Ever have one of those days....

...where you wish you would have just stayed in bed...or at least an extra 5 minutes at Cheryl's having tea.







Today was one of those days for me!!

In my defense, the driver ahead of me had the all clear to merge. They accelerated to merge, I looked to make sure I was clear, I accelerated and at the same time the driver in front of me decided to stop! Suddenly!!!!

I am o.k., the other driver is o.k. - her big gas guzzling SUV is o.k. - my beautiful, sleek, fairly gas efficient, heated seats and sun roof, silver 2003 Volkswagen Golf is not :(

To top it all off - the police officer, nice as she was, gave me a $280.00 ticket for "Undo Care and Attention".....There was care....there was attention!

Oy, I shoulda stayed in bed.

Ugh! Sorry you had such a bad day. What a pain!

Dianne said...

Oh poor you! Poor car! I'm so glad you're ok, Rana!

I've had the same thing happen to me a few years ago, except the only damage was a trailer hitch-sized hole in the front bumper. Conclusion: shoulder checking is the devil!!

Shannon and Dan said...

Oh no!!!!! That ticket is just a slap in the face! I'm glad to hear that you are OK. Big hugs.

I am happy to hear that everyone is okay...well, except the car, that is.

D Dae said...

Thank goodness everyone is ok! I hope tomorrow is better.

Kendra said...

Oh Rana, in that situation is the ticket really necessary??? Glad everyone is ok and hope tomorrow is better!

haze said...

Oh crap. What a pi**er!! Accidents like that are not your fault but I guess they have to blame someone - or do they? It seems pretty harsh to me.
I'm glad no one was hurt.

CinnamonOpus said...

OH No! Oh that sucks! But I am glad you were not hurt, at least. Although that ticket is going to be a pain in the old wallet!

Oh that really sucks - and OMG a ticket to top it off. So sorry. Glad you are OK.

Ricki said...

Oh no Rana, that really sucks!
I'm glad to hear that you are okay.

Natalie and Chris said...

So sorry to hear about your accident. Happy that you are okay, but it's such a pain to deal with now. Dang drivers (everyone else but us).

Sherri said...

The only reason you got a ticket was because the officer was a woman - Rana - no man in his right mind would give you a ticket ( unless it bought him 5 more mins of time to look at your pretty face ) LOL

Julie said...

Oh no! I'm so sorry! glad you are okay!

Rhonda and Kristin said...

Oh sucky!!! Good thing everyone's ok, but it sucks with the ticket & now you have to get your car fixed. Geesh, I think we'll ll had one of these days so you're not alone friend.

Just remember if I show up early on Sunday I do not, and I repeat do not know how to fix a car. I'm better at cutting up veggies...

Darrell and Jess said...

oh man that sucks....glad you're ok! I am having one of those days as well - nothing goes right, should have stayed in bed.

Ramona said...

Feeling ok today? Not a good way to spend your day... And what's with the ticket? As if Autopac won't be enough... Grrr... I was so close to causing an accident yesterday and my 4 year old proudly announced it at Walmart today... Does this mean a new car for your little one to ride in or is it fixable? Just what you didn't want to deal with now,
Ramona

Kristen and Dave said...

So sorry Rana - that really sucks!!

Tova said...

So sorry to hear that...I once put the truck in the ditch with black ice and a police officer gave me ticket for undo care...and it was a man!! I asked him if he liked his job. :) I think at that point he regretted not giving me a bigger ticket!

The Warren Family said...

Oh no...that stinks! I am known for running into posts in parking lots (my husband just loves me)...
it makes you feel sick to your stomach at first, then you remember that it is just a car and as long as everyone is ok that is all that matters.
Glad to hear you are doing ok!

ShaunaT said...

That really sucks! But I'm happy to hear that you are O.K!!

joyce said...

okay, that police person is just a COW in my opinion. Giving you a ticket, on top of it all!

verification word:
costsc

UGH!!! I hate days like that especially when you were duped into thinking everything was leading to a merge.

Littleone said...
