Apparently the woman who hit my daughter, her boyfriend and their son, has multiple arrests. The latest was last year for felony drug possession with intent to sell. She was driving on a suspended license. I think they said that was the second time her license had been suspended.
From what I understand, she was charged while she was in the ER but I don’t know what the charges were.
It really doesn’t matter because she was so under-insured. D is having to collect on his own insurance. Even if they sued her, you know the old saying…”you can’t get blood from a turnip.”
I tried to keep their spirits up and make them laugh. I told them about my conversation with my RBS and then told them that my friend had asked if she and her husband could use me as a personal reference. (I’ll call them Hope and Chuck.)
I told her sure but I really didn’t think anybody would call. I’ll be doggone! They called. Hope asked me what I told them.
I said “I told them I had known you for thirty years.” I told them you “weren’t hooking as much as you used to because you’re getting some age on you and although Chuck is in prison, he’s up for parole just any day now.”
I think they enjoyed moms’ sense of humor.
They are slowly recovering. They still have bruises and scrapes. N’s legs are bruised and scratched. They still have trouble sleeping and moving their necks. They’re still pissed off. But they’re young and healthy so I think they’ll be alright.
Statistics say that one in every six people will be involved in an automobile accident in their lifetime. Hmmm. There were six of us in our “family.”
Here are our statistics:
Loser: 3 times.
Me: 4 times.
My oldest: 1 time.
My middle: 2 times.
My youngest daughter: 4 times.
My son: 1 time.
Total: 15 times.
Can somebody say “dark cloud?” Do we all have a sign on our back that says “hit me….please?”
All of these were a result of drunk drivers, “high” drivers, sleepy drivers and distracted drivers. We were just in the wrong place at the wrong time.
One good note….maybe we have taken the hits for others.
