Over the weekend, I had a car accident. Nothing huge, but enough to scare me silly, and crunch in part of the car. And, regardless of what everyone involved was saying (traffic came to a very sudden, dead stop), I got named at fault for it.
Being at fault comes with a $175 ticket.
To top that off, we found out today that we have no collision damage coverage on our insurance policy, so the damage? Not covered at all. It's $2100 worth of damage. The passenger door won't even open. So, no coverage, but damages that HAVE to be fixed. Obviously, there are damages that can remain as is, but the lights need to be fixed, and the door needs to be able to open. That part alone is going to cost us money we simply don't have.
As it is, savings is paying the ticket for me. The rest? No way. I'm absolutely livid about the whole thing.
No one was hurt. The other guy? His truck is an old beat up thing. His rear bumper got dented in. Nothing else.
Today I got an email from my husband's dad. Chris is with him for the summer, and has managed to break the frames of his glasses in half. How? No clue. There's more money out the window.
