The funniest thing that ever happened to me in high school was also one of my most embarrassing moments. I had just got my first car. It was a 1977, and the year was 1988. I was a senior in high school. I had worked and saved for the car, so I was proud of it, never mind the rust spots. I pulled into the parking lot of my high school one early afternoon during lunch time, as I was allowed to leave the campus because I was part of the Junior Achievement program.Additional information can be found at . Any way, as I pulled in all eyes were on me and every student from the ninth grade to the seniors were outside for lunch. It was a beautiful day, until I parked in a spot in the middle of everyone and turned the key to turn off my car, and it refused to turn off. It sputtered, and spatted, and revved, and spit out a puff of smoke and then finally in the loudest noise I had ever heard, it back fired. Oh, the laughter, and screams, and hollering that followed. What was I to do. I could not hide. So, being the fun loving person that I am, I got out and bowed gracefully and laughed with the crowd.
