Je suis desole...

Yesterday’s night I was involved in a car accident. Thank God nothing serious happened but my poor little baby was damaged – my car was hit, damn it!! It was pouring for hours, the traffic was awful all the way from office to home, streets were very slippery, many cars were broken along the way making it even worse, but until then it was just a boring drive, nothing else. Than near home traffic was getting better and maybe for this reason drivers became more relaxed, although it was still raining a lot. Anyway people started to drive a little faster until somebody suddenly stopped in front of me, maybe 2 or 3 cars ahead. Other drivers stopped too, including me, but the guy behind me couldn’t do that, probably his brake failed, and my car… well, it was hit. The shock made me hit the one in front of me, and that’s curious because it wasn’t damaged, while my poor baby looks like this now. The guy who hit me was quite nice, though, he has insurance and that’s a good thing, it’ll cover all repair costs but until it’s done I’ll be "carless" for few days, which is quite annoying. Je suis desole… :(

Awww, how awful! Your poor car! And poor you! I hope you really didn't get too big a shok. Promise you'll call a doctor if you feel any nausea or your neck starts to hurt. I hope it won't though!

Thanks, girl - it was just a (bad) surprise, nobody was really running so none of us got hurt. But I'm missing my poor baby, all alone waiting to be repaired while I'm facing buses!

Thanks! None of us was on high speed, so only cars were damaged, which is also a pity, but I'm glad it wasn't worse!

I'm sorry about your car, Adriana. It must be difficult to be carless in a city like Brasília.
At least nobody got hurt. Take care!*hugs*

Thanks, A. - nobody got hurt and that should be enough but being without car... ::cries::

Thank goodness you're all right! But I know, being carless sucks.

Yeah, it sucks... dude, I can't imagine how I'll survive next 10 days!

Oh no! I'm so glad you're all right, although I know it'll suck to be carless. {{hugs}}

although I know it'll suck to be carless.

Please don't say it... ::sobs::

I'm sorry to hear about your car, Adriana, but I'm glad nobody got hurt. I've been in two car accidents myself, both minor, but it is a pain, especially the burocracy in getting the insurance to pay and being carless while it's being fixed.

I wasn't even all that worried, but my brother had just gotten his licence (that very day, actually) and was pretty upset that he had to wait weeks before he could officially drive. Poor thing, I felt so bad...

Hopefully your car will be ready soon and you won't have to suffer with the bus for long.

I'm glad all of you were fine, Ana. Unfortunately it'll take me some time until having my car back... :(

Like everyone else has been telling you, Adriana, the important thing is that no one got hurt. What kind of public transportation does Brasilia have? A good one? Just cheer up, sweetie, and remember that you have friends who are deal with buses all the time. I'm sure the ten days will go by quickly. *hugs*

Brasília doesn't have enough buses for all its inhabitants, Karen, my colleagues are always complaining about it. It'll be hard to depend on them during next weeks. But there's nothing I can do, I'll have to accept this new situation. :(

Thank God you didn't get hurt! - That's the most important thing. *HUGS*

Thanks sweetie, but just thinking about my poor baby all alone in that garage, waiting to be fixed... ::cries::
Oct. 7th, 2006 06:03 pm (UTC)
ACK! I'm so glad you weren't injured. Terribly sorry about your poor car. ::hugs::

Thanks girl, I'm really missing it!
