That it does

Here is a copy of what was posted on MNBC

Quote:
So, today I'm going to get my brother and a friend from another friends house in the ritzy area of the Kingsway in Etobicoke (between my city of 'ssaua and Toronto). I missed their house and assumed it was another place. I spotted a black BMW way up in front of this HUGE house. Now, bear in mind I had never been to this place.

Rich ppl seem to have issues with posting clear address numbers on their properties, so I drive up this snow covered winding driveway. No problem going up....get to the top. Not the right house. So...back down the driveway.....slowly, noticed the car sliding. Now on either sides of this drive is a big drop so...dammit I crane the wheel to the right to get the back end to swing away and centre myself back onto the drive.

Park the car, hop out. My driver side tire is completely turned in the right position. Nice...I notice a decorative light pole..very close to my tire...not nice. Can't go forward...to slippy...can't straighten the wheel or I lose my car down the slope....not a good feeling, I assess the situation. Rub the lamp pole and scrape the fender..or lose my car.

So I slowly begin to back out and sure enough...

ssscccrrrrapppppeeeee

DAMNIT...effin thing...

Get to the bottom of the drive..run up assess the pole...no damage. My car, 6'x6' indent above my front left tire. Nice goiuge where a screw head rubbed. Effin thing..


So I drive to a family friends house who has a body shop. Its repairable, and I get a new coating of pearl white paint on my fender
