So. That's exactly what I did.
I should have known better.
You see, because of that wonderful storm, the roads were a bit slick. And because I skipped my first class, I obviously left my house a bit later to make it on time for my test. And because God MUST have a sense of humor, I was promptly rear-ended while at a yield sign waiting to merge into the "high volume" traffic of Tyler.
Here's the good side of things. (Believe me, I had to talk myself down on the way to take my test... yep. I still took it. That's how dedicated to the field of statistics I am...)
1. My car was drivable. No tow trucks needed.
2. The guy that hit me was very nice and seemed to know it was ABSOLUTELY, WITH OUT A SHADOW OF A DOUBT his fault.
3. I hit my head. Big welts apparently equal 500 dollars from the insurance company. Who knew? Apparently they don't want me to sue them or something...
4. I get a rental for a couple of days while my car is being repaired. And hey, let's be honest here, with the state my car is in, cruising around in a rental is going to feel like a dream... a pure, Kia, dream...
So, let this be a lesson.
Don't skip class. (Unless, of course, you have a personal driver, then feel free to skip class all you want...)
