The Wheels on the Car - Murphy's Law

Well I took my practical driving assessment this morning, and perhaps unsurprisingly I like most others failed my first attempt. The good news though is that the instructor thought I was actually pretty decent bar a few unfortunate mishaps and that I can retake the test next week.

The Errors I Apparently Made
1. Failing to stop fully for a stop sign - Honestly, I am adamant that I did stop for the damn sign. Unfortunately

The Wheels on the Car - Incoming Driving Test

Burger King + barbecue = better than expected

Here's a fun story. Between my brother and I, there's only one car between us. i drive it work if I have to and if I don't need it, he'll borrow it to drive to work. Today was one of those odd days where he needed to go to work, but I couldn't give him the car (I'm taking it into the shop in a little bit), and he can't walk to work or he'll risk being late.

He then bribed me with fast food so I can give him a ride myself. There's a Burger King in the same parking lot as the Kroger...
