A Moment

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.

You didn't report them to the police at the time? Couldn't they be charged with leaving the scene of an accident or something? I have to say that took some balls to follow her home. I'm too chicken to have done that. I just don't trust the crazy people out there. WOW. So what's your next step?

I felt my adrenaline rushing while reading what you did as if I was right there with you. Good for you and shame on them. Shame on them from a-z. Sure they didn't want to pay. Who does? Sure they are prob hurting for money but who isn't? Just do the right thing people. She made a boo boo. Fix it. Guess they did. Guess you forced them. Good for you balls of fire Tamika. I for one think you did the exact right thing. I know you didn't know what you were walking into and that part is scary (never know what folks will do) but needed to be done. Or it wouldn't have been fixed. GOOD FOR YOU!
