Recent auto accident bill

Both my wife and I were taken to the emergency room. After x rays and a few other things during our latest car accident.

Over 3200 for the 2 of us. We still dont have the fire departments bill for transporting us either.

Talk about sticker shock for 4 hours of fun.

Didn't realize you were in an accident til this thread so I stalked your posts to see that you're in the market for a new vehicle! Hope you and DW are okay and are kicking the vicodin habit by now -- hope the person who hit you is responsible for all your bills, too!

Good to hear there was no permanent damage to you and your DW.

Was the person that rear ended you distracted, using a cellphone, or worse?

If were in your situation and had pain and suffering... I would consider filing suit and try to get a settlement. Might as well be compensated for the pain.

Transporting?

How about $16,000 for a seventeen minute helicopter ride?

As far as we know the woman was supposed to be following a friend. Maybe she got distracted. :confused:

I used to sing that and do the same little dance routine when Gabe was really little and wasnt having a happy moment. Nothing like a dorky white guy trying to dance to make a little one instantaneously happy.

I figure it'll be pretty useful when he's a teenager for embarrassment purposes. "Either you do what I say, or I'm doing 'cant touch this' for all of your friends..."
