A Captain in the British Army.





Let me explain quickly...

Driving to my bands gig at the Bar Academy in Brum earlier today in major rush hour traffic through the centre of Brum town centre (which, to you Yanks, is the UK's second largest city and biggest dump in existance). I didn't know the route well and while crawling (stop-start-stop-start) through a tunnel, I (stupidly) think "I need to get into the right hand lane" so i indicate and check my mirrors and my right blindspot. My car is moving no more than about 5mph, maybe more or less when a split second later: BOMP!


Right in the back of a nice BMW.


My world died on me.


Turns out the guy was a very nice family man.

His car had the Worlds Tiniest Dent and my number plate has a couple of scratches on it and looks a tad wonky.

Oh, and while exchanging insurance details (why? i dunno...I offered to send him a cheque to get the Worlds Smallest Dent buffered out) and upon seeing his Licence....


He's a Captain in the British Army


So pit...

Never had any accident.


Oh wait, once I rolled on a cat. It was during night. It was winter, and it was snowing. I thought it was a plastic bag flying around. It was a cat.

Blessedly, never been in an accident. Been damn close on many occasions, a fair amount of them my fault.

Well around 17, I was driving at night from the hospital, to see my uncle, who was in the ER. I was about 2/3 of the way home when I decided to take a longer route.. just for the heck of it. I drove down the itty bitty road, not very cautiously.. when A deer runs right out infront of my car. I swerved to avoid it (dumbass thing to do), and I ended up going down a 25ft embankment. Car caught on fire, I ended up with third degree burns on my right ankle. And the hospital visit I don't so much remember.

Pretty much the same accident although I was going closer to 10 mph. I had sped up and was about to change lanes when boom. I felt like a real idiot/asshole afterwards until I realized that that type of thing is extremely likely/common when driving in heavy stop and go traffic.

Oh God yeah. Most accidents are caused in rush hour traffic.

But..


I wont call my Insurance Company. No point. This can be easily sorted out.


Still.....

A Captain???!!

Are you dyslexic? I do believe that 53 is 35 backwards.


Just kidding

I was in the car with my Aunt and she was driving. It was raining hard and as we go through an intersection the car started to very slowly spin out. I slowly turned my head to face her as the car spins in slow motion and give her a "wtf are you doing" look.

I remember it in a humourous and cinematic fashion so it's probably not very funny to you.

My father let the car slide into snow filled ditch when I was but a wee lad. It wasn't fun waiting for the tow.

I've been flashed by a police camera.


That was a week ago, so it's probably been dismissed.

I love driving, but it can be a bitch.

An accident can be someone else's fault. You're either a troll or an idiot.

A deer ran into the road and I hit it once. It was okay, even though I must have been traveling 40 mph.
I think I'm pretty damn lucky. I've seen what deer can do to cars.

once, i was being a jackass in my car. you know, drifting with the e-brake

well i was doing it in a neighborhood that was under construction which made it safer, i hit a patch of mud and smashed into one of those portopotties(haha SP?) and knocked it over. I wanted somebody to climb out of it covered in **** so badly

I couldn't stop laughing about that for a week, hell i still think it's funny.

yea I bumped into a car once, first "accident" ever...this happened only a few months ago too.

I was at a stop sign waiting for the person in front of me to go. They let off their brake pedal and so when I see their lights go of and they start moving forward I look left (and you really have to look hard left because of the strange angle this street is at) but anyways the next thing I remember is hitting the car (it was a family van, nothing major) and I just start worrying what would happen next.

Anyways we both pull to the next parking lot and check the cars out. I didn't see any damage on any of the cars and didn't expect any since it was a very low speed bump.

Turns out they started rolling and then out of nowhere, stopped again when I wasn't looking. They lady was nice. I asked if the kids (also in her van) were ok and she said yes. She said she would take my license plate number down and I did the same for her, (yea the plate number was strange....) but anyways I never heard from them again.

The only real damage on my car was a crack in the plastic thing that goes around your license plate...nothing worth replacing anyways.

My dad used to drive a school bus 12 years ago. He put me in the driver's seat (at age 3) and I managed to somehow drive the bus into a pond.
Did you know the odds of a Vault-Tec shelter failing are 1,763,497 to 1?

So imagine life in a Vault-Tec Vault. Not just a future.
