Hand-Control Driving


I was driving down my driveway

when my Smart car coasted to a stop
the hand-controls would not press the gas pedal but
would press the brake.

I called Hubs...

I said "the car will not go"
he said "where are you at?"
I said "in the driveway"
If he had looked out the door he would have seen me!

He soon found the problem....
the hand-controls have a locking device that neither of us knew about...now we know to watch out for that lock button in the future!

I am Thankful for a Hubs that can fix stuff
and rescue me in the driveway....
Oh, the little things!

What I know about cars you could put on the head of a pin! So, if I still drove, I'd be dong the same!
Peace,
Muff

I need to make a note of that! I hope to be switching to hand controls in my car soon ad my husband is NOT the mechanical type, he's a writer. :)

I was scared for a minute that it was broken!!!! Good that it was only the lock and your hubby is good with things like this!

Too funny! Not that your car wouldn't "go," but that you were still in the driveway. :)

Your hubby saved you lots of time and money! I'm glad you weren't on a busy road!

Wish I had a hubs to help me out but, until I do, it's me and AAA road assist! Glad to see all is well!

Having a husband who knows how to fix things is NOT a little thing. It is one great big blessing. Aren't we lucky?

P.S. My Monarch hand controls do not have that switch on them, then again, they are at least 21 years old. What brand do you have?

And aren't the little things sooooo frustrating. Glad it was soon solved.

Same goes for my hubby, he repairs almost everything in the house, from my sons toys to every parts of the house. So when something goes wrong, the first person I called is my hubby. Guess most husbands are born handyman of the house. Hahahah and glad they are too.
