Looks like the taillight, rear quarter panel and rear bumper. That's if nothing internal is damaged.

It's a car, nothing fancy so I'm not too upset about it. As long as it gets fixed I'm OK with that. It does bug me to see it banged up, since I try to take good care of it!

+1, well said, Vit!

And Addie, sure hope the Pirate feels better soon, and that you don't get what he has!

Thanks, yeah it's kind of a pain to deal with, but life happens, I can't see putting myself or him through more stress, it's just not healthy.

To me it's a car, an appliance. Yeah it's my second biggest possession after my house, but as long as I'm made whole I'm OK with that.

Now if the adjusters try to give me issues, I WILL cause them stress Luckily my neighbor sells insurance and one of my best friends is a former adjuster, so I won't be completely in the dark.

@Bakechef

"I feel bad for anyone that drives for a living and has an accident. I guess that if his accelerator got stuck that it was better to happen here when there was nobody around than having it happen at the school as he was dropping off kids!"

That is such a kind attitude to have! Some people, probably even myself, would have cussed first----- THEN thought what you did.

In hindsight, I should have run out the front door holding my neck, It might have lightened up the mood!

I am the one who always takes care of the ones with the flu. For some strange reason I just don't get it. Never have. I don't even get the flu shot. The Pirate is resting mostly.

Well, after finishing the vacation laundry, it is obvious that DH needs to be much more closely monitored when he packs. No man needs 15 tshirts, 8 pairs of shorts, 7 swim trunks, 3 polo shirts, and 3 pairs of shoes. For a 12 day tropical vacation. And he didn't even wear most of the stuff. No wonder the suitcase was so heavy! My "hers" laundry pile was about 1/4th the height of the "his" laundry pile.

From now on, he will be limited to a small rollaboard, we will only check the bag with the snorkel equipment.

It's usually the opposite--- the woman takes everything she owns and the man doesn't even remember the toothbrush.

I read something once about how to pack/plan for a vacation.
Take half the amount of clothes and twice the amount of money.
