No, I don’t drive like a cop

BEIJING, CHINA - MAY 5:  A driver walks past t...
Fact is I don’t drive well at all! I drive more like a teenager her first time behind the wheel. Someday I am going to be super rich and hire a driver! I don’t know how I am going to get super rich being married to a cop. Might make more money if he worked for the pizza place. . . I need to think about that one, we might be making a career change.

Anyway, back to the driving. We went to see the booths set up at the fairgrounds today. It was busy, and there was no real parking. People just park where they want in a big field. It was packed today! I drove in with my big old van. First “lane” no parking place. Keep going and turn into the second “lane” still no parking. This goes on until I am near the end where I THINK I can get out. No. I cannot get out. I am blocked in. There is a big truck with something attached to it just blocking anyway out. So I put it in backwards. Oh it’s called reverse. Anyway, another car comes from behind me and makes it so I have to be like some pro race car driver in order to turn the corner, IF I were going forwards! But no, I am going backwards! So I do some magic moves. It went something like this:

Forward

Back

Forward left

Back right


Forward right

Back left

Stop and cry

Repeat!

After a good 15 minutes I was able to get the car turned around, only bumping maybe 5 other cars. I found a place to park and call T-rex. He was in a lot of trouble! I don’t care that he was working, he should have taken us, or seeing as he is the one who taught me how to drive he should have taught me how to deal with stuff like that. ERR. I hate driving.


So here I am the wife of a cop in tears because I cannot drive! Yeah I don’t see anything wrong with this picture either.

Dear Yellow,
Oh, heck! Sometimes I want to administer on-the-spot I.Q. tests to clueless people such as who blocked you in. Then I realize they have have already had their test and failed.

I also would choose a driver (and a laundry attendant--yeah) over any servant in the universe. I like to look out the window and think when i am in a car.

Hang in,
Ann T.

Aww. Tough break! Your description reminded me of the scene in one of the Austin Powers movies where he is in a hallway with his tiny car and doing a 200 point turn to go the other direction. Kinda funny! Too bad it was so tough on you.

Ann~ I fear it was MY driving that would have made me fail the IQ test. But I have no shame in saying it. LOL I let T-rex drive all the time.

Fabuleslie~ Thanks for swinging over. Yes it was JUST like that Austin Powers movie. Only add a little more crying. LOL. I have added the clip. Yep that sums it up.
