There were times that called for the use of ancient and powerful words, the acknowledgment of humans in a crisis everywhere and everywhen since language was first invented. This was one of them. "Shit." Aurora said.

Because jesus fucking christ in a handbasket, this is getting ridiculous.

My car, my pride and joy - my first new car, my beautiful blue car - yeah, it's in the shop again.

Why?

Some handicapped jackass decided that sitting at a fucking stop sign was haaaard and decided to drive on instead of staying put while I turned. Passenger door is fucked up, passenger front wheel is... best left undescribed, since it required a cop, a husband, and two guys with a floor jack to get it off and get the spare on.

Oh, and did I mention that this one was a hit and run - the handicapped fucker didn't even slow down to see if I was ok? They stopped at the stop sign 20 feet away from the accident, though! And did I mention that the first person who bothered to stop was the cop, despite it being a fairly busy intersection?

GNRARRARARARARARARARARARARRRRGGGGGHHHH. :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

I mean, it's great that I'm fine and all, but I've now had more accidents in this one car than in both previous cars combined. There was the rear-ending sandwich. There was a plain old rear-ending. And now this. Oh, and two days after I bought the car, my father in law died and I had to put 2000 miles on it in the first two weeks I owned it.

I'm beginning to think this fucking car is cursed...

Your car has bad stuff. Sorry. How incredibly sucky.

I'm sure there's a local Catholic bookstore or one of your local Catholic churches where you can go get holy water. They'll charge you for a container, but that's like a dollar.

I know this because I got some to bless my car before a long road trip. :D

Brings to mind an interesting concept of allowing players to buy artifacts on the cheap if they accept that said artifact has points in bad stuff - like Frodo's ring. Invisibility with major bad stuff.

Maybe I'll ask my grandmother to get me a St. Christopher medal to hang from the mirror or something. Although that might give the wrong impression to passers-by...

As of this morning's estimate, I've got $2300+ worth of damage - and that's just the bodywork. I'm supremely glad we have a deductible; that may go higher when they check the suspension start trying to fix the alignment.

Maybe it's the color.
I've got a little blue Chevy Aveo, and it seems to have a randomly functioning cloaking device...

No wrecks yet, but some scares.

Or maybe your car just needs a good nickname.

My first car (in 1980) was a 1970 Plymouth Fury III. It was a tank of a car. My brother dubbed it "Hammer". Because if I hit anything in that car, it was gonna stay down.

The older brother of one of my best friends in high school had a 1976 Oldsmobile (in the 1990s) we dubbed "The Golden Turd" - for reasons up to and including its weird yellow color and the fact that it didn't start most mornings.

None of my cars have had a nickname that stuck, including this one. Alas.

Might I suggest Regan MacNeil, or even Linda Blair? :D
