Micro fiction: why did Karen hit the red Volkswagen?

It was time for holidays. Karen sat quitely waiting for the airplane to take off. She was already missing the blinding lights of NYC. She breathed heavily. "It will soon be over". As the aircraft brushed against the clouds, Karen felt she wasn't on a national flight, but on a spaceship bound to another planet, a planet where she would face her worst fears: her parents expectations. The welcome home was actually very warming. Her parents and younger sister were cheerfully waiting at the airport. In her mind, she couldn't stop smiling to herself at the contrast between NYC and Denver. The time for dinner came. Turkey with cramberry sauce and pumkin pie made a delicious feast for Thanksgiving until her father brought it up with questions like "So how is your real job search going?; "How long will you continue this bohemian lifestyle?" Karen couldn't take it, stood up, went to the garage and drove the Volvo in reverse, pressed the pedal and accidently hit the rubbish bin.
