Went up a dirt/rock hill recently, after scoping it out from the road. Went up one side straight and expected to come down the other side the same way, but the hill was sloped differently than it looked like from the road, ended up having to slowly inch down the hill sideways with me and my buddy leaning all our weight over to one side of the cab to keep from flipping.

Not really a proper oh-shit moment, just piss poor planning. But sure was scary.

With the way he punctuates, I think he did. But I had a moment like that cause the shop that put my trans in fucked up.

A long time ago me and a buddy were both driving home from work. While I was still behind him he stopped at a stop sign just ahead of me. When it was my time to stop, my brakes just mushed to the floor. I remember him just dawdling like he was waiting for me to catch up or something. I just kept thinking "GO! GO! GO!!" He just kept sitting there at the stop sign so I swerved to avoid hitting him and ran right over the stop sign. I remember looking back at it after I cleared it and it's just barely hovering above the ground like "OK nevermind."
