First Accident I Got Involved With

Okay, for the very first time i got involved into a car bump. I would not say it's a wreck for the damage to both cars are almost not recognizable. My car barely had a slight scratch on the bumper and so as hers. In fact, hers is almost like just got dusted off. So the woman freaked out and was yelling at me, got a big mouth over these people passing by us by the the private parking lot. While i kept repeating myself asking her an apology for what happened. She told me that i did not looked back. Actually i did, i looked back first to where i supposed to and gently backed up. But then when i turned my head on the left side she was there beside me already. I am assuming that she must have backed up so quickly than i did and was trying to beat me to get out from that parking lot.

I always back up so gently for i don't want to get involve something like this. It's a hassle, a time consuming and i don't want to get records most importantly and make my insurance rates high. She was insisting that it was my fault, for i did not looked at my blind spot. Well, like what i said, when i looked at my left side she was there all of the sudden out of nowhere. Luckily, there was witnesses, so one witness talked to the officer that took care of us how bad she felt for me for that the woman was exaggerating the situation, since there was hardly any damage, the fact it's not even worth calling the insurance to inform about it, but hubby said we will still to notify them ahead.

Anyway, i am so glad somehow because the witness was in favor to me. She said that accidents happens all the time and this time, the woman should not make a big deal out of it for it was barely a kiss, but it looked like the woman was so mad and about to attack me. So the witness did not leave until the police came so she can give her testimony. I thanked her and told her how i appreciate her concern and for being a good citizen. Actually it was her kids who pushed her to tell the officer what really happened. I was so calm while the woman was freaking out with big mouth.

The police told me that he's been working here for fifteen years and he knew the woman so well for she was involved with several car accidents already. And every time that she gets involved, she acts the same way and the officer is not surprised already. It somehow relieve me that the officer told me that there is nothing to worry about for i told him that it was the first accident i got involved with. I even told the officer that she was making a big fuss about our barely kissed bumper but then she did not even bother to buckle her daughter in the back. That is what she is upset about, she kept repeating herself that i might have hit her daughter in the back. So i told her that i have my kids in the back too, but the difference was mine were both buckled, hers wasn't. In fact when i came out from the car, the little girl was jumping in her car seat. Good thing we parked in the private parking lot so there was no citation. I thought that was a blessing in disguise for me. Most of all, we came home safe and sound.
