I swear to God...

Okay so today I took my 87 Blazer to school just as a change of pace. On my way home, there's this huge intersection with a ridiculously long light, where everyone from my school winds up. We were coming up to that, and my best friend was in front of me, not close at all, doing about 40, and the guy in front of him decides to slam on his brakes to make a turn. My friend slams on his brakes, and I slam on mine, but lucky lucky me, i've got a 3000lb truck, and I just cant stop fast. I rear-ended him, with my truck completely unscathed from the ordeal, and the only thing done to him was his bumper is now bent in on the left side.

The best part is, he just leans out his window and starts laughing. He said he didn't even care, and he kind of liked the look. (He drives a '96 F-150)


So yeah, I can't have good days. I've decided that.

I know the feeling man, i was in my 93..JUST got my 18"focal f5's put on(chrome) and i come across the light following my friend to a merchants auto store to get my car inspected...well, someone decided to make a quick right turn into the gas station. I couldnt stop in time so i ran into the back of my friend. Broke my shogun kit in the front right in half, i dont even know how it stayed on. Only thing it did to my friend was it put a perfect square in his moms 88 honda accord. I was going like less than 15 mph when i hit him but since there wasnt a reinforcement bar there, the insurarce adjuster came out and was like, its totaled. Sux, but it was less than 800 to fix. so i still have my car.

yea...I was driving in my roll aone day and my ex was in the celi behind me...came up to a light...I braked...then BOOM! I was like wtf...I thought i stalled the rolla...so I kept goin a bit and saw him shakin his head behind me...he motioned to pull over...and I was like..wait a min...I got out and was like...did you hit me? He kinda half laughed and was like I'm sooooooooo sorry...looked at both the cars and thankfully, my rolla's rear bumper is a bitch and didn't even get a scratch, and the celi had a MD tag on the front so it didn't do n e thing to the celi either. We were both happy abt that, lol. I swear...old celis are tanks tongue thumbsup
