No Story Makes for a Crash and Burn Day

21 Jan

It’s so stupid.

I got in my first car accident today, my fault, and I don’t even have a good story to tell.


No screeching tires

No moments of panicking doom

No blood, guts, or even whiplash.


All there was, was a patch of ice, non-responsive brakes and traction, and a broken tail light (and a dented door on my car).


So, I was called an F________  Moron when I got out of the car. And then the guy realized that the damage was kind of minimal so he fizzled.


And then we waited for the police for an hour and a half. I marked 8 papers in the interim.


The police were cheerful; they had just come from writing up 4 other accidents.

I misplaced my registration for a moment, which was more adrenaline pumping than the accident.  


I’m driving like a grandma hunched over the wheel.


Good thing I’m leaving to Florida tomorrow night.


I might not be around much the next two weeks, I’m going to be in Florida, then Israel. Visit my archives, and comment!

    In the winter it’s safer to drive a bike 🙂

    Anyway if there was such small damage why wait for police??

    Regarding grandma – my friend last week almost killed three frum girls when he almost crashed into Acura RSX driven by a… very old woman who could hardly see street from behind the wheel…

    Ahhhhh….my first accident….I remember it fondly. 😉
    It is not for nothing that I’m terrified of the snow….that feeling that the brakes aren’t listening to you is the most awful thing.

    Enjoy your trips, and the biking. 😉
