Murphy enjoys breaking cars and me while L
is on shift! Two summers ago, my brakes locked up, and I hit stopped
traffic. I totaled my car, in the county he works in (the county we live
in is bordered by it).
was coming off shift, but I couldn't reach him. He'd already left, and
was on his motorcycle. I called the station, just in case he was still
there. His Lt answered, and promptly sent half the county county it
seemed like! I refused to let anyone look at me (no serious injuries,
lots of airbag and upholstery burns) until L got there.
forward about 18 months, and I'm sitting on the interstate, in stopped
traffic, and some fool is gawking off too the side of the road, and hits
a car, which hits me, and I tap into the person in front of me who was
also stopped. That was the beginning of November, and he was coming off
shift, over an hour away. It took until the end if February to get my
car in to be fixed, and then 2 (!) months to get it back.
those two months, I got hit in the rental car! My sedan got hit by a
giant Yukon driven by a little old lady, who said she couldn't see me. L
was headed on shift at the PT job, but I was in the county bordering
that county, so he got the guy coming off shift to cover so he could
check on me.
All of my ER visits since meeting him over 5 years ago have been while he's on shift - 'nuff said!
