I just got rear-ended.
I was very fine about it for a while. It happened right in front of my house while I was parallel parking. Some lady going too fast rammed into me. Immediately, I parked my car, then got out to exchange information. I looked over my shoulder for Fool, then remembered she had moved out. I can do this myself, I said.
So I did. And everything was fine, until the lady said, "I keep telling people, people in Maryland can't drive in the rain." She looked at me accusingly.
"Uh, lady, this is your fault. You rear-ended me."
"Didn't you hear my honking? Didn't you see me sliding?"
"Yes, it was because you were going too fast in the rain and because you didn't have a safe following distance. I couldn't get out of the way because you were barrelling down on me."
Then she got loud.
I got louder, exploding on her. I coudn't believe her audacity. I refrained from cursing, but didn't hold anything else back. The neighbors came out to look.
I'm pissed off. This is two accidents in five months, both from drivers hitting me in front of my house. At least in the first one I wasn't even in it. In this one, I was, and it sucked. I hope I get the deductible back.
On the other hand, I'm glad I didn't get my driver's side mirror fixed yet. Her car hit it on the way by (she tried to maneuver around me). That'll be covered now.
