I just need to get this out just to get my sanity in order.
This morning, as I was heading off to work, I had a fender bender.
Since it was in my neighbor hood, I was running slow. In fact, I was running the car really slow because in the right side of the road, I saw a kid sitting in the curb, plus there were cars parked on both sides of the road. Got to be careful, you know?
But, yeah, my eyes were on the kid on the other side of the road. On the left side, though, two guys were apparently backing out their motorcycle, and the driver did not notice me. As I passed by them, we had a collision.
Nothing major, but my car – which already has its fair share of battle scars, got another new deep scratch by the side of the front bumper.
I was mad, but there was nothing I could do about it. I wish I’d have moved faster, or notice them moving their motorcycle… From my perspective, though, they were just standing by their bikes.
Work is stressful as it is, and I am deeply affected by this. I feel like the universe is pilling shit after shit on me at the moment, and this was just the icing on the cake.
Sometimes, shit happens, and that its unfortunate when we are on the receiving end.
I tried my best to be calm about it, the driver apologized, and since I was late, I had to leave. I don’t even know if they were my neighbors there, or were visitors. I was disoriented, bothered, mad, and trying to control my temper by being as stoic as I can about it. The more I think about it, the more pissed off I feel, yet I also get a tinge of despair over everything going on at the moment.
I may be at fault for not noticing them, but I had the right of way for I was the one on the road, and they were the one backing out.
I hope you have a nice day.
