Stupid and Sleepy Weekend

I slept in on Saturday. I was supposed to meet a friend for coffee late in the afternoon. I hurried out to get to the tailor to drop a pair of pants for hemming before heading to the coffee shop we were supposed to meet.

Since I was rushing, I was not paying attention to the sidewalk and my bumper got caught. As I tried pulling away, I managed to break the bumper. Yeah! I quickly called my friend and cancelled our get together. I really wanted to see her but, it wasn't meant to be.

I took pictures and called the Fleet Company (I am driving a company car) and they told me they need a police report. I thought the police would not come for such a minor issue but luckily they did in less than an hour. They gave me an alcohol test at 3 p.m. in the afternoon! (I guess some people can be drunk at that hour of the day). They quickly jotted down the report and told me to get it from a police station on Sunday.

30 minutes later a tow-truck came and took the car. It was a minor issue but, the broken part was going to rub on the tire so, I did not want to drive the car.

By the time they took the car away, it was too late for the Fleet Company to bring me a loaner. I had to go to the airport closer to me to pick it up. No big deal really.

Other than this, I cooked a couple of dishes for the week and spent every single moment dozing off in fron of the TV.

Today, the company driver went to get the report and the Fleet Company started the repairs already. It was such a stupid mistake on my part but, it is covered by insurance and this is the first such thing I did since early 90's. Better than a real accident thank God.


  1. Could have been so much worse and your driving record is good so I wouldn't lose much sleep over it. Guess you were meant to have a quiet weekend :)

  2. Ugh! I hate when things like that happen. Your good record will stand you in good stead. Some weekends are made for snoozing.
