Caldus Posted November 27, 2004 Share Posted November 27, 2004 This is not a "I don't have a girlfriend and I wish I did" kind of post. This is a different kind of topic actually. So don't be misled by the title of the topic. I got into a very small accident a few weeks ago. It was my fault. I did not yield to a U-turn and ended up putting a nice big dent on some woman's left door (I broke the right hand turn blinker light cover on my car). So the police came and all of that other stuff. The woman seemed very cooperative with us and didn't seem too mad at me. In fact we had small talk for a little while we waited for the police to come. First thing I asked her when I got out of the car and came up to her was "are you OK?" and she said "yes." So a few days after the accident I find out that she had gone to the hospital to get "checked-up" from the accident (I believe she was in the emergency room and not sure why). She must've done this to try and raise my insurance and to reduce the costs on her end. So I called my insurance person or whatever and told them that she said that she was OK at the time of the accident (so she claimed). At the time of the accident I had also made another mistake: I told the police that it was my fault that this happened but for some reason he did not give me a ticket. I was just trying to be honest with everyone so that I would not get into any more trouble but guess what? Now that I told people that it was my fault I think my insurance is going to raise instead of just not saying anything and the insurance would probably not raise. So I learned from all of this that I shouldn't tell the police that it wasn't my fault (or anyone for that matter) when it comes to accidents. Of course before this happened I believed in being honest and upfront with people. I believe in being nice and making up for things if I did something bad to someone (or their car, whatever it may be). So yeah it sucks being a nice guy. Ag, I'm tired of putting myself through this. I should just become the jerk type but I know deep inside it's wrong and I can't just change like that. Ah well. Quote Link to comment
