Last night I had my first coffee group meeting with the wives of the 1st Engineer Battalion. It was great! I met lots of nice people and got excited about getting involved with the group. Sadly, my enjoyable evening quickly took a turn for the worst when I walked out to my car. As I approached I noticed something on the ground near my driver's side wheel. I thought to myself, "Oh gosh, I hope I was allowed to park where I'm parked. I hope they didn't lock my wheel up!" When I reached my car, I saw that the "thing" on the ground was my mirror and my whole car had been side swiped. I immediately went to my windshield hoping that whoever did this had left their information. However, I wasn't all that surprised when I only found the information to contact the police department instead. Frustrated and flustered, I called the police, filed a claim with USAA, and tried to maintain my composure.
I am so thankful that I wasn't in the car when the person drove past my car. I know it could have been a lot worse. But right now I am angry. I am angry because this person will probably get away with their crime. I am angry because we have minimal coverage on my car (because it's older) therefore we won't be receiving any money for the repair costs. I am angry because the damages will cost more to fix than the car is worth and we can't really afford to replace my car. I am angry because I've only been living in Kansas for 3 weeks and something like this has already happened.
I can't understand how things like this happen. The person sideswiped me in broad daylight and ran away. What a jerk...
I'm gonna keep praying the police find the person.
