What a great 23 hours...
I spent 10 of the last 23 hours sitting in big lecture halls, listening to long, long CE lectures.

Then a Coca-Cola truck re-arranged the rear-end of my car.

Look, there's fun for everyone here.

Ah, damn! That really sucks! *misses her smooshed Honda* You're okay though, right?

I'm fine. Wish my car was as good as me!

That is awful! I hope you are OK.

No worries, I'm doing just great.

Holy shit. I hope you weren't in it.

No, I wasn't in it. I came out of a long meeting to find that a newbie Coke driver had just missed making the corner (by quite a bit actually), and hit the back of my car.

And the supervisor says that "the tire just rubbed the back of my car", because "there is no paint damage on the truck". Now... there is red & white paint streaks on what's left of my bumper, pieces of it missing, a buckled back quarterpanel, and the front end got pushed into a pole from the force. Yeah, that sounds like a "little rub from a tire".

Something tells me they are going to try to say they are only minorly at fault... but it was just sitting there! And while it was sticking out of the parking space, I had parked where the parking attendant told me to, and pulled as far forward as I could (hence being pushed forward into the pole). So if Coke finds they aren't at fault, then the Radisson hotel is for telling me to park in a bad place.

SOMEONE is going to pay to fix my car!

I'm fine. It's the car that's hurt.

I'm so sorry. You weren't hurt in the accident were you? To make up for some of the crappy, I'm about to post the link you wanted. I hope things get better soon, and the rest of the weekend is more fun!

I wasn't hurt... but it might have been easier if I was, because I'm worried about Coke not paying for the car repair. The supervisor seemed to be pooh-poohing it as pretty minor, but there are parts smooshed and missing/torn from my car!

DLing the link right now. I'll try to get another back up later tonight, if needed. Let me know!

Argh. I'm glad you're okay, though.

Yikes! I'm assuming everyone that was in the car is okay. And are you totally suing Coca-Cola? Cos you should.
