The Car Disputes Fence on Hill
I was heading off to University one late morning when I learnt my housemate’s car was parked behind my car. Looking around the house she was no where to be seen, I contacted her mobile only to hear it ring beside me. The situation couldn’t get more annoying as she had gone for run, however luckily for me the clouds were rolling in. Magically I was making the clouds produce rain to rein her back home. Calling her name my other housemate woke up, and subsequently he decided to roll her car down the driveway which was on a slight hill. You may think why didn’t they just reverse the car down normally, well the thing is both of us never learnt to drive a manual (stick drive). Yes I know it’s pathetic. While rolling the car down the driveway, my housemate for some reason steered the car to close to the left heading right towards the fence. “Stop Stop” I yelled. “Why the bloody hell are you steering to the left”. He tried again but the car slid right into the fence. “Stop for god sake, what you doing”. The rain began pelting down, which I began to worry that she will arrive home any moment to witness this very awkward moment. He then turned the car on, put it in a gear he thought was forward and bang, scrapes and scratched into the fence twisting the side mirror around. “F%$# man, were screwed”. We attempted to push a full size car up the hill, bugger me the weight was enormous. He got out leaving the full weight to me while somehow I scrounged up some superhuman strength to held the car on the hill “Put the hand break on, put it on quick” I finally got in the driver seat, put it into gear, and at last the car went forward and I parked it the same spot previously. Miraculously the car was undamaged without a scratch. Shaking and laughing we went inside the house like nothing happened. A few minutes later my housemate arrived home due to the rain, and she gladly moved her car. She may have found it weird when starting her car that it decided to go in reverse.
