|Posted: 12/5/2012 7:48:12 AM|So I'm early for my doctor's appt this morning, and I'm sitting in the car just killing time. All of a sudden, I hear a screech and look up to see a pickup had jumped the curb and is flying toward the building!! It crashed into the brick column right at the corner of the building, about 25' from where I'm parked, scaring the shit out of me in the process.
I called 911 and the fire dept is here now.
If I wasn't quite awake before, I am now!
|Posted: 12/5/2012 7:51:45 AM|I can't believe how many times incidents like this have happened lately... at least once a week there is a news story about another person crashing into a store or a house, etc... what the heck is going on??
I hope everyone is all right there!! (don't know if I'd want my blood pressure taken right now!!

Usually it is an elderly person at the wheel.

What if everything is an illusion & nothing exists
|Posted: 12/5/2012 9:14:11 AM|I'm pretty sure I would have peed myself. My luck I would have to have my blood pressure taken at that doctors appointment and it would be sky high!!! How scary! And yeah, what is up with all these large vehicles crashing into houses/buildings lately??
Get off my lawn!

I'm pretty sure I would have peed myself.
I would have done a lot more than wet myself. HOLY CRAP! I can't even imagine what it's like to see something like that. I would have warned the person taking my blood pressure that it was going to be a little higher than usual.

I think whoever was in the truck was okay, as they didn't bring any stretchers or anything like that over. By the time I was done with my appointment, the truck was gone.
Is there another word for synonym?
Loc: Right where I'm s'posed to be.

what the heck is going on??
DH and I were almost hit in a parking lot about a month ago. We were picking up pumpkins for Halloween and this older gentleman was pulling into a space right in front of us as we were walking in...if it wasn't for the concrete wheel bumper, we might have ended up in the hospital. As if was, his car almost went over it anyhow.
He got out and apologized all over the place, he said he'd just gotten new shoes and the side of his shoe caught the gas as he was trying to break (the were wide, stabilizing shoes for the elderly).
So, it isn't always ineptness or drugs. In our case, it was an honest mistake.
I'm just a pea:)

Holy cow! Glad you're okay and it didn't hit you

That had to be scary!! I'm in the camp that would have wet myself. LOL
There was a news story last week in St. Louis that a man in a truck ran over a pregnant woman and then hit a building. From what the news said he was under the influence of something and had open containers.
