Am I living a real-life Unbreakable, or a real-life Final Destination?
So yeah, I've been away for a week or two. Before you proceed, please read or at least skim my first blog entry from back in December.
It's not Christmas without a horrible accident.
So in the aftermath of that, everything eventually got hashed out and I bought a new car ('09 Vibe GT). Wound up ok actually - my settlement left me with a few thousand extra left over for a downpayment and my monthly wound up being very managable. Not to mention they redesigned the car for 2009 and it looks a lot better; I liked it quite a bit more than my previous car.
On 2/6, I took my lunch hour from work and went to a friend's younger sister's funeral. It was not a fun event, obviously. After the funeral I went back and finished out my day at work.
On the way home, I was hit and run off the road AGAIN. This time it was even worse, as I rolled over twice and the car was damaged a more than the last time.
That car was three ing weeks old. Hell, the accident happened just a few miles from where the December one occured. I was looking at stats on how likely someone was to get into a rollover accident in their lifetime, it was pretty small. The likelihood of two rollovers in a month and a half timespan is absolutely miniscule. My friends urged me to buy a lottery ticket the next day.
Once again I just walked away from it. Ribs were a little sore for a day or two but after that, nothing. Emerged from the car with an angry grunt when the hysterical woman that stopped to check on me started screaming and asking if I was ok. Like I said last time - that Vibe 5-star safety rating ain't no joke.
This time I'm not so sure how I'll make out. Michigan has horribly limiting laws on what you can collect from the other guy. I did have gap insurance so I won't be upside-down on my car payments or anything, fortunately. Still, it's not like I'll get my sales tax back and I seriously doubt I'll get most of my $5000 downpayment back. I'd like to get the same car but I don't know if I'll be able to do that. I do wish bad things upon the prick who hit me though.
I don't know if I'm indestructible, or if death is trying to get me and I'm on strike 2. The name of this blog suddenly scares me a little.
I'm still planning on doing my EGM retrospective thing that I did a test run for in my second entry from several weeks back. It just hasn't really been top of mind for me with this car nonsense going on.
