Ok, I don't want to be a burden to anyone, but I really just need to get this off my chest. But if anyone else has had anything bad happen to them and would like to share and complain, please feel free! The holidays are supposed to be fun and carefree and enjoyable, but mine are anything but. They feel totally ruined now! I got home from college last Sunday. I wasn't extremely thrilled to be home because college is fun, and I live in a small town, so there isn't much to do. Anyhoo...I was going to pick my brother up from school yesterday, and then we were going to meet my mom at the elementary school where she works. My dad was also going to meet us there, and we were going to leave for Safford because my brother had an orthodontist appointment and then we were going to have chinese food for dinner. Well, I was driving to the high school, and I was on a street with no stop signs. I was approaching the last intersection in this neighborhood, and the cross street has a stop sign since I don't. Well, as I approached this intersection, no one was at the stop sign. I get almost all the way through the intersection and I hear this loud crash and my truck starts to fish tail. Turns out some stupid kid ran the stop sign and nailed me. So now the back left side of my truck is crushed. From the wheel back is messed up...which means new bumber, new overfender, and the cover I had put on the back of my truck is messed up too. It didn't get crushed, but it won't unlock now cuz it got shifted and there are cracks in the paint around the locks, so that's $800 right there. He said his mom was talking to him so he was distracted. Gee, thanks a lot. When I was in high school I drove a piece of felgercarb that was about 12 years old, so I wasn't one of those kids who had a brand new car waiting for them when they turned 16. Well, when I was leaving for college my dad bought me a new Toyota Tundra since I would be driving a lot (there is a 5 1/2 hour drive between where I live and where I go to college) and I would need a car that would get me there. So basically this &$^%#^&% hit me in my truck that I've only had for 4 1/2 months. I am just so pissed right now. And who knows how long it will take to get fixed seeing as how it's the holidays and everything has limited hours. I mean, 4 1/2 months, and it's already f-ed up. I could've killed him. Seriously. And the police report won't be ready until Monday, and the dealership's auto shop isn't open until Monday, and then they are closed on Tuesday and Wednesday. So Monday we'll get an estimate, and then they can't start fixing it until Thursday at the soonest....if I should be that lucky! GRRRRRRR! Now I am stuck here with nowhere to go because I don't have a vehicle. So much for going skiing with my cousins. I mean, this totally ruins the holidays...I wish I could send every present back in exchange for my truck being okay. I was just so happy to have a new truck...I was so proud of it. And now this. All I can see in my head is what my truck looks like now. It will never be the same to me. And not to mention insurance. I hope it doesn't go up. The accident wasn't my fault. But the way insurance works nowadays they'll probably make me pay even more. Shoot, I don't even know if I was cited for anything. The cop never said I was, but I didn't ask either. I shouldn't be since he hit the back of my truck, it's obviously his bad. With my luck I'm sure the cop will come up with something to cite me for...like failure to avoid an accident. Yeah, the damn eyes in the back of my head weren't working....sorry. ^&%&@#^##^^@%%!%!^%@^&#@^#^@%^@#^@#%@%^# Okay, end of rant. Thanks for listening.
