"Ay, ay, a scratch, a scratch; marry, 'tis enough," he says.

I got a call yesterday afternoon from Brentyn, who had borrowed my baby Carrot for the day, telling me that Carrot had received some scratches.

Scratches.

Here are Carrot's "scratches":



My poor baby Carrot has gotten into her first accident. Which miraculously did not involve me.

When I bought Carrot, I knew she was going to be hurt. After all, it's my very first car and I have only passed my driving test eight months ago. Who would have known her first accident would be caused by somebody else?

And who would have known it'll cost at least $7000 to get her doors replaced? The Toyota Yaris is a car with very expensive doors...thank goodness for insurance cover.

At least Brentyn's doing all he can to get Carrot fixed up and as good as new. The heart still hurts. But it's only a car right?

The poor driver? - what about the poor car?? I think any and all criticism of such reckless driving is just and fair!

“Reckless” is a tough word…. It would be interesting to have comment from the driver…. Maybe it was unavoidable…

I just hope your insurance experience is relatively hassle-free...

On my part it was. I didn't have to do a single thing. The driver and the boyfriend took care of everything. It was great! Even got a hire car to use while Carrot was being amputated.
