Fender-Bender (Well Almost)
Posted June 7, 2007on:
I was bringing my boys to school a few weeks back, Kyle for his theatre practice and Matt for his basketball. We were running a bit late. And the traffic light on that intersection along Gen. Maxilom Avenue and D. Jakosalem Streets has just turned red. We were the second car on our lane.
I had my foot on the brake as I talked animatedly with my boys. I didn’t shift to “neutral” nor to “park” as I knew this stop wasn’t going to take long. Then I felt the car inching forward. That’s the trouble with automatic, The split second it took me to realize what was happening seemed forever. And before I could do something, I instinctively stepped harder on the brake.
“SH*T!!!* was the only word I managed to blurt out when after I stepped on the brake, our vehicle lunged forward to “kiss” the small blue pick-up in front of us. Matt & Kyle sat stunned and couldn’t believe what just happened.
We just hit a car! *Groan*
