So on Friday I have to go to the city where we used to live, as my step-mum had her hip operation on Thursday, so I went to visit her in hospital. It's a brand new hospital and I have never been before, but I know the area, so no biggie.
I turn to go into the parking lot and there is a car in front of me, and you have to stop to get a ticket from the machine before it lets you in the parking lot. Well this guy in front of me couldn't reach the machine, so instead of opening his door and stepping out, he decided to reverse, and drive back in.
One tiny little problem, he didn't bother to check his rear view mirror and reversed into me, despite the fact I put my hand on my horn. I know I should have got out of the way, but I was sure he must have seen me.
So this nurse was passing and she says "he hit you," now to be fair I didn't feel him hit me, so I knew it couldn't have been much. He pulls into the car park, I yell at him not to go anywhere, and I go into the car park, and park next to him.
I say "you just reversed into me?"
He says, "it was an accident."
We check my car and there was no damage. I can't remember what I said next, anyhow, he says "well its your fault, as you were too close behind me."
EXCUSE ME??? I was a good distance behind him and if he had bothered to check his mirror, he could have reversed but not as far back as he did. So now I am NOT A HAPPY CAMPER. If I could have got my hands around his scrawny neck I would have throttled him.
How can it be MY FAULT that someone reversed into me?????
Maybe I am a rotten driver, as I seem to have had a run of bad luck. I pull my car into a parking lot, and the woman in the next space gets out of the car and bangs her door into my car.
I nearly get run off the road last week, this week a truck pulled out into my lane without looking, again a close call.
And now a guy reverses into me and tells me its my fault................I think I should just not drive and stay at home.
