The kind of strength that can only shear embarrassment can cause So I was driving to work today in my brand new ** Volvo. Then as I turn in to the construction site I hear a loud crash. Turns out that they have dug away 20% of the road where the mainroad connects to the construction area and left is a 1 meter deep hole, and my car now has one wheel in the air as I drove over the edge. Leaving my car stranded. I get out of the car and look around. No one has seen it yet. so I jump down into the hole and with strength that only shear embarrassment can cause. I managed to lift the front of the car out of the hole and get it back on the road. This was followed by me chassing down the car and hiting the break with my hand to stop it from rolling any further. I noticed a warning sign just before the hole. The warning sign was flat on the ground. Ran over by a dump truck earlier. Now people talk about strength that only a parent can muster when thier kid is in trouble. Or the kind of strength only madness can cause. But I have to say. Embarrassment has them all beat hands down.
