Do you ever have those days that you wish you could just “do over”?!?! I don’t have too many, but I definitely had one of those days this week. All I wanted to do was hit the rewind button and start over.
Tuesday, started out like any other day, but ended like this.
Yep…that is the back of my SUV!! I wish I could say it wasn’t my fault, but nope it was! Ugh…epic fail! Let me replay my little fender bender for you! Tuesday was incredibly busy for me, so I decided to go to work earlier. I knew if I got to work earlier, I would be able to run all of my errands and then drive to my husband’s work for a softball game (he works 40 min. away).
When I arrived at work all the parking spots were taken, except for one. I started to pull into the spot and realized another car was parked over the line. I knew I couldn’t squeeze my SUV in the spot, so I decided to back out and find a new spot. The spot is close to the building and in an area with very little turnaround room. I was attempting to not hit the curb and a tree when I heard…..CRUNCH!!!!!! Are you kidding me!!!!
I quickly pull forward and hopped out to look at my SUV and the wall. Needless to say, the concrete cinder block wall won (no damage thankfully)! My SUV obviously wasn’t as lucky! I now had the task of telling my boss and my husband (I don’t know what was worse). My boss was incredibly grateful and found the whole situation funny! He told me accidents happen and as long as the concrete was intact it was no big deal. I was so embarrassed and felt really bad, but I kept my job!
Calling my husband wasn’t easy! I was afraid he would be incredibly upset, but he was not. His response, accidents happen, but send me a picture! What a relief!!! I thought, I was in the clear and then all of the sarcastic comments started!
The majority of the damage is paint transfer, so we are going to have it buffed out. I am just so grateful the damage was minimal, my husband wasn’t upset, and I kept my job! After my fender bender, I was pretty much done for. The incident left me scrambling to catch up the rest of the day. I so wish I could have a “do over”! Since, that isn’t possible, life moves on! I know the situation could have been much worse. I just am kicking myself for such a stupid accident!
