I need you all to send virtual hugs to my parents- they are having quite a shitious day.

My mom recently got a brand new car (I bought hers, remember). Some asshole ran a red light (he said it was yellow and didn’t get ticketed) and pummeled her this morning. Luckily, she walked away unscathed but he caused $18,000 in damage.

18,000 DOLLARS.

They haven’t even received the title yet!

I’m trying to look at the big picture, but man, this kind of crap makes me sick.

    This has been a rotten day and all of your hugs helped so much. I can feel every one of them.

    Wow. I’m so glad your mom is okay! What a load of crap that the guy didn’t get a ticket, though.

    That’s so incredibly frightening; glad to hear that your mom is fine.

    (The $18,000, however? Total bullshit.)

    $18,000?! That’s almost as much as my car is worth!

    Ugh, sorry.

    I don’t care if she didn’t have a scratch on her – she should have grabbed her neck and writhed in fake pain. Make that a-hole pay for messing up her new car.

    I agree with Lyndsay. In fact, sometimes, the pain doesn’t start until a few days after the accident anyway.

    Sorry Whoorl’s Mom!
