I used to laugh whenever I saw people getting their cars blessed at Shinto shrines in Japan. Well, I am laughing no longer. Since I bought my Prius two years ago, my eco-conscious move has caused nothing but mishaps:
- a log dislodged by a 18 wheeler came hurling at me on the freeway and hit the car
- I was backed into in a parking lot by a guy talking on his cell
- a construction cone got lodged in the front grill when a truck hit the cone and made it fly into my lane
- someone side swiped me from the lane next to mine and drove me up onto the curb.
And now, I find out that I am driving a speeding death trap with sticky pedals.
I never had this much dumb luck with any other car before, so I can only believe it’s the car that’s cursed.
Now, I am in desperate need to find a place to get my car Shinto exorcised. And while I’m at it, I might as well get my laptop blessed. Maybe it will help me write better scripts on it.
Anybody know of a place?
