Yeah, so I was going to pick up my kitten, Zorro, from being neutered and I had to be there by 2:30. I left early 'cause it was a little ways away and I was going to drop off a prescription that I needed at Walgreens. So I was in the right lane of a two-lane, one-way road and some old guy in a purple Scion (not the box thing, something else) does a turn-around and doesn't stay in his lane and hits me. I was so f*cking pissed.
I tried to avoid it, but he comes WAY into my lane and hits me. The guy asks me "Why were you going so fast??" when i was going no more than 10 miles over the speed limit, if that. Anyways, even if I were speeding, it has nothing to do with the fact that he can't stay in his lane and ended up hitting me.
Basically the damage is all of the paint gone from a 5-6 inch area above the front left tire, pretty bad scrapes to the paint from front bumper to back of driver side door, a few dents, and the driver side door won't open. So I have to crawl over from the passenger seat which is soo much fun. I'm going to see if the repair place can fix the door while I'm there because it's a pain to crawl in and out. Anyways, I'm going to get an estimate tomorrow and then I'm going to call the old geezer and tell him that I expect him to pay for every last thing, including the rental car for when my car is getting fixed. He said he has a $1,000 dollar deductible and he doesn't want to involve insurance.
Funny (and ****ty) thing is that if I didn't want to fill that damn prescription (which I ended up not filling anyways) all this never would've happened because I would've gone a different way to pick up my cat. Weird how things work out... Either way, it freaking sucks.
I can admit to it too. A sign on the side of the road blocked my view of the road at night. Pulled out onto a 5-lane highway and an SUV rammed the drivers side going 40 mph. These Celicas can really take a beating!
