#1270 – Switch

I got my first car back in high school and was excited to be able to drive there instead of walking or taking the bus. One morning I pulled up and turned off the engine but there was something wrong. I couldn’t get the key out of the ignition. I had no idea what to do. I started the car back up. Turned it off again. Turned it really hard. Nothing. Occasionally another student would walk by and I would casually rummage through my school bag as if they could tell that I was an idiot. I then replayed everything I did when I pulled up.
“Okay… pulled into the spot… hit the breaks to stop the car… put the shifter to park… oh wait. The car is still in drive.”
I was sitting there for 10 minutes with my foot on the break pedal and never put the car in park. The car was nice enough to not let me get out and leave before putting it in park.mercury, rocket, space
