Not so new anymore

My car is no longer new. :-(

My Honda may be a 2000 but it was in perfect condition and new to me when I bought it last year. It is no longer perfect. :-(

B was pulling into a friends house the other day and another friend's wife was backing out. B stopped the car while still in the street and honked his horn. He says she did not even apply the breaks and did not look in her rearview mirror. She was peeling out and going the wrong way. I won't even go into the fact that she had a young child in the car with her. B said she just slammed into the car - that is what stopped her. We are very lucky that the only damage was the bumper and small dents above the wheel. So far the estimates are coming to $750.00.

Of course this had to happen on Sunday AFTER my week of vacation. So now, if we want to get it fixed I have to somehow get more time off of work. I have the hours available, it is just convincing my manager to let me take the time.

I have only been at work a little over 3 hours and I am already ready to go back home. I am so slow starting today and cannot get into my groove.

  1. That totally sucks. Someone rear-ended me last year and did too much damage to fix and the insurance company wrote my car off. A beautiful little Mercedes that was almost perfect. I hope you get yours fixed fast and without much hassle.

    Thanks for posting on my blog.

  2. Oh, no! That sucks. I'm so sorry.

  3. I agree. It does suck. It looks even worse now as the people doing the estimates have pulled the bumper away from the car. So now I am driving with the bumper sticking out.

    We did find out that the girl who hit the car has a problem with NEVER looking in the rearview mirror. Her husband told us this. We also found out that they do not have insurance and will be taking a loan out to pay for the repairs. I sure hope they are approved as the amounts range from $750.00 to $1500.00.
