    My wife put her bare foot on my dashboard and I couldn't handle it!!
    Now, I swear there is a spot there that wasn't there before the placing of the foot on said dash.

    I hate having a short driveway with a sidewalk right at the end of it. Last Halloween was so nerve wracking.

    The neighbor's 6 year old grandson rode his bicycle into my garage ~ I was certain the handlebars would end up all along side my ride.
    I breathed a huge sigh of relief when she came to fetch him.

    I’m really curious as to how this thread got revived after six years. I know most of them do because someone searched for something technical, but this one has me confused.
    Did you do a search for what Tundra owners are afraid of?

    I got a scratch on the fender of my 2011 about two weeks after I got it, at exactly handlebar height. My daughter finally admitted to it about six months ago.

    It was her truck by then to give you an idea of how long she waited. I knew she was full of it to begin with, kind of like the other scratch at exactly the height of a Sonic menu that appeared a month after she started driving it.

    In my case it's a necessity as the garages in my neighbourhood are too short. At least mine is more like a $35k vehicle.

    We all know really well, humans are going to be humans. That means a few things will fail and collapse. Truth is we are very lucky it doesn't occur even more frequently.

    Let a bird fly in and hit your rear window at about 50 mph or so. Happened to me once and almost broke my eardrum. Single cab pickup, so right behind my ear. Never know when the unthinkable will occur.

    I was coaching a baseball team full of 12-13 year old kids. However, an adult coach for another team is the one who put a dent in the hood of my 2010 Tundra. I have had it for 12 years now and it is the only dent in the truck. Still makes me mad.

    Nueve Tundra is clearly using the "way back machine" to revive ancient threads for nefarious purposes.

    Distraction is the new opium.

    Wife: why are you parking so far away, I don’t wanna walk that far
    Me: because I don’t want people parking next to me or around me
    Later that day, come out of the mall to everyone parked around me out at the end of lot…this is why I’m that guy that takes up a few spots! Don’t care what anyone has to say about that I’ll continue to do it

    How about a bee flying into your mouth while riding a motorcycle at 40 mph? Interesting experience.
