This is weird, but as a child, I was deeply afraid of the Garda trucks. I thought they were the Italian military (guard=garda) and they were taking over the United States. I didn't find out until high school what these trucks actually were. I have no idea why I thought that Italians were interested in taking over and I pretty much forgot about this fear until now!

...or maybe you are secretly an Italian that has been planning to take over the US for the last 25 years?

Ha! That's interesting. I didn't even realize the Irish police were referred to as Garda until right now. I'm not sure why I decided Garda was Italian in my 7 year old mind...

I'm glad someone else thought they looked threatening!
