This blog is not for the light-hearted or easily offended. If either one of those descriptions applies to you, i would suggest you start drinking before you read this blog. A sense of humor is suggested. If you don't have one that sucks for you … find one and get a life!
So get a load of this. As you know (or you would if you read this blog on a regular basis) I have a white Lexus SUV, the small kind. Actually it’s a Lexus RX370, well I think it is; now I feel like I need to go to the garage and look.
It seems that everybody and their mother has this car or has one that looks similar. I had no idea how popular these small Lexus SUV’s were until I bought one and then spent my life walking up to the wrong car.
The other problem is that the Lexus likes like a whole bunch of other cars so not only do I mistake my car for another Lexus but apparently I’ve hit a new low.
Here’s what happened:
I went to Pilates the other day and did my normal class. Like many OCD people on the way out of Pilates I checked my phone and emails, mostly my emails. It’s kind of funny because I probably get an important email once a month and mostly I spend my life unsubscribing to things that I don’t actually remember subscribing to but that’s another post isn’t it?
So I was walking to the car and I was making sure that I didn’t get hit by another car but I really wasn’t paying that much attention. I hit the unlock button on the car and I heard a beep and I was walking up to the car and I yanked the door open and guess what?
There was a woman sitting in the driver’s seat just looking at me. Boy was she surprised that I just walked up to her car and opened her door.
She looked at me. I looked at her and said, “Shit, I’m sorry. This isn’t my car.” She was still just staring at me when I closed her door and backed away.
Where was my car? Obviously close enough to unlock when I pressed the button but actually 3 spaces away. This time I went to my car and looked at it closely and then got in.
How embarrassing is that? The funny thing is that I have my bumper sticker on the back of my car but I never even looked up from the email I was reading and I just assumed that was my car.
Hahahaha…I have tried to get in other peoples cars many times now since I got this car but this is the first time I’ve done so with another person actually sitting in the car.
Guess I need to start paying a bit more attention or at least check the back bumper huh?
