My Quarter-Life Crash

You know when it seems like nothing can go right?  Well, that is happening to me right now.   About a week ago I got my car back after not having it for 2 weeks due to transmission problems and whatnot, well I get it back for a week and it’s driving amazingly, almost like a new car, but all that changed yesterday.  I got into an accident, I didn’t total my car, just did quit a number to the front bumper.  Now, I know that I am the one at fault because the law says that the other guy had the right of way, however it also had a lot to do with objects blocking my point of view and the other guy speeding and coming out of no where, but I won’t get into all of that since I have told the story to countless people and I’m tired of telling it.

The thing that really bugged me though was how the man was treating me.  He was older and kept telling me how much it was my fault and that I needed to drive safer, I told him I understood but that he was speeding and that I had many things blocking my view.  I mean the guy hit me so hard my car spun a little, he knocked my glasses off my face, I’m surprised the airbag didn’t go off (and so was the cop). He kept ignoring my apology and just kept talking down to me like a little kid, he was acting like since I was a woman and in my early 20’s that was why I got into the accident.  I kept telling him I had never been in an accident with another car and that I have never even had a speeding ticket, I’m one of the safest drivers on the road, his response was always, “you’re just lucky I didn’t drive off, I could of just hit you a run. Just remember I didn’t drive off”.  Kind of sketch. And I mean just looking at the 2 cars prior to the accident you could tell I was the better driver, he had a beat up back end that was from another accident.  Any way, I was the only one to call the cops (10 times), he never once called them and never even offered up his insurance, he was acting like I was the one who had to take care of everything.  I might have been the younger one but I was the only one trying to act like an adult in the situation.  Just because I am in my 20’s and a woman doesn’t mean I’m a bad driver, so please stop acting like I am.

Anyway I should find more out about my car tomorrow and talk more to the insurance company.  They say it’ll take 2-4 weeks to get my car back but luckily I have car rental in my insurance policy to help me out until then.

And that is my quarter-life rant of the day.
