If you are a regular reader you may remember the previous post I made regarding a car at the office that took a beating from a hail store a while back. Well, that car just can't catch a break.
|The car in question|
Not long ago I had to drive it out of town, and took it home the night I returned rather than going to the office and then driving home. So the next morning I go out the garage door, load up and start to drive away. Halfway out the driveway I realize that I have not closed the garage door, and I do not have a garage opener in the car either. I put the car in reverse, back into the driveway again, put it in park and get out to close the door. I had no more than entered the code then I hear a strange noise and turned to see what is going on. I see the door coming down, and the car is stealthly rolling UP the driveway and aiming for the garage door.
|This takes skill!|
Jumping into the car, I slam on the break and put it back into park, but not before I hear that sound a driver just hates to hear... Crunch. I pull the car forward (this time being treated to a sickening scrape sound) and check out the damage. Fortunately I had replaced the frame of the garage door with vinyl so there were only scuff marks on the frame. However, I somehow had dented the body without breaking the tail light. The only other damage? A scuffed bumper and my pride.
Some things just can't catch a break.
