Back in the good old days, Mexicans worked the supply chain and everything was cheap and in stock.

Flowery Twats: Backed my car into the garage door last week, so I'm getting a kick out of this

Long story involving sunlight, reflections, tinted windows, dark garage door, and personal stupidity.
Only $300 to fix it. Lesson learned.


Dude we've all been drunk and barreled through our garage door accidentally. You can just admit it.

So is this the polar opposite of the 11ft 8 bridge?
Instead of taking off the top, it scrapes off the bottom.

I did that a number of years back. My own garage. I hit the opener, but it didn't work and I didn't look in the rear view while I was backing up. Fortunately I back up very slowly anyway. You can barely see the dent and it still works. It was sunny. I wasn't even drinking. I have to plead guilty to personal stupidity too.

I didn't see it there.

Perhaps the "reporter" could have made a single quick call to anyone in the construction or facilities industries to learn that those are called bollards.  Nope.  When turning a viral video into a "story" is what passes for journalism, even the tiniest bit of research is too much effort.

Detailed one or two of those things in the past and was proud and satisfied watching them tell that truck to fark off.

The guy seemed so desperate to get away I have to wonder if the rig was being stolen.

I was once on a tour bus where the driver turned sharp out of the hotel we were staying at and cut over a short (two foot or so) wall.   It made a hell of a noise the FIRST time he hit it.    He stopped and rather than backing up and trying a wider swing, he just decided to continue forward.   He made it about a block with one of the wheels bent at 90 degrees dragging all the way down the street to another parking lot.   We had to wait an hour for a replacement bus.
