After an already stressful and busy week, where nothing went as smoothly as you’d want it to go, to be in a car accident is a bummer. To be in a car accident because of your own mistake is really shit. To be in a car accident because of your own mistake, which is likely going to cost you another grand in euros is absolutely fucking shitbox, especially when you’ve just come out of the tail end of a very expensive period, and are looking to move, with all its inherent costs.
Long story short; I was backing up while standing still in front of a stoplight, with the intention of moving to another lane. I could’ve sworn there was nobody standing behind me – I know I checked – but there was. Result; small dents in my trunk, and a big dent in my rear fender.
