Wrecked my car

Posted by Racer on August 22, 1999, at 18:03:01

This was the test, I guess, since I'm still way too far in the hole financially to handle fixing it. The traffic was moving at the limit, I had just started again after a red light, was almost to the speed limit (35), when the cars ahead of me in my lane only suddenly stopped. Not slowed significantly, but stopped dead. I couldn't stop in time, and slammed into the last of them, and my car was the only one damaged. It's pretty bad, too. I'm estimating about $2500, if I can get a good deal from the body shop. The fellow in the car ahead of me was wild, despite the fact that his bumper was too high, which is why my car was damaged, and the fact that the babe ahead of him was saying, "just drop it, no one is hurt, no damage to any car except hers", but he was saying that the police needed to be there. Well, in San Francisco, where this happened, the police only come if an ambulance does or if it's reported as drunk driving.

Why am I telling you this? Because my reaction to this whole thing is, "Damn, and I was going to go to the art store to buy some glass tiles to make a mosaic for my living room. This is going to cost a ton of money, too. Hm, what do I think I've got coming in in the next few weeks? Am I carrying collision insurance? Is my insurance agency open today? Where's the nearest body shop, and do they do good work?" What I wasn't thinking was, "This is a sign that I have to die, because I can't handle this."

Pretty good progress, huh?
