We can't keep anything nice

Dan sold the old woodburning furnace this weekend, and used the loader tractor to get it on the purchaser's flatbed trailer. The tractor burst a hydraulic hose, spraying the windshield with fluid. Dan put his brand new bike in the tractor bucket, so he could ride it back home from the farm's workshop and make repairs later.

He didn't get very far before he heard a crunch and a bump. The bike had fallen out and he had run over it.

The frame is bent. Everything is bent. There's no saving it. He went to the local bike shop and purchased one exactly like it.  No one will ever know...
