A few weeks ago I drove through the T junction at the top of my mother in law's road - it seems I just looked right, or the other car was in stealth mode and/or pms or something, but I drove out into the road straight into the side of this other woman's car as she was passing.

We weren't going very fast, but a dent and a bash will always amount to enough to put my insurance premium up next year.

Now my car makes two different kinds of squuueeeeeeeeeee noise as I drive around. The piercing, high pitched noise delivered the sudden realisation to me that I need to change virtually everything about myself.

It's an exhausting revelation, I can tell you that much.

Your car is not you!

No, but I'm the one who drives into things I shouldn't :(

well at least you didn't injure anyone.
I was tempted to phrase it as "at least no-one was hurt", but to be fair it sounds like it was your fault.
Some day i'm going to get a flight to Bray and whip you into shape Jo.

Ms. Moon said...

Maybe not everything, dear Jo.

Jo said...

Heh, flight to Bray... no sounds as if, it was totally, uncategorically my fault.

Thanks, Mary.

Mr Ashbless did exactly the same thing a couple of years ago, so I doubt it had anything to do with PMS. Car right in front of us: he just didn't see it.

Was it silver? This one was silver, maybe it blended with the road. Stealth micra, I'm sure of it.

Weirdly, the other woman's name was Jo too. What if she was me in twentyfive years?

Hope you're ok. And we all make mistakes, especially when we have a lot on our minds x

I am GLAD you are OK. That high pitched sounds like there is a misalignment of the axel.

You may need to repair it but you most certainly do not need to repair yourself. Be nice to yourself! Would you say that to a friend? Fix the car. Just work on being good to YOU1
