Why do things happen in groups? Have you ever noticed that? You'll have a stretch where things are working well and humming along and then all of a sudden everything seems to fall apart.
I swear it's been like that here--you remember how I was hit by another car back in June? No injuries except to my beloved minivan and it was all sorts of trauma to get that thing fixed. Don't get me wrong, State Farm was great to us but it was damaged enough they were going to declare it a total loss and you know they never give you enough to actually replace your car. Well our body shop worked with our insurance and worked some more to get it down where we could get it fixed and it's been in the shop for weeks now.
So we're "roughing it" as a one-car family, I run Andrew to work in the morning and pick him up at night on days when I need the car and since it's been summer it hasn't been too bad. Until now.
Andrew was driving back to work on the highway--in the car that he's only had about three months--and he was following a truck that was pulling a boat. There was a seat on the boat that wasn't attached properly and out of nowhere the seat blew off the back at 65 mph. Of course Andrew was okay (I don't like to think about what could have happened) but of all things it landed on his hood, smashing everything up before dragging over the grill and going down underneath the car.
He felt pretty sheepish calling State Farm again to report a second accident before the paint was even dry on the first repairs. Again, not our fault but still . . . I wonder if they have a "bad luck" motorist clause in there somewhere that will knock our premiums up?
And we're still without a car . . .
