Craptastic Day

I should’ve known when I accidentally scooped the cat litter into my croc this morning that I’d have been better off going back to bed. 

Then when the cat threw up all down the side of the desk, it should’ve been a clue that the universe was not on my side today. 

I made it through the work day. I was on my way home, minding my own business and this happened. 

Elderly couple in the inside turn lane. It was a double turn lane. We both had the green light and both lanes are designated right turn only. I never left my lane as I turned beside her on her left. Bang! 

Some days it’s not worth getting out of bed. I know it’s just a car, and no one was hurt, but damn it, that’s my baby with the dented door and scuffed paint and wheel.

  1. They gave you fodder for your post? I should apologize right off because I did chuckle. Maybe tomorrow will be better, maybe tomorrow it will rain and wash away your bad luck.

  2. Ugh! Plus, it’s a pain to get the car fixed – even if you get a rental or a loaner, it’s not your car, so it just doesn’t feel the same. Plus, all the time spent taking your car in and picking it up, for something that wasn’t even your fault.

    1. Yeah, I’m bummed. I’ll drive my hubby’s car since it usually only sits all week in a dirt parking lot at the tractor trailer dispatch center/office. First I’ll have to clean it from top to bottom, inside and out. It’s a MESS!

  3. Ouch! I drive an old beater that’s seen more than its share of scratches, scuffs and dents… but I’d still be upset if someone did that to me. Unfortunately, though, I was once on the giving end of one of those love taps in the side, so I understand what it’s like to be on the oopsie side of an accident as well…

    1. It happens. The annoying part yesterday was I gave a recorded statement to my insurance company and a few hours later the other party’s insurance company wanted the same! I think they were trying to trick me into saying something that they could twist and use against me. I work for an attorney so I “lawyered up”. I told the lady to talk to my insurance company. She was okay with that. Might as well let them advocate for me. Why should I repeat myself and have them find inconsistencies in my story? I did nothing wrong. I’m not going to take the blame for anything.
