Today I got hit by a car. God awful. I made the horrid mistake of going to wal-mart for the first time in about 10 years and as I as driving through the parking lot a 68 year old man in a 15 year old saturn decided to cut across the parking spaces and hit my jeep on the driver's side at about 40 MPH. The jeep almost tipped over, the dog pissed all over the place and my shoulder went numb. I got out to exchange insurance info with the guy and he began screaming at me about how I hit him and how I am going to have to pay for the damage to his car (which had pretty much exploded). Absofuckinglutely ridiculous. The driver's side of my jeep was dented at least 6 inches and may have frame damage. Because the asshole was so disagreeable I decided to call the police. Until the police came the guy proceeded to berate, harass and insult me repeatedly blaming the accident on me. He refused to give me his licence or insurance info even though I gave him mine. |
The police woman finally arrived and the jerkoff started yelling over me so I could not tell the cop what happened. The cop yelled at both of us to shut up and I went to sit in my jeep but the fucker followed her to her car and kept yelling about how I hit him and need to pay for his car. The cop ran all the paperwork, gave the asshole a copy of the police report and then came to talk to me. She told me that she could tell by the way the vehicles were facing and my skidmarks that the accident was entirely his fault. She apologized for yelling and said she was just trying to get him to shut up. Luckily I had a really helpful police lady that reassured me that I would not have to pay for any of the damages.
Most importantly though, Sofa and I are okay. She's been through two major car accidents in her 3 years! And she still loves car rides!! Brave little thing!
