Hit and Run

Last night the boys asked me to take down their bunk beds. So, with that, comes rearranging their entire rooms so all of their shit stuff fits properly. I was in the middle of putting their Wii games back onto a shelf when I heard a muffled BANG.

I thought one of the kids was getting into something, yet again dropped something on the hardwood floor downstairs. I went back to picking video game boxes off of W.'s bed when, out of the corner of my eye, I saw movement on the street below.

At first I wasn't sure what I was looking at. A man, probably in his late fifties to early sixties, was parked VERY close to my husband's truck. The man, grayed and wearing glasses, quickly emerged from his silver minivan and inspected our Honda.

"MOTHER F'ER!!" I shouted as I watched him look around from left to right and then over both shoulders.

"He's going to bolt!!" I thought, as I realized what was transpiring right before my eyes. I began banging on the window to get his attention. I wanted him to know that I was witness to his actions.

He didn't hear me and he jumped into his car.


I ran down the stairs and out the front door. My neighbor from across the street was already on foot and was sprinting down the middle of the road yelling for the man to stop.

Too late. He was gone.

I looked at the side of the truck. It was scratched and dented down the driver's side. It had been hit with enough force to push the back end into the curb.

I was LIVID!! Bastard was probably drunk. I was thankful my children weren't playing outside. Upon thinking this, I became even more enraged.

So listen here MR., I know I've seen you before. I know you either live in town or are close by. I know what you look like, what type of car you drive and it's color. I also know that your license plate begins MS. You must have damage on the driver's side of your minivan, just so you know, we've contacted all of the local auto body shops. They too will be looking for you.

We WILL find you. You had just better hope my husband sees you first.

On 6/6/06 (what a day) I was hit and run. I had my 3.5 month old daughter in the car. While I went to check on her screaming, the guy who had rear-ended me took off. Nobody was hurt, thank goodness and the damage was minimal. The thing that really pissed me off, though, was trying to flag down a cop who was passing by while I was trying to find the guy. Didn't even look in my direction. I couldn't honk because I was so upset I couldn't find the little buttons. Airbags in the steering wheel sure do cause a lot of inconvenience when you're in a panic.
Glad the kids were safe inside, though.
