Okay, picture it: It's a lovely somewhat-spring-like morning. I had to run to the bank during plan time, because we were having Penny Wars at school, and I have an account at a bank that allows me to use the change-counting machine for not charge.
I'm on my way from the bank, a few strange coins that didn't want to go through the machine are in my pocket. I have the brilliant idea of stopping by Sonic to get an orange juice (because orange juice with crushed ice just ROCKS), and thus have some change to replace the change that wouldn't go through the machine.
I buy my orange juice with no problems at all. I put the straw in and have a sip. I have a drink carrier-thingy in the car, and I open it. I set the Styrofoam-like drinking container in the carrier, and vaguely notice it isn't a tight fit--a bit the opposite, really. However, I was getting ready to pull out into traffic, and didn't have time for such minor details.
I turn into traffic, and my precious, precious, PRECIOUS drink goes flipping over onto the passenger floorboard...
...and it lands "head first"...
...and the straw is forced up through the bottom of the container...
...and suddenly I've got this container that is leaking--scratch that--GUSHING orange juice from both ends.
Now, a little about my car: The driver's side window doesn't roll down.
So, keeping in mind that I've just entered traffic (and it wasn't THAT bad, but still, there were many vehicles I could have easily hit while driving and dealing with this container), and I'm holding this thing in my hand. Orange juice is getting on me, on the floorboard, on the drink caddy, and on my little catch-all between the seats.
Again, I can't just toss it out my window, as it won't roll down.
The up side? I had to deliver pizza that night, so I'd brought a change of pants with me.
All in all, I found this to be an enjoyable event, but I'd rather not repeat it.
Let this be a lesson to you that you should never trust a drink to stay in the drink caddy.
