Its post first blizzard 2014 in New York. Wife goes to work during the week and is on call to work during the weekend, needing to leave the house at 7AM. When she comes home Sunday at 12PM, she drives down the hill towards the garage, makes her turn to enter into her spot of the two car garage and BAMM, hits the left corner edge of the garage, causing severe damage to the cinder block of the foundation.
How did this happen? Ice on the driveway.
The car is fine. The garage is not, view pix.
Luckily wifey called a guy, who helped push part of the garage door rail back into alignment so that at the very least the automatic door could be closed. Hubby states its 100% wifey fault as wifey could have missed the garage by turning the wheels out of the way.
However, hubby has never parked wifey’s car into this garage (or the previous garage – wife always gets the spot that is more challenging to pull into, despite the car being 2 sizes bigger, go fig) and wifey is not prepared to take driving lessons from someone that cannot drive a meaningful distance in reverse without having to put it back in drive to realign oneself. Who drives a mini sport with an automatic transmission? Hubby parks his car straight in from the driveway. Wifey on the other hand has to turn to the left to then align onself to pull straight into the garage.
Hubby perseverated the past days about ensuring the driveway would not develop ice. But alas, he has to fulfill his ‘do nothing Sunday’. Wifey admits to 90% of the blame to take. But now wifey thinks this is inappropriately disproportionate.
The question is and the newlyweds need a verdict: what percentage of fault do wifey and hubby each have?
