The Best: It was finally my last day of work, and I was entering my 4 weeks of freedom before school. I also got to drive a Jaguar XJ6 during lunch today, and that was fun The Worst: On the way home, I got my own car into an accident. I was fine going into the corner, but when I stepped on the pedal to accelerate out of the curve, my car shifted down into first, and the extra torque spun my wheels, kicking my back end out from under the car. The traction control didn't do anything, and I couldn't get it back under control. I ended up in a field on the other side of a barbed wire fence. Luckiny, there were no other cars, and I was completely unhurt. However, the police (who never go on that road) just happened to make their 3rd appearance on Madden Rd. in 5 years today... I got ticketed, and they filed an accident report, not to mention we have a $1000 deductible.
