Ugh.

I scratched a parked car and then backed up and dented another today. It was documented, an officer was there, insurance information was exchanged. I feel so fucking bad. I just wanted to vent about this, I can't even believe I hit either car--I've never even been in an accident before. And when the officer was talking to the other people in question, I could hear them laughing at me--I almost cried when the officer asked me if there was anybody who could drive me home, I've never felt so incompetent.

Let me tell you one thing: accidents are statistically likely to happen in your life. I myself have been in two, both minor (luckily). Now, the people laughing at you are assholes.

Know this: you are perfectly fine not knowing what to do regarding your first accident. For me, it felt like I had broken a sacred fucking vow or something. Driving culture sucks.

In any case it would be a battle of critical thinking and I refuse to fight an unarmed individual.

Been there, done that. Last time I backed in to someone's car in a grocery store parking lot, because we were both backing out at the same time.

Just use it as a life lesson when driving: look, then look again, then move, and keep looking.

Or as my mom put it "Look left, look right, then look left again before you turn."

If you're going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the Gods, and the nights will flame with fire.

Its kinda silly to complain that a friendly NPC isn't a well designed boss fight.
