Angry The worst 2 days of my life!

I think people might get a kick out of this one. Well of course it all starts with the huge storm we just got here in the great northeast. Yesterday morning we got about 7inches of snow. Snowblowed the driveway and I got my 20004 Dodge Caravan out and as I am comming down the driveway I hit ice and spun the van around like 360+ and somehow ended up sideways in the drive way stuck. I called my neighbor with a 2008 GMC 3500 Truck and pulled me out. He takes off to go to work and As I am getting my self situated at oh 11:00 in the day. I go in change and come out and I hear yelling. Its the lady a couple doors down who has her Buick stuck in the drive way. I go over to help her out. 2 hours later we got her out.(Me and a neighbor) As we get it out she gets stuck again. I was pushing her car and the neighbor told her to floor it so she does and I slipped and fell and on her car putting a dent on the bumber. I cant belive it. Its about 3ish in the afternoon and NOTHING GOT DONE TODAY BUT me getting a sweety and pissed of. Now today comes and I get the C280 stuck in the driveway It took me 30min to get it out but she managed to move. Now just now the same old lady that got stuck yesterday got stuck again and I pushed her out and now her car has a transmission issue..

I was gonna say ... man, I wish that were my worst day ever!

But I get what you're saying c280 ... sometimes when it rains (or snows), it just pours. Like how all my cars seem to synchronize when something goes wrong with them. That kind of stuff makes the rest of the day (work, chores, etc.) just seem that much worse.

Hangnail ... please. Get back to us once you've had chapped lips.

C280 Sport, being a good neighbor is the right thing to do.

Did you get hurt when you dented the bumper?

I had a similar experience twice last month and I'm sure another is less than a couple weeks away.

We ran out of milk

Earlier this week the program guide was not working on my plasma, ruined my night. Next day discovered I had no coffee, ruined my morning. It was brutal.

Funny you mention that, one of the times the car was stuck in the driveway I couldn't even stay home and drink because I was out of beer, my car was halfway in the road so I call the plow guy and he agreed to pull me out...I said don't worry about that just bring beer.

The beer did not arrive for TWO HOURS, man that was the worst day of my life.

I was in the kitchen while my wife was watching the weather channel. She yells "expecting nine inches!". I yelled back "you'll have to settle for six!"

I didnt get hurt when I hit the bumber but I sure as hell was cold because of the amount of time I spend outside. I think it was about 15 out at the time.
