Post Good day & Bad day.:)..:(

Well my day was going great. My new tires came in and i took my new Prodive P7 wheels down to the shop to get them mounted. After they finnaly got the beads on i was on my way. Headed to the car wash to clean my car and make it look all spiffy.

I did a nice drive and was testing the tires.. And i decided to head into Albany, NY for some lunch. OK i wil grab some quick Chinese food and then go home.

So i pull out of the Chinese place and get into traffic. Go thru a couple stop lights. And at the last stoplight before the highway home, BAMM i get hit from behind. Damn. What was that. This big guy get outa his Jeep Cherokee and yells at me for being stopped at the stoplight. It was red and there are 8-10 other cars infront of me. Am i suppose to drive though them or something? He didn't see the point of stopping at a red light. But oh well.

So we pull off the main road into a parking lot and i call the police. I copied down all of his info and stuff and then he says he is going home and i can call his insurance. umm.. well the police aren;t here yet. He says he is tired and going home, heres my # if you need anything.

The police show up about 5 minutes later and ask where the other guy is. I explained that he was too busy or tired to wait for you and he left. So now the officer is pissed. (not at me) He writes up the police report gives it to me and is going to go visit the other guy and charge him for leaving the scene of a accident, plus he has to pay for the damage to my car.

Well i am done ranting now. That was my mixed up day. How was anyone elses?

Unhappy

Got the estimate today. $1841., New bumper, new tail lights, and fix the rear quarter panel and paint it all to match.
