Would you say this was a bad day??

  1. Let me begin at the beginning.....of yesterday. I woke yesterday and shortly after, my hubby tells me that he wrecked our truck...we've had it less than a year BTW. He was working off duty at Wal-Mart overnight and was leaving at about 0500. As he was starting to leave (in uniform), he noticed some teenagers in the parking lot. He was looking ahead at them, not directly in front of himself, and didn't notice the short, yellow, METAL pole in the lot in front of him. Obviously the pole won. (see attachments) The truck could be in the shop from 2 weeks to a month or more. We should get a damage report today. Sadly, that was just number 1 for the day.

    Number 2 occured at IHOP. We stopped there to eat while running errands r/t the accident. When the waiter brought out our breakfast, he set mine down on the table, then proceeded to dump my husbands food on the table. I mean, the plate was literally turned upside-down.

    If all that wasn't enough, we have number 3 to contend with now. Due to the fact that my hubby and I work nights, we were up late last night. We had started cleaning the house and my hubby was doing the laundry. The washer dumped the first load of water in the cycle and that started a chain reaction. Both bathrooms in our house backed up!!! The bathtubs had standing water, the toilets bubbled...then overflowed when my non-handyman husband decided to "try them out" to see if they would flush. They didn't.

    I am waiting for Roto-Rooter now as I type. I should be in bed because I have to work tonight. Just thought I'd share my day with all of you. I know it could be worse......but I hope the theory holds true that these things happen in threes.

    Wish me some luck other than 'bad luck'.
