My wife and I share the Jeep in our family. She got bit by the Jeep bug a few months ago and loves to drive the thing....anywho....
Out back of our house is where the Jeep lives, right in front of the garage door. We always park with the front of the Jeep facing the garage door, we have done this for quite some time. It is habit for both of us, when we drive, to get in, put it in reverse, and back out of the driveway.
Well, one afternoon, ( a Saturday none the less) I was working on the Jeep, doing some repairs to the tailgate. To make things easier on me and keep the project close to the tools.....I turned the Jeep around so it faced the other way. (Front now facing the street.) After working for a few hours, I finished, put away the tools, cleaned up, shut the garage door, and came in the house. I didn't turn the Jeep around.
About an hour later, I was sitting on the couch, when my wife stated that she wanted to go out to run some errons. I told her that I had finished working on the Jeep so she could take it if she wanted. She aggreed, after all, it was a nice day, so what the hey, right??
Wrong!!!! So a few minutes went by. There I was sitting in the living room....all of the sudden....BANG!!!SMASH!! I run downstairs in to the garage....stopped in my tracks.... and started to wonder why I could see the back of the Jeep in the garage with the door closed. You guessed it....she backed right through the door!
As women tend to turn things around (pun intended) this accident was my fault because I didn't turn the Jeep around. A little bit later my wife and I stood around, after the fact, laughing very hard. Slave to routine I guess.
