We were like, oh, no, look at your car! Cary said, don't worry, that is what insurance is for. Her friend said, well the car only cost us $800, so I doubt if we will be getting it fixed. We said, oh, man, we are trading this car in tomorrow, the salesman and his wife are driving from Olympia to deliver it. So we exchanged info, and I'm sure that the little girl's parents were really excited to learn later on that she had hit a company car owned by a retired state cop. Really excited, I'm sure.
What was kind of funny was the look on the lady in the minivan next to us. She and her family walked up to the unfolding scene a couple of minutes after we did. Cary and I were trying to make the girl who hit us feel better by saying, oh, well, these things happen, don't worry, nobody got hurt, etc., etc. The lady kept staring at me with a really weird look. Later I wondered if she thought we backed into the blue car and tore the hole in it ourselves! We didn't, I swear, we were not even around when it happened. Honest.
So, anyway, we got the car all washed and cleaned on the way home from Bend. This morning we drove to Redmond and signed the papers for the new one. Now we don't even have to get a rental car while the old one is getting fixed.
Thank you Billy and Leanne for driving the new one down here for us!
what more could a girl want?
