Woman Trying To Get To Home Depot Accidentally Crosses The Border Into Mexico
It all started when she went to get some zip ties from a local big box hardware store, and the story ends when she accidentally crosses the border into Mexico.
A Houston, Texas woman named Trinity Jackson shared her harrowing experience of accidentally crossing the border from El Paso, Texas, into Ciudad Juarez, Mexico.
Accidentally Crosses The Border
Jackson’s misadventure began innocently enough when she set out to purchase zip ties from a local Home Depot. It’s like Frank The Tank’s line in the movie Old School, “Nice little Saturday. We’re going to go to Home Depot! Buy some wallpaper, maybe some flooring.” It was supposed to be an innocent Saturday. She was off to check some items off her to-do list and I’m sure she planned on being back home and comfortable on the couch in time to catch her shows.
Unfortunately, that’s not what happened! One wrong turn, and boom you’re in Mexico. It’s wild how all of these mistakes keep happening! Just yesterday, we talked about a woman who mistakenly enrolled at Miami University in Ohio, instead of the one in Florida. Now, we’re discussing a woman who accidentally crosses the border into Mexico. It’s an easy mistake to make, I get it! However, it’s definitely a costly one.
What’s even funnier than the story itself? Is hearing Trinity talk about it. She’s so entertaining and is an excellent storyteller. I felt like I was right there in the car with her during this misadventure. Thankfully, I wasn’t. Ugh. I can’t even imagine what I would do in that situation. Probably call work and enjoy a nice week in Mexico? That doesn’t sound like a terrible idea. I mean, I’m already there…when’s the next time I’m going to be in Mexico? Turn that mistake into something great! Trinity did not agree with my theory. She was itching to get back home as soon as possible.
The good thing is that during this misadventure where she accidentally crossed the border, she picked up some valuable advice in case it ever happens again. According to Jackson, it’s not going to happen again. How could it possibly ever happen again? She crossed the border once, and learned her lesson. No need to repeat the mistake again.
