Because I'm tired of people walking behind me when I'm backing up and I can't see shit out the back with that freakin' 41 up there. Figure I'll at least give them a fair heads up...
I should strongly consider one of these
It was like 4-5 am, dark, raining, started backing up and I stalled
... at the street = maybe the tranny's slipping?
Start her backup, realllllly give her some gas
then I hear the
snap, crackle, pop of a Mitsubishi four door sedan. My alcoholic neighbor across the street (theoretically came home drunk) parked at the bottom of my driveway.
I go across the street, pound on the door “hey can you move your car? Your blocking my driveway, I have to go to work…” Dum-Dum moves his car into his driveway and I go to work. He was so drunk he didn’t notice I caved in his windows, doors, etc. (remember it was raining). I called my wife “if they ask, you don’t know anyyyything."
After work, go home, knock on their door, wife answers, he’s not there “I’m sorry about his car, let me know how you want to handle this….” The woman was shaking in fear or relief I don’t know; probably both, figuring her hubby had pulled a hit and run?
Oddly enough my 60 year old alcoholic neighbor recently got a DWI, and now parks in HIS DRIVEWAY.
