MY HANDICAPPED DECAL!!!
i got in my first accident that was my fault some Sundays ago. In my 24 years of driving, it was the first time that i could blame noone but myself. The right headlight was completely smashed and there were some scratches on the bumper, so i took the car in on Saturday to be fixed. As a result, i have a rental right now. Now, whenever i switch cars like that (get a rental, drive in someone else's car), one of the things that i always try to remember (ESPECIALLY with the rental) is the handicapped decal!
so on Saturday, G and I cleaned out the car, handicapped decal and all and transferred to the rental. I drive a Civic Coupe - the smaller the car (within reason), the better for me; we drove off the lot in an Impala - ugh - it just wasn't as comfortable for either of us (she drives my car way more than i do). Anyway, so we hung the decal on the rearview mirror, but every time we put it up, it fell back down - it just wasn't hooking on as it should have, so we just left it on theground of the car; no need to fight it.
Well we had to park at some time and i pulled into the handicap spot. I stayed in the car while G got out to get some stuff. While i was sitting there waiting, it occured to me that i should put the thing up even tho i was sitting in the car. Somehow i managed to hook the decal on properly so that it appeared to be a little more stable than it had been earlier, but the windows were down, so that was not helping the cause. I turned up the passenger side window, but left mine down. Everything was good until G got back to the car and opened the door...don't u know that decal went flying out the car!!! Good thing it was with G because she had to go running behind it to get it. Can you imagine if it had been me?? somebody else would be reaping my benefits because eh no way, i would have been able to catch it.
I can't imagine being without it - i really can't; it just makes so many things so much more convenient for me. It's kinda like my cane, i can't imagine how i managed without it.
