My Monday started off pretty well – I had taken care of a whole lot of admin, I was running pretty much on time, and I had a coffee date with an old friend scheduled…
And then on my way back from dropping Kenzo back at SA Guide-Dogs Association for the Blind this morning, a dude in a white Kia – who was profusely apologetic and very embarrassed – was looking at himself in his rearview mirror and drifted into my lane!
I didn’t even have time to think. I saw the Kia heading for me, narrowly missing the one in front of me – and I started to move to the left but I didn’t really have anywhere to go with a steep grass verge and no emergency lane.
As I started to brace myself for an impact, he swerved and our side mirrors were all that touched.
He turned around to return to where I had pulled over, and got out with his drivers license in his hand.
We each have desctroyed side mirrors, and some damage to the window and the door where the mirror slammed back onto the car, so we’re both okay thank goodness.
And he’s licensed and insured, as I am, so the insurance will take care of the rest whilst we get panelbeater quotes.
It took me about an hour to stop shaking!
