So, I was driving on my way to college this morning, in a two-lane road with four other cars. I'm at the back of the pack.
The two lanes merge into one, and everyone's tightly compacted. It's raining, and the guy in front decides to stomp on the brakes to turn down another road.
This causes the second car to swerve around the first, making the second and third slam on their brakes. I slam too, but slide. I swerve towards the shoulder to avoid the car in front of me, but it's too late. I rear-end him.
The third car pulls over with us so he can tell the officer that responds his part of the story, and my car gets towed. Leaking transmission fluid everywhere, two doors stuck shut, the hood and the left headlight smashed in. And a dented radiator.
Car was towed to the body shop, and had to bum a lift from my mother to get to the campus. Fear my car's totaled.
I think the most honest ad I've seen on television was the "Nationwide" insurance ad where they replaced a man's car with a giant baby: m.youtube.com/watch?v=x58tgSOF…
Waiting to hear the insurance estimate feels like waiting for blood test results...
