FRIDAY FUNNIES

Friday Funnies is a chance to share your wild and crazy stories. Whether it’s a personal story or just something that strikes you as funny.

Let’s laugh and have some fun, but keep it clean, cuz I’m a watchin’ **wink wink**

 

Yet another story involving my sweet, sweet hubby while he was out in Colorado on an internship for his Physical Therapy degree. He and his brother headed to the store for some shopping. After pulling into the parking stall Charlie turned the key and pulled it out of the ignition.

Pretty normal, right? Not this time.

The car kept running.

The engine hummed as if the key was still in the ignition. He looked at his brother to make sure he wasn’t hallucinating, but Tim confirmed the car was still running. 

Does the movie Christine come to mind?  

Here’s the problem. There wasn’t much gas left, and they had a long ride home. So, he drove the possessed car to a gas station and fearfully filled it up hoping they didn’t blow the gas station (and themselves) to Estes Park. Once the car was parked in the newly repaired garage (see last Friday’s Funny story for more details on that), he let the car run until it died from lack of fuel.

  1. Kat–that’s funny!

    Sarah–Oh, I saw quite a few men crying, it warmed my heart. Oh, first of all, props for bringing a new couple from your church to the show…second, I’m glad they agreed to hang with you again.. LOL

    Mom B–thanks for commenting….This story cracks me up every time I hear it…..:-)

  2. An addendum to the ‘possessed’ car story is that when Charlie parked the car in Grandmother’s garage and left it running, she awakened in the middle of the night. Hearing the car still running, she woke her grandson and asked him what was going on. Difficult to explain and funny, once morning arrived.

  3. When my husband and I went to see Fireproof last week, we invited a new couple from church to come along. They are a very nice couple, and I wanted to make a good impression, so I politely asked my husband not to embarass me with any of his fart jokes or other comments about bodily functions.

    The night was going well, until a touching moment came up in the movie and he started to blubber like a baby. It was so loud, people began to turn around in their seats to gape at the girly-man crying behind them. And it didn’t help that none of the rest of us were needing any tissue.

    He tried to play it off like he was really laughing, but I knew better. Luckily, they called and invited us over to play games at their house this weekend. They said they wanted to give Chris an oppurtunity to regain some of his manhood!

  4. I once drove a Mustang that did something similar. You’d pull the key out and it would continue to sputter until it finally died.

    Here’s mine (it’s more of a cute factor): We were excited at how quickly our youngest daughter caught on to saying her bedtime and table prayers. Then one night at supper, we heard her saying, “Bless us O Lord and this circus…” (instead of these thy gifts). Hers probably fits better.
