Things Didn’t Go According To Plan…

So, the plan was all laid out for me to attend a baseball card show Sunday afternoon.  A quick trip to the grocery store with the wife and kids in the morning; Then we would split up around Noon and head our separate ways for a few hours.  She was taking the boys X-mas shopping while I would be heading to the card show in Dania Beach.

Then, it happened.  My garage door only went up about 9-12 inches.  Ok, hit the button again and see if it works this time.  NOPE.  Ok, 3rd time is a charm right??  NOPE.  Man, what a pain in the ass this is.  Luckily our cars were outside, but was I just supposed to leave?? 

Two hours and 2 trips to Sears later and I got virtually nowhere…  Then I finally got the damn door to open.  What a relief!!!  By now it was close to 2:30 in the afternoon and our dinner plans were rapidly approaching.  So, I completely missed out on the show.  No cards for me.  No shopping for me.  No afternoon break from the stress of being a homeowner.  Just me and my damn garage door opener…


I will have to wait until next time I guess.  Luckily these card shows are monthly so the wait isn’t terribly long.  I was really hoping that I would be able to scoop up some cards to send out for autographs…  Looks like I’ll be buying something this week on the web…

  1. Ugh, sorry to hear. Same thing happen to me a few months ago, except it happened on a Monday and cars were in the garage. Son of a..

  2. I have a three-month wait between card shows, so I probably would’ve just left for the show. Yeah, I’m delinquent.
