I got lost and ran into a ditch

I like living down south where it is very warm during the winter.

  • Even though a lot of people are getting snow right now, it’s still warm, sunny, and humid down here by the water.

We have had a bit of rain. I don’t like driving in the rain, because it reminds me of a time when I was living up north and I got stuck in a ditch. I was 18 years old at the time and delivering pizzas for a local restaurant. There were no cell phones back then and I had to use a map to find my way around. It probably took twice as long to make a delivery back then, just because I had to continually look at the map to make sure I was moving in the right direction. I got lost and ran right into a ditch. It was raining pretty hard and I didn’t realize that the road was going to turn sharply to the left. I ended up in front of a residential house. The owner of the house worked for a heating and AC repair service. The guy used his heating and AC repair service truck to pull my car out of the ditch. I tried to turn the engine on, but the car wouldn’t go anywhere. The heating and AC repair service truck owner stayed with me until a tow truck could arrive to pick up my car. His wife made me a cup of coffee and a sandwich. It took almost 90 minutes for the tow truck driver to pick up my car. I’ll never forget that day.
