Why I Sound Kooky When I Speak

Lately, I've been experiencing all kinds of stress. From going through all kinds of berserk moments to complications in my living situation. Anyone who ever talks to me, will know that I'm the type of girl with all kinds of true crazy stories. I'm the type of girl that makes insane people look normal.

Every so often, I get into situations that makes me wonder if I am secretly being filmed for a sitcom. Kind of like the Truman Show, except more dramatically funny.

Just the other day, I had such experience. One very late night, I was driving to Downtown Disney to pick up some friends that had come to visit me. Since I was stuck at work the whole day, I decided to drop them off at Disney. The plan was to get out of work, pick them up and go back home, but plans never come out as expected.

On my way to pick up my friends, one of my tires blew out. I didn't notice and so I kept driving on the highway until I got to Disney. That's when things got worse...


In Downtown Disney, 10 minutes later....


Of course, it wasn't just a flat tire you could easily repair. In fact, it was irreparable. Luckily, I had a spare tire.



Unfortunately, the tire ended up being the wrong replacement tire for my car. So we decided to ask for help.




We did manage to find a good man, who just so happened to work at the chocolate store to help us out with  the tire, but that was after taking a taxi all the way to Walmart to buy a lug wrench (I didn't have one in my car). Of course there was nothing much to do since the tire was irreparable and it was around 1 a.m. so I couldn't just buy another tire.

Finally, after doing everything possible to fix the car, a man working at Downtown Disney decided to pay a taxi to take us home (I guess they aren't all puppets).

So I got back home with nothing, but the irreparable, flat tire. My car was left in hell Downtown Disney with the puppets security people.

The next morning...


I think some people actually took this as a joke on my FB, but what I had to deal with was much more serious. Especially, since I couldn't find anyone to give me a ride to Downtown Disney and had to take yet another taxi to the tire center. On top of that, rolling the tire on the side of the road, was becoming a little dangerous.




Well, needless to say, we did get to the tire place in a taxi and one of my friends did rescue me from having to spend 100 dollars on a taxi to Downtown Disney. My friends and I were finally able to put the new tire on my car and we were finally able to get back home with the car. Although, it was a horrible experience at the moment, it makes quite a comical story. Especially, if I emphasize the part where I was looking like a hobo carrying a tire down the streets of Orlando.

Of course, it wasn't the only thing that had happened to me, which only makes me sound even more kooky, but I'll leave the rest of the stories for another day.

I'm not sure what I was trying to say, but this also proves that I DO sound kooky when I speak.


I should really consider starting my own 'the shit Hanny says' page.

  1. I would to not need a car. I fought an epic battle against mine this morning because I thought my rear window break light was out. But, it wasn't. Turns out that warning light means any one of a dozen little lights on my car could be out. Cars suck.

    And the worst part is I don't have any drawing talent like you do to tell the story in a funny way!

    1. I agree! Cars do suck!! It drives me absolutely crazy. It is bad enough that in the U.S we rely so much on cars.

      Thanks :D

  2. Oh man. I have crazy things happen to me all the time too. Luckily, I have a ton of people who would come pick me up if I needed to. My car is so old she's gonna die any day now, and I'm not looking forward to a car payment, since I haven't had one in 6 years.

    As for the silly stuff you say, I could have a whole blog about the weird stuff that comes out of my mouth too.

  4. I'm seriously afraid of flat tires. For real. My only reaction to this whole thing would be tears. And maybe a running nose. Just a hot mess.

  5. Hey I'd be tempted to pet a raccoon too. I've only seen someone switch a tire in real life once, and I'm not sure I could repeat the process. I have however paid through the nose for taxis. Not a pleasant experience. Disney is one of the worst places to break down, there's no escape. If you don't get out they make you part of the park. Thankfully it didn't come to that, and things didn't end too badly.

  6. I feel ya gal! I feel ya! I hear ya too! It's things like this that keep me living in a very small low population city in Wisconsin. I have extra folks to be able to call upon for a ride to save the taxi fare and if nobody is home or nobody is answering, I got my own two feet to carry me back home (unless it is -32 windchill after a four foot snow storm, that is.)

    I swear I know you speak the truth because I believe that over 80% of living is like having fallen into Shakespeare's "Comedy of Errors" thingy, a 'punked' reality tv or 'candid camera' show, or a 'really life' sitcom. What can we do? Keep on keepin' on! YES! You keep writing on about it all. WE NEED IT! I'm your friend @grammakaye on twitter.

    1. Sometimes I wish I lived in a small town, I would have just walked myself to where I needed to go.

      I believe Shakespeare had some truth in his stories, when he decided to write tragedies. Life does seem to feel like we have fallen in the "Comedy of Errors", but you are right what can we do? only thing is to accept it and just laugh about it.

  7. You made my day! Laughed all the way through your post, sorry! Esp, the puppet disney guy and the parody of the happiest place on earth. Once while at Disneyland in California, I witness a yelling match of a man and woman in front of their 3-4 yr old daughter that was bawling as she witnessed her parents fighting ... and I thought "this is the happiest place on earth?"

  12. Who knew Disney would be the worst place on earth to get a flat! I'm so sorry this happened to you. And shame on them for not helping you out!

    PS I write weird stuff no one thinks is true all the time. Sadly, it is usually all true.

  13. AAA? Seriously, its so worth the cost of membership.

    Also, the first time I drove from Baltimore to Nashville by myself (age 18, wtf was my mom thinking letting me do it?!) the flappy thing above my tire came off, and I ended up at a truck stop with some guy who could have been in ZZ Top tying my car back together with bailing twine...

  16. I am glad everything worked out in the end. Every time something has happened to my car, no one stopped to help. A few years ago, a blew a tire in the middle of summer. I had no cell, so I had to walk 17 miles to get home. Men would drive past me and whistle or ask if I wanted to party. Oh how I wished one of them would have crashed into a little tree.

  18. Another great post! Although I am sure it was miserable when it was happening, it DOES make a great blog post. So all is not lost! Maybe the Disney sign is supposed to say "Happiest Place in The World (and if it is not, it will sure as heck make a great blog post later! so enjoy!)"

    Yeah, I am pretty sure that is there slogan.

  24. Oh my goodness, Hanny! :-o What an experience!

    I regularly have more than my share of ridiculous things happen to me too--including an unhappy Disney experience. I guess the good news for people like us is that our haphazard personal lives give us ample material for our blogs. LOL

  25. That sounds just awful. In an emergency, I find that 99% of people are just plain useless.

    Also, I petted a raccoon once. On accident. I came home late, it was dark, and I thought he was my cat. Oddly enough, the raccoon didn't mind. I did, though, so I slipped inside before he changed his mind about the whole situation and gave me rabies...
