to top off my already stressful weekend?

i get HIT BY A FUCKING CAR on my walk to work.

yes, yes, i'm okay, though i may be a bit stiff when i wake up tomorrow.

there's this crosswalk that i've always HATED on my walk to work. there's a stop sign and a cross walk, but people will almost NEVER stop, and rarely even look. i peeked around the tree (it's also a blind spot 3 seasons out of the year when there's leaves on the trees), saw a car quite a ways down, and begun to cross. she has ample time to see me, slow down, and come to a stop.

or so i thought.

i noticed she was hardly slowing, and instinctively moved my left knee away as the car struck my arm and spun me around. i stood there dumbfounded that she may have not seen me, that she had actually not stopped, because i SAW her looking at me. at least, i think i saw her head looking towards me. after it hit a certain point, i was staring in horror at her bumper, which missed my left kneecap by mere inches. what topped this off nicely was that the bitch fucking WAVED and drove off. not an "oops!" wave, but actually a toodle fucking loo wave, where her fingers waggled at the end of her upraised hand. i gathered breath to yell at her, but looked behind me again, as i realized i was standing in the middle of the street at this time. a couple in a beat up red car gave me a funny look, and i'm not sure if it was because they were concerned with if i was alright, or if they were annoyed that i was standing in their way. either way, they said nothing, so i turned around and left.

no, i didn't file a police report. i was too dumbfounded to notice anything other than that she had shorter curly hair and drove a light blue newer model car.

i'm trying to console myself with the fact that the whore has one HELLUVA bucket load of freaking kharma that will be knocking on her door for this.

so, combined with already being beyond stressed for the last few weekends, i started sobbing as i walked up the street. i snuffled as the people in the cars at the stoplight gave me a funny look as they waited for the light to turn green and i waited to cross. i called work, trying to remain calm, but just blurted out "I'M HAVING A SHITTY DAY, I'M GOING TO BE LATE FOR WORK *SOB* BECAUSE I *GULP* JUST GOT HIT BY A FREAKING CAR!!! *SIMPER*" because of how badly i'm freaking out, the manager instantly thinks i'm sprawled by the side of the road and half dead and tells me to stay where i'm at, he'll send someone to get me, so that we can file a police report and get the bitch. i tell him i would rather walk - i suppose a woman crying on the side of Andresen and walking is much better than a woman standing outside of a Shell station, sobbing. i need to get a hold of myself. i'm fine, until i walk into work and a coworker rushes up and says "omg, show me your arm!" i instantly start crying again and stick out my left arm, which she tenderly flips back and forth. "i don't see any swelling..." i'm certain at this point that i'm crying more for everything that's been building up this weekend, not just because of jerks driving new blue cars. unfortunately, i'm crying too hard to get out that there shouldn't be swelling, if i hurt anything, it will be my shoulder and elbow because of the speed that they were wrenched behind me.

at least work can never complain that i'm not a dedicated worker. Gets hit by a car and STILL comes to work!!! i also got three sodas and a giant candy bar out of the deal, as well as several hugs.

i'm freaking emotionally drained and going to bed now.

yup. and i can't remember if i mentioned later on that she might live in my apartment complex. or used to, i don't see the car anymore.

Wow Aubrey, glad you're OK after that.

I've always found that work is a great distraction from things like you're last few days, it gives me time to let things sink in without overwhelming me. Then again there's a lot to be said for a break from the routine and doing something out of the ordinary to change the pace of things.
Nov. 10th, 2006 03:12 am (UTC)
i totally agree - when i'm feeling absolutely horrid emotionally, i'm usually great by the end of the night - it's just the matter of getting me there.
Apr. 23rd, 2006 06:42 am (UTC)
O!M!G! You poor baby! How fricking awful that she did not stop and actually WAVED at you...you could have been seriously hurt!
Nov. 10th, 2006 03:14 am (UTC)
i saw what looked like the car later on parked in my apartment complex, though i haven't seen it for a bit now. i wanted to leave a note on their windshield, in case it was, but i wasn't positive, so...

geez louise! sending lots of hugs your way kiddo! fell better soon! also, watch the arm. alternate heat and cold packs to help with healing/swelling. take advil... geez.. if i would have been there....

That is horrible. I'm watching out for blue cars, now. :/
Nov. 10th, 2006 03:15 am (UTC)
wasn't there a song about that? ;)

and it always seems like stuff like that sets you off, too, when you're in thee least convenient place to lose it - like around coworkers or other people that wouldn't understand why you're sobbing because you stabbed yourself with a paperclip.
Apr. 23rd, 2006 08:07 am (UTC)
*hugs her*

*growls* That fucking cunt! I'm glad that you're ok. *hugs her again* I wish she could be found though.
Nov. 10th, 2006 03:17 am (UTC)
thank you :) i'm certain kharma fixes things eventually!
Apr. 23rd, 2006 08:09 am (UTC)
I've gotten almost run over about a million times. I'm surprised I haven't gotten hurt yet, since Phoenix is full of horrible drivers, and red-light runners, and I'm always a pedestrian.

It sucks, man. *hugs* I'm glad you're ok!!
Nov. 10th, 2006 03:19 am (UTC)
the longer i'm a pedestrian, the more i hate motorists, though i'm certain that if i spent more time in portland, i would hate cyclists, too.
Apr. 23rd, 2006 08:26 am (UTC)
When I got your messages I thought they were from a few days ago, this just happened??? *HUGS* How scary!!
There's this crosswalk by my house where SUVs always try to bully pedestrians to make a left turn so they get out in the middle of the intersection and then inch their bumper towards you, I hate that.
Nov. 10th, 2006 03:20 am (UTC)
Re: ACK!!
oooh, i hate that, though i get it more from people turning right with me walking towards them in the crosswalk. they honk at me all the time and get angry that i'm IN THE CROSSWALK WHEN THE LIGHT IS GREEN AND IT'S SAYING WALK. jerks.
Apr. 23rd, 2006 02:20 pm (UTC)
Holy Crap! I'm glad you're ok, but that woman.....oh yeah, Karma is looking for her. That's ridiculous. Stupid bitch. Atleast you can take heed knowing she'll get what she deserves....and hopefully soon.

Take some Aleve, and try to rest hun. Hope you feel better soon.
Nov. 10th, 2006 03:21 am (UTC)
aleve is my friend. so far, it's been the only thing that i have found that helps my feet from cramping up when i'm on them too long - i'm hoping it will work for my recent shoulder pain, too.
Apr. 23rd, 2006 02:40 pm (UTC)
She was probably chitchatting on her cell phone. I'm glad you're okay. Someone should try to figure out who that woman is. If she didn't see you, she's likely to mow over a small child.
Nov. 10th, 2006 03:23 am (UTC)
cell phones in the hands of drivers is an evil, evil thing ;) i've stood at that area, too, for over five minutes, watching cars go by even though there's a cross walk and a stop sign. sigh.

i always feel idiotic getting to work late and using the 'traffic was bad' excuse since i'm a pedestrian, but it's true!
Apr. 23rd, 2006 03:23 pm (UTC)
woah... BIG HUG!!!!
Apr. 23rd, 2006 03:44 pm (UTC)
Does anyone have common decency anymore? I hope you are ok now...if you need me to call up the posse to hunt that bitch down, just let me know!
Nov. 10th, 2006 03:25 am (UTC)
ha ha, you're my ubersupersneakysniperguy! yaaay!
Apr. 23rd, 2006 04:24 pm (UTC)
aw i hope you're alright. damn crazy lady.
Apr. 23rd, 2006 04:33 pm (UTC)
OMG Aubrey!!!!! Thank god you are ok! People are fucking insane, I cannot believe she just waved and drove off! That is absolutely horrible. But you're right, she's got some MAJOR karma coming her way. I hope you're feeling better hon. Take care :(
Nov. 10th, 2006 03:25 am (UTC)
and maybe - just maybe - she's a little bit more attentive when she's driving. i hope that it scared her just a little.
