I have extreme road rage and I don't like to pay attention.
I admit it.
I have wrecked twice in the snow, crushed my grandma's car by backing into her in her driveway, and also been known to knock my car door into other people's car doors in parking lots (my bad).
But in the past two weeks, I have managed to have two minor fender benders. Two.
Last week, I backed into husband's prized possession (his jeep) in our driveway. He never parks behind me and I was running late so I threw my car in reverse and hit the gas without looking behind me. BAM, right into the jeep. His baby (and by baby I obviously mean the jeep, not his wife) is fine since has has a giant grill guard thing on the front. But my car, not so much....
Perfect indent of the grill bar thing.
Fast forward to Valentine's Day. Things were going well, husband surprised me with flowers (something he usually doesn't do) and lunch.
After leaving lunch (with a belly FULL of delicious mexican food) I got behind a little old lady and a young guy in a red truck at a stoplight.
After we stopped at the light and were about to go over railroad tracks a few feet ahead the little old lady SLAMMED on brakes. The guy in the red truck tried to swerve and miss her while slamming on brakes and I tried the same thing but BAM, I "tapped" his back bumper.
We pulled off the road onto the median in the middle of the road and I climbed out saying "oh my gosh, I am so sorry!" Luckily he was super nice (and kinda cute, not to mention named Mark which is my dad's name) and there wasn't any damage except some paint marks, but he still called the police.
Now, we live in a small, small town. So obviously everyone and their brother saw the cars and were all omg, are ya'll alright?! and my favorite "did you have an accident?!" to which I replied "um no, we just felt like hanging on the median here in the middle of lunch break traffic, no big deal."
Then I made the phone call I dreaded... the one to Josh. He couldn't believe I'd hit somebody else and said he was going to take back my valentine's day flowers and my keys too. Thankfully nobody was hurt, nobody got a ticket and the cars are fine, save for a few little scratches.
How's your driving?
