Finding a Way to Get "Unstuck", Part 5


A friend of mine got stuck in a snowbank alongside the road a few winters back. I’m Dan Hansen and this is a Minute at RepcoLite.

With nobody around to help, he tried to push it out himself but While he was close to getting it out, he just couldn’t do it. 

Then he had a brainstorm. He put the car in drive and figured he’d let it idle itself forward while he pushed . . . then, once it was free, he’d hop in the driver seat and everything would be fine. Well, it worked and it didn’t work. 

With the car in drive, it tried to creep forward. When he pushed from behind, it came out of the snowbank and crept back onto the road–brilliant. However, when he walked to the door to let himself in, he found it had locked with the keys inside. 

As the  car continued to move down the road and with himself unable to get back into it . . . he had to push it back into the ditch. Which he did . . . watching in horror as the car slowly rolled over onto it’s side. In the end, he needed a tow truck to get it out  I LOVE that story. Tomorrow we’ll connect it to being stuck in our homes. I’m Dan Hansen and that’s a minute at RepcoLite.
