Real Life Experience #3

since I haven't shared any of my innate wisdom with you lately(like since January), I figured it was about time to do so......

take it from me.....say you are in your uber cool minivan dropping kids off at school & you are trying to back out of the parking lot....and imagine said minivan won't shift into reverse...well maybe, just maybe you should try inserting the key into the ignition & starting the vehicle, before you make the assumption your vehicle has just suddenly died,before start yelling superlatives outloud & before make a complete ass of yourself in front of God & everyone (hey, atleast it's still cold in Alaska & the windows were rolled up).......just in case you were wondering.....

***I intend to make this a new feature of my blog. I consider it my civic duty (***cough cough...choking on my own line of crap here***) to help others learn from my mistakes*****

You crack me up!!!! I did this the other day only my car was started and I had put it in N instead of D. I of course also went through the momentary blackout - you know the one where it couldn't possibly be me getting upset and freaking out. It had to have been my evil twin. That's my story and I'm sticking to it! Enough said. Love ya!

Hehe! I have tried to drive with my car off. I have also done that thing where I try to turn my car on and it's already running and makes a terrible noise. I have done that A LOT to my husband's dismay!!
