Dear Idiot driver:

Thanks ever so much for not killing my husband today. I really sincerely appreciate that, as he is a huge part of my world and losing him would be one of the worst things that could ever happen to me.

But, yeah. You cutting him off so short that he had to slam on his brakes? In the middle of a rainstorm? Not nice.

Because even though you cut him off with absolutely no regard to his safety, he crashed. His car spun out and hit a concrete barrier, because of something you did. You kept right on driving, with absolutely zero regard for his safety. For his life. For my HUSBAND'S LIFE.

If I could find you, I would beat the $500 insurance deductible out of you. Because I'm just not feeling generous in regards to idiots today.

What if it was your spouse in the car?
Or your child?
Your grandchild?

Think people. Just stop and think.

And thank God for your family. Give them love tonight and thank God they are still around, despite the plethora of extreme idiots who are allowed to have drivers licenses.

Oh honey how scary! How's Jason feeling? Is he okay? Oh that bastard I'll hunt him down with you! I hate people. Just HATE them.

I'm so glad he's relatively okay, obviously given your calmness.

This is also why I am such an obsessive defensive driver and have HUGE fits when driving with people who aren't. You never know when some fucker like this will come in and screw things up. At least you can minimize the damage by being aware and having alternate escapes from these jackasses. Even if the alternate is a damn spin out and barrier. :-(

There is little that angers me more in this world than people who drive like maniacs.

I'm so glad Jason is alright!

dennis said...

Glad to hear no injuries!

if you find yours can you come here and help us track down a few idiot drivers up this way?

Bethany said...

Is he ok?

Are YOU ok?

Debbie said...

Jeez. I hope he's okay. How scary.

Amy W said...

How ironic that this would happen after your last post. I hope that he is okay...even small accidents can leave people sore all over. We need bumper stickers to put on our cars that say, "Please drive safely, I'd like to see my family tonight!"

I'm sorry this happened. I know how scary those phone calls can be.

Rachel said...

How scary for you and for Jason!! I'm soooo glad that he is ok. Unfortunately you can be a dumbass and still get a driver's license!

Britmum said...

I am so sorry to read about your husband. I hope that he is o.k..

I can not stand the driving in this country. It is appalling and they wonder why people are in accidents.

I will hunt the f'ing driver down with you to lovey.

Take care xx

Add me to the list of people hoping he's okay. Stupid, stupid people out there - I'd help track him down if I could.

Kellie said...

Holy crap....is he alright??!! How incredibly scary!! Want me to come search for the moron responsible? I'll smack him/her around good for ya AND get $500 for the deductible.

Whoa! I'm glad he's ok.

Angela Z said...

Glad he is ok and not seriously injured. Hope you are holding up. My prayers are with you......

Alpha Dude 1.5 said...

Uh...you never actually said if Jason is okay. I certainly hope he is well.

Our prayers go out for you all and that everyone is doing good.

Blessings to you and Jason and those awesome kids.

So sorry to hear about that that is so scary, I know I was shaking horribly after my spin out last week and I didn't even hit a wall

Brown Eyed Girl said...

Ya know this wouldn't be so damn ironic if you didn't talk about the maniac drivers all the time.

I hope you guys managed to get some sleep last night.

Gerbil said...

Oh man. Thank heavens he's ok. My heart about stopped when I read that.

That Chick Over There said...

He's okay. Thanks for asking everyone. The car is NOT okay, but it's fixable. If something had happened to him, I don't know that I would have been fixable. :)

frannie said...

oh, honey!!!

I am so sorry that you had to go through that. I am so glad that he is ok. the car can be replaced, but Jason can not! You must be so shaken up!

Stephanette said...

I'll send hubby with the keen detective skills if it'll help! I'm glad that you're both okay. Sorry I'm behind. Still recuperating from the twenty-seven people who came to our house. I'll say a prayer for you.

Hi. I am new to your blog. So come over and check it out. I am so grateful that your husband is all right. Some drivers are such idiots. They don't pay attention to what they are doing or how they are driving.
