labwork, rain and bumper cars
« on: June 01, 2006, 09:15:14 pm »
Well, today I went to get my quarterly labwork bloodsucking done...

I always hate this day.... but it could be worse.. it could be raining.

Ok.. it was worse... and it was raining.

On my way there on the highway... everything just stopped.... I had to slam on my brakes to avoid hitting the car in front of me.

Great!  Whew... Adrenaline rush, but no damage.... that is...

untill the bitch who wasn't paying attention slammed into the back of me.  ...and the first person who makes a crack about me being 'rear ended' is gonna get slapped.

luckily she was going slow, but the impact drove my car forward into the person in front of me... who promptly got out and said 'oh, my back hurts'.


we all exchanged information and i continued on to my labwork.

No damage was really done to any of the cars, but it was quite nerve-wracking all the same.   Of course, this all means i'm calling into work sick tomorrow because MY back hurts.

and it actually does.... i picked up some nuprin.. hey little, yellow and different is kinda kewl still...

I finished up my labs and stopped at my doctor's office to see if he could take me as a walk in... was wanting some xanax or something .... gawd... the labs will probably come back skewed because of the adrenaline (if they test for that)

came home and had a glass of wine and everything is better now... destressed and am cooking one of my favorite meals my mommy always made me... chicken & rice.

ugh... i know nothing serious happened luckily, but dammit, it's just extra stress I don't need.

As long as you are ok that's all that matters...I have been "rear ended" a few times and you always imagine it's going to be worse than it is.

Chicken and rice, that's a nice healthy meal and will go down better with a good glass of wine.

Hope you are feeling a little bit better about everything now..have a great weekend.

Good thing it was only a little bump and not something worse.

Does this mean you don't  like getting it from behind?   ;)

Glad you're ok.

....-Clenches teeth to hold back Smartass remark...... :-X :-X :-X

Perhaps you should contact The Tough, Smart, Lawyer. you know, one of those late night Commercial douchebags that wears a fedora and promises to get you a six figure settlement for something thad didn't even chip the paint. I was in a very similar accident several years ago, and my insurance company wound up shelling out Eight grand  for an accident that didn't even scratch the other cars bumper. they eventually got it all back and then someafter raising my premiums by about 50%....
 Ive always told myself that if I ever got rear ended, in a car, make that in a car accident, that Id immediately do a tactical and vicious nose pick thereby producing a dramatic nosebleed and clutch my neck while screaming " Oh Dear God I cant feel My Legs" and possibly soil myself, and/or go into convulsions. Maybe the nosebleed part might not be a real hot idea, but I could definitely manage to foam at the mouth.... And you can bet your freshly rear ended Ass that I'd play the AIDS card too. Instant Karma baby.
I may be a bit bitter, but every time I think about the lady, who resembled Big Mamma in several ways, looking at my Insurance card and saying " State Farm !  OOOh they Pay off Good !!!"  I get flustered.

Personally, I say Make the bitch Pay !!!!

  Any thoughts on getting rear ended in the back seat of a car?  Was that Big Mamma 1 or 2.  Any chance of getting you to prove your naked under that water?  ;D
