You know that I love you. And I just wanted to say that I'm sorry that I did not trust you. You are incased in my cute, pink cell phone and you always lead me to where I want to go. Plus, you never get mad and yell at me when I go the wrong way. Instead you just nicely say, "Recalculating route." It was wrong of me to doubt your capabilities yesterday afternoon. I should have trusted you and not looked down thinking, "Where is this thing sending me?! If I hadn't doubted you, I would not have ran the red light and crashed into that lady. I was wrong. You always know the right way. And even though I woke up with puffy eyes after all the crying I did yesterday...I still love you. Thank you for always knowing the right way and for reminding me that I should ALWAYS pay attention and be cautious while driving. I will not doubt you again. And I'm sorry.
So...yesterday I became a member of the "I've Been in a Car Accident Club," and I'm fairly certain that I never wanted to be a member of this club. While here in Dallas on business yesterday afternoon, I was heading to a college fair and got into a car accident. It was totally, 100% my fault. I kept driving while the light was red and drove right into a lady. Thankfully, no one was injured, we were just shaken up, and luckily, she was driving an Enterprise Rental Car too (boy, I'm sure that company LOVES us!). I messed up the front of my car pretty badly, and after I turned it off and the cop checked it out, we realized that it was not drivable. So, it had to be towed away, as did my victim's car (because her side airbags deployed).
The whole thing was quite the escapade! There I was in the middle of a ghetto area of Garland, TX. On the way to an event. By myself. Never been in a car accident in my life. No clue what to do. Feeling guilty for hitting this lady, when it was all my fault that I wasn't paying attention. Worrying about calling my boss to tell her that I got into a car accident, which was all my fault. Watching my rental car get towed away and wondering what the heck I'm going to do now. Trying to figure out what to do with the insurance on the vehicle, since it was through my work. Dealing with the stupid people at Enterprise. Ugh!
Thankfully, the lady I hit was WAY nicer to me than I deserved, and I couldn't have asked for a better person to crash into. She and her husband even gave me a ride to the Enterprise location so that we could get new cars.
All in all, it was terrible experience: I'm now a member of the "I've Been In a Car Accident Club," I'm driving more cautiously than I have since I first started driving (though maybe that's a good thing), and everyone and their mother knows I got into an accident...but I'm totally fine and apparently, there is a first time for everything! :)
