Hello friends & HAPPY FRIDAY!!
The battle between pollen and I continues! I have been exhausted and crazed looking, so there is that! Look out boys *wiggly eyebrows*
Let’s see, what is going on in my life…
OH! So my
lovely neighbor decided to backup into my car over a little over a week ago?? How I forgot to mention this, I will never know as I have been seething for a solid week. It has been a nightmare to say the least. They tried to play it off, which really upsets me. You see, I have cameras around my house after a not so kind breakup with Fuckboy* over a year ago, who decided to come to the house unannounced while I was at work…so that was not going to fly and I bought some same day along with new locks – take that you slimy fuck.
Anyway back to the car, so I have only had my car since December. I totaled my previous one before Christmas…I know. A lot of bad luck with me. My little civic was not new by any means, I did not want a payment again but she was in good shape! I cherished her and we were unstoppable at like 35 miles to a gallon! Coming from about 18-20, no really. We were unstoppable, I could take on the world with my sunroof open and dogs out the window!! So when I woke up on the 9th to this ugly new accessory that I did not approve in my driver’s side door – that also provided horrendous noise upon opening said door – I saw red. Mini hulk rage ensued or pint size fury as other describe this mode of mine.
I park out on the street in front of my house frequently because of Ana (blind pupper). She has run into my car numerous times and how she still functions, I will never know. So to protect her, I just park out of her paths.
Good Samaritan me, rescuing blind dogs without an eye & heart of gold….this asshole was not going to get away with this. No note on the car OR door… WHO DOES THAT!? I balled my little fist and raised it to the sky, shaking it while grumbling “NOT TODAY! I WILL GET YOU! TO THE CAMERA FOOTAGE!”
So that is what I did. Coffee and brownie breakfast while mulling over grainy footage, I will catch you SOB. I was just missing my Sherlock hat, which I am sad that I do not have one.
I looked back to witness this monster backing up into my car at 2AM, stopping like they knew it and then drove away. Oh, no they did not and at that hour!? I bet they were DRUNK! So, I had my evidence and now… what to do with it. I wanted to go to their door in a crazed woman fashion, but I did not. I controlled myself. May I say, I have excellent anger control? It does not take much to get me furious, but this did. The injustice, the shitty human element and I have had enough shit happen to me over the past year, I will RALLY! Perhaps I snapped, minorly.
So I decided, I will wait. They for sure would call or text me, they have my number, their little boy mows my grass for me since I cannot breathe to do it myself. Or hell, even just come over!? That is what I would do, well…. I would have left a note first but hey.
They never showed. No text. Nothing. Fine. It’s now been several hours and by several hours, I mean a leisurely 6, if they won’t make the first move, I will. First, I will need a damage report regardless so I call the local police department. I am sure, they have better things to do on a Sunday, but honestly I needed them and with the grain on said footage, I was not sure if these sketchy fucks would even get the hammer of justice like I planned. So a nice young fella came out to do the report, hear my rant and viewed my footage. It seemed like this would be enough. YES.
Mr. Awesome Officer said once I finished writing my report, he would go speak to them. He also said, if photos or video is involved, they usually confess right away. So I watched this unfold from my little stoop area and doggos barking in the back ground, I assume they were cheering on Mr. Awesome Officer, like BARK “GET THEM” BARK! Clearly that is what it was… not that he was a stranger in their line of sight….ahem.
The good news? The dog barks of encouragement and my crappy footage did the trick. They confessed right away….or well their mom ratted them out right away. “Oh, my daughter did say that she thought she hit the car but it was so dark! She could not tell and you know, she did not want to wake her since it was so late.”
Mr. Awesome Officer started back to my home from across the street, giving me the thumbs up. Whaaattt!? I love thumbs up, I am sure most do not even do that but if I had gold stickers, I would have given him one! He pulled through, I did not have to pay a thing! YESSSSS! I love karma :).
Shady! Tried to get away with denting my little car? NO. The damage even worsened after a few open/closes of said door. Infuriating. So I have been without my civic since Tuesday and driving this rental that I cannot see out of – god help me. I am 5’2” on a good day and a lot of cars, just do not fit my odd stature haha.
So with that said, I did just get a text from the autobody shop, they are “close to completion” whatever that really means, I will never know. I am hoping to have my older little civic today! For my sanity and honestly, the safety of others around me while driving that blind spot box! I can feel the rage slowly leaving my body with this news 🙏🏻. Soon.
Other than that, everything has kind of been business as usual. It has been a quick work week thank goodness and quiet before the intern hire storm – I will take it!
Oh and speaking of business, my friend S has stated that I should have my own :). Which is very encouraging and terrifying. I am thinking I will do it, I can use the extra income since the loss of one in the home and she believes in me. SO! That will be on the horizon for me soon too. It is direct sales but I am an anxiety riddled nut job, so gathering my info and believing in me and the product will help. I will share more on it later! A secret, it’s for my fellow allergy people! Not another bag, or goodness make up, this is something good for the environment and health! So stay tuned on that! Also, don’t worry, it will not become focus on this blog either, I just wanted to share this scary adventure for anxious, shy me and how big of a step it will be and how I need to overcome these obstacles to build a better life for me.
I hope you all enjoyed my rant on shitty neighbors and have a great day! I will be posting again soon!
*Sorry for the vulgarity, it just takes over when I am passionate about a story 😀
