While driving a friend to her hair dresser appointment on Saturday past (December 21st), I got rear-ended as I was waiting to merge onto a busy street. The other guy was 100% at fault. He knew it, and gave me his business card. Turns out he owns an auto body shop. Said he’d fix it right up, just call him on Monday.
So – we forewent insurance and police report. More fool me. The old man (yes, he’s a geezer), is willing to fix the car, but only at his garage way the hell far away from me, and no, of course he won’t give me a loaner car while mine is being repaired. I asked him how I can get home then, well, that, apparently, is my problem.
I called my insurance company, and especially because I have only 1-way coverage, I am screwed. The agent told me that the man is only responsible to fix the car. It sucks that he’s not being more accomodating, but unless he refuses to repair the car, there is nothing I can do.
So – I’ll have to find someone to drive behind me and bring me home, then repeat the process to pick up the car. Or have to ride several buses for 2 hours. And I will miss at least one, probably more, days of work. If I don’t work, I don’t get paid – so this accident, which is not my fault at all, is costing me quite a lot in the end.
I have one word for the geezer – A**H***e!
