Merry Christmas (?)

My roommate woke me up at 3 AM to tell me that our neighbors were buzzing our door... apparently, someone's car spun out on the ice and slammed into my car (and the car in front of me). It was bad. Very bad.



So my Christmas Eve was spent calling my insurance company, taking pictures of the damage, cleaning out the car, waiting for the tow truck, and calling my parents to arrange for a ride. Ugh.

The good news (if you can call it that) is that the police have the guy who hit the cars. He was taken away in a police car before I even got outside. I don't know all the details yet. After the accident, it was about a half an hour before a neighbor came out who knew that the car belonged to me. So she buzzed our apartment until she managed to wake up my roommate, who went out to see the damage before coming to wake me up. By the time I got out there, the police officer was already finished writing up the report.

I have to wait to hear from the insurance company, but I'm fairly sure I'll have to start shopping for a new car soon. Oh, the timing...

I'm so sorry to hear (see?) that. Your poor car! If it had to happen, at least it wasn't with you in the car, though. Hope the rest of your Christmas is MUCH better.

The pics are horrible, but I'm glad to know you are OK and handling it well. I would be freaking out. Timing is bad, but they say there are good deals on cars now. Good Luck, and Happy New Year! May 2009 hold positive surprises for you and yours.

Oh geez! I guess it's also good news that no one was hurt because that's a serious bang up job he did. At least now you get to pick out a new car? Or maybe that's not fun. Personally, I hate shopping for cars.
