I've put tons of money into my crappy car over the last two months or so, and today I just got it inspected. It was washed a few days ago and looking good. All that was wrong was fixed...new tires, etc...
On the way home today from my girlfriend's house, some guy in a big truck plowed right into me. He went straight when I thought he was in a left turn only lane and was supposed to turn left. The driver side of my car is messed up now. The mirror has been knocked off and and the door is now hard to open and close, not to mention all the body damage. I don't even know really at this point who was at fault. At the time of the accident he said it was his fault, but then he later came back and said he wasn't sure anymore, that it could have been my fault.
He and I both actually think it's the city's fault because there were no signs indicating which lanes are what. There were three lanes, and he was in the far left. I was in the middle lane, and then there was a right turn only lane in the far right. At the intersection we were at, I've always turned left from the middle lane because there used to be signs at that intersection indicating that was a legal turn. But now there are no signs! I didn't even notice there were no signs until he pointed it out and I went back to the scene and looked myself. I think maybe I'm at fault but don't know for sure.
Sheesh, the guy who hit me asked me out to dinner. Can you believe that? When I said I wasn't sure what to do at this point, he said "Let me take you out to dinner and we can talk about it". I quickly informed him I was married!
