So, I'm driving to work yesterday on Eddy (23) South on my way to work in the pouring rain when a black 4-door decides to speed out of the Dental Central parking lot, heading North right in front of me. I slammed on the breaks and luckily he was driving fast of I would have T-Boned him completely. He swiped the front driver side of my car and the headlight. I stopped on the street and put my 4-ways on like you are supposed to, but since all the other cars on the road were honking at me I pulled over into the Dental Center parking lot. I guess none of them saw the car hit me or more likely they just chose not to see it. I called the Police and made a report, but I don't have real high hopes that they are going to try and find the person who hit me. On a funny note though, when I called Police dispatch, the guy who answered the phone goes to GCC. He is one of my former student's dad. Thanks Tim!
The car was drivable and probably (hopefully) won't be to expensive to fix. I guess that's what the Emergency Fund is for right? I wouldn't even worry about fixing it if the headlight wasn't cracked. Most of it just scrapes and dents, luckily. It could have been a lot worse.
I think I was mostly in shock when it happened and then angry because not only did the other car not stop, but it didn't even slow down. I wasn't really sore at first, but last night my neck and shoulder started to really bother me. I'm pretty sore today, so I'm thinking a good massage is probably going to be on the agenda this weekend. Even though I'm sore, I do feel lucky because I know it could have been a lot worse.
