asleep at mal 9/09

fuckity fuck fuck fuck

it's busy as hell here at work today; and i can barely focus on anything other than being tired and cranky and the accident zooom was in yesterday afternoon (he's ok according to the doctor at the er - nothing broken, but muscle/tissue damage to neck and left shoulder) - a lady speeding through the parking lot at his work plowed into his drivers side front quarter at about 40, setting off both his airbags and one of hers, but because he was turning and she was going straight (although at excessive rate of speed - speed is posted at 25 mph because all of the corners at the dealership are blind) it may still be his fault - a written police report was filed, there was a witness, and zooom was taken to the er in an ambulance - he arrived at 5:30, we didn't get out of there until almost 10, the er was ridiculously slow... anyway, i'm a bit stressed today and although i've only been here less than 2 hours i need cocktails now!!

car stuff

there is at least a decent possibility that they will total zooom's car if the damage is as bad as it appears to us - looks like frame damage, trashed hood, front quarter panel, and fender, maybe drivers door (or that may be repairable) - both air bags too... not sure how i feel about this - we may have to buy a brand new car now; not certain we can afford it... damn it why does shit like this always happen to us?
