Domino's Accident

So, you can call me "Crash" again. My Uncle Ron used to call me that when I was in high school for hitting a parked car. Since then, I've been in a few different accidents but the most embarrassing is the one that happened yesterday.

I was pulling into a parking spot in the Domino's parking lot where I work. My body must have been shifted somehow, and as I tried to brake my car didn't stop. I realized a little too late that my right foot (which usually pushes the gas and the brake in my stick shift car) had been pushing in the clutch. The only feeling I remember at first is confusion. After that came horror, then dread. And finally "I'm an idiot. I can't believe I just broke into Domino's.. literally. So much for buying a house." I backed out of the store into my parking lot and started crying. Police came, arrangements were made for the windows to be boarded up, and everyone told me that this type of accident happens about once a year in Logan and that's why we all have insurance. Here are some pictures. I don't have much time to write more details, but if you have questions I'd be happy to answer them. Oh yeah, nobody got hurt; it just scared the poop out of me.

This first one is the "very clean" window, and the bar in the middle of the picture is actually the open door.

This is all of the broken glass and signs that were on the window in the trash can.

This is where someone could have been sitting, but wasn't.

One hour after impact. The window guys are amazing.

My souvenir.

That's why I ONLY crash into things when I'm in a car, there's no telling what could happen!

Top ten things you could have said after impact:

10. Oh, this isn't the car wash...
9. I'm totally kidding guys! (then giggle)
8. Who parked the building so close?
6. ooh ooh eee eee eee aaahhh aahh, then make a monkey face, climb on the hood, and scratch your armpits
5. Nothing, just sat in the car as if nothing happened and kept singing at the top of your lungs smiling at the customers
4. Pardon me, would you have any Gray Poupon?
3. My bad
2. If this doesn't get me fired I don't know what will!
1.I just saved a ton of money on my car insurance!!!

Woah Jess! I'm sorry that happened and glad that no one was hurt. I do have to admit I giggled just a little though. How's the car?
