In which it wasn’t my car


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?

    My dad dropped my mum off at a store once and waited out front. She came out when she was done and got back in to the car. Sat there for awhile. “What are you waiting for?” she asked him….then looked over at him. To see a complete stranger. In the exact same car. And then looked through the windscreen at my dad in the car ahead of them laughing his ass off.
