After Monday’s incident in the jail parking lot, I had the misfortune of being involved in yet another traffic incident, this time at a stop sign at the bottom of a steep hill. As I was sitting behind a pickup truck, I saw a car approaching from behind. I looked away from my mirror and turned my mind to other things. However, the driver must have eased up on the brakes after coming to a stop, and she gave me a nice solid tap on the bumper.
The funny thing about these things is they always sound worse than they are. I heard a loud “BANG,” sat for a moment in stunned incredulity, then got out to inspect the damage. Actually, there was hardly a scratch, so once again we parted ways. It was nice to be on the receiving end of an apology, unlike last time. 🙂
