Dumbest accidents/mistakes you've made as a driver

    I had an incredibly stupid accident last week that I intend to never make again. Ran into something on company property. I'm only a year into full time driving and have done other things so far like leaving my backdoor open and losing a couple packages (backtracked and recovered all of them), delivering late air because I initially went to the wrong street, getting a customer complaint because I parked unlawfully... etc. Very humbling. But I'll overcome.

    So? Any other good accounts of screw ups?

    I pulled into a car dealership parking lot that was a sheet of ice. Slid into the new Volvo of the VP of the dealership. Guys in receiving got a good laugh out of that. They said it couldn't have happened to a better guy.

    Also, delivered on an island community. The entrance had a low overhang, so I was supposed to enter in the exit gate. Totally forgot one day, and drove right into the overhang. The guard was not amused.

    I hope I'm a perfect little driver for the rest of my career. I hate screwing up.

    Probably just had the annual PMI done too.

    Or written up for a burning smell.

    Mechanic probably wrote in the DVIR. "Adjusted burning smell" parts on order.
