omg, all the time. Scraping tires, hopping curbs, you name it. I drive a VW and it’s still a little big for my liking, HAHA. All he knows is when it needs oil or maintenance, b/c it blinks and beeps at me and flashes a wrench, and I get him to take it to the shop.  That’s in our marriage “agreement”, by the way.  He must maintain all cars, no questions asked, and I do the laundry.

I ran into the refrigerator the other day. I wasn’t paying attention, kept rolling forward in the garage and bumped it. Then backed up like 2 feet. He knew from the look on my face something was up though and couldn’t stop laughing. I have a small car, it’s like, how do you hit a fridge? Really.

I was in a car with a friend a few months ago and she hit a curb so hard (one of those high ones) her burrito went flying and we all had cheese and lettuce on our laps. We had a good laugh over it =]

I was in a hurry to get to work and I scraped our new car against the cement column in our parking garage, it’s right above the back tire. Thankfully its not that bad, just a little scratch and a paint chip. But I freaked out and didn’t tell Darling Husband. I wanted to see if he noticed it on his own and then I would fess up.

He noticed… I didn’t fess up…. so now he thinks a random car did it. I don’t have the courage to tell him it was me!

I totally hit a squirrel once while driving FI’s car. I’ll never tell him. I’ll hear “squirrel killer” jokes for the rest of my life. LOL

Hmmm, well, my Maid/Matron of Honor and I were driving on a busy highway and this guy in a pimped out mini van was driving like a jerk, so we kinda screwed with him by going super slow.  Then he showed up his gun… we stopped playing that game.  Aaahh, NYC at its finest.  I guess its not embarassing per se, but I didn’t tell my Fiance this story, I feel like he wouldn’t of liked it.  Lol

Haha I have totally crashed into the wall of my garage. I wasn’t going to tell, but the hole in the wall that my license plate made told for me. It’s not a full on hole but the wall is cracked…

I was on my way to the parking garage (apt complex) and the huge recycling & garbage bins are actually on the way to my car….

While throwing out the recycables, the car key in hand went w/ it!  Needless to say I went dumpster diving THREE TIMES and couldn’t find it….super disgusting, but funny @ the same time.

My Fiance is a mechanic, and does a lot of body repair also, so he would notice if I did something to my car and didn’t tell him! But I also tell him whenever I do something stupid, so thats ok. But, here’s my most embarrassing:

I was in drivers ed (ya, I know, long time ago!!!!) and we had to get gas. So I pulled up to the pump and the teacher got out, gassed up, paid, got us doughnuts, and then got back in. He told me to go ahead and go, so I did. There was a REALLY LOUD clunking noise. I was like, Oh crap, what did I hit?! We were all looking around shocked, and then noticed the hose sticking out of the side of the car! I drove off with it still in the car!!!!! My teacher was like, Oh well, I do it all the time, they make them so they break away! And got out and put the pump back together!!! I was so embarrassed and scared I’d fail drivers ed! (I didn’t, just for the record!)

my story is where hubby tried to break my car not me.  he put something in the back seat and didnt close the door properly and then he got into the drivers side and started to reverse the car

on reversing he felt a bit of resistance and heard a weird sound, he stopped, didnt notice anything weird and tried to reverse again… and experienced resistance and funny sounds again. stoped and looked around and saw that the rear door was open and being bent back on a fence post – so basically he was trying to remove the passenger door from my $65K car with a steel pole.  i was a the spa when he phoned me in hysterics – i told him as long as he was ok and it wasnt a engine smash, everything was ok
 
i still remind him of it ๐Ÿ˜€

My husband can’t say anything. He’s hit the same cement wall at work on the same spot on his truck 3 times in the past year. I really don’t know how he does it. Luckily its his work truck, but the bumper looks so sad. I run over curbs accidentally like nobody’s business, though. At the bank, at Walgreens, just turning left onto another road. It’s kind of embarrassing. 

Although my crowning glory was backing into a girl’s BMW in high school. I knew the car was there, and I just forgot when I put my car into reverse. I literally thought to myself, “don’t forget Kristin’s car is behind you,” before I closed the door. And then I smashed in the side. I called my boyfriend (who is now my husband) crying, but he just thought it was hilarious.

I’m known for trying to start my car when it is in drive and not park.  Sometimes I  go out of order and put the car in drive/reverse before starting the engine, and when I go to start, it won’t let me.  Then I call him (he’s a mechanic) and freak out because I need to get somewhere and my car won’t start! “Is it in park?” “No……. Bye.”
