Killed An '05 Harley Davidson Edit. F-350 PSD

Ha-ha! It's not exactly what you think! Lemme explain: I started a new job @ a family friend's truck sales, turning wrenches. The 1st vehicle I got to work on was a customer's HDE F-350, & it was gorgeous! The back of the shop's entrance is a really narrow driveway, on a hill, with 2 cement walls that are part of some sort of foundation the previous owners of the shop must've been trying to build. The 2 garage doors of the shop aren't in line with this entrance, either, & the hill of the entrance is covered in snow & ice. I was trying to be as careful as hell with the truck, figuring if anything happened I'd get fired, & probably get my butt ground into a fine powder by the owner of the truck. I had the truck in 4x4 backing out the garage bay & made a hard left to get the truck lined up with the entrance. I was looking in the driver's side-view mirror making sure my side wasn't going to hit the wall. Just as I had straightened the truck out, I hear a loud 'CRUNCH'. I looked over to the pass side mirror, but couldn't because I had destroyed it on the other side of the cement foundation. I pulled the truck forward making sure nothing else was damaged, & to my amazement, it was only the mirror
Just as I stepped back to the door, the boss's son had heard the crunch from outside the shop! It turned out I wasn't the 1st person to do this...apparently, everyone else(including himself, the other mech, & even the boss!) had all done this @ least once. It just turned out I did it to the most expensive vehicle out of all of them. I pulled a tow mirror from one of the trucks for sale & put it on the HDE. If anyone feels like it, could you buy me some curb feelers for my birthday?
