Always Look Back

today's post is brought to you by....

Lets talk about the past hour of my life for a minute. I came home from work to find somebody working here at our house [this part was not a surprise but necessary information for the story]. Because I absolutely hate being home when others are here working, I walked in, said hello, and then decided I was going to go fill up my car with gas, replenish our liquor cabinet, and see what other shenanigans I could get myself into while I wait for them to be done working. Naturally I hop in my car, start backing up, and then suddenly....cruuuuuuuuuuuuuuunch. Turns out they had driven a car here and said car was parked in our driveway which I completely forgot about during the whole 2 seconds I was inside our house. Do you know how awkward it is to have to walk back inside your house and shyly say "uhhhh....I think I just hit your car". Especially awkward when they think you said something to the extent of "I left my keys inside" and they respond smiling saying "Oh, I know I do that all the time!" After repeating for a second time, "No, I hit your car -- I think you need to come outside", they finally understood. Long story short I've spent the past 45 minutes on the phone becoming an adult [also known as filing a claim] and downing a beer in hopes I will forget this all even happened. Unfortunately the scratches and dents are still there, however this Modelo was on point.

Happy Monday, may you always know what's behind you.

  1. OMG - that is awful! My sister did that once - was pulling into my parents' driveway, and for some ungodly reason, decided she was going to try and park some fancy way and smashed the crap out of my mom's van. She was afraid to drive for like a year after that!

  8. Hey it happens to everyone. Twice my dad has backed into my car. Both times it happened right after I said, "Dad don't forget my car is back there."

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
