So car accidents are no fun. Especially when they give you whiplash, make you miss about a week of work and totally **** up your car.
So on monday about 4:00pm the girl and I were sitting at a red light minding our own buisness when BOOOM! some idiot chick in a white honda civic plows into the back of my beautiful hybrid. My poor car. So then we exchange information and all that crap and we drive away. I figure, hey there might be something wrong so lets drive to urgent care. Come to find out they don't deal with head injuries at urgent care, so they refer us to the ER. Wow, wouldn't it be nice if medical assistants could've bestowed that knowledge upon us before we'd waited a hour and a half.
So we get to the ER and the lines are like the DMV. Painful, long and pointless appearing. So wait another 2-3 hours. tick tock tick tock. LAME. So after we get inside triage, I get a set of x-rays and fortunatly everything turns out negatively (no breaks) and the girls tests come out fine as well. All in all it looks like we both have moderate to severe whiplash. I'm on Soma and she's on soma and ibuprofin (I can't take that because of my ulcer) so lots of fun all around.
So the Prius will be in the shop at least a month, if they don't total it. Major, major bummer. Not like I can buy another Gen I Prius. The whiplash is painful, but the other driver's insurance company called and apparently the other driver admitted full responsibility for the accident (she rear ended me, so duh) and they're covering all medical, car repair, pain and suffering, and a rental (ford focus ). What a pain in the ass. Missing work though isn't so bad, especially when the days off are paid by her insurance. But this whole damn situation is going to take so much time out of my life. Sigh... Well, almost time to pop another Soma.
