What??

March 27th, 2019 at 05:08 am

I can't believe it. I had another crash yesterday. This time I was just waiting in line to make a turn. The truck in front of me backed up for some reason. I wasn't quick enough to go into reverse, and he smashed my headlight and scratched up the bumper.

I filed a police report and will call his insurance company today. Meanwhile, I'll be driving with one headlight. This I didn't need just one week before my surgery.

It's pay day, though! I just paid the mortgage and will pay the two credit cards when the deposit is no longer in the pending stage.

I ended up with 89% in variables. I took the boys to lunch yesterday and the total for all of us was $17.

Here is the monthly recap:

Housing: $733
Car Repair/Maintenance: $500
Fees/Services: $190
Utilities: $177
Groceries: $106
Clothing: $85
Medical/Health: $58
Household Supplies: $56
Phone: $52
Eating Out: $52
Vacation/Travel: $40
Entertainment: $36
Gas: $23
Personal: $20
Gifts/Charity: $15
Laundry: $11
Fares/Parking: $7
Grand Total: $2172

The fee was mostly the Ancestry.com subscription. Clothing -- expensive socks and some clothes from Goodwill. Everything else is pretty typical, except, of course, for the $500 deductible I paid to get the car fixed.

Certainly hoping the other guy's insurance will pay this time.

    Oh no! Annoying for sure, but luckily no one was hurt.

    I don't think you should be held accountable. The other driver backed up and must have not checked adequately for what was behind him.

    So sorry. It really stinks you got hit. Glad you are OK, though.

    I'm glad you weren't hurt. You do seem to be an accident magnet as of late. I bet you feel it is getting a little ridiculous. You never back up in a turn lane when there are cars behind you. What was he thinking?

    I'm sorry to hear about the extra hassle but glad you are ok. At least he is insured. It's hard to imagine that they wouldn't cover it--it sounds pretty clearly his fault!
