Dad is an old man driver

The other day my brother and dad go to get the car washed. They go to one of those places where you sit in the car while it goes through. At this one, rather than drive through, a hook is attached to your car and pulls you through the car wash. My dad’s talking to my brother as the car wash ends. The hook disengages and the car stops. Well, it would stop if they weren’t on a hill. But they were. So they start rolling toward a large group of workers. My dad’s too… er… smart… to notice until the last minute at which point he slams on the brakes. Everything’s okay though.
My brother found this story hilarious and decided to tell people. A few days after it happened, he’s telling the story to my mom and stepdad Pete over dinner. They were eating out at a busy restaurant. Pete has a large bite of food in his mouth just as James is getting to the part where the car rolls straight towards the workers. Only he says “and we rolled right towards all the Mexicans!” At this Pete begins to choke and sputter. This turned James’ story from the usual story (little kid trying stupidly to tell a good story) into a very funny story. Especially because Pete’s Mexican too. Man, James is so lame. How amusing for me.
