Gravel on the Road

Happy Canada Day for everyone in Canada!
Happy 4th of July to everyone in the states!

In honor of everyone that is traveling this holiday I wanted to share a story.

I used to have a friend, let’s call her Hailey. Hailey was a pathological liar and actually I think frenemy is a better term for her. I know she talked shit about me behind my back, and well I talked shit about her behind her back.

So several years ago she had some kind of Ford Focus. The sports car edition, whatever that is. So one day all of the sudden, we noticed she no longer has this car. Her story: She wrecked it. She was driving down Popular Street, going about 5 under the speed limit, and at one point the street curves. At this curve apparently there was some gravel. So as she was taking this curve and hit the gravel and rolled her car, totaling it.

Seriously? Man said this same road, he would take to and from work too, and there was no gravel. And even if there was? There’s no way there would be enough to wreck your car. This was a highly used road, no way there would be a ton of gravel on it.

What we are pretty sure, what happened: She’s poor. Her family is poor. This was a car no way they could afford. It got repo’ed!

So moral of the story, watch for gravel when traveling. Call the State’s DOT and make sure the sweep all roads you will be traveling on so that you don’t roll your car.
