I was stopped at a light this afternoon when a woman hit my bumper. (Not hard to damage the car or me, happily.) I pulled over and SHE JUST KEPT GOING. My reaction, I realize, was far out of proportion to the (virtually non-existent) damage and may be directly related to the fact that this is the SECOND time I've been hit by drivers who ran and the THIRD time I've been hit by careless drivers in the past couple of years.
I drove directly to the police station two blocks away. Sadly, they did not put out an APB for this menace to society. They told me to fill out an online report. Really, it was more trouble than it was worth...but I did it anyway. If she'd stopped, I would have shrugged it off. Her car was WAY nicer than mine, anyway. Since she didn't, I'm just about ready to hire a hit man.
I am well aware of the irony. My teen driver has been terrorizing drivers, pedestrians, and her parents for weeks now. And I'm the one who gets hit. Again!
So maddening. I think I'll just stay home and work on my story....
