I think someone totaled my car today..I don't know the extent of the damage but rear-ended bad. Im ok, car took the hit, thankfully. And its a used car. I hated car shopping when I needed to. It was snowy outside with low visibility and I notice this pickup truck behind me not driving so well, slipping on the snow into the turn. So in the back of my mind, I'm like "I hope he doesnt hit me. And he does. Actually, he panicked as I was stopped. Swerved around me but ended up catching me with his rear end of a crappy Ford ranger or whatever it was. Tight street, t-intersection, only left turn available.
The inexperienced kid (this was around campus) fled the scene. I tried to chase him down but it was snowy, foggy and coming down heavy. And hard to drive. I got out once I got to where i needed, saw the damage and started swearing up and down like Sam jackson in a Tarantino movie. I feel bad for swearing b/c someone might've heard me. I guess I feel worse for swearing but not as bad for being a hellhound about getting hit. I don't like 2020. It could've been much worse yes.
It would've been nice to exchange info but I dont think people care enough. Sorry, just had to rant about this as it still bothers me. Estimates pending. Maybe I'll get a sweet new car out of the deal. Maybe he'll have a couple restless nights sleep.
If you have any accident stories, please regale us 😭 and please drive safe.
Edit: I guess the real question is..how mad should I be about a kid? On the one hand, he didn't deliberately hit me. On the other, he didn't even stop. And just kept going.
