I'm giggling to myself as I write this........it happened on Thursday. I was rushing to get to the gym to work out with a new trainer. As I pulled up to the gym there was a place right in front. Wow, that never happens. I usually have to park on a side street and walk back to the gym.
So, I started to zip into the place, since I was almost late. I was trying to be careful not to get on the sidewalk when IT happened. My car sank into a hole and totally encased the front left tire.
Holy smokes, was I surprised! I got out and looked. Yup, my tire had disappeared into a deep hole. So I tried backing up - ha - no way.
A few people were watching from the doorway of the gym. Out came the trainer who was waiting for me. He took one look at my face and made the little sign that means "Just a minute" and went back in. I stood there, not too worried, because things usually work out in Mexico. At that moment out came five body builders. Big burly guys. They told me to start up the car. I did. And with that they lifted up the front end of my car and I went backward out of the hole...........OMG, I so wanted them to wait a minute so I could take their photo, but I knew that was too much to ask. They were all laughing and saluting and showing me their muscles. I too was laughing.
I moved the car to the street. Went in, did the "workout from hell", but with a smile inside my heart and a grimace on my face.
IF I had been in the states, I probably would have had to get a tow truck and pay a zillion dollars.
It's so cool the silly little day to day things that you never forget. This will be one of them.
ONLY in Mexico.
