i didn’t even do anything wrong

Right now, my most favorite car in all the land (my Escape) is about $275 away from getting totaled out. All because some asshole wasn’t paying attention when he was driving. You have no idea how sad this makes me.

I was minding my own business, being a perfect law-abiding citizien on my way to be on time (yes, on time) for work and what happens? I get rear-ended by some jerk who was too busy putting his coffee in the cup holder. And what do I get out of the deal? A swollen neck, more time away from doing any physical activity, two extremely bruised and banged up knees, numb forearms and hands when I try to actually work, and now the possibilty of having car payments once again because the payout on my Escape isn’t going to be anywhere close to buying another SUV like my poor, nameless, crashed-up car.

The mechanic at the car glass installation place that I just talked to hadn’t even noticed that the driver’s side seat was stuck in the recline position, so once he adds that on to the estimate, I can see it taking an extreme turn for the absolute worst (or worse, whatever) and it just fucking infuriates and saddens me all at once.

  1. I have three words for you: Ford Escape Hybrid. Car payments, yes, but less gas money.

    Still sucks, though.

    If it makes you feel any better, when I initially typed “Ford”, I accidentally typed “Rod”.

  2. I was telling Kristina about your wreck on Friday.

    Ten minutes later, we were starting through a 4-way stop, and guess what happened.

    Got fucking rear-ended.

    It wasn’t nearly as bad as yours, since no one was in front of us. The dumbass old woman who hit us said, “Well, you stopped so suddenly!” Stopped suddenly? We’d been sitting still at a stop sign and had just started moving when she hit us!

    Sick to death of people driving around with their heads firmly placed up their asses.

    And for the record, I will never again talk about car accidents while riding in a car. Apparently, that’s just asking for it.

What's up?
