Default scary stuff

allright so i pull out of school and head down a big hill which heads to the highway...the gear selector showed that i was in "D" so i get on the highway, stomp it a little, shift out of first, continue stompage....wont shift.....what the? take it up high again....wont shift......im like OMG my car is jacked up it wont shift out of second. i take it up to like 5 grand and it still wont shift, im doin like 70+ in second gear. then i get the notion to shift it into "D" cause it was actually in "2" even though the orange thingy was under the "D"(its loose)....just thought id share my stupidity

The exact thing happened to me before It wasn't pretty. After a while I realized something wasn't right. And if I remember correctly, the sound wasn't good either

well its not THAT loose just lose enough, but hey it works and if it aint officially broke dont fix it! actually i would fix it but i dont know how to get in there. and i dont remember any sounds that were unnatural just the engine going way higher than it shouldve for the amount of pedal i was givin it, i was givin it like 3/4 throttle and next thing ya know im bout to redline it, hehe you shouldve seen me freakin out, then i looked up and saw an Escalade on my butt, and he never left, i was goin 80 in a 65 and he was like tailgatin me, i had to take the shoulder when i turned into the gas station because he just would not slow down enough. stupid people.
