My accident...er... I mean Fate! :o)

Well perhaps I can figure out the FATE I incurred last night... totally my fault, long day, tired, wasn't paying attention obviously... and I rear ended the back of a 2009 Ford truck... I look up and see DEPUTY SHERIFF
on the tailgate...

GREAT just great.. no accident..er I mean Fate in over 10+ yrs and tonight (Thursday) I ass end a Deputy Sheriff... no damage to his truck... he was Marine Patrol and had a honkin' tow hitch that literally cracked my front bumper...nuff to about bend my front tag in half and knock it off.. SIGH... Thankfully no airbag deployed and I was not hurt.. a bit stiff today but that's ok..

of course he can't write the accident up so now I have to wait for another officer...  he comes and he can't write it up either... then a motorcycle highway patrol shows up... well guess what he can't write it either... must have been on some imaginary county line or something... so I comment about being so special to have 3 officers when I'm told a 4th is coming HE has to write up the accident... GREAT... so every passerby on this major road is looking at me like wow must be a drunk driver or drug bust there are 3 cops!

Finally the 4th gets there writes it up... Thank the Lord does NOT give me a ticket for the accident.. He said no one was hurt and you've got some costly damage to your front end... that's painful enough :o)  and yes it will easily be $1000 + at a body shop.... I mean come on I JUST started working....

I will say one thing... the south carolina officers sure are polite!
