Today's lessons learned

1. I don't look like a bimbo. At least that's what Jimmi on Real Men Wear Pink said on today's episode. I guess that's good.

2. If you find a white piece of plastic with the Apple logo all chewed up, that's likely going to be a bad thing. (It was the USB cable to my iPod...thanks Sunshine!)

3. This one is the most important one, so don't forget it. People are scumbags; don't waste your time trying to be nice to them. They don't deserve it, so don't bother.

Lesson 3 was taught to me today by the scumbag who hit my car last night. She was all apologies last night, but today she is Little Miss Liar Pants. This is what actually happened. I was stopped waiting at a stoplight. She came and smashed into my rear-end. She said her ABS didn't work for some reason, and that it was slippery from the rain. (it wasn't even slippery) The police seemed like they wanted to give her a ticket. They kept asking me if she was talking on the phone or text messaging. If she was driving negligently in any way. I said it was just one of those things that happens, and I didn't think she was negligent. The police officer seemed to be leading me to try to ticket her. I felt bad, she was a college student and had never been in an accident. Her car looked like it's most likely totalled, so I didn't want her to get a ticket in addition to all that. So how does she show her appreciation for me being nice to her? For me not yelling at her for hitting me? For me trying to make sure she didn't get a ticket? She lies about what happened in an effort to make it look like it was partly my fault. Her statement to her insurance agent was that I was speeding down the street and slammed on my brakes. Um, yeah I was speeding down the street at a breakneck zero miles per hour! Yep! Just sitting at the stoplight like a maniac!

I guess we need these wake up calls every now and then. People aren't nice. Don't make the mistake that because you are nice, others might be too. They aren't--they suck.

So the mechanic that looked at my car told me that he wouldn't recommend driving it to Chicago. Happy flippin' birthday celebration weekend to me! I'm going to try to get her insurance company to rent me a comparable car. It's funny, the Murano is considered a "premium" car and costs about $50 per day to rent. I don't feel like I should not have to drive junk, and they should provide me with something similar to what their insured wrecked. We'll see how this goes.

This blog was much better before blogger ate it and I had to rewrite it...

Sorry to be so foul the past couple of days. I'm really stressed out. I'm achy. My head hurts, and for some reason my soul hurts and it makes me cry.

Seriously, I have the worst flippin' luck!

Ok, if you are looking for an attitude that even remotely resembles positive read no further! This isn't the day for that shit! Not here, and not from me anyway!

So, I decided to go get my eyebrows waxed. A little beautification at the spa seemed like it was in order. So I was on my way there when a young girl smashed into (rear-ended)my Nissan Murano at a stoplight. Nobody was hurt, blah blah blah. Although I am getting a little stiff and achy, but that's to be expected.

My birthday celebration (I tend to stretch out a birthday as long as I can!) in Chicago is this weekend and I am supposed to be driving there. Grrr! Now it's not that big of a deal, and I understand the important thing is that nobody was hurt. I have rental insurance etc. The rental won't be as nice as my Murano, so that kinda sucks when I'm going to be driving for 12 hours this weekend. But seriously!?!? My Murano is just barely a year old, and this is the second accident it's been in. The first one was a really bad one. I was broadsided in the driver's side, my car spun in traffic 180 degrees, and I actually was VERY lucky to have walked away from that accident. The car was in the shop for almost 3 months!

I'm really frustrated right now, and I realize that the need to use profanity is a sign of a weak mind unable to express itself in more appropriate language, but all I want to do right now is scream FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK! Why couldn't that girl have been paying attention?!?! This is the 3rd accident I've been in in 15 months! Can I just have a break please?!?!

Ok, on a happy note I get to see Kathy Griffin on Saturday!
