My ex-wife hit a deer with our brand new F150 (2 months old). She called me crying (it was her truck, I had a Mustang). I asked if she was okay...and when she said, "yes, but I know you're going to start yelling!" All I could do was laugh... I proceeded to talk to her while she brought the truck back to work (we both worked at the dealership, she was the secratary for the body shop). When she got back she was sobbing to the point of gasping for air.... I went out and waited for her to get out and immediately hugged her and asked if she was sure she was okay. She said yes. I asked why she was so upset.... she proceeded to say, "I don't understand why you aren't yelling and it scares me!".... LOL. I said it was a car, she was okay....and it was her car.... LOL Now when she got pulled over for doing 75 in a 55, that was a different story!!! LOL Good thing the state trooper that pulled her over was a good customer of mine and recognized the last name.
Cars are just objects... they aren't life. And I learned long ago, that if it was an accident, not to worry about it, but if it as and accident because someone was doing something stupid, that was a different story! Glad your wife is okay.
