It’s 2018, im in school for something I love, I bought myself a nice used truck (2004 explorer) life couldn’t be any better. I was on cloud nine. I guess I was having too good of a time with my life because the universe hit me upside the head.
While working a seasonal job at the outlet mall early February I got a call from the mall security that a delivery driver backed into my truck and ruined my rear bumper. They couldn’t (or maybe wouldn’t) tell me who the driver was, or for what store because the mall had no cameras.
“I can fix this” I said to myself, and so I did. With white tape. 😥 I didn’t want to call my insurance amd have my rates go up. I also didn’t want to worry my parents, so tape did tje job. An ugly job, but tje bumper wasn’t going anywhere.😂
I’m a server, so my hours (can be wonky.)
It’s May! The sun is out, the flowers are blooming, people are drinking and enjoying their life, I forgot all about my car and the tape holding it up. I couldn’t be knocked sown from my cloud…or so i thought.
Come mid May, it’s Friday night and I’m at work, I close up at around 3am Saturday morning. I get home tired and realize the only parking available is on the side street, about four houses down. No big deal. I’ve parked further before. I’m getting ready for bed, so close to laying my head down, so SO very close when I hear a crash and a screech. I got nosy and decided to investigate the sound. I stick my head out the closest window, a car speeds by blowing the stop sign in front of my house. “He probably has to poop” I think to myself as I chuckle. Out of the corner of my eye I see my car in the middle of the street!! I go and investigate, someone hit my baby and ran. 😭😭 I called the police but all they could do was take a statement. They towed my car, cost me $250.
The truck needed a new transmission, and the front axle replaced, great.
The same day, at around noon I call my insurance and explain everything. The woman on the other line informs me in a very quiet voice that the insurance wasn’t going to cover much. Maybe $200, and my rates were going to to up..What!! I’m in a pickle now. I thank her for her honesty and hang up. Now Broken hearted and without a car.
I’ve been relying on people for rides, but that never ends well. I’m going to be forced to take a semester off of school in order to pay for the damages.
If you’re reading this and you can help me, please please do. I’ll love you forever. ❤❤❤
I’m $2,000 in the gutter. 😥
