Yesterday I was on my way to our church in Marshfield, Mo to take food and serve at a funeral dinner. I was passing a VW bug and as I went around around it she suddenly turned left and I Tboned her. Do people truly NOT understand the reason for using a BLINKER? And that the law gives you a certain number of feet to turn in on before you turn? And that checking your mirrors before turning is required as well?
IF she had used her blinker, this would never have happened!!! I am sore, bruised and hurting. No broken bones, no ambulances. I am truly blessed that Heavenly Father watched over me during this accident! And Glad he was watching over the other driver as well.
Today I cancelled Wed class (well last night I did- sorry Karen I forgot to call you but glad you stopped by lol) to rest, the medications I have been given make me very groggy and tired but I wanted to read a few emails and post this so you know what happened to me- not the post I wanted to share but
because of this blinker issue, I want all of you to REALIZE JUST HOW important using the blinker in your car really is!!! And YES! IT CAN happen to you!
The blue is a VW bug and is the car I Tboned, the red durano is me
The shadow figure is me, taking the photo with my cell phone camera.
If she had looked in her mirrors and turned on her blinker BEFORE turning this would NEVER have happened! How is a driver to know you are turning when you dont use your blinkers?
So anyhow, I never made it to the funeral dinner, but the food did! (thank you to my friend Debi for helping me and to her hubby Carl for waiting with me till Kay arrived! you guys are awesome friends!)
I have a great TIP for you! USE the "press and seal" plastic wrap by Glad on your food because... the huge stainless bowl I had the salad in, I had the press and seal over the top and it bounced all over the place and never lost a drop of salad! The bottle of dressing ended up in the passenger side dash by the window tho.
All in all, the muscles in my entire body are sore and hurt today with the exception of my feet, my chest hurts a lot becasue of the good grip the seat belt had on me YAY! thank you God for seat belts because I would either be dead or in worse shape if I had not been wearing it! I did go to the ER and nothing is broken, but I do have 3 prescriptions for my aches and pains and they make me very sleepy so am leaving you all to go back to bed.
I am truly very sorry this happened. PLEASE tell your family and friends to USE THEIR BLINKERS ALL THE TIME WHEN THEY ARE GOING TO TURN, and prevent anything like this happening to them!
hugs to all
