Too Funny

So today is my moms birthday. She called me at noon upset because she'd been stuck in front of hardware store for an hour with my dad because his truck died. She want a new wheelbarrow for her b'day, so my dad took her to pick one out. Well she calls me and asks if I could come get her. I said of course I'll be right there. So I load up myself and the dog and head over. I pull up right behind my dads dead 78 Ford work truck. My parents dog is playing in the bd of the truck so I put my dog in the bed too so they can play together.
My dad is under the hood with a tow truck driver and they both want to get the truck started because the guy parked next to my dad needs a tow too lol and the tow truck driver doesn't want to come back for the 2nd truck.
So I'm talking to my mom leaning against the truck right next to the exhaust when BOOM. Stupid truck backfired sooo loud my mom still can't hear. All the birds vanished. The dogs bailed from the truck and started walking away down the sidewalk. People came out of the stores to see what happened. State Parks pulled up afraid someone was shooting in the street and asked my dad if he should call for back up. Once I stopped laughing I caught the dogs and went into the store to say hi to a friend. I walked in and everyone stopped and stared so I said loudly 'yep that was my dads truck!' and the store fell into a laughing fit (this was a hardware store so it was all grown men rolling around laughing lol). So after saying hi to my friend, i head back out. They got the truck started, but the backfire blew a seal off the muffler so it was running really loud. My dad left and driver towed the other truck away. I gave my mom a hug and asked her if she was happy with her wheelbarrow. That got me a slap on the arm lol. So then I took her out for brunch (crab eggs benedict with a champagne hollandaise sauce) for her birthday. I told her at least it was birthday to remember!!! I don't think she found the same humor in it as I did.... LOL

I still can't stop giggling lol. I think the best part was the poor tow truck driver. He was so red because he thought it was his fault and it was the loudest backfire he had ever heard. Turns out my dad had flooded it during that hour and it was ignition that was the problem. So when they bypassed the ignition it went boom lol. My poor mom was just standing there in a daze and when I asked her if she was ok all I got was a 'What?!?!'. She can't take her b'day phone calls because she can't really hear people on the phone right now...
