Annnd This Is The Reason Teenage Drivers Make Me Crazy  
So all was good and I was looking forward to a better day at work today and getting back into fic for tonight. Anissa and I were actually discussing plot for her fic when BAM! Some kid in a trunk runs a red light and whacks us in the nose. There's a pretty bad storm passing through and now we've been in a wreck. In November we collide with a deer, now a teenager in Daddy's truck without his insurance card. And the cop doesn't even cite him for it. Because he swears he was in the right. It's pouring and we have no independent witness [I don't count]. So, we're in a storm watch, I was supposed to be at work half an hour ago, I'm still shaking and freaked out, and mad enough to pound this kid like a tent stake.

And I have to go to work after this.

I want a fucking cigarette.

I wouldn't worry about the whole fault thing- I can tell you from experience no one gives a fuck what the younger driver says. My own insurance company wouldn't even listen to me over my claim because the other driver was 40 and therefore was clearly in the right.

Do you not have red-light cameras there? I wouldn't worry if you were right though, teenagers break, he'll forget what he told them and the story will change or something. They'll catch it. Just make sure your insurance company is on your side, unlike mine.

I really wish we had the cameras, but it seems that's not the case, which is just stupid for a city this size. I mean, the thing's freaking enormous! I think we're actually the largest city in the US, size-wise. All we can hope is that Anissa's better record will win out. *grits teeth*
