Over the course of the last few weeks, a few of our colleagues have admitted to some rather interesting bowel movement incidents on the job. Well, fellow auto journos, now we want to hear your story: What's the most embarrassing thing that's happened in a car that isn't yours?
I'm yet to shit myself or pee in a press car, or really lose bodily control of any kind. There is the time that I took a Chevy Colorado off-road, and I mean very, very lightly off road, like in a dirt parking lot, and hit a bit of a bump. I drove it back, did a walk around, saw nothing wrong, and then went off to the bar.
Then I got an email the next morning with a picture asking who ripped off the front splitter and got it super muddy (the mud looks like poop). It was me, and that just shows how observant I was that day and just how good I am at offroading. I profusely apologized.
That's obviously mild compared to bowel evacuations and bodily issues. Ever have anything crazy happen in a press car and want to share? Let us know in the comments below. Want to stay anonymous but still want to share? Register for one of our 'burner' accounts and comment below.
