Monday Sucked!

Sorry but it did. My plan was to get up Monday & get my arm workout done. We had a busy weekend & I was tired. I woke up at 12:30 Monday morning & decided sleep would be more important & I turned off the alarm. No biggie, I'd just have to work out when I got home from work. 

Everything was just fine until the drive home. I was at a red light waiting to make a right turn & bam, someone ran into the back of me. I wasn't hurt but I was mad. It was raining a little too. I got out to check out the damage & the little punk that hit me said we needed to move out of the road. This was while I was getting wet & he was sitting in his car.  While I was moving to the parking lot I was on the phone with the police. When I hung up the phone punk boy was standing outside my door. I rolled the window down. Now it's raining harder & I'm getting wetter which is not making me any happier or less annoyed. Punk boy proceeds to tell me that I can't call the cops because "I've been drinking". Um what? It's 5:30 on a Monday. He proceeds to tell me all about how he was drinking & he's on probation for a DUI that ends tomorrow (today) & that if he gets caught he goes to jail for 5 years. Seriously. I can't make this stuff up. 

The first thing that come to mind is this little shit is trying to make me feel guilty. Then he starts calling me ma'am. I realize I'm no spring chicken but he had to be late 20's or early 30's & it was really annoying me. He told me he'd pay me cash tomorrow to fix the damage. Yeh ok. Clearly you're trustworthy & do the right thing. I told him the police were on their way & rolled up my window. I was tired of getting wet. Silly me thought he was going back to his car to wait for the police. After all, he did follow me to the parking lot.  Well, that's not what happened. He got in his car & sped off. Luckily, I was thinking a little bit & managed to get his license plate number. 

An hour passed & the cops still weren't there. By this time the rain had stopped & the sun was shining. I called back. I told them about the guy leaving. They upgraded me to a hit & run. 20 minutes later the cop arrived.  According to his computer the guy that hit me was driving a car that was registered to someone else & supposedly, the car has insurance. Someone mentioned that if the kid was on probation for a DUI, he probably was driving with a suspended license. I see this becoming a huge nightmare for us. 

So now we wait. 5-7 days for a police report & go from there. I know I'm lucky, I know it could've been worse, blah blah blah. None of that makes it any less annoying.  

Damage could've been much worse but it still has to be fixed which is sure to be a hassle. 

Needless to say I didn't get my workout done when I got home. This morning was a run day. Cindy ran part of it with me. When I got up at 4:30 the heat index was 95 degrees. I'm not kidding. That's just crazy. 

We got it done though! 

Here's to today being a better day!



  1. Ugh!!!!! Ugh!!!! So annoying. I'm glad you're ok!

  2. Girl that's crazy! Sometimes, people really truly suck. Sorry he took off. I had a kid hit me one time and tell me she was on probation and would give me $10 to fix my bumper. Lucky for us, an off duty cop saw what happened and stayed with me until an on-duty cop arrived. She couldn't go anywhere! Hope you guys get it all straight without too much of a headache!

    1. I know right! I'm hoping it's not a huge hoorah. We had decided we were going to trade in my Explorer & get something new so now we have to wait & get this figured out. Just so annoying. Have a great day!
