Bang, bang, bang went the van.
Had another accident. I was trying to get out of the left lane, and someone in a van (who must have been in my blind spot, though I’d have sworn there was no-one there) hit me as he tried to get past me. Messed up that end of the bumper, and the fender too.
Just dropped the car off at a body shop. Dealt with the insurance, already got the check. (Five hundred less than their estimate – deductible. Car rental (Enterprise) delivered a rental vehicle to the shop. It’s part of the creeping future.
When we bought the ’16 Hyundai, I was surprised to find that there was no trunk keyhole. You have to hold down a button on your fob to open it – or, apparently, sit or move or think of something, as the trunk opens a lot by itself. Well, this car doesn’t even have an ignition lock. You just keep the fob in your pocket, and push a button on the dash. The shift lever is a dial. And whenever I stop, so does the engine. Might be a hybrid?
In any case, as usual, whenever I start to get a handle on the future, they move it on me. I’ve been reading about the future for nearly 60 years – and no one thought it would be this damn annoying.
