BEING NICE IS STUPID

i did the unthinkable, i became nice, but it didn’t last long so don’t worry. i was nice and because of that the douchebags that i had to deal with thought that they could walk all over me, but bobby doesn’t let that shit happen.

what?

basically, i was in a car accident, vehicle was damaged beyond repair, i went to purchase a new vehicle because it is fucking cold here and really hard to cart two little fuckers around, dealership won’t give me my new vehicle until lien is removed from financing company, finance company won’t remove lien until manitoba public insurance settles with them.

so what the fuck am i supposed to do? i have been without a vehicle for a month now. forget the fact that its freezing, forget that i have two kids under the age of two. i am self employed! i have had to postpone meetings and make new arrangements with clients. this is costing me money.

i was annoyed on monday. i called the finance company, i was calm and extremely polite, i wanted to kick my own ass. left a message, no call back. getting angrier. i call manitoba public insurance to see if i could get some extra compassionate care and a rental car while they dispute with the finance company. left a message. nobody calls me back. just a little bit more angrier. an hour passes. i leave more messages. and another. and another.

ring!

finance company calls me back. they blame manitoba public insurance for the delay. i am annoyed and i know this is a cop out. i try really hard to be polite, but there is no empathy and no ownership on their part. i finally lose it. i don’t give a fuck at who is to blame, bottom line is i don’t have a vehicle and you fucking bastards are not doing anything to help.

maybe you should call manitoba public insurance and get a rental.

sounds reasonable, after all i pay insurance for shit like this. leave another message. finally get a call back and am promptly informed that they were doing me a courtesy by calling me back. what the fuck? i am told that they will not give me a vehicle because they sent a settlement to the finance company. but wait a minute, i still have no fucking vehicle. they blame the finance company.

so what’s a motherfucker to do?

dealership called me told me that my vehicle is still on their lot. thats great i love having a vehicle i can’t drive. no one is returning my calls anymore. i am just getting more pissed as the time passes. i am now calling them every 15 minutes and leaving messages like “are you done yet, call me.” my wife is calling them every 15 minutes asking the same thing. anthony calls every 15 minutes, but i have him saying “i’m cold, where’s my fucking car? call me.”

IT HURTS TO WRITE THIS

2006 hyundai tucsonso i am back again. i bet you all have written me off as some blogger hack who can’t cut the mustard (cut the mustard? is that a saying?), but you would be wrong…again. so now you are probably feeling pretty bad for doubting me, but i forgive you, you are only human and humans make mistakes. so let me tell you what happened to me and why i haven’t been participating in this online community.

january 15th, 2008 – michelle (my wife) was going to teach a private swimming lesson and i thought it would be a great idea to take anthony (he loves swimming, i hate swimming, it’s just so pointless). so we get ready, get anthony really excited and we’re on our way. fucking eh!the swimming pool is a 5 minute drive from my home, but we had to pick up michelle’s student so we would take about 10 minutes. so on the way to michelle’s student (we will call her from now on no swim) we get into a pretty bad car accident. we are little banged up, but not badly hurt, anthony didn’t even cry.

so what happened?

a moron decided to go through an intersection without looking. i hit her passenger side door at about 50 km/hour, pushed her car up onto a snow bank and a tree. i was in shock. what the fuck happened. i have never been in a accident and was experiencing a number of emotions. i was worried about michelle and anthony. i was angry that this stupid cunt (yeah i said it) endangered the life of my wife and child. i was concerned about my vehicle, it being a newer car and me still owing more then it has depreciated, i was concerned that if it was to get written off (and it definitely was going to be written off) that i would have to owe a residual amount that insurance would not cover.

conclusion

so the point is i have not been able to write because i banged up my wrist and the therapist told to take it easy, which has been incredibly hard for me to do (no playing, no drawing, no weightlifting).

my wife is a little worse off then me. she is suffering from back pains, shoulder pains, leg pains, and neck pains. she is still functional (she’s kinda this tough chick), but i am finding myself helping out a lot more then before. i guess thats good, but i still have to make a living and seriously these kids drive me crazy.

anthony is fine, he hasn’t complained once about aches or pains. he is just upset that he didn’t get to go swimming, he still talks about it. he did get a bad cold and cough after the accident, but i don’t think it’s related.

isabelle is good. she was visiting her grandma so she wasn’t with us.my car was written off.

so now i’m car-less. can’t get a new one because michelle is on maternity and i am self employed. since i have only been self employed for a couple months i don’t have an accurate record of income. michelle and i have gone without vehicle before, but we are finding it extremely hard to get around now with two small children, especially in -40 degrees celsius weather (actually today it is -50 degrees celsius, my dog doesn’t even want to go outside).

nothing else to do but get on with life. shit happens. i understand this. i know things will get better, but that doesn’t mean i can’t still be pissed about it. the morale of this story is don’t be a fucking moron, your stupid, idiotic decisions don’t just affect you. it’s like throwing a rock in a lake, even the smallest rock will make ripples.
