The Y Files: Case of the Proverbial "Kick Me" Sign

'Y' as in Yes, I am losing my mind!

Case Number: 9834512 WQ
Current Status: Embarrassed

I ran some errands today: library, Costco, etc. When I got to the library I turned on my hazard lights while I dropped some overdue books in the book drop. I got back in the car and drove away. I didn't notice, until I got to Costco, that my hazard lights were still on. I guess this was
bound to happen eventually, considering that it's not uncommon for our car to randomly make blinker-like clicking sounds, even when the blinkers aren't on. This is a problem that Jacob fixed 2 months ago, by replacing the hazard switched (see Car Talk). It lasted a record 2 weeks before the random clicking started again. And for the record: No, we haven't picked out a new car yet; and Yes, our car has started leaking coolant again. But I digress. So there I was driving obliviously across town with my hazard lights on, dripping coolant like a leaky faucet, animatedly singing "If Your Happy, and you Know It!" with my girls at the top of my lungs.

What a dork! I'm totally embarrassed. I might as well have walked around Costco with "Kick Me" sign on my back. Photo Courtesy of Ella

Your having a rough week... it would've been great if you had found your cookie cutters at Costco. (cue some really scary music!)
