I backed out of the drive way being careful not to hit the car on my right the big truck on the street behind me and the little car that would be behind me when I got to the street. I pulled forward and went over the curb, wow, I’m thinking…I didn’t think I was close to the curb at all, and it seemed bigger than I thought it was!
I drive another 10 feet and hear this weird noise so I stop, open my door thinking I would just stick my head under the car to see what happened…well…see this box spring mattress! It was under my car, so I put the car in park, walk over the box spring bend over and start pulling the huge bed from the front then from the back. I can’t even pull it out from under the car just a little bit. My car still running in the middle of the street, I’m late to breakfast, I’m wondering how my car cleared the thing. I sit there for a few seconds trying to figure out if I am going to back over it, exactly how I went over it in the first place but then I decide I will shimmy the car, forward, back, forward back like I’m stuck in the snow until I can get it out from under the car. When that was done, I drag the mattress back down the street and leave it sort of where it was.
I don’t live in a neighborhood where this is the norm, I was reminded that it was there, just didn’t see it and to top it off, it was a metal box spring, that baby was barely dented!!!
I call the owner who was disappointed that a stranger did steal it over night, I wasn’t sure how disappointed they would be that nobody would want it now and they told me they wished they could have captured that on video. I can’t stop laughing, how could I not see a queen sized box spring? And why did I think it was the curb?
