    Default First let me say, when that iPhone rings, it is LOUD

    I ws taking a nap this afternoon when the new phone next to my head rang. IT WAS NOT THE CALL I WANTED HEAR.....Geezerette totalled her Jetta. She was making a right-hand turn into a driveway and a person following her clipped her left rear. She ran straight into to a tree destroying the front end and setting off the airbags. She has what amounts to an ugly floor burn on her nose, a diagonal abrasion on her neck from the seat belt, A nasty abrasion on her right forearm, and a swelling on her shin and left foot. She will see the docs tomorrow (gotta go to the movie with her brother and friends tonight, of course).
    That effin Jetta has been a jinx. Geezer Jr; had and accident last fall in that car. Before we bought that car there hadn't been an accident in this family for 10 years...and neither kid had had one.

    Total loss is my guess with the air bags having been deployed.

    Glad she's ok.

    Just to CYA, was she using a turn signal?

    I know someone who has a cursed Jetta as well. Been in 5 accidents (none of which were his fault) and multiple issues with the car...

    I've had calls like that from both my daughters....it's a bad feeling. Mine were OK, and I'm glad yours is, too.

    Ditto on the 'get well.' young lady!

    Glad it wasn't worse, Geezer. One never likes to see a kid get hurt, especially your own kid. Heal up, Geezerette!

    Thanks all..yes, she was using a turn signal (although she questions wheter she gave them enough time). Funny thing, she's absolutely anal about turn signals and people not using them.

    The person who clipped her was a friend and following her. Geezerette has said she won't ride with the other girl because she drives to fast and follows people too closely. Sick thing is the other girl is supposed to leave on an overseas trip today. That could muddy insurance investigations. Oh and I heard the young lady tell the deputy at the scene (words no father ever wants to hear)..."For the record this was all my fault".

    For those that know the area, it was on Carrol Rd near Southeastway Park.

    sorry to hear about the incident Geez...
    was it your daughter or the friend that uttered those words to the deputy?

    it irritates me when other people are driving so closely/tailgaiting cause i just don't really trust the breaks can stop in a timely manner.
