Got a distress call from P this morning. He was in a car accident on the expressway on the way to work. He called me from the center lane, sitting in the car, hooked on the trailor hitch of the truck in front of him. Have to love those cell phones??? He said he was okay, thankfully and needed me to come get him and take him to work. That's my guy, worried about getting to work.
They couldn't get out of their vehicles until the police arrived and could guide them off the road. Actually the guy he hit "towed" him off hooked to his truck! The "Help" truck that monitors the expressways helped them get the two vehicles apart so the other person could continue on his way in his "undamaged" vehicle. When I first saw it I thought, wow, that looks okay....okay until I looked into the hole. The radiator is smashed into the engine, so we are not sure of the actual internal damage. The insurance company says it will most likely be totaled due to age and mileage. I bought this car off the showroom floor 11 years ago, it doesn't owe me a dime. It just seems like such a waste..... So if anyone is keeping track in the last few months we have had:
mushroom eatting Kiki incident
virus infected computer
tenant who left like a thief in the night AND trashed fridge and stove
but heh, I still have my sense of humor and my faith...I'm hanging on to those for all I'm worth!
