there's this one roundabout (we call them rotaries) that i always almost crash into if i'm driving back from this one neighborhood where i have a few friends and it's dark. it's just invisible when it's dark, and there's no other cars on it at night. i've always seen trees coming at me and veered right in the nick of time.

I've had my license for almost six months. One month into it I hit a car pulling out of a parking lot exit. My car sustained little damage, just a hole in the bumper, but the other one had a large imprint of my car in its side.

i know. we try to avoid letting them drive, but only one of the kids lives near them. the ridiculous thing is, they have tons of money, years of working after their kids left the nest plus he's great at investing. more than enough money to hire a driver, even a local kid a few afternoons a week, to avoid DEATH and not chip into the inheritance. mostly it's him driving to the metro station and back for my grandmother to go to work in the city (she's like 84 and still works) but still he's none too swift.

when i visit, he always wants to pick me up at union station downtown, and i always refuse to tell him exactly when my train gets in and just meet him at the local metro station.

the female version of you pulled out of a parking lot into my mother's car a few weeks ago! my mom swerved and sped up so it hit the back seat and not where my sister was sitting, and she said she couldn't even get mad cause the girl was like 17 and started crying and shaking.

The lady I hit didn't have a kid in the car, though there was an empty baby seat. Yeah, that's still not fun to think about.
