I keep tell her its her fault
Always the OH fault mate no matter what!

Tell her it's best practice to leave it gear just incase the handbrake ever fails, especialy when parked on a hill.

I never belived it could never happen until it happened to me, found my Escort stopped infront of a wall at the bottom of my street for some reason that day I didn't leave it in gear and the handbrake cable snapped in the middle of the night. First thought was it had been stolen. The most lucky part was there was normally a car parked infront of that wall but luckily it wasn't there when my car hit!
