Was in a car accident today :,( .. I was just trying to see harry potter and in a (particularly awful) intersection a guy pulled out in front of me and I hit him. The front of my car got wrecked, his side doors (truck) were damaged. Everyone's fine, thank god- but wrooo.
Im so upset about it. My boyfriend, dad and little brother were with me. Why did that a$$ have to pull out? Why?
Unfortunately two people ("witnesses", pft) said the light was red.. But they werent even there when it happened. So how would they know? Idk, the whole thing is fishy, but people around here do crap like that...
I got a ticket because of the witnesses, even though we and even the cop know thats not possible, as per the damage on both cars (the way I hit and they received it)... Whatever... *sigh*
Yeah, right? I felt bad, he had a young kid with him. I did, too, though.
He was smoking in the car, though, so automatically the man has none of my respect.. Dont smoke in the car, guy. You're gonna kill your kid that way. :/
And yeah, it was my first. Hell of an accident to have. Do not want :,(
The worst part was my mother. She literally yelled at me. I kept composure the whole time, and then she comes and freaks every one of us out ("YOU ALMOST DIED!!!" Thanks, mom, sthu.) and I almost cried. I cried at home and needed a hug, so I hugged danny and told mum how frightened and sad I was, and she yelled at me.
She should have just stayed away. Even my dad was angry with her about that.
I feel terrible enough as is, I dont need my mother reminding me. My dad came in and made me feel better, though. He's my step-dad, but sometimes he's more of a dad than my actual dad is. :'/ At least someone took the time to care and help me deal with it.
I'm so sorry, Alyssa. Your mom sounds like how my grandma acted when my mom and I got in a car accident. There was an oil and water slick in the road, but my grandma blamed it all on my mom, even though my grandma wasn't even with us. I feel your pain. I hope you don't have any lasting back problems from it like I do.
Thank you, guys. And no, sweeda, everyone's just fine. My head hurts a bit and so does my dad's (we were in front, I was driving) but Im sure its from being jarred about. No airbags deployed, luckily, I managed to stop hard and go from the normal 30+ to under 10 in a second :(
And yes, thats exactly how mom is. She never thinks about things and lets them gurgle and spew from her mouth without thought ;,( I havent heard a thing from her (shes at a reunion), which is her (petty) way of telling me shes angry.
Sigh. Thats fine mom. Glad youre acting like a child somewhere else. :,(
Anti-rant: My sister called and asked for advice about her new Betta! She has a double tail named Aquarius! How cute is that? She was having trouble getting him to eat, and he was lethargic. I told her to try crushing up his pellets. Also, she has him in a .5 gallon. I'm giving her one of my extra 1 gallons when she comes here this week. I'm going to try to convince my parents to let me get her a heater soon, before the weather gets cold. I'm sure he'll be fine during the summer. It's not optimal, but it's not terrible.
