Deja vu

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.

So again I am without a car for I don't know how long. On the upside it will be shiny and new again once it comes back. The funny part about the phone call to the insurance company was when she asked if there was any previous damage. I think my answer went along the lines of "well seven months ago my rear bumper was all smashed in the same as it is now, but you fixed it for me before it got hit again today". Oh yea and exactly the same tow truck driver towed my car! And he magically turned up out of nowhere like before. I swear I will be on a first name basis with the tow truck driver and everyone at the insurance company soon. Thats not to say that I want it to happen again. Are you listening universe?? Keep the stupid people away from me when Im driving and especially in heavy traffic.

I am slightly sceptic that by writing about this it may cause it to happen again....

Lets hope I'm not right.
