Life and the human condition never cease to amaze. Today I watched my car get hit in a parking lot. 10am, sunny, and quiet. Just as I came out of the mall I glanced at my car parked in the first stall from the doors (40ft away), and caught a glimpse of a late model Toyota Highlander backing into the rear diagonally. There was nothing between my eyes and that car. It rocked the car.
I watched the driver put it in Drive and a move forward 6ft before my legs kicked in. We met in the middle and I was at the end of the hood. I stepped around to the downed driver’s window and said,“You just hit my car. Why are you driving away?” Clearly in extreme shock they replied, “It’s okay, I have sensors.”
I SHIT YOU, NOT.
