Worst Car Week Ever

So, some of you may have read that I blew a tire on Monday.

WELL.

Today, while I was leaving my apartment complex to goto work.....

SOME ******* RAN INTO ME.

Now I have a huge dent and white paint on my black baby by the rear drivers side wheel.

*sobs*

Then, when I was driving home, a deer decided it would be fun to run out in front of my car. Luckily, no damage, but I swear, I was so pissed I almost ran into the deer just for ALMOST getting another dent from deer ass on my car.

My car is taking so much abuse. It's not fair.

WHYYYYY MEEEEE!

that sucks. that's almost happened to me as well (getting hit) because some people that are on the roads are just straight up a-holes. hope it doesn't cost too much to fix, and good luck on that

Maybe you need to take a day off and walk.
Hope you repairs go smoothly and just be glad you had good enough breaks to keep from hitting the deer. If you had been in a cavalier you probably would have hit it.

That smarts...

Reminds me of one of my weeks last year. I get up one morning and its cold as Hell (contradiction, eh?). I walk out to my Mustang (with a heater that doesn't work) and find I have flat tires. Not one, but two. That's cool, 'cause Mom works at the college and I can get a lift with her (thirty mile one-way commute). Guess what? She has a flat tire on her Explorer. Dad's F-150 is immediately ruled out because it uses four quarts of oil every twenty miles. And it has a slack tire. Needless to say, I stayed home (and repaired tires).

On another note: Soon after, I bought a Ranger pickup to back-up my aging pony car. Nice truck: showroom interior, automatic transmission, 12-disc CD/RW/MP3 changer w/Rock-Fos. thumps, covered and carpeted bed...you get the picture. The Mustang suddenly starts getting 12 m.p.g. (down from a usual of 28) and new rattles/shakes/leaks appear. That's cool...I can just use my new truck! On the way to the post office, the truck sends a pushrod through the engine block at 15 m.p.h. in 1st gear. Three days later (THANK GOD FOR MOTORCYCLES), I had a 2004 Focus ZX3 2.3L PZEV. The decision to purchase a new car came very easy, as it's a bad omen when your BACKUP vehicle breaks down, too.


Your sit'i'ation shall improve shortly! Just keep peeps away from your Focus (or Foci if such is the case). Beat them away with a stick if you have to!

Dude, I swear, i need to put police tape around my damn focus.

Liliana - the deer, since I missed it didn't count....

Tonight when I was driving home on 66, I 'flew' by a cop doing 75 in a 55. I saw him too late, and I immediately pull over. He walks up to my car, I hand him my license and registration and I was like "I knew you were going to pull me over."

And he asked how. So I told him about my week, and I said, "So it figures I get caught speeding tonight."

And he let me off with a written warning.

I'm thinking ALMOST hitting the deer, and ALMOST getting a ticket counts as one right?

And too whoever said I should walk.......... I read that a little too late!

I didn't hit a deer. It hit me. I was doing 70 on the highway at about 4:30 am and a deer runs into the side of my car. It's head broke my windshield while the rest of it bounced off my fender ripped my mirror off and made the entire side of my car look like a smashed pop can. I could barely get my door open. It makes me not mind paying full coverage insurance.
