Unhappy Actually it's my fault

So yesterday we're off to the shops, another jolly shopping trip cos I had forgotten just how much fun the sales were

Wifey is driving (her car) and we park in a multistory car park.

So on the passenger side is a concrete pillar (I had already got out)

On the driver side a 3dr coupe with huge doors.....

She is parked, the pillar is abouta foot from the passenger side mirror, but she's close to this coupe!

I suggested she parked closer to the pillar so that if, matey opens his huge coupe door he wouldnt ding the car......

So, without moving forward or back within the bay, she simply turns the steering wheel full lock, and raises the clutch.............lurching straight into the pillar........

Oh..................and.................It's my fault

I'm not married yet; been there, done that though.

Then of course if you had tried to explain exactly what to do... "don't treat me like a 5 year old" is the answer you'd get.

I made a further mistake in asking:

"Why the hell did you do that!"

Which was silly of me really when clearly:

"Because you ****ing told me to, you ****er"

.........was her demonic reply.

You have my sympathy.

Somehow, in spite of all of our breakthroughs in the communication field that allow us to hear crystal clear a person on a phone on the other side of the planet, somehow, in just those few scant feet between Us and Them, somehow, everything we say gets jumbled and misunderstood and misrepresented and misconstrued.

And yes, it is always our fault.

Looking on the bright side, it wasn't the Saab was it?

Oh, gawd, yes...

Borrowed my dad's Cavalier estate to go up to the school to get my A-level results. Coming back, the truck I was following stopped at some roadworks - and started to back up. Of course, I was right behind him... and could I find reverse in that bloody Cav box? Could I hell...

<crunch, graunch, f**k!>
I finished up standing on the horn with the wagon about 6" from the front of the car...
