You can’t turn the clock back

Police in Idaho a few years ago received a number of calls from residents of a certain neighbourhood about a car that was being driven round their streets in reverse. They went to investigate and found the car just as they’d been told. The driver turned out to be a teenage girl. When the cops asked her what on earth she was doing, she explained that her parents had gone away for a few days and had left her the car keys just in case she had to use it. Well, temptation had got the better of her and she’d used it a great deal. Then she realised she’d be in trouble when her father noticed how many extra miles were now on the odometer, so she’d been driving backwards hoping to wind the clock back.
But one of the essential truths of life is that you can’t turn the clock back, only admit what you’ve done and seek forgiveness.
