Wanted – One Silver Lining, Good Condition


Hey Dad, I took my driver’s license test today.

Oh no.

I told Mom that I needed to drive the BMW because of the shorter turning radius…

Oh no!

…and better control.

Oh no.

It has great breaking!

Oh no.

And let me tell you about acceleration…

Oh no!!!

Man, there is nothing with better acceleration than the Beemer!

What happened?

Let me tell you, 0 to 60 in, just wow!


I missed the break and hit the gas…

Oh no…

I went through a brick wall…

Oh no……..

But at least I didn’t fall off the edge!

    Still laughing! So well told. The crescendo of ‘Oh no’s
    Actually, when I went back to driving after a break of about 30 years, I remembered the pedals were ABC… But I couldn’t remember whether it went left to right or right to left! I tested them out very gently!
    Great story.

    Hilarious not the BMW, My friends Dad took her out for a driving lesson hit the accelerator instead of the break just missing going through the front door of their house. Her Dad didn’t say anything got out the car slid over the bonnet to get into the house grabbed a couple of beers from the fridge & sat out in the backyard for a few hours.

    A funny take. Actually, it sounds like something I would have… well, did… do back when I first started driving. Only I missed the plate glass window and took out the garbage can. Thank goodness. Mom was sitting at the table just on the other side of the glass when it happened. I was forbidden from parking in front of the restaurant ever again. LOL!

      I was wondering the same thing about the lack of damage on the car. I know BMWs are well made, but that is ridiculous…. I don’t think Liz wrote the real story about what happened, but I need to go back and see, just in case…

    That’s a story you don’t want to tell dad in person. If he can see that you’re all right, he can skip concern and go right into pissed faster than a BMW can go 0-60.

    My son is old enough to get his learn’s license in a couple more years and the picture and your narrative are how I imagine it is going to go…I am not sure whether I should laugh or cry!

    Great post, Trent. Thanks for sharing.
