Yesterday I had a moment. I dropped Joseph off at school and noticed the "Hummer Lady" picking up her kids. I saw that none of them were strapped into seat belts, some were riding in the front seat. We are talking about 4 and 5 year old kids. I saw her in her beat up car with a tail light out make a left hand turn and I sort of snapped. I followed her home and parked my car and got out and confronted her.
I asked when exactly was she going to take care of the money she owes me for hitting my car. She said "It was not me" I said "Six people saw you and followed you home to this house!" she said "I do not pick up my kids at 11:30" I said "I Just saw you pick them up Right this moment" Then she said "You have to talk to my husband" and I said "Why? You were the one driving you were the one that hit me?" and off into the house she goes. Soon the husband comes out. I ask him about the $3000 he owes my insurance company, the $500 he owes ME for the accident that took place in November. He says he bought the car in January. I said he was lying and I was done with the lies I googeled his home and saw that car in front of this house in December. He said he talked to my insurance company. I said no he had not because I talked to them and they have not heard anything from them. Then I went off. I said I see the kids not in seat belts. I said she damaged MY property and left the scene and that's a crime and I am out $500 and I want it taken care of. I said I did not want an attorney but they are leaving me no choice. sigh.
It was horrible. But it felt good to get it all of my chest. I told the kids that were standing there watching the whole thing (not mine, hers) to make sure they are wearing seat belts, I didn't want them hurt. They needed to be safe. I wanted them to do the right thing. They said "ok" and I was off. I hope they bug their parents about what they heard and saw. I won't let this rest. Dom thought I was crazy. A bit scared for me. I am tired of people thinking they can just get away with stuff like this.
I hope I caused them to come to action. We'll see.
I'll keep you posted.
