Friends, I had another car accident yesterday. I was in a left turn lane, waiting for an opportunity to turn into a little strip mall where an Indian restaurant was allegedly located. There were two lanes of traffic going in the opposite direction, and traffic in the closest lane to me had stopped because it was backed up from a light. Someone stopped to allow clearance for me to turn and waved me through - I did not see the Honda Pilot coming up on the outside lane. It struck the back rear passenger door.

It was a slow-speed event, and the damage to my car was remarkably localized (thankfully). I'm now thigh-deep in bureaucracy - insurance, tow truck, rental company (because this happened while I was out of town at a conference). It all seems very complicated, especially because I used my company credit card to pay for the rental, which may mean the company is implicated? I'm just trying to take one thing at a time and not let my thoughts spiral into catastrophe.

[profile] siriaeve was in the car with me, and I thank my lucky stars that she was not hurt. Oof - it's hard to think that I put her in danger. But we are okay, and things will be okay, and [profile] siriaeve has been a trooper, and there are many distractions at my conference.

I would like for 2017 to QUIT now. Seriously. :(

Oh sweetheart. I'm so pleased that no-one was hurt, but what a tangle for you. I hope that it is easily sorted out. I'm glad that you have conference distractions this week.

I'm glad you're both okay! But ack, what a bureaucratic nightmare -- I'm so sorry. I hope that the conference is not merely distracting but also interesting and useful, that you have people around you to support you, and that you have some time for yourself in the midst of everything. ♥

oh no! I'm glad no one was injured, and that it wasn't your car that was damaged.

UGH. 2017 certainly seems to have had it in for you! I'm glad that you and everyone involved are OK; I hope that you have minimum repercussions from this, including physical reactions, because I bet you're wearing your shoulders for earrings right now. *HUGS*

I am okay! Slap some Neosporin on me (well, not slapping because friction burns) and I'm fine <3

Oh, yikes, you really are having rotten luck. I'm very glad you weren't hurt and that you weren't alone for it, but my goodness you could do without this. Hope all the bureaucracy is sorted with as little difficulty as poss, and that this doesn't knock you off your groove too much. *big hugs*

Oh eep! That's awful! I'm so glad you're both okay, but these are the sorts of adventures neither of you need!

*gentle hugs*

I hope it's a good conference, at least? <3
