Damn that Bump!

Damn that Bump!

We were driving through a parking lot that had bumps in it to slow cars down.  Now, I hate those bumps ... especially since I've been through several surgeries.  To this day ... a bump can still cause me to hurt.  It goes through my body ... very painful.

Skip was driving and as he drove slowly over each bump, he told me he knew the bumps hurt me ... he also, knew I didn't like them.  I didn't say anything and tensed up ... for another painful ... bump.

Several bumps in a row ... hurt so bad!  I tensed up, and as soon as he drove over the next bump I told Skip ... "that hurt so bad!"

What was so funny ...  that bump and several more after that one ... were just ... painted on the pavement!

Damp that bump!  It didn't hurt at all!

Note by this Author:    Funny how something can be painted to look like the real thing ... and affect one just like the real thing!  Ha! Ha! Ha!

  1. I am so glad those bumps were painted on the pavement. At least they didn't hurt-----this time. People slow down for what they "think" they see. If people drove like they should drive--bumps would not be needed. I am glad you did not have to endure more pain! Love, Ms. Nancy

  2. That is the way things are. Once you get something in your mind it's hard to get it out. Glad you didn't have to hurt too much.
