Woke up to the smell of breakfast cooking!! Sweet Clinton made me pancakes and hash browns--a real Christmas
Clinton and I went to the mall. He parked the car and said he needed to run in quickly. I had another errand that I wanted to take care of so I told him I'd come back and pick him up. Right before he left he said, "Now be careful. There are a lot of crazy drivers on the road today." I reassured him and he went inside.
The parking lot was FULL of cars and I was waiting for a lady to move from behind my space. I noticed that she was a ways away from me and I thought I had plenty of room to back out and slide in beside her. I looked behind me and there was plenty of space. I put the car in reverse and slowly backed out of my space...CRUNCH! Well, crap! I wasn't paying attention when we parked (and apparently when I was backing out) and our space was a straight space on the very far end of a diagonally-angled row. When I pulled out at a sharp angle to slide in beside the lady behind me I ran right into the parked car beside me. Stupid, I know.
I called Clinton in a panic and he came out, looked the other car over and reassured me that I had caused no damage, thank goodness (I was going about 1/2 mile/hour after all).
I share this because of the irony. He had mentioned the crazy drivers on the road...I had no idea I was one of them!
