Kat's townhome (where I'm currently living) is being repaired. When it was originally built, certain waterproofing steps were either skipped or half-completed. Each of the buildings in her unit is having all of the siding removed, all of the sealant underneath replaced and all of the windows resealed. Because of this, there are ditches being dug, low-paid workers ambling around, fork-lifts in the fire lane, etc. Up until last night, it hasn't been a problem. Sometime yesterday afternoon, the construction workers decided that the best place for 10 crates of their supplies was about 5 feet behind Kat's driveway!

When I got home yesterday, I noticed it in annoyance and then didn't think about it while I got ready for my doubleheader hockey game. As I was frantically getting ready (trying to remember extra water and snacks for my team, I'm such a good captain), I completely forgot about the crates. I backed right into them!

My rear bumper now has a good gouge in two place, one of which is about as big as a golf ball. There is a bit of hexagonal mesh below the bumber and that is scraped as well. I'm not sure if I want to get it fixed just yet.

I'm such a dork; I just applied for and received the license plate OPENSOB.
