How the heck does a recycling bin bust a hole in your tail light you ask? Well, apparently I hit the handle of the bin just right and it popped right through. I mean come on! How does that happen?? Ugh. I wasn't even going fast and I looked behind me. I told Chris it was in my blind spot. He disagreed. I swear it wasn't there...I mean why would I back into it on purpose?
What's crazy is that I always do a bike check in the garage before going anywhere in the summer. I've backed over a tricycle before. I really couldn't see that one...and well let's just say the trike wasn't quite the same after that. So, I did the bike check, put the carpet cleaner in the trunk, got buckled up, and started to leave...all the while looking in my mirrors for little ones who may decide to buzz past me on a bike or scooter. Maybe that was my problem...I was looking for kids, not big, blue recycle bins. Sigh.
So, yeah how awesome is that?! Not very, I know. Chris found the part online so, we're gonna order it and hopefully he can pick it up and get it installed before our vacation next week. Fingers crossed it's an easy install.
Here's a pic of the damage...
