This summer has been one frantic project to another so far, with none of them being my cars yet.
Today I was driving to a friend’s wedding, looked down to read the printed directions, and hit another car. It was about the lightest collision that could happen on a road — some paint swapped bumpers — but I’m still shaken up by it. The guy didn’t want to get insurance involved, and asked for $20 to forget about it. I emptied my wallet — all $21 worth — and we carried on.
I wish very much that I had been carrying more cash on me, $21 is not enough to forgive myself to another person on the road for being distracted while driving.
Live and learn I suppose.
