so i went out today for taco bell and got in an accident. my car is totalled. i hit a patch of ice and slid into the back of a pickup stopped at a red light. it's fucked: the fuckin hazards woudln't even turn on. so the people i hit called 911, we exchanged info, the guy helped me get my car out of the intersection, and i stood in the windy cold til the cop showed up. then a half hr later the tow truck showed up. and here i am.
i have the state minimum required insurance. so it will cover the tiny scratch on their bumper, but not the crumpled engine i got.
everyone's fine, since tha'ts the first thing people are asking me. i'm sure i'll be thankful for that later, but i'm not feeling very thanky now.
so i guess i won't be driving to boston.
EDIT: it has been brought to my attention that totalled actually means it is smashed to shit. i just meant it is dead and appeared bashed enough that i won't be able to afford to make it not dead. as far as actual damage to like the body, it was mostly the hood and the bumper i think.
state: no love no car no job no home no good
np: devin townsend - christeen - 03 - sit in the mountain
on the plus side, you also won't be driving IN boston....
I'm glad you're okay! even if your car being totalled is much badness.
srsly i've driven in boston during the winter before, and i didn't hit anything. this is washington's fault.
I am happy you're okay, but it sure does suck. I am sorry, dan.
:( now i can't visit you again on the way back
the saddest part is no taco bell!
the accident was on the way back. i got my taco bell, it was tasty.
did you get the grilled steak taco? thats my favorite
i got two of those new chalupa taco things, and a double decker taco supreme
i don't think iv'e even tried the steak tacos actually. i should get on that. i should make someone else drive.
was that frozen poo? well damn, and i thought just ice was to blame
Stupid nature. Why must nature be lame and sucky? ::Hugs:: RIP Woody's car

at least you didn't fall off the viaduct.
and at least you are okay, of course.
that viaduct thing is still amazing
*sads and hugs*
Good that you are undamaged, physically, by it, though. Hitting pickups from behind SUCKS. I've done it, and only barely managed to avoid my car being totaled.
i thought you were bailing on boston anyway
haha when you've been around longer you will know that this is basically how i make all my decisions: i pick something, i have second (third, fourth) thoughts, i get incredibly indecisive and flail about, then i go with what i said in the first place.
although! in this case another good option was given to me after this post, so right now providence is looking more likely than boston.
i'm selling my 2002 vw golf. i can't fit 2 carseats in the back. legally. hahaha!!
i'm glad you are ok and you got your tacos.
As the recent survivor of a collision I *know* how bad it sucks to be in an accident. Snow should be listed as a conspirator.
Good you're ok. Getting hurt and wrecking your car would suck even more.
