Well, I really need to vent today so what better place to do it than here? Just last month I posted about not having insurance, the kids getting sick, etc; We are having a horrible month and with Christmas right around the corner - it's even worse. We're behind on our bills, my kids Christmas is really gonna suck, I don't even have the money to buy all the stuff I wanted for baking cookies this year. I don't have any money right now for their stockings (stuff to put in them). Well, thankfully I had some credit available on my Valero card because I was almost out of gas and had to go there to get gas beause I have to work tomorrow and I was coming out of my neighborhood onto the highway, well, the car in front of me started to go and stopped. I didn't realize that she stopped and let up on the break and just barely tapped her car. She got out and I got out and we looked at her car which was fine and she said that there were no marks and she was fine but she wanted my info in case there were any damages not visible. Since there were more cars behind us I asked her to pull over on the side of the road. So...we pulled over and ( I was already depressed and stressed because of the bills, christmas,etc; It was catching up to me today) she got out of her car and walked over to my passenger door. I opened the door and told her she could sit while I looked for my card. I could feel my eyes filling with tears and my hand was shaking as I was writing everything down. She looked in the back seat and saw the two carseats and asked if I had two "little ones". I just starting crying. So...I gave her my info and left.
I don't know if she will file a claim or what. I did hit her but it was the equivalent to pulling up in my driveway and pulling up too far tapping the garbage can. There was not a single scratch or scuff on her car.
Nice, huh? Merry Christmas.
