On my way to work today I had a little bit of a mishap. As you can see from the picture below, my car is not exactly in the same condition this evening as it was when I left the house this morning…
Ever since I bought this car I have been meaning to have the tires replaced. Just the slightest moisture on the road and they lost traction. Well, after much procrastination, I believe I will now go ahead and order those tires. What do you think?
Fortunately the guy I ran into was an American, too, so there were no language issues. He was driving something a little sturdier (a Ford Explorer) and it pretty much didn’t get anything more than a scratch. Still, he wanted to call the Polizei just in case. We waited there for about 30 minutes for them to show up. When they finally did, they asked both of us if we were injured; when we said no, they asked if they even wanted us to file a report since there really wasn’t anything else for them to do. Fortunately no report was filed. I told the guy to have his truck checked out at one of the local body shops just to make sure there wasn’t anything wrong, but I really don’t think there will be. After all, we really weren’t going that fast.
Unfortunately for me, my car needs a little bit of work (as you can see above). Oh well, it’s just a car and life goes on.
