Well today was a very special Monday, more special than most..most people have a disdain for Monday’s, myself included but today topped it.
I woke up for work as normal..but I had a horrible Migraine so I decided to call in sick and take some rest at home..I slept until pretty late and dragged myself out of bed to go and get some food, I was still feeling pretty blur and sleepy and probably should’t have gone anywhere, but well I did.
I rolled out to get some food and drink and disaster struck as I was turning onto the LDP.
There is a junction where you turn out and cars are also coming fast from the right, bypassing a jammed junction (they shouldn’t but they do), you can fit 2 cars down this stretch though so as long as you make a tight turn it’s fine.
There was a puke green kancil in front of me that should have been pulling out, I was checking the right for lorries, turned back to go forward and realised (too late) the Kancil in front of me for no apparent reason decided not to go anywhere..bang, fuck, WTF my bonnet?!?
It was a 10km/h collision, no one was hurt thankfully (apart from my pride and my wallet) and all is ok. Typical for me, I’ve done a similar thing before (last time I blamed it on sun shining of a rainy road surface..)
But in all honestly I’d prefer to have this kind of minor accidents now and then rather than something serious, no one is hurt, no major damage to the car.
The bonnet is wrecked, the front wing too, but both side panels are ok and most importantly no damage to the engine, radiator is fine.
I mean I hit a freaking Kancil but from the damage you’d imagine I’d driven into the back of a tank..
I think it’s because I hit it at a weird angle and it was downhill, seems like the bonnet took most of the impact..
Oh well another day another dollar..
I did manage to finally buy a nice looking ergonomic and reasonbly priced office chair for my now clean office..just need to fix my damn PC!
I have some other stuff to blog about, but this takes precedence..
My beautiful car is no longer beautiful, but well after repairs I’m hoping it’ll be more beautiful than ever.I can also get the windscreen replaced as it has a crack in it the size of the nile.
There are a few other dents and scratches I can sort out at the same time too seen as though I’m claiming insurance..
It’s my first year of insurance here so I have no NCB to lose, I’ll just lose the 25% discount I would get after the first year with no claims.
That’s a hell of a lot less than paying for the damage to my car and the minor damage to the puke green Kancil. At least this country has no excess..
But what is this bullshit about having to pay to make a police report? That’s one of the stupidest things I’ve heard…what incetive do people have to settle things through the correct channels with such stupid beauraucractic legislations as this. PAY to do the RIGHT thing…that’s back to front no? You should PAY for doing the WRONG thing.
Hopefully it won’t take too long or I’ll be stranded and carless..Holiday season is coming soon too, will need to do some driving around to collect Ang Pows 🙂
That’s all for now folks..
ARGH FUCK MONDAYS FUCK THEM IN THEIR STUPID ASSES!
