Car accident

I'm not sure if I have to be excited because it's my first car accident or should I get pissed off because I have to fix the car in days because my license renew is due next week.

I was on the queue to traffic light when someone decided to pass a queue of like 30 car to get directly into traffic light so he took the other side of the street where another race was started and just before reaching the traffic light to avoid a serious accident with the champs he decided to hit my car instead.

Thankfully I'm fine.

    he is an idiot and he deserves a huge punishment, I totally hate it when they come from behind taking other people's turn, and the weird thing this is the default behavior for many drivers :S!

  6. Ok, and one more thing? Are you going to post pictures of your car for those of us who are morbidly curious? :P

    I don't think this counts as an accident for you, although technically it is.

    But unless you tumble down a cliff there really is nothing to be excited about. In fact, in this incident, you should think of it as saving someone's life instead of you having an accident.

    On the down side, I hope your car is not a new one, because no amount of fixing can bring a car back to its original state.

  9. Wow, on seeing the first picture, I expected the damage to be much worse, guess he wasn't going that fast.

    Anyway, I'm glad you're ok.

    Incidentally, someone I've never met asked me some questions about being a developer in Amman, and I answered the ones I could, and told her to try asking you. Hope you don't mind.
