This morning, on my way to an appointment I got into my very first car accident. Well, my first car accident that actually did damage and I had to call the old Po-Po to come and write it all up.
The story goes like this....
I was entering I-215 West near 6200 South. I was behind a white truck that was inching forward at 15 mph. No lie. So, of course I was driving close to her. Because if I had been driving any slower I would have been going backwards. Anyway, so there I am about to merge onto the freeway going so slow that I fear I was going to be killed and so I looked over my shoulder to merge. When I looked forward, the truck in front of me had come to a complete stop and I slammed right into her. Then, the car behind me slammed into me. Wow, didn't see that coming.
I pull over - as did the car that hit me. But the lady that I hit continued to keep driving. She eventually pulled over about 20 yards down the road. She got out of her car, looked at her bumper, started screaming profanities my direction, then got back in her car and drove away. Wow, didn't see that coming.
The guy that hit me was very nice and asked if I was ok. I apologized for stopping and making him hit me. Really, I wish the lady that I hit had stuck around so I could have given her a piece of my mind. Don't stop on a freeway entrance you moron! Whew, glad I got that out.
The police came and we gave them all of our information. I luckily was not cited because the white truck lady drove away. Yippee!
Car Accident Boy, or CAB as he will now be known, and I exchanged numbers and as I was about to get in my car he goes, "Um, so I know this is going to sound a little odd, but would you like to have dinner with me sometime?" Wow, didn't see that coming.
I told him that sure, I would like to have dinner with him. So, not all is lost. I got a date out of it. Merry Christmas to me.
My poor little car didn't come away so lucky. The front of my car is not too bad, but the back has definitely seen better days.
