A Failure to Communicate..

We were flying to Pittsburgh for Christmas with our two adult children, and had driven our son’s Jeep, since it had the most room for luggage. We parked in a lot that was a few blocks away from the airport. The only thing was, the Jeep had to be started using a screwdriver along with the key (long story). My husband made the arrangements at the reception desk and when they asked for the key to the vehicle, we realized, ooops! So my son carefully instructed the lot attendant how to start the Jeep using the screw driver.

Just one problem… when we got back a few days later, that guy wasn’t on duty, and he hadn’t bothered to instruct anyone else on the fine points of the key and screwdriver trick! No one could start it to bring it to us! So, of course, Bubba had to accompany the attendant back into the lot and start it himself.

Seemed appropriate. It was one final laugh for a trip that was full of them.
