Why $500 you ask? Well that's how much my car insurance deductible is my friend. I present to you the case of ALICE VS. MAILBOX. Unfortunately, neither party won.
This evening,I was jammin out to Maroon 5 at 4:05 as I was leaving work and was high on life. This was my only free night this week to make the hubs some supper and just kick back and relax. I was thinking of what I should make.... steaks maybe? Meat loaf? La dee da dee da.... as the song goes "I am in miserrryyyy...." I look up, and BING BANNNNGGGG BOOOMMMM..... Mailbox.
Not just any mailbox, a mailbox on a good, sturdy, metal post. It flies off, vehicle parts flying everywhere, me freaking out..... CRAP CRAP CRAAAPPPPPP. (Sorry, this post needs some all caps.)
Anywho, the guy happened to be standing outside when it happened, so we chatted, exchanged info, and I went about my way. A friend from work was behind me and also saw it happen so she followed me home. At this point, I was so upset at myself and couldn't stop thinking about what hubs would say. He was gonna be so mad. Especially since I just paid a 150 dollar speeding ticket the 1st of the month... UGHHH.
I had to bungee my bumper on so I could drive home but Alice is in okay shape. It's all merely cosmetic but she looks a hot mess.
The bungee holding her together... :(
Even my freaking hood and mirror (which still works, she's hangin on by her cords...)
So we just got off the phone with USAA. I'll have a rental for awhile and will have to say buh-bye to my pretty hard top convertible. Even though I'm pretty sure she's cursed.... **sigh**
