Last night…

Written By: Gary on June 3, 2005 3 Comments

When I walked in last night I noticed the garage door closer opener made a funny noise. I thought maybe I didn’t pull the car in far enough but when I looked it seemed fine. You do see where this story is going, don’t you? Today when I opened the garage door it stopped just even with the back bumper. I’ve got a stupid ball hanging from a string so I pull up far enough and sure enough, I wasn’t up far enough. So now I’ve got a great big gouge in the back bumper (and two little ones). And I had done so well keeping this car in good shape so far. :(

    I use to have a ball on a string until the ball fell off. Now I just have a string. It blows around, making it useless for navigational purposes. So now I just drive forward, slowly, until I feel the front bumper touch the cabinet against the back wall. That’s my version of driving by Braille. So far, no damage. At least not much. :)

    OH NOOOOOO…..that’s awful. One year my father was forced to do something like that with the ball on a string because my mother kept messing up the car when she would pull in the garage. Of course the ball/string didn’t help much when she was backing out of the garage one day and was too close to the garage and took off one of the side mirrors. :)

    that’s why I don’t use my garage. although my vehicle would be nice and dry and warm all the time, it would also be all dinged up and mirror-less. ;)
