Default Fiance'* encounter with a big stick

...I thought that would get you all in here...

She drives a 93 SE. Last weekend, as I was driving up to her place, I noticed something hanging from the bottom middle of the car. I told her about it, she siad her dad would get it. Today she was driving to school (she'* a kindergarten teacher) and the car made a horrible dragging noise the whole way there and back. When she got to school (the whole 3 block drive) she looked under, saw the large stick, and tried to dislodge it with her ice scraper, as her arms aren't long enought to reach it (she'* 5'3"), unsuccessfully. Drove home after work and her dad got it out.

She told me to let you all know about her experience with a big stick while I was away.

I guess the "walking tall" part of the "walk tall and carry a big stick" routine won't work for her?



Don't tell her I said that.

It'* a shame she didn't have some chewing gum and some aluminum foil- she could have McGuyver'd it. That guy could fix anything.

You forgot about the duct tape and the watch ( don't need a stick since it was already under the car), Geez, some people. lol

But back to the topic, hehe

How did that stick get under there?

I'm sure she absentmindedly drove over the stick.

Oh the things that man does........
Come to think of it... I can't remember anything he did exactly... I remember chewing gum... watches ... string and misc metal parts and mirrors...


Back on topic... any idea how the stick got there?
Did she run over a tree and not notice?
