View Full Version : OT - My car is ruined!
05-11-2007, 01:32 PM
I was just trying to find a parking space here at work and found one, so when I started to back up, I went over a curb. I pressed the brake, which turned out to be the gas, and went zooming by a tree. Now my beautiful little baby blue car is bashed up on the back driver's side end and my mirror on that side is dangling and mirrorless. I want to throw up. :pout:
Goodness!! That is not a good way to start the day.
But while this is horrible just remember it IS fixable. YOU are okay. As bad as it is, the things that are broken are things that are reparable. Breathe. Relax. It could have been MUCH MUCH worse.
While this isn't helping (sorry) I personally am thankful that YOU are safe. Cars/mirrors/trees are replacable. YOU are not. :hug:

Strangely, I can really feel your pain. When I was pregnant with my 2nd daughter, I had to park on the roof (3rd level) of this TINY parking garage at work. Being a TINY garage, it had an even TINIER access ramp. Well, you guessed it, one day I misjudged the turn while trying to get down at the end of the day, and completely scraped up the whole length of the right side of my car. UGH. I cried for a couple of hours, but finally came to the conclusion that I was OK, the baby was OK, so really, it was not *that* big a deal. :P It's all relative, right?
Anyway, HUGS to you!! :hug:

Car accidents are scary, I know. Just remember: It's sheet metal. It's replaceable. You aren't!

Thanks everyone! My back and neck are starting to hurt a little, but other than that I'm fine. :hug: :muah:

That really really stinks, but I'm so glad you're alright. Don't get too down about it, things will look up! :hug:

:hug: :hug: :hug: . Have a nice cup of tea, it will soothe you. At least that's my excuse. Hope you get your car sorted and you feel better. :hug:

What an awful way to start your day! I'm glad that you're ok though! :hug:

I do want to echo that YOU are irreplaceable, and we're glad you're safe.
Abbilly, I just did almost the EXACT same thing... The entrance to the garage at my apartment building goes down a steep hill next to a retaining wall. I have to swing the car really wide and do a 3-point turn to get into my space, as it's just inside the door; last week I decided to "try" turning right from the entrance to my space, and stupidly hugged the right wall so hard that I scraped all done the side. :wall: :doh: :wall: At least the stupid thing is paid for.

I rolled my car 1.5 times a few months ago... the day before uni started again.
