Image via WikipediaToday marks another first for me: my first car accident. No worries...shaken, but not stirred. Really just a fender bender.
The insurance company, who is not on our side, has already labeled the accident my fault. The fact that I've been driving for 25 years without an accident is, evidently, a non-issue. I look for my rates to go waaaay up. Pricks.
Now the real worry begins for me. Despite the fact that no one was injured and no ambulance was dispatched, I'm worried that the other driver is looking for a free ride and will try to stake a claim to my house and everything I own. Why should that even be a worry? Accidents happen every day, right? But, in today's litigious society, there are those who don't believe in accidents.
I take the car Tuesday for an estimate, and, with the Grace of God, all will be right with my Toyota before long.
Fighting the schools, fighting the insurance company....I need a vacation.
