What you see below is a shot wife took of her 'parking' at the house the other day when she returned home from work. I guess she feels its noteworthy as she only brushed ever so slightly the garage door with the front of the Quaalude when she could have just as easily rammed into it..
One could say in her defense that with the relatively steep incline our driveway is paved on, one might overshoot the mark, but hell we've been here for over 11 years now and you'd think that would not be an issue. Wife has a lead foot and despite being a driver now for almost as long as son has been alive, her modulation of the accelerator is heavy, very jerky and disquieting for son and I if we happen to be riding with her. And if such is pointed out to her, boy does the defensive mode kick in.
Given our financial/my unemployed situation right now, one of the very last things we need is to fix a damaged garage door.
