Have you ever had one of those days????

So, today was just one of those days...

You know the days when you wake up late and actually have somewhere important that you need to go and nothing goes smoothly and you end up getting out of your house 10 mins late and then you hit traffic and it seems like nothing else can go wrong....

Well, I am here to tell you that it really can get worse. LOL.

So, I was having just such a morning. Fridays Juliana has school. We were so late and Juliana just wasn't making it easy. I had to leave home without eating breakfast and I was really trying to get myself to her school as close to on time as possible and we were less than 5 mins away when I was at a stop sign and the lady behind me rear ended me. It was really mild really no damage but when I got out of the car the first words out of the ladies mouth was "I done thought you'd gone already." I looked at her and said "Well I hadn't, I was waiting for the car to pass before I went." Then I asked her for her insurance and she got huffy with me and said, "But there's no damage!" and I said "Yes, but you just hit me and I need your insurance info." She said that she wanted my insurance info. And I told her that I didn't need to give her my info because it wasn't my fault. But, I went to my car and got my insurance card out. I walked back to her car and she still wouldn't give me her insurance. So I got mad and I said a "BAD" word...some thing like, "Just give me your darn insurance info." Only I didn't say darn. And then she started freaking out becasue I was being rude. Well in the mean time I called my hubby. I was mad and she said she wanted to talk to him. So I handed the phone to her and she ended up telling Mike that she wanted our insurance so that she could have our insurance pay for her damage...Hello, I wasn't at fault!! She Hit me!!! And then she hung up on him. So I called him back and he said to call the police.


Right then my wonderful Uncle (my Dad's twin brother) came driving past. I waved him down and he came and sat with me until the Police arived and made it so I didn't freak out on the dumb lady. It was so very frusterating. I mean really there wasn't enough damage to really do anything about it, but I worked in the Insurance Industry for long enough to know that you always get the other person's insurance info.

By the time we left, there was only about 30 mins left of Juliana's school so I told her that I didn't think we could go and she cried and cried because she wanted to see Teacher Rose. I felt bad so we swung by the school mostly to tell them why were weren't their and we ended up going in and staying for the last part of class. It made Juliana feel better and truth be told it was probably better for me because it made it so I didn't have to drive home angry.

Natalie, I'm so sorry to hear about the accident...it is so frustrating when people at fault don't cooperate. At least it was minimal damage, and the police came to straighten it all out. Hope tomorrow is a better one!

Holy smokes! Now that is a bad morning. Car accidents are such a pain...literally. :) I hope it is all worked out now. You should have pretended to have whiplash, just to make her mad. Ha ha.
