It happens...


I was driving home from work last night on the highway when suddenly I felt myself loosing control of my vehicle. It initially tried to slide into oncoming traffic. Luckily, I was able to prevent that from happening. I fishtailed between the two lanes for about 10-20 yards before I slid off the road. I slid into a sign and now the back of my car is messed up. I called some friends (I have the best friends in the world!) to come and get me. Before they could even get there, some other guys pushed me back into the road. The only damage that I can see is this dent and the back of my car is bowed out a little. My truck doesn't seem to want to stay shut all the way either.

However, I am thankful. I am thankful I did not slide into oncoming traffic. I am also really glad I had the sense not to yank my steering wheel and cause myself to flip. Although it sucks that I have to get my car fixed because of the sign, I am glad it stopped me. I don't think anything bad would have happened if it didn't, but you never know. Anyways, that was my drive home from work last night. I should have called in sick!
