おい!ちょっと!

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.

  1. um…I may know someone who has done that … on more than one occasion…it is because one can't see the front of one's car anymore. Bring back the nose of a car, the hood ornament, something that lets you guess where the end of the car is! But my excuse is that I only have one eye and so have issues judging distance…not that it was me of course!

    Well if the truth be known, I've had my share of driving blunders. Many years ago took sn and wife out to a bridge oveer a marsh to show son the joys of crabbing. didn't get very many (tide was probably wrong) and for some reason that I've forgotten, I put the vehicle in reverse for a bit, not noticing a razor sharp protruison from the guardrail, which was low enough to slice through one of the tires.
