Remember when I crashed into a parked minivan this week, and no one was calling me back while the fear of the unknown grew and grew and started consuming my every waking thought?
Well, we finally got the phone call :) And it couldn’t have gone any better:
“Hey, just wanted to let you know that the car is totally fine. You’re a sweetheart for leaving the note though – sorry it took me so long to call you back. I actually just saw it a few hours ago and wanted my husband to double check the car before I called you. So don’t worry about it – we’re good!”
Heart/Mind/Wallet relieved. The best outcome has come true, and now I can go rest my bones and NOT do any driving anytime soon… My caddy may still have that extra “character” on her going forward (no point in fixing it up when it’s been beat up pretty bad now), but it’ll be a nice reminder to *slow the F down* and be more careful in life… What a beautiful day!
