Vacation Memory #3

3. Los Angeles, CA(2002)-

Car Chaos- We rented a Durango for our traveling needs from San Francisco to San Diego. This was obviously too much car for my father. He was unable to handle the size of this SUV at many times. This started in a parking garage where he scraped the whole side on a wall during a turn. While checking on the scrape he locked the keys in the car and we had to call a locksmith to unlock the door.
Also, while visiting a comedy club on the strip dad gave the keys to a valet. The valet parks it for us and then brings it back when our time was done in the club. We get in the car and Dad cant figure out how to unlock the emergency break. Dad gets out of the car and starts pushing on the break to get it to release. The car immediately releases and my mom, me and my friend Blake in the Durango start flying toward the extremely heavy traffic on the Strip. We are screaming at the top of our lungs and seeing our lives flash before our eyes. The valet, who obviously for his day job is a super hero, flies into the car, jumps into the driver seat and slams on the break and saves us all!!! Dad with his head down says nothing and we drive away.
