Damn it! I got hit yesterday. I was coming home after a long week and I was looking forward to a nice weekend. It was 5:00 and traffic was moving quite nicely for once. I was coming up on the 238/580 split and traffic was starting to slow down. As I reached the BART plaftorm next to the highway I was hit from behind.
I saw it coming. I knew it as well. I’m always checking my rearview mirror when traffic starts to slow rapidly because I’ve this fear some idiot is going to rear end me because they are two close.
This time was a bit different. The car hit me was nearly a 1/4 mile behind me BUT she going about 70 miles an hour. I knew she wasn’t going to be able to stop in time. And she didn’t. Wham! She hit my rear and buckled the right quarter panel above the wheel as well as knocked the crap out of my bumper.
Now I’ve got a stiff neck. A smashed car and a $1000.00 deductible. Crap, @##$,@#$%@#$%. I called my insurance company and the works in the motion. The fracked part is that I’ve got to pay the deductible then I get reimburssed from her insurance company after the paperwork is submitted. F@!#$!#.
The girl was a 17 teenager. Probably talking on the phone with her boyfriend while driving her daddies sports car and chit chatting with her teeny bopper girl friend who was sitting next to her. Her car is pretty much done. The front left was crumpled and the hood was all bent.
A pretty f’d up way to start the weekend.
