So I be working in the control room on Monday ’cause one of the board operators is on vacation. Phone rings and it be the woman – in another wreck – again. This time in Red Lodge while seeing her head doctor. Going to see the Tahoe today and deliver the rental car back home. So, lets make a count of the last couple of years: #1 – trashed the bed and both hips on the dually. #2- ran into a round bale with the grey truck and stuffed one of the rear quarter panels in. #3 – drove the rear bumper of the Tahoe into the rear door/quarter panel on the commuter car. #4 – drove her newer scooter into the Artic Fox overhead camper and did $4500 damage to the scoot and over $1500 to the camper. #5 – used the wrong nozzle on the powerwasher on my old h&f truck — so paint now flies off it when ya drive it down the road – I’m gonna get a littering ticket for this yet.
I’m telling ya — I need a vacation from marriage. Possible a permanent gig.
I’m lucky. My wife ain’t tore anything up ina couple years.
I guess I should take that back, she left the garage door open New Years eve and the water softener froze and broke the filter off. The good thing was the main water pipe was also froze so at least it didn’t flood out the garage. It cost me 250 bucks to get it fixed on new years day.
