Have any of your Home Improvement/DIY projects ever gone horribly

I had replaced the waterline coming into my house. The hole in the ground was about 8 ft deep and led right up to the corner of the porch. I back filled the hole with extra dirt and wanted to pack it to avoid having a sink hole right outside the back door. The heaviest thing I had to use as a packer was my 22,000 lbs Kenworth. As I was backing up close to the house I decided I should get someone to watch and guide my movements because I couldn't see right behind the truck (blind spot). The only one around was my girlfriend at the time and she was watching her favorite soap on TV. She was quite annoyed that I made her come outside to help. I showed her what I was doing and told her to give me a hand signal so I would stop in time. She stood there with her arms crossed and tapping her foot, with a scowl on her face. I backed up and stopped when it looked like I was getting too close, and asked how much room I had left. She yelled “lots, hurry up, I'm missing my show !!”. I backed up about 2 more ft and she was standing beside my door yelling ” You hit the house asshole, are you happy now ??”. I jumped out of my rig and went around back to look. The frame of my truck was about 1 1/2 ft into the corner of the porch wall. She went back to her TV, nattering “the asshole didn't need me, he could have done that all by himself. F'n assholes and their F'n trucks!”. That cost me another $1500. and she wasn't around much longer either. 🙂
