Irony defined

Wouldn't it be ironic if exactly 1 week after getting my license back I got into an accident?

Well, apparently god has a sense of humor



yeah...

So here's the story. I was traveling in pretty heavy traffic yesterday and there is this douche bag in a giant excursion who is text messaging (or something, I dunno he was messing with his phone) while he is driving in the heavy traffic. So he starts to swerve into my lane a little bit, so I look up at him....and I'm watching him, and he suddenly comes in pretty fast, so I steer away. And then he pulls back into his lane. So I look back forward, and while I had been watching this piece of shit excursion driver the car in front of me had come to a stop.

And I hadn't noticed.

So I hit her. Not too bad though. The fact hat I only hit her going 5 as compared to the 40 I was going half a second later is a testament the M brakes. This could have been a lot worse than what it was.

So anyway, I get out of the car, I have my insurance ready and all that good stuff (she had hers as well! I hit the one insured driver in new mexico!). And she's like "my car wont start."

"well, most cars have a fuel switch for safety so the car doesn't blow up in the case of a rear impact"
"No I think you did some internal damage to my car!"
"Umm..I doubt it, I most likely flipped your fuel safety switch or I might have knocked a ground loose or something like that. But your car will start again."
"well, either way, you t me pretty hard."
"..."
"My shoulders really stiff...my neck kinda hurts..."
"..."

Fucking stupid lady is starting to pull that shit on me! What a bitch!

But anyway, cop shows up, file a policy report, tell him what happened, all that stuff. And the cop comes out, and gives me a ticket for driver inattention!

"Are you serious? I was trying to avoid an accident with a much larger car."
"well, since you weren't looking at the car ahead of you, which is the one you hit, that is driver inattention. You will have to go to court for it."

I sware man.

So yeah, hr are some more pics:






Oh and the Massive impact that is causing her shoulder pain and damaged her inernal engine components?



yeah...not even a goddamn dent. Its paint.

*sigh*

thank you for asking, well my night was pretty ok, I started off by taking off the rust on my car and um...jk. Man that sucks major ass, I would be so pissed. Can 5mph do that kind of dmg? and your car seems to be orange...probably the lighting. Just fight it in court and hopefully things will go well.

Ouch, that's not good...How much are they raising your rates?...The damage doesn't look too bad, just a bit of work on the front end...Hope it all gets sorted out

I couldn't look at the pics, I started vomiting by the third...


Seriously though, it sucks, so many situations during your drive will you encounter such brain dead idiots who will cause cause close calls without even realizing what they have done. In some cases, it leads to an accident. And whos fault? Yours of course.
