That was the phone call my father received today, from yours truly, at about 6pm. And I was literally two minutes from home. Some utter [email protected] came tearing up this country lane where I live, wasn't gonna stop, room for only one car so I tried my vest to get outta the way. And I did - no head-one, not even a touch - but in doing so hit the ditch on my side, then right across to the other side, over the bank, in a field. Car is not in good shape - I got out and walked away, bruises and soreness - shaken up a bit, though, and quite literally too. So I got lucky. But the worst part? The other guy didn't even stop - maybe he didn't see, but an accident like that, I was very lucky I wasn't seriously hurt, and he didn't even slow down. Oh, and now I can't even get to work because there are no buses for my late night shifts. My knees and shoulders hurt like hell, and my beloved car is not looking too good. Fully comp insurance will sort it out, but the main question I came to ask you guys is...can I get a courtesy car? I'm on my parents insurance, I borrow the car occasionally as I'm a named driver, and Underwoods will give us a courtesy car - but I've only passed my test a month ago, and I'm 17 - so something tells me I'm f!cked, no courtesy car for me. OK, rant over...for now!
