Thread Name: BS: Things you should only do once...
Subject: RE: BS: Things you should only do once...
Total the Austin Healy you've been restoring for 6 months on a straight four lane road on the way to work... when you are the only car on the road at 4:45 AM... completely sober and awake, and driving below the 40 MPH speed limit... on a crowned roadway covered from guardrail to guardrail with a continuous sheet of black ice 50 meters long...
glancing off said guardrails on both sides of the street twice... with an ex pro baseball pitcher sitting next to you shouting "WHAT THE F**K ARE YOU DOING!" over and over... and after finally managing to get the door to open after much clamouring and banging about with it, getting out of the hulk without a scratch... standing up, and immediately falling down because it is so slick... and spraining your wrist.

And then going right to work as a delivery driver with a tight schedual... and lots of freight.
