Ugh! On the way to work this morning.....

  1. Had a bad morning.....before I even got to work today.
    Was on the way to work and was stopped, waiting for traffic to go by before I turned out onto the road....
    CRUNCH!!!!!
    I was hit from behind. Got out of the car to assess any damage to my rear end.....the driver that hit me was a surgical tech that I work with. You guys, I know nobody died and I only have one scratch on my bumper, that I know of....but this is my NEW car that I've only had since October. Really sucks. What a way to start the day, huh?

    The ST felt REALLY bad...offered to fix anything if needed. She was looking the other direction when she put her foot on the gas pedal. It's hard not to hold a grudge and I was proud of myself...I didn't get upset. Of course, I have to be nice 'cause we work in close proximity every day mon-fri.

    Anyone else have a morning like this??

    What a shame. It's hard to get angry with someone you work with, even if it is justified. Someone I work with hit my parked car and was driving away when I yelled for her to stop. But you still gotta be nice And what a way to start the day.

    Anne, this happened to me last fall. Was on my way to work and got in a fender-bender with a panel truck. I'd had my car less than 6 months.

    I'm happy to say, insurance company was great--promptly paid off everything except my deductible, collision center had the work done in 3 weeks and insurance paid for my rental car until it was done--you can't see a scratch on it now. (My baby's all pretty again, yay!) I sincerely hope I never need that collision shop again, but I'll recommend them to anyone who'll listen. Hang in there!
