I am so ticked...

YES...ticked! I got swiped today in traffic and the swiper never even hit his brakes! Oh, and I was actually coming from a doctor's appointment because I have bronchitis and going to my drugstore to pick up RXs - yes...this was a fun afternoon.
I don't know if I mentioned it or not, but I bought a new car a about 3 weeks ago. It is a cute little black Pontiac Vibe (which is the same car as the Toyota Matrix - made on the same production line and all - but a bit less expensive and has some cushier appointments which made me just liked it better). What drove this decision is my absolute irritation at gas prices these days and my total non-love relationship with the MOM van. If you have been a Southern Somedays reader for very long you may remember that I have a complete complex about the MOM van because, quite honestly, it made me feel [look] fat. I sold my Volvo a few weeks ago (at 225000+ miles on it) to my neighbor and I just wanted something that gets really good MPG and is fun to buzz around town after researching I chose a Vibe.
ANYWAY...some guy (idiot) in a BOHV (big, ole, honkin', vehicle) was turning left out of a parking lot in an imposible to turn left place at 5:00 in the afternoon and whipped out to cross 3 lanes of traffic and hit me in the turning lane. He took off like he assaulted ladies in little cars all the time and was proud of it. You know that was just plain bad manners...his mother must be so proud...oh, I swan.

I did march into the CVS (I don't use CVS - I was going to my little local pharmacy that has the super cute gift section....but I digress) from which he was trying to turn left out of and asked if they had cameras that covered that side of their parking lot (thinking I could get his tag # or something) but don't.
AND, I got a really annoying paper cut when I was opening the mail when I got home!
Oh, I know it isn't very Christian of me but I have harbored evil thoughts about him finding a nail or two this week because his tires are real expensive on that BOHV!


  1. I am so sorry. Wow you have had one of those days. I hope you were not hurt. With your day I say no cooking and have hubby bring home dinner. I hope your day is better tomorrow. Feel better.

  2. Bless your heart...what a day you have had. Hopefully with the new meds, your bronchitis will get better soon.

    Did the mean old swiper cause much damage?

    Somebody needs to teach that boy a lesson...apparently he did not have a proper upbringing!

    Love, Belle

  3. I am so sorry that this happened to you! I am glad that you are ok!

  4. Oh noooooo! That's awful. Here's a big (((((HUG))))) to help you feel better. My car goes in the body shop Monday because someone hit me in the parking lot after a soccer game and didn't wait to apologize. People, honestly!

    And thanks for articulating why I don't drive a minivan, either. I couldn't quite put my finger on it, but you nailed it--makes me look fat! I'm very happy with my 2007 Toyota RAV-4. Hope tomorrow is a better day!

  5. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Yours is great...I'll definitely be checking in regularly. That guy was a jerk and a half...he'll get his, don't you of these days, he surely will.

  6. Well, Bless Your Hear, Bellah. The main thing is to get over that broncittis(I don't know how to spell it) That was not a real man...a real man would have stopped!!! The good news is, your car is fixable. Just take care of Bellah!!! Blessings to you!!! Nancy

  7. I hate this happened and that you have bronchitis. Hugs and prayers for a speedy recovery.

    I love your new vehicle!


  8. Im so sorry and hope you feel better. I have started running fever now. More meds coming. Im sorry about your car..I do love it though.

  9. oh, I'm ticked for you!!! what nerve!! I'm glad your ok though!

  10. What a jerk! I hope that he didn't do much damage to your car.

  11. That is so crummy. Hope you've had some better days since then.

    The car is really cute.

    Take care,

  12. Oh no!!! Isn't that always how it happens??? I got rear ended a month after I bought my new car in the grocery store parking lot. So sorry!! Hope you're feeling better.

  13. That is just plane awful! I am so sorry!

  14. Oh no!! I'm so sorry- that totally stinks!

  15. Oh! You are just so precious!
    Bless your heart -- but you did have a bad day!
    I hope that you're feeling better now -- feeling well and happy!
