Howdy folks. I hope things have been going better for you than they have been for me lately. On the afternoon of Nov. 14th I was on my way to pick up my son from school. I stopped to get something to eat and drink and when leaving the place I pulled out onto the street and up to a red light. The guy in front of me decided to throw it into reverse and back right into me. He caused $1325 in damage to my truck which was promptly repaired last week. I picked up the truck at 6:00 on Wed. the 21st and went right home. With the holiday and having fifteen people over on Thanksgiving I haven't driven much since picking it up. In fact I've only driven it about 25 miles tops over the past three days.
This afternoon at about 4:00 I paid some bills and headed off to the post office to mail them. After dropping them in the mail I decided to stop at the Goodyear dealer in town and price out a new set of tires for the truck. With winter not far away I figured I'd rather get it done now and have good meat on the road. I got the price and told the guy that I might be back in a week or so and get them installed. I left the place and got into my truck and headed home. Actually, I was going home to fax a copy of the accident report to my agent so she could close the claim. I'm sitting there waiting for traffic to clear and turn onto the street when all of a sudden, BANG this guy runs right into the side of my truck! He just threw it into reverse and started backing out without even looking. I can't even believe it but I've been driving and paying auto insurance for 27 years and never made a collision claim. Now I have TWO in twelve days!
Again, I hope your day has been better than mine.
