What a f**king DISASTER tonight turned out to be!!!
I changed into my gym clothes and left work all geared up for a good workout at the gym, got about 15 minutes down the road, cruising along at 70km's an hour when I try to slow down for the built up traffic ahead of me and BANG - this massive noise comes from the front passenger side wheel of the car and I start skidding for the guard rail on the centre median strip of the highway...
Me being a not so mechanically minded female assumed I had a flat tire - so I ring H2B and ask him to come rescue me and suss out the damage (I didn't get out to look myself in fear of being taken out by a truck as I was only JUST off the road - arse end still on the highway a bit)...
So while I'm waiting for him to turn up, an old guy on a motorbike pulls over to see if I'm okay... I say "yeah mate, just waiting for my other half to get here and change the tire". He tells me I'm going to need more than a change of the tyre because my whole wheel is now turned on a 90 degree angle to the car... GREAT!! Just what I wanted to hear - NOT!!
I slowly feel my workout at the gym being taken away from me... by this time it's nearing 6pm and the gym closes at 7pm.
Chris finally arrives - tells me that the front end has completely f**ked itself and he needs to go back and get the tow truck from work. So I'm left on the side of the road again..
A few minutes later I see the flashing lights of a policeman on his motorbike pulling up behind me. He decides he's going to wait with me until Chris returns with the truck... Mind you it's peak hour - and traffic report time on the news and the radio... I look up - there's the traffic helicopters... I ring my mum - YAY I've made it on the news!!!
"Broken down car holding up traffic southbound on the Ipswich Motorway"
Could my day get any worse?!?!?!?
So now that I've gotten all that off my chest - I'm absolutely spewing!! Didn't get to go to the gym... Didn't get to buy a new set scales.. Didn't get to have my pork and veges for dinner... I had to settle with spending my evening making small talk with a police officer and a toasted ham sandwich for tea!!
Not cool, not cool at all...
Thankfully there are 3 other cars here for me to drive... Let's see if I can actually make it (incident free) to the gym tomorrow night!!!
