Poor Wienermobile!

If you're having a bad day just count your blessings. Like you probably don't have the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile crashing into your home. The giant hot dog on wheels was driving down a road and the 22-year old driver was trying to turn it around in a driveway. She thought she was in reverse and went forward.

<-- I don't know what she's smiling about!

Sometimes you just got to have patience..Even if there's a big sale at the mall, you've gotta look for a parking spot.

My obsession with car wrecks this week? It's true. My eldest is learning to drive.

It feels like just yesterday that I was the one being tentative behind the wheel and hoping the car wouldn't roll backward at a light while I figured out the clutch from the brake. I remember very clearly having the car on my own for the first time and heading off to the mall. At a light there was a very attractive young man in a convertible next to me. I was sooo busy smiling and making goo goo eyes at him that I thought all the vapour around me was the blurriness that comes with true love. Unfortunately, my car had overheated LOL!

How about you? Any new driving stories?

It's not every day you say the Wienermobile has crashed into your living room. LOL!

Now I know you're definately not in America - you mentioned a clutch! My only driving stories seem to happen to me - people have a habit of driving into me when I'm just minding my own business at a junction! So far I've picked up sciatica and a recurring neck problem just for sitting patiently waiting for my turn to pull out... I don't have any pictures to tell the story but my language at the time could be described as 'colourful'!

True, Tori. I don't think you get many chances to use the word Wienermobile in everyday conversation either tee hee!

Wend, now I know we're related lol! I've been hit just stopped at a light minding my own business. Ouch on the sciatica and neck problems!

The less said about me and accidents the better. Let's just say my long history started with putting the driver's ed car in the ditch, and leave it at that.

I've been accident free for over ten years, though. :knocks on wood:

B.E. I hate to say it but "putting the driver's ed car in the ditch" sounds like the beginning of a great story! Glad you're not longer living that wild, dangerous life though ;)
