The Inner Geek Posted October 3, 2013 Share Posted October 3, 2013 I've not been on much the last couple days. I thought I'd share my woes with the crowd here... Tuesday morning I was driving to work. The traffic on the highway was stop-n-go as usual. A couple miles from my house the lady in front of me slowed down to a stop and so I slowed down to a stop behind her. The lady behind me, however, didn't get the memo about traffic stopping. I'm not sure how fast she was going, but there was a good 2 seconds of breaks squealing before she slammed into the back of my car and sent me into the back of the car in front of me. Things I learned... If you want to ram into people in a VW Passat, buy a Chevy Tahoe. It's very efficient. The Tahoe that did all this damage did not have a scratch on the front end. I'm still waiting to hear back, but they may have to total my car. If you need insurance, don't call Dave Hart in Hurst, TX. I left a message about this at 7:30am... I was freaking out and in a bit of shock. He called back at 3:30pm that day and basically said, 'well I guess you got it taken care of?'. Thanks for talking me through what to do, douche. People really do equal stuffe as the song says. We are on the side of the road and there has obviously been a pretty serious wreck. People are rolling down their windows screaming profanities, honking, and flipping the bird. This didn't slow down any at all after the police were on the scene. I'm not talking about angry biker types or other toughies, these were soccer moms upset that our tragedy had imposed a few minutes on their day. No one likes traffic, and I hate it as much as the next guy or gal, but I've never considered acting that way when there is a wreck slowing down traffic. I had my wife take me to the ER and I checked out ok, just some serious whiplash. They gave me some wonderful muscle relaxers that help me sleep, even when I'm awake. Now I'm dealing with insurance adjusters so the real pain can begin. At least no one was seriously injured. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
