“And then my car just like, whoop! Into the median.”

What’s the most valuable thing you’ve ever broken? One of our team members broke their laptop on the first day of their study abroad. Ooh, that’d be scary. Um, well, like one winter I, um — what do they call it? Hold on. Totaled a car? So I had a little small two-door car and I was driving to work at a big box retail store. And I didn’t realize that, like, hey, the — what are they called? The on-ramps are icier than, like, regular road. So the regular road was fine, and then I get onto the on ramp, and it’s just like, an ice slide. And luckily nobody was like right there at that particular time in the highway. And then my car just like, whoop! Into the median, um, and it just — I mean, it would have cost more to fix it than what it did to buy the car. So it was totaled and plus the air bag went off and stuff. Um, and so then I had to carpool and take the bus for a very long time after that. And so I think that’s one of the reasons why I’m just so cautious with driving and cars and things like that now is because I know how easy, how quick it is to like, “Hey, I’m in control of the car — no I’m not, and there is nothing that I can do about it.”
