So I was about to post in Thursday's bitchfest last night because my husband was super late coming home. He went out with some friends (he has a small business with them, but I guarantee this was more of a social get-together), and promised me that he "wouldn't be late." Well by the time it was 9pm, I was pissed, AND his phone was dead. As I was about to post on here, I got a phone call from a number that I don't recognize. It was him, and our car had been hit while parked (someone left a note, thank god), and I had to put our sleeping baby into a car seat and drive 20 minutes to get his ass. Then we were there until about midnight getting it towed, the claim filed, blah blah blah.
And I LOVE our car. He insisted on taking that car to work and out yesterday (which I won't let him live down for a while). Some backstory: last year when we knew that a family wasn't far off, we traded in my car (my beautiful lime green mustang that I loved) to get a sedan, but we're both car obsessed. I've always loved German cars, and I totally thought that this car was out of our league, but we got a great deal on a used 2013 Mercedes Benz C300 (black, of course). I was so happy that this car would last us for many years to come and be a super safe car for the family. Well last night it got smashed by a FIRE TRUCK. Wtf?!?!?!? Now we're dealing with the headache of insurance and police reports and rental cars. I just want to cry... again.
I've had my share of accidents, and I've been pretty spoiled with nice vehicles since my dad is obsessed with cars as well. I drove a purple mustang in high school/college ('96), then a shitty 1986 Accord when insurance dropped me for accidents hah (nicknamed put-put), then the green mustang ('06), now we have an Xterra and the Benz.
What do you guys drive? Any good car stories?
