What an interesting day yesterday was.
At 7:00 a friend and I went to grab some Chinese take out. (My friend was driving)
We pulled into the chinese restaurant parking lot and sat idle figuring out what we were going to order. Meanwhile a white jeep cherokee seemed impatient to get out, thus my friend backed up, he backed up, just a litttle to far.
He hat a sort of post that came out of the ground, the post popped the "bumper cover" off his car, snapping the plastic thing that held it in place, this was the first of his bad luck.
Pissed, we went to CVS to get some liquid nails (to glue the bumper on).
We pick up the food and head back to my house.
since it was like 30 degrees out, i told my friend to pull his car into the garage. I can fit my Mitsubishi Montero in the garage no problem, I pulled that forward in the garage and told my friend to come in.
Apparently my friend can not judge turns at all, as i run to grab some paper towels to clean the back bumper, he hits the site of the garage; white paint all over his car. This is a Honda Pilot, although it is still an SUV, it had plenty of room to get into the garage (7 inches or more on each side (mirrors).
So, we begin our night, with a razor blade, and a wire brush, peeling the paint away off his car, millimeter, by millimeter.
To top off all my friends bad luck for the night, as he was walking around the car to check the bumper glue situation, his watch band breaks and its my garage floor, smashed to ****.

So, that was my night.
I have yet to talk to him today, to see if the bumper held.
I guess I'll tell ya when i know.

Cheerio!

It means buying food from a restaurant but instead of eating it at the restaurant you "take it out" and eat at home.

Ah, well ok. My apologies then, but perhaps an introduction would have been appropriate as well. :) At any rate, welcome to OSNN if you decide to stick around.
