afraid he had run over somebody. What was really happening was the peacock would screech "HELP!" "HELP!" every time he started up his truck.
