Ick, ick, ick. Car accidents suck.

I apologize for the language. I just can't find the words; I can't make this interesting or even remotely articulate. Coming home from my doctor's appointment today, I was rear-ended. There I was, quietly sitting at a red light and next thing I know, my neck is whipping forward. Someone smashed into the car behind me, making the car in the middle look like an accordion and leaving my own vehicle with a severely shortened rear-end. The fender got pushed so far in it’s scraping the back tires, and the hatch will no longer shut.

Now I’m dealing with an insurance company in the state of New Jersey-NOT FUN!!! And I have to deal with repair shops in the morning, as well as the knowledge that I will not have my car for this weekend (dress rehearsal) and perhaps not for opening weekend either. grumble, grrr.

I’m going to have a hot bath and a glass of wine and, perhaps, a good cry.

I feel: stressedstressed

*hugest of hugest hugs for Mari*

to help cheer you up, this person here has been busy timing songs to tape (since the cd writer isn't working yet) to send you for August Box.....

*more huge hugs*
*hopes the imbecile who DARED to rear-end you is feeling suitably regretful.*

(((((Marian))))) I have faith in your ability to deal with pretty much anything, insurance companies included.

Awww, that totally sucks. Are you ok? Besides being shaken up, stressed, and a teensy bit pissed off?

From what you said, I don't see how there's any way you could've prevented the part of the accident that affected you...so you shouldn't have to deal with any of the insurance crap.

Unfortunately, insurance companies have a strange way of looking at things.


Maybe you can just take your frustration with this situation and use it to concentrate harder to hit harder/better with your renfaire stuff.
