Today I backed into my apartment building on the way to take the kids to school. I was parked in a spot where I don’t normally park, and I had to back up at an odd angle to get out, and I had a weird feeling there was a support pillar that I wasn’t seeing as I backed up (it was in my blind spot), but I was actually looking and really couldn’t see anything. And then, crunch.
Yes, I felt really stupid. Luckily, there was only sort of minor damage to the bumper and one tail light. And it was a spot on the bumper that was already damaged from another minor incident in the apartment building parking lot (ahem), which, in my defense, is a ridiculously crowded and difficult-to-maneuver-a-car-through area.
Here are me and my poor car in happier, shinier days, before it had to endure me driving it:
