Pokey.Clyde: You don't know what an emergency/parking brake is?

This.  I had a mechanic put part of the system together backwards and I found myself rolling towards a gas pump with brakes that were doing *VERY* little despite my pushing the pedal all I could.  The emergency brake stopped me.

itsaback: Had this happen twice. First time I was 16 and on my way to school. Was driving about 35 mph at the time, but proceeded to make a right turn at a stoplight nearby. A few seconds later, the previously attached wheel rambled its way into the side of my beloved Plymouth Volare, marring its faux-woodgrain. I never figured out what had happened or how, as the wheel came off, but the lug nuts remained. Just ripped through the rim, while driving in a straight line. Should have asked my Physics teacher.
The second time was about 6 years ago after a rotation, Wheel came off, and just rolled off into the woods. 45 mph that time. I had spare lug nuts and reattached the wheel. Never went back to that place, as it would have led to trouble,.

Not my car but I had a scary incident.  The wheel just came off the truck we were in.  A lion supervised the whole reattachment process.  The only firearm around was a .22 in the hands of a park official.

dickfreckle: And don't forget the blinker fluid.

If you're lucky enough to drive a British or Italian car, the best time to attend to that is when you're refilling the wiring harness smoke.

Lsherm: jaylectricity: CSB: Took my girl's car to get her oil changed because the place was charging less than I could even buy the oil and filter for. He's got the car up on the jack and he says, "One of these lugs is stripped and another post is missing."

I knew about the post but it was impossible that I stripped the lug because I hand tighten them every time. He wanted to replace the posts for $50 I said no way. He tried to say, "Well, the manager is being really cool because he shouldn't let you drive this out of here."

I'm like, "Yeah, I live 5 seconds away and you'll never see me again." Cost me about $4 to replace the posts and lugs myself.

Why the fark were you driving a car with a missing post on one wheel?

4 outta 5 ain't bad.
