I don't know about you but sometimes when I'm driving I find myself higher up, which I generally like. That, however, can spell disaster if you're backing up and don't happen to see low-lying obstructions. Like a fire hydrant, for instance!
No, I didn't knock this one over. But that's not to say that I never have. In fact, some years ago, on my way to pick up the baseball team for a game, I stopped at Safeway for Gatorades for the boys (that'll teach ya). I backed up and knocked over a hydrant. Honestly, that thing was almost invisible! I of course called the police as it was creating quite a hazard in the street, much like this did today near my house. My insurance company wound up paying, not only for the repair of the hydrant, but for the WATER. Remember, this is California and water is precious and very expensive.
Anyway, when I saw this today after getting my pedicure (I had an air-tight alibi!), I found this and had to snap a photo.
SEE, I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE!! My kids still think I may have done this one, too, actually.
Love to you all,
