Yeah I know we all must have this at one point or another.

So im going to start out with this, one day at a car meet when I got there, I looked around for a couple friends of mine. I called them and turned out they were on their way, so i waited in my car. About 10 minutes later, they showed up and as soon as they got out of their car, i opened my car and my alarm came on!! I was embarassed and smiled and shook everyone's hands feeling stupid.

PS
I did not push the lock button and my Key was still in the ignition.. :(

Once I was cruising up my block at 15 mph because of the kids skating and playing. I shifted into 2nd without fully engaging the clutch sound was horrible had to happen infront of the house with 15 ppl on the porch. Lol that had to be the slowest missed gear in history lol I felt so stupid. All eyes were on the car that stopped the kids from playing.

did not see a small dip in front of ten rens and my tray that covers the oil change area scrapped. People were laughing. ='[
I scrape all the time. No one really cares, they just look and continue on what they're doing.

There was one time when I was pulling out of a parking lot and I didn't angle enough and scraped big time all I heard was my cat scraping and the girl passing by even cringed for me... I just waved and went on my way.

I came to terms with being gay at around 17. By the time I was a senior in High School, all my friends knew and accepted it but none of my family knew.
hmm interesting, I can see how that ties in with this thread...

hit the gas in stead of the brake in a parking lot, scrap over the cinder block sht with a tree there, i didnt hit the tree but i went a bit over, so had to reverse and scrap again to get out of it. (this was in my 02 civic...when i got my license for only half a year) haha

a lady next to me just stared at me. i walked out of the car pretended nothing happened, like a boss.

On my street, they put up those "humps" sign, but for weeks there were no humps. One day, the sun was in a position where it cast a tree's shadow across the street. I was driving at a fast pace, and when my lowered car went airborne, my passengers started laughing at me. After I parked, I watched the speed bump, and I couldn't help laugh myself because every car that went by went airborne (and I could hear people scream in each car).

It wasn't until the next day that the City got around to painting the speed bumps. The speed bumps are exactly the same color as the newly paved street, so I can't even see them despite actively looking for them (I have to look for the painted lines to find the speed bumps).

My other moment is when I pulled into the parking at work. 7 or 8 cops were hanging outside talking in the parking lot. I didn't realize the engine was still on, so when I put the car in first gear and let go of the clutch, my car jerked and squealed its tires. Good thing I work for the Department or else they might have walked over and given me a "gift" or something...lol

Stalling a couple times after getting my new stage 1 clutch installed.. my gf was like "wtf?" you never stall.. hah fml..
HA HA. Yeah, I did that in my s10 the other day and the fiance asked me the same thing in shock. She thought the truck was finally throwing in the towel. But cranked her right back up and on down the road we went. My s10 beater has 204K.

I was changing the oil. I began to re-fill the crank case, but kept hearing a dripping sound. I had forgotten to tighten the drain plug...it was only just BARELY threaded!

Got into a slight fender bender on the way to a meet.




At the meet I was talking with some people I had just met and someone came over and was like "Yo, did you guys see the S/C TSX with the accident?" and I'm like "Yeah, that's me." LOL. It made for a good laugh among the crowd.
