GOOD: I babysat my niece for a couple hours and we had a nice time making projects.
GOOD: Later, as I was leaving the house, my brother-in-law (father of the niece) was out snow blowing our icy walks. How nice! (Rick has already requested a snow blower of his own for next year and in the meantime doesn't seem to enjoy using his cheap plastic shovel so the walks have been a mess).
BAD: I was on my way to Sandy as the snow was falling down and my mind got distracted by the license plate cover in front of me. It read, 'Peace out B*$#!*.' We were stopped at a red light and I wondered if the saying was intended to be crude, funny, mean, etc. Whatever the meaning behind the plate, I met the owner of the car and she was quite pleasant considering the circumstances...
VERY BAD: As the light turned green, I pushed in my clutch and the gas...before I knew what happened, my car bumped into the car in front of me and that car bumped into the car in front of her. Somehow, I caused a fender bender and I'm still baffled at how it happened.
GOOD: Everyone was safe. My car, Cedes, doesn't even have a scratch. The first car in line didn't appear to have any damage...
BAD: The car in the middle (the one I ran into) has severe damage on the front hood. I still can't figure out how my car ran into her that hard and she ran into the car in front of her with that much force.
GOOD: Everyone was very pleasant. No bad words were exchanged, not even dirty looks. The police officer arrived quickly and took care of the situation.
BAD: I got a traffic ticket for "Improper Lookout"
BAD: The car in the middle had to be towed away.
GOOD: Once again, everyone was okay.
GOOD: I arrived at my friend's house who just retired after thirty years of teaching. She had homemade chicken noodle soup and canned peaches waiting. We had a great time catching up.
BAD: Now I'm home talking to HeRoos and after analyzing the information, he thinks the car in the middle hit the front car first and I bumped the car in the middle. It all happened so fast and I still can't sort out the details.
GOOD: The collision didn't cause the airbag to inflate or the seatbelt to tighten so BabyRoos seems to be A-ok. He is still squirming around inside and seems to be oblivious to any fender bender.
