I have a special calling in life. I am my husband’s personal driving assistant–for free!
As I have mentioned in an earlier post, he is utterly unappreciative of my assisting and can’t see what an asset I truly am. If only I had been there this weekend.
My husband decided to take my two girls to a local water park.
A couple of hours after he left, I get THE CALL. They had been in a bit of a driving mishap.
This was my husband’s story and he’s sticking with it.
The water park has a parking lot fee, which my husband paid online. As he arrived at the parking lot, he was glancing up at the slides and somehow didn’t notice the intended fee-paying entrance to the parking lot. Nor did he notice the “Do Not Enter” sign. Nor did he notice the spikes jutting out of the ground that were there to stop him from entering. (He doesn’t drink, I swear!)
Three tires immediately blew. When he opened the car door all he could hear was, “pshhhhhh”.
Dani was the one to initially tell me the story on the phone. As usual, I could tell she was loving this adventure! Most of their day was spent at Sam’s Club getting new tires. Goodbye $600. I will miss you!
Thankfully, my girls filled up on a good $10 worth of free food samples. Yes, we do hope to make up the entire amount of the tires by taking advantage of samples. A mere 60 trips to Sam’s Club should do the trick.
They did finally make it to the water park, but Evie was too terrified to go near a slide. Hopefully eight trips down the lazy river was adequate reflection time for my husband to realize how valuable his driving assistant is.
Though next weekend, we’ll all stay home and let the kids run through the sprinkler.
