My car is 13 years old and in decent condition, except for when it breaks occasionally. It's the color of cement and has a dent in the roof from when a tree fell on it during a wicked storm on 4th of July a couple of years ago.
  1. I was driving home one night into my apt complex, my music blaring as per uje. I heard a metal sort of sound, but didn't see anything, so I didn't really give it much thought.
  2. I did notice that a car was following me.
  3. It was all rusted, taped up mirrors, and different panels were different colors. I think originally this car was supposed to be red?
  4. Again, didn't stress about it until it followed me into my specific lot and I had never seen that car in my lot before. I pull into my spot and the car stops behind me, horizontal to my perpendicular situation.
  5. The window rolls down. My window rolls down. It's a girl, looks about my age.
  6. "Hey! Just wanted to let you know that you lost your hubcap back there!"
  7. "Oh. Thank you for letting me know!"
  8. Windows roll up, she drives away. I notice more of how crappy her car looks, but I felt like we were kindred spirits, since clearly my car wasn't keeping it together either.
  9. But it was neat because it was ladies helping ladies in our shitty cars, just trying to make it to the next day.
  10. 🎸🔥
