Why I've been MIA for a couple of days

Yesterday at the Supermarket someone backed out of his parking space right into the side of my brand new GMC Sierra. They creamed the whole side of it. Luckily, no one was injured, but since I have only had very very old used cards with over 100,000 miles on them, it was very upsetting. My Sierra only had 5,000 miles when I got it a few months ago, and I was so careful with it. (Since I live on an island in Maine, most women here drive 4x4 trucks just so we can get around in the winter when it is slippery, and in the spring when the pot holes are so big you can't drive a regular car in some places on the island). Here, Sierras and Silverados are women's trucks! :-)

Anyway, it was really late when we finally got home last night and I was terribly upset. The guy left the scene of the accident. (Probably because he was on his cell phone when he backed out and didn't look to see that we were behind him). Luckily the police gave us his information, and his Insurance company sounds helpful. Our insurance company also has all the info and is ready to help if we have problems. Hopefully we will get satisfaction from his company though, since we have a big deductible.

The dealership where we bought the truck, Varneys in Bangor Maine, was also helpful, and got us in with the repair shop they use, so we will probably use them. We have an extended cab truck, and the back door is completely creamed, the front door has damage and the back side of the pickup bed is messed up. The other guy had a Jeep Wrangler with a big spare tire on the back, and his vehicle was undamaged.

Then we got home, and the phone lines are down here, so the insurance companies can't call us. (No cellhone towers here either). We do have intermittent internet, so I've been using that for as long as it lasts. I sure hope the phone lines come back soon, and we don't completely lose the internet.

Anyway, it could have been worse, since no one was hurt, and both he and we have good insurance companies. Things seem better today than they did last night!
