I don't have my plug in thingy (technical term there) so I can't upload any photos while I'm here [at my parents']
So I've not been looking out for opportunities I will admit.

I'll sort that out when I get home.

I definitely wasn't expecting this...



Not a very good picture but it's definitely the best entry so far!

Oh, my goodness, you didn't think that was MY toilet roll?

I assure you I have no need for such things!

Got a phone call from my wife who was out teaching my daughter to drive. She was flustered and needed our AAA info to call a tow truck. I drove over to meet them and be there when the truck arrived. I didn't expect to see this.

She was practicing parking in an empty lot and slowly pulled into a spot and stepped on the brakes. Except it was the gas. So she stepped on the brakes harder, except it was the gas. She's mortified.

Car's fine other than a bunch of deep scratches on the front bumper. No damage.

Nobody hurt and minimal vehicle damage, that's cheap for a valuable lesson learned. I'm sure she won't forget it, ever, and will make an interesting story when she's in the old age home.

My middle daughter did the same, but head-butted our tenant's van that
back-butted that tenant's boat-trailer that dumped that tenant's driftboat
that dislodged that tenant's carport support post.

My daughter refused to get her driver's license until she was 20 or 21.

She kept saying that she did it to our nice car.

Our Prizm looks like crap at this point with peeling clear coat. I'd prefer that she practice with that car except it's manual transmission and she's only got about an hour of driving under her belt at this point. I'm afraid throwing manual transmission into the mix would make things that much more complicated.

So when I learned to drive, I got sent to a driving school and learned on their cars, and then after I got the basics down, my parents taught me how to drive a stick shift VW bus. In Virginia, they don't want you to go to driver's ed until after you have logged 100 hours with your parents. That seems really stupid. What if the parents teach bad habits during those hundred hours? And then there's also the issue that the parents don't have an extra brake pedal on the passenger's side of their car. Plus, I'd rather somebody else's car get fucked up when the student invariably makes mistakes.

I'm really pleased that this was such a minor incident, and that nobody got hurt, and the car is still in pretty good shape. It could have been so much worse. The tow truck driver was whooping and hollering when he pulled the car out and walked around to look at it and saw no damage. He was proud of himself.

So this is the damage. There was a chain link fence in those bushes and the fence scratched it up.
