"Honey, I Think I Should Drive..."

About a week before we left for Oregon, Tim was driving our older Nissan minivan home when the driver's side window fell into the door! It simply disappeared. He had rolled it down and was putting it up, but it seemed to have other plans and started a game of hide-and-seek. We haven't had the opportunity to fix it yet, we just covered the window, parked the van in the garage and left it there.

So, today Tim's sitting at the base Car Care Center with one of his co-workers. Her car was in the shop for repairs and he'd volunteered to take her to pick it up. He was driving our other minivan. (Yes, we have two. Tim loves minivans.) They were sitting in the parking lot when the back window exploded. Exploded! As far as they can tell, there wasn't anything that happened to cause it, and the force seemed to have come from within, as the glass shattered outward rather than into the van. It's totally bizarre.

Tim's been home one day. I've been driving the newer Dodge minivan for several days before he got home and this was his first day driving. What do you think, should I allow him into any of our vehicles once they are fixed?! I'm thinking he's jinxed.

  1. How could it possibly explode? Is that kind of like my tree erupting? :)

    I'm sorry you have to deal with that...and, no he shouldn't be driving anymore of your cars!


  2. Yeah, that's what happened the window erupted...
