My life is a frikkin sitcom.

Did you know that a shift knob on an automatic car can come right off?
No?
Me neither.
And if you did, why didn't you tell me???? Then I wouldn't have had the stupified look on my face this morning as I lifted my hand, and the shift knob was still CONNECTED TO IT! Daddy found it hilarious. It's not funny asshole. The screw that is supposed to hold the thing together was no where on the floor of my car, Daddy thinks I may have vaccuumed it up yesterday I would have noticed a screw but the shift knob was fine when I drove home. So someone has to be playing some sick joke (I leave my doors unlocked, yeah, yell at me.) or the car likes to eat important screws. Daddy had to finagle a screw from my stash in my glove compartment (thank God we save screws we find everywhere.) until we can get a good look under the seats later on. He already called me to ask how the shifter was. (Not how I was, THE SHIFTER! LOL!)
So yeah. Funny. Thing is I don't think the boss would believe me if I told him that was why I was late today....

ummmm, yes, I knew the shifter knob came off.

Had I realized that you were going to take apart the car today, I would have called in advance and asked for photos...

However, we here at the playground hope YOU are doing better...

dennis- what's funny is my hubby works non-stop with cars, both at work and as a hobby, and I know cars. I know everything comes off. But MY shifter? not supposed to...
Would have made a great photo-entry now that you mention it!
