Excuse me if I vent.....
(you were warned)
This past Friday, someone crashed into my 5-month old car. Amazingly enough, the fact that is was my first new car is the least of things that pissed me off about it.<P> We were parked in front of my friend's house, dropping him off after a really fun night. All of a sudden, *CRASH!* my whole world was a violent snap. No squealing of brakes, no warning claxon, nothing. This driver, asleep, drunk, high or any combination of the above, swerved onto the other side of the road and plowed into the corner of my car. I gathered my bearings and looked outside the window to see what the hell just ran into us, only to see a vehicle turning the corner. He was <I>leaving</I>! After quickly asking if everyone was OK, I bolted outside and ran down the street as fast as my legs could carry me. By the time I could see the car again, it was too dark for me to make out any details, even the big stupid ones like color. I got back, only to find 2 of my friends sitting on the sidewalk tending to a third who was bleeding from his face. After some coercion (he was worried because he didn't have insurance), he accepted a ride to the hospital from a kindly neighbor, where he was treated with 9 stitches.<P> I just can't believe how selfish a person can be, where having possibly seriously injured someone, he could just drive off like nothing happened. It could have been so much worse. Two seconds later, if we were standing outside the car... I don't even want to think about it. I am happy that for the most part, we escaped with only minor injury, but furiously angry that someone didn't have the integrity or decency to take responsibility for their actions. Now we're faced with tons of paperwork from the insurance company and the police, I have to deal with not having a car for a while, and my friend isn't feeling great, having his face bruised, inflamed, cut, and sewn together.<P> I do want to thank the neighbor, for his wonderful help, my friend Aramis for taking us home in the morning, and Tony for being so calm throughout this whole ordeal. This is defintely one experience that I couldn't have gotten through by myself without freaking out. THANK YOU.<P> As for the mystery assailant, a greater man would be able to forgive you, but it's not in my heart to forgive a nameless, faceless coward whose reckless actions have wontonly injured my friends.<P>...Just had to get that out of my system.<p>[This message has been edited by Dedos (edited 12-26-2001).]
