The Love Bug Is Injured!


Do you see the lovely, beautiful, gorgeous, lady above???
She's the most beautiful car I've ever seen, and she's all mine!!!  :)
For the newcomers, this is TheLoveBug.
Usually my stories about TheLoveBug are happy and upbeat.
Unfortunately, this post is a very sad one.
Sniffle.  Sniffle.

It all started Friday evening.
I left work to sit in bumper to bumper traffic on the LIE.
For those familiar with that God forsaken road, this wasn't typical LIE traffic.
By traffic I mean that I sat in the same spot for over an hour and ten minutes.

As I'm on the phone with Madre complaining about my horrible predicament, I'm suddenly startled by a loud BOOM and a sudden collision into the car in front of me.
It became overwhelmingly obvious that I got rear ended and sent flying into the car in front.
The poor, poor Love Bug.  She practically wailed out in pain!

Being already incredibly irritated from being stuck in the same damn spot for so long, I got out of the car ready to attack.  I looked at the back bumper and was relieved to see minimal chipped paint and no dents.  That's when the lady who hit me came out of the car.
Brace yourself folks.  This is the part that put me over the edge!

Jax:  "There's not that much damage."
Lady:  "Oh.  There's no white paint on your car."
Jax:  "Yea, I don't see any."
Lady:  "You must have reversed into me."
?!?!?!?!?!?!
Jax:  "I have been stuck in the same GOD DAMN spot for WELL OVER an hour.  Why the HELL would I EVER want to go backwards, woman?"

Lady:  "Hang on a second."

That's when Lady nonchalantly hopped back into her massive vehicle.
Oh, she's getting her paperwork to exchange information.
That's when Lady turned on her car and started heading for the shoulder.
Oh, she's pulling over.  I mean, we are in the middle of a lane.
That's when Lady continued to drive all the way down the shoulder until she was no longer in view.
Oh, she's driving away.  Yup, that *#$% is driving away.

Before I get angry and start having a hissy again, I'm going to get to the point of this post.
The point is, TheLoveBug is injured and that makes me sad.
Here's to TheLoveBug having a rapid recovery!!

Have you ever had an awful car incident?

  1. That lady was a psychopath, and a love bug attempted murderer. I hope you got her license plate number. The exact same thing happened to me, only there was a lot of damage, but the guy who rear ended me admitted he was in the wrong at least. When I was just a little baby boy, my favorite Saturday morning show was about this crappy old volkswagon that had a horn on the side of it, and you honked the horn on the side of it and it turned into a super car. It wasn't Herby, the love bug... I can't remember what it was called, and haven't been able to find anything about it on the internet despite my efforts. I guess it was only a popular show with me!

    1. Psycopath is an understatement. Oh she got me SO mad!! I was FUMING. Reversed into her? As if...

      I never heard of that show either, but now I want to watch it!!!

  2. Let's hope the poor lovebug gets better soon. At least she still has her lashes and can look pretty haha.

    That woman will get hers one day I am sure. Maybe she'll end up in redneck country and they'll shoot out her tires as she tries to run off...haha

    You complaining? Now I can't picture that...hahaha

    1. Oh, it's called Karma and I have no doubt that she will get hers. Besides, I have the all mighty maloika on my side ;) hahahaha

      and she does look pretty with her lashing batting at the camera, don't she? :) :) :)

      I NEVER complain :( lol

      Delete
    2. Wow with all the bad karma she is getting, this lady is doomed..hahaha

      Oh yes she looks like quite the camera savvy lovebug.

      Never complain only rationalize, huh?..haha

      Delete
    3. LOL That's right she's DOOMED!! It's serves her right!! hahahaha

      She is camera savvy ;) She's model material!!

  4. Sorry about your car Jax, I am very particular about my truck. As far as the lady goes.....you are in NYC remember?

    Hey, we are taking our teenage daughters to NYC in June and staying in the Hilton Times Square... They are both actresses with the local town theater and we will see one, or maybe two Broadway shows (They may see two - one is enough for me).

    I got three questions for you.
    1. Is the Hilton Time Square a good choice?
    2. I want a real non-touristy inexpensive NYC Italian dinner in the location near where we are staying - any suggestions?
    3. If they go to the second play, I want to go to a good Irish bar...you know, long narrow, dark, any suggestions?

    Thanks.


    Thanks.

    Replies
    1. Oh, how fun!! Enjoy :) What play did you plan on seeing? Do I lose points if I suggest Mary Poppins?? lol

      1. Anything in Time Square is a GREAT choice. Amazing hotels, but very expensive. Then again you are paying for the location.

      2. I'm Italian, so I VERY rarely go out for Italian food. I have to admit that Carmines is delicious!!! It's a little touristy, but so yummy.

      3. I have no idea about Irish bars. Sorry...

  5. Oh my word. What a horrid woman. But you had witnesses, right? You called 911 and reported it? You need to finish the story! ha.

    get better love bug!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes, she IS a horrid woman. Yes, I had a witness. The man that I rear ended. And, no, I did not call 911 and report it. I just wanted to go home. LOL

  6. I got hit so bad from behind that all the window's in the truck broke, snot flew out my nose and all over me and I thought it was blood at first, I didn't know where I was, I was covered in glass, got out of the truck, stumbled over to the side walk and fell down and people were all over me. The woman that hit me, she and her car were IN the bed of my truck with her bumper almost at the back window.

    1. Omg, that sounds like an awful accident!! Glad that worst things didn't end up totaled other than your cars.

  7. does she really have eyelashes? :)
    I love Bugs and small cars, my fave being Ford Ka, but I think you don't have those over there, such a pretty pretty little cutie car

    1. Of course she really has lashes!! Aren't they adorable? :)

      Ohh, I have to look that one up. Sounds very cute!

      Delete
  8. OMG did she really say you must have went in reverse. I would have took a picture of her license plates and drove to the police station. Who does that. She hits you and then leave. Screw that. There's something seriously wrong with that lady.

    1. I almost died when she said that I must have reversed into her. I'm not one to hit, but I really wanted to slap her!!!!

  11. WTF!?! OMFG. I was in an accident very similar to that although basically the lady hit the car behind me and that car hit me. But no one left because that's the RESPONSIBLE thing to do. What a BITCH.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Girl, people don't know responsible anymore. The best is, she got out, acknowledged the accident, and THEN drove away. That takes serious BALLS. Sigh. I agree with the bitch part. Errrr

  12. Dez and I will hunt down this woman like the dog she is for you Jax. She must pay for her crimes against the Love Bug and for her insolence at driving away. I bet she was wearing really ugly shoes too.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Oh Anne, I knew that I could count on you and Dez to make sure the revenge was properly executed. For the love bug!!!

      P.S. Her shoes were probably so hideous she had to run away! Hmph!

      Delete
  13. omg, what an idiot!! that is INFURIATING. Did you get any information about her or catch her license??? Ugh, how annoying.

    Also, I feel you on the traffic. Last Friday when I drove to Seattle after work it took me TWO hours just to get into WA... and Portland is right by the border so for context, without traffic it would take 15 minutes, if that. UGH!

    Also, I'm sorry the Lovebug is hurt!!! I was on a walk last week and saw those lashes on a Jetta and thought of you!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. IDIOT and INFURIATING is right!!!! I didn't not get any information. I was in complete and utter shock. Never experienced anyone that CLASSY before. :(

      Oh my, that is a lot of traffic!! I hate it!!!!!

      Aww really? Aren't they adorable!! I told you that the trend was going to take over :) When are you joining the lash club?

  15. I am with that lady, if your car didnt have white paint, it means that it is your fault and you reversed into her car.
    Just reverse her too into her car. And say, there is no white paint on you, you should have chased and fell on my car, demand a check from her for jumping into your car.
    Douche bags. Did you break her or her car's headlight or two?

    1. I should have broke a head light. What's fair is fair, right? Errrr, thinking about that lady still has me PISSED!!!!!!

  16. OH MY GOD!! I would be LIVID!! i can NOT believe it... but i can cos we live on the side of the east coast where the most assholes like this live! you poor thing and your poor adorable car!! now you know! next time this happens walk out of the car and get the license plate!! lol thats the moral of this story to me! i aint letting NO bitch do that shit to me. but i hope the love bug is okay! and you don't have to suffer to long without her!

    1. I was LIVID!!! I can't even describe to you how unbelievably pissed off I was. I was screaming at no one. lol

      East coast has the WORST drivers. Word is NY and NJ are always competing for the worst drviers in the world. Lucky us!!!

      Yes, next time I will snap a pic of the liscense plate before they could run.

      Delete
  17. Well, we all know I would've probably landed in jail for knocking that lady out in the middle of the highway. I would try to pretend she had obtained the injury in the accident, but then the cops would look at the car and know that the tiny dent in my bumper, didn't give her a black eye and a bloody nose.

    Okay, that's what I would've done at your age. Now I would've just written down her license and laughed at her trying to say I reversed in to her. She probably doesn't have insurance.

    ReplyDelete

    1. LOL I wanted to punch her, but I was in shock. Ever be in shock? I haven't...until then.

      Something was up that she ran away like that. So weird!

  18. What a complete psycho bitch from hell. Don't worry 'cause karma will take care of that woman. You don't need to do a thing but sit back and enjoy your beautiful life. Can I just say how much I adore your love bug? How precious!!!!!

    1. Psycho bitch from hell sounds so completely right!! Girl, I knew you would see things my way ;) I'm sending the maloika after her karma cursed ass. LOL

      Thank you!! The love bug is precious :)

  19. I can bet you she didn't have insurance. My girlfriend was driving in a car with her friend, and her friend took a bad left turn at a light. The other car hit her (which would of been her fault) but drove off because they had no insurance. People these days...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Oh wow...why do people drive off?! Get insurance dammit!! It's the law!! That way when you crash into me, you don't need to run away. lol

  20. oh my gosh! i can't believe someone would actually do that! although my sister got rear ended a few years ago and the woman tried to tell her that she didn't hit her, that she hit the curb. um, okay?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. She hit the curb? Why can't people just apologize and be done with it? It's ridiculous. Don't blame ME for YOUR stupidity. ug. Sooooo irked.

  21. What a bitch. :| That's why I want a camera installed on my future car so I can record these incidents and then file the proper paperwork even if the other person pulls shit like this.

    1. Yes, she IS a bitch. You must've reversed into me. Psh!!!! A camera sounds GREAT!!!

  22. No She Didn't!!! I HATE the LIE almost as much as the Belt. My first favorite car was totaled on the SOB, then it was stripped because we had to leave it on a side street overnight because that's where to tow trucks took it. Jerks.

    Sorry about your Love Bug =(

    1. Ug, don't talk to me about the Belt Pkwy. hahahahaha

      Oh, I have some great car stories too. I'm surrounded by idiots here. LOL

      It's ok, TheLoveBug will feel better eventually. :)

    2. Does it help to know that someone hit my car in the parking lot at Walmart, dented it - it's very first dent, scraped up the whole side and then just left. No note or anything? Bastards. I say we throw them all into the Atlantic! I was able to get the scrape marks off, pretty much, but the dent remains and it makes me mad every time I see it LOL

  23. Whaaaaaat? I should have been with you... I would have chased that lady down and gotten her license plate number. Let's see how she likes being charged with a hit and run...

  24. Wow what a bitch.

    I must tell you that being stuck in completely unmoving traffic is something that pisses me off more than anything in the world. Being slightly claustrophobic, I woulda flipped out on that lady.

    Does your car seriously have fake eyelashes?

  39. Sorry Jax; some folks are so selfish.

    My collisions have been uneventful, but the Mrs. had a couple when I was in uniform where people tried to pull fast ones. She was glad to have me (a goofy police) as an "advisor" so that I ensured that it was handled correctly. In one of those crashes, the attorney at fault figured the best option was to just settle and not go to court.
