So I just got in a little fender bender. How fucking fun, but lets Tarantino this and go back to the beginning.
So I was enjoying some Justice League while playing some New Super Mario Brothers on my DS and I get an IM from kimmandercool saying she was hungry, eventually we decided to get some sushi, so out we headed. Eat eat eat, yum yum yum. We say goodbye and off we go. As I am backing up I hear a quick beep then a bang. Yay accident. Not much happened, I was going maybe 1mph, I didn't even have my foot on the gas. I think dude was speeding through because I checked and saw no one, but alas, we made contact. Dude was surprisingly cool about everything. His car ( isn"t so badCollapse ), he was just glad no one was hurt and his car was still drivable so he could go out and party. Long story short we exchange info, call the cops, the cop gets there and was all "yeah?" and dude was "uh... we got in an accident...", cop was "yep, and?" and dude was "I dunno, I thought we were supposed to call" and cop says "you have choices, you can settle this yourself, or you can file a report and have it all go through insurance", so dude says "well, yeah, lets file a report" and the cop gets all pissy and fills out his shit. Bottom line is I got no ticket, cop was cool about that, he said "It was a small accident, you know to be more careful, and I'm sure you don't really want a ticket on top of fixing your car". I held back a laugh and said thank you. My new car will be here in a few weeks and there is like no damage to my car, so like hell I'm fixing anything.
Anyway, the shit that really gets me is all the shit that goes into the making of an accident, all the minute coincidences that go into. Such as follows:
*I have know Kimi via the myspace for about 2 years I think, we have discussing hanging out before, but nothing ever came of it, well today we finally went and did something. So that got me out of the house to begin with.
*We were going to go to Bonzai, but they were closed for a private party, so we went across the street to Thai Thai, which put me in the accident location
*Our server was shit and took forever to get us anything, and when we went to pay he was no where to be found, so we searched him down to pay so we could leave. We walked to her car, quick hug and good bye, then I walked to my car, started it, backed up and CRASH. Had we waited for our server to come get our money, had we had a faster server, had we said a longer/shorter good bye, it could've been missed.
It is just insane all the tiny little things that go into effect to put you in that one spot for that one moment to cause an accident. It completely amazes me how everything that happens, no matter how small, can have a bigger impact down the line. The universe is amazing.
