They try to make it sound….(Abloggymoms Writing Prompt)June 4, 2013 - Author: Mango
I have a little bit of a heavy topic, but it’s a topic we…meaning my family deals with on a DAILY BASIS. RACISM!
Friday was the last day of school for Erinn. Every year they have an annoying carnival, that I usually go alone to, because the Hubs has been busy for the last 3 plus years with school and his many jobs, so that I can have the luxury of staying home with our kids, and to keep away from civilization with my mental issues.
It’s actually pretty nice, but since we finally got the Hubs through school and things were slowing down, I was FINALLY not going to be alone. I think my daughter’s teachers thinks my husband is an mirage’ or a front, because they never see us together.
SO as I am conveniently running late for the picnic that their having before the last day carnival, and I live a block and a half down the street, the phone rings. I was sure it was the hubs who as looking for me, because he left his iPhone and only had his low budget work phone (I only say low budget because it has no amenities, and I can’t see when he’s typing back on that phone), and I’m late…living down the street.
I answer, it’s the Hubs.
“I got hit by a semi!” He says with heavy breathing.
I am freaked out because I can’t see it and I need to know he’s ok.
“You WHAT?!!! I yell, while trying to understand.
“I got hit with a semi, and this lady won’t pull over!!!”
“YOU BETTER CALL THE POLICE AND GIVE HIM THE TAG NUMBER!!!!! I yelled frantically. as he hung up.
I had just bought me, him and the girls a lunchable and a nice cold tea, but now my appetite was ruined. He called back..
“The lady finally pulled over…3miles away, She wouldn’t get over. She got out of the truck and said, she didn’t see me. She asked me did I call the law. I said yea I did, you wouldn’t pull over! and the lady cursed, because she knew she was wrong.”
It turns out, there was a male passenger who got out of the semi and said he didn’t see anything, he was sleep. My Hubs is a chocolate and muscular built guy, so he looks very intimidating. The police arrive and he separates them. At this point the semi driver is saying that my Hubs cut her off.
My husband got on the highway a ways back from even the accident because that’s were his job is . The semi was in the middle lane, the Hubs was in the far right lane because he would get off soon. He didn’t have to do any major turning because his exit was soon. About a mile up the road, at the exit. He was about to get off, when the semi clips him, what he thought out of nowhere. If you know the impact that can have on a little car, he could’ve spent out, and it could’ve been a lot worse.
The semi driver is swearing up and down to the police that the Hubs tried to cut her off, and the “sleeping” passenger cooperated her story.
Isn’t it pure knowledge that when you rear end someone..unless special circumstances, that it’s the rear-enders fault for failure to control their vehicle. Had The Hubs tried to cut her off, he would’ve got T-Boned…you think, going into the middle lane from the right to cut her off. Sooo… The police spent a lot of time with the semi and her male passenger, and instructed the Hubs, while he was taking pics on his low budget phone, to get back in the car, put on his seat belt and don’t be in their face. He wanted to write the Hubs a ticket based on the story of the semi lady, but because my husband has a clean driving record, he knew he wasn’t lying. The police asked “did you have your seatbelt on”…REALLY!! Was he going to give him a ticket if he said no. Needless to say, he just said that he “couldn’t” write a ticket, because there wasn’t more than $1500 of damage, and to let the insurance companies hash it out.
WHAT DOES THAT SOUND LIKE TO YOU?!
So “they made it sound like” the Hubs was reckless, and it was ALL his fault.
