Do you ever get the feeling that you've done exactly the same thing before? Remember a few months ago when I wrote about my car accident and how it was the first car accident I'd had in nine years of driving? Well fast forward seven months (yes thats right a mere seven months) and you guessed it, its happened again. Talk about bad luck.
Here's the clincher..... the second accident was again on the way home from work, again on a Friday, again at about 6pm at night, again on exactly the same road as before (albeit a bit closer to work) and again I was rear ended whilst completely stationary in traffic! WTF? Seriously there were at least a hundred cars on the road just in between the two closest sets of traffic lights to the accident, how in the hell did I manage to be the only one who got hit???? I swear my car is a magnet for stupid people and I'm not sure why.
Once again I got to go for a ride in the ambulance to the hospital. No sirens or lights though, ripped off. I was only there for a few hours for observation as my blood pressure and heart rate were high. I didn't actually get injured this time although I did hit my head in the collision again, but it wasn't as bad as before. The doctors tried and failed twice to put in a drip because my veins are like invisible. By the way I am super scared of needles so that was probably more scary than the accident. I have a huge bruise to show for it too. Thankfully after that some other doctors came past and said I could go (before the evil doctor could come back with the needles again). Four hours in the hospital again, but this time the doctors actually seemed to care about me - it was a different hospital than before. Still I am thankful that I didn't get hurt, it could have been a lot worse.
I am slightly sceptic that by writing about this it may cause it to happen again....
Lets hope I'm not right.
