Ask your insurance adjuster about loss of use and lost wages.Post your story's of what happened today, just to vent.
I will start with mine.
Avoided death today.
Riding on a road with a trailer and a bobcat on it. Minding my own business, suddently car infront of me, brakes lightly then moves abrubly to the right, ghostrider came at me at full speed. I can tell you this, that guy was FAST in front of my car holy shit, janked my car to the right as fast as i could, digged into the car infront of me which was not standing still on the right side, and the clown hitted me on the side where i sit, luckely he deflected at the very end so no damage on me. but the car is pretty bad hit.
White one is the ghostrider.
My little fan.
Pretty sad to see however, feels like my little car is like exhausted sad panda.
Any mister douchebag that tried to delete me in a few seconds from this world, had a real attitude of not wanting to work with me. The cops got a little bit upset as he didn't realized thow he just financially fucked me entirely as i am completely depended on the car and the car isn't worth much through insurance money as its a bit older now but has lots of emotional value to me as i got it from my dad which always drove it when he passed earlier this year. As i basically was telling my life story to this cop. So they facepalmed him in the ground and sended him off to a day in jail which they basically can do. Also he basically drove on the wrong side of the road so yea its kinda you know attempt at murder at this point.
Anyway, that was mine Saturday.
Went to Rotterdam by car during my summer vacation, out of Germany. I hated driving the ridiculous speed limit in the Netherlands, but on the other hand, it was kinda relaxing to just swim around in traffic at a hundred, instead of constantly being stressed out by delivery vans riding your rear bumper at 180 all the time. But a permanent speed limit of a hundred would probably break me or land me in prison or poverty
Holy cow, that's crazy! As in the definition of "insane". Really curious as to his intentions, and, it's a miracle neither you or any other rule-following drivers were seriously hurt.
It remains to be seen if it's a miracle the Human Torpedo is ok. You'll need to update us if/when the courts make a verdict on him!
Jesus dude i hope you are okay.
Can't the insurance pay the damage to your car since it is fully his fault?

Glad you're ok but I've never heard ghostrider in this context. What does it mean?
i always buy spigen cases. check them out. good quality and not expensive.Got a phone case. Why are phone cases so god awful chunky these days? And expensive. I'm not paying $30 for a piece of molded rubber. Or $40 for a piece of molded rubber that also comes with a piece of molded plastic.
I got a case from UAG that was half as much as an Otterbox case for the same thing. Feels like it's worth about $5.
here we call them a Zimmer!Took a walk to my local grocery store and when waiting to cross the street I saw an old (85+ easily) with a... how do you call it? A walker? Yes a walker I looked it up. Anyways. She asked me to help her cross the street so i did. When on the sidewalk we made some small talk and she started talking about wanting to leave the area (there's new building being build) so I was like yeah it ain't getting prettier. Then out of nowhere she said "yeah and all these foreigners there's no one of "us" left". So in my head I was having a nice little interaction and then boom racism lmao. I asked if she was ok for now so I could nope out.
i woke up at about 4am which is normal for me. at that time i'm usually wide awake and ready to go but this morning i couldn't be arsed. plus it's saturday so i can sleep in. fucked about on my phone for a bit but went back to sleep. woke up again about 6. fell back asleep until about 9 when i got up, let the cats out, and cleaned out the leaves from my garden while my breakfast cooked. went back to sleep until 1pm.
since then just been sitting at my desk listening to music, playing games, and reading shit online. it's not almost 5pm so got a beer. probably gonna play some fifa/rocket league.
nothing is planned for tonight. might order some chinese food and watch some netflix all on my own lol
here we call them a Zimmer!
i try to be nice and kind to old people but it's not uncommon they hit out with racist stuff.
As is fate the smoke alarm batteries started to die in the middle of the night. So I was out at 3 am scrounging for 9 volt batteries to end the maddening chirping. Since I was up and had the ladder out I went ahead and changed all 10 of them and the HVAC filters. Now I'm going to grill some burgers and Italian sausage for lunch and then take a nap.
Life is nothing but comedies and tragedies.

Update on my car crash part.
Dude got send to jail, as he was involved in a bunch of other shit also, he ended up being suicidal alright as they found a note, but they also searched for his ass for other things they didn't disclose so yea rip him.
The accident involved 3 people, 1 guy i drove in the back and total loss his car while i was dodging the ghost rider, with my car getting destroyed by the ghostrider. To get to raw numbers, the trailer is worth like 5.000 euro's, and the car is worth like 70.000 euro's that's in new state, as both where a bit older now and they had a lot of miles on them, the trailer was 2.500 and the car was worth 4000. The reason for 4000 was because of falling out of a energy bracket which basically makes the car on resale worth nothing.
So as both where total loss basically as the trailer was bend at the front from the impact it had to endure, the Insurance company offered 5500 for both of them to be done with it. Now as i lost wages, i lost clients, i can't get anything for that money maybe a super expensive bike but that's about it, its ridiculous low. So i got some insurance guy on my side to work with there insurance to see if they could get something going, so after lots of talks and lots of more talks for a couple of weeks now, they basically offer me about 21.500 total its a take it or leave it type of deal. Which at this point helps me out, as i can basically lease another fan with it and replace the trailer for 2.500 with another one for about 16.500, the other 4 to compensate me for my lost wages. The new fan will have a better energy label which will result in drastically increase in work and lower costs so at the end it works out well.
The other guy, got screwed by his insurance also as i added him to whatsapp to ask if everything was going well for him. he got like barely nothing back for his car like 2.000, he paid like 5k or something a year ago for it. So he was massively dissapointed, so i asked my insurance guy while he was working with the ghostrider ensurance and he ended up squising 10k for him out of it becuase of it ( its basically a lawyer that gets hired by my insurance company so he could cover him also for 500 which i paid for him ).
Dude was massively happy about that, a week later he calls me up and asked his boss which ended up being my biggest client to help me out with my fan situation. He went around with company's that are connected towards him, they ended up really needing somebody like me as i sit in a segment that's basically nobody cant find anybody for. and they basically are getting a new fan for me a brand new one that's worth 50k, if i do jobs for them for free the next year which at the end costs me like like 12k about that, i get it for free. So its basically a gift.
So yea, shit is going pretty darn well.
About injuries, as the airbags didn't go off in the car for some reason. My left shoulder hurts like hell because of the belt that keeps you in place, its still a bit annoying when driving longer ways but its recovering i feel like so that's good.
So yea, at the end of the day not to bad.
Thanks for the tip, did exactly that and it opened a lot more doors.
That's crazy. Here in the US the at-fault driver's insurance pays for everything, and if they run out of liability coverage your insurance company covers what there's cannot while going after them legally without you ever having to worry about it. It happened to me with a brand new car that got totaled by some old pill head that wasn't supposed to be driving. She totaled a bunch of cars, including mine, and her insurance ran out around $35k - when my car alone was worth more than that.
Anyways, I'm happy things kind of worked out in the end, and most of all that you were able to walk away from the crash.
