Not too long ago I drove my car close to 1,000 miles round trip into the northern part of Mexico. I had absolutely zero problems.

The day before yesterday, I drove my car into Juarez, Mexico and drove all over the place. When I returned to the international bridge to get back home to the States, I experienced a living hell.

The lines were bumper to bumper, and when I reached the top of the bridge and started rolling down at the speed of a TURTLE, my foot suddenly slipped off the clutch and I TAPPED the car in front of me which was about seven feet away from mine. You can’t even call it an accident, but only a mere incident where my car tapped the car in front of mine. I have an itty bitty car that is light in weight and looks like a toy. The car I hit was much bigger than mine, and the only damage I caused hers was a TINY dent that I would have had my insurance attend to. This healthier than a horse woman got out of her car, stomped just like a bull all the way to me and made the biggest stink you can imagine. She started yelling for the immigration officers, and they ALL came. They ALL walked (escorted me) along side my car, then directed me little further where they bring out the dogs to sniff cars. I couldn’t believe it when I saw two police cars with their blinky red lights on approach me! LO and BEHOLD! The woman suddenly started limping!! I was kept there for TWO WHOLE hours filling out oodles of paper work, showing my insurance card, and driver’s license. I was surrounded as if I were a HORRIBLE criminal by both immigration officers and cops. It’s not in my nature to lose my cook, but I finally did, and yelled sarcastically at the whole bunch of them that I just couldn’t believe how this tiny little incident that couldn’t even be called an accident had become a circus. But I understand since the horrible woman was reacting as if I had hit her at 60 miles per hour on the freeway. I later felt terrible that I had been so rude with them, since the only reason they were all huddled around me at the scene of the CRIME, was because the woman was totally out of control, so much so that I was positive she would soon demand an ambulance. I’m positive this woman was starting to have serious thoughts in a big way of suing me for big buck!

Now, I have to appear in court. I’ve already contacted my lawyer, because I have this sickening feeling that the woman is going to pretend extreme bodily injury! Believe me, NOTHING happened to her! I’ve also contacted my insurance company to tell them EXACTLY what happened and explained exactly what happened, and the minute damage that was caused to my car and the woman’s. I ask them to please have someone come to my house and take pictures so they could see that the only damage to my car are a couple of scratches.

What damage can you do to a car when you hit someone in the back, when all cars are traveling bumper to bumper at approximately ONE mile per hour? I’m very angry. Anyway, before this happened, I got some horror stories from the citizens there about the dreadful things that are going on there. I’ll eventually make a post about it.

Yesterday, Lolly, Glory, and Norma got together at my favorite Chinese restaurant. I cried on their shoulder which made me feel much better, especially when they picked up the tab! Heh heh

To take my mine off my woes, I’m putting together a picture album along with true stories of things that make me happy, and that is my family; Grandpa and ALL my 4-legged kids to share with you! I've been neglecting my icon community, due to such limited time, for the longest time, so I think I'll start making more icons to forget that woman who honestly looked like a snorting bull!

I should have walked, or gone on my bicycle like I started doing months ago, instead of driving my car over there! By and by, had this little accident happened on the Juarez, Mexican side, I would have batted my eyelashes at the police and given him a mordida (few bucks) to forget about the whole thing, and that would have settled the matter right then and there.

Everybody likes to throw a fit at an accident, even very minor ones. Just keep your cool and retain that lawyer.

That's true, but this woman went too far. I'll take your advice in November.

Thank you!

What an idiot that woman was. Hopefully nothing comes of this for you.

Sorry you had such a bad day. *hugs*

It all could have been handled in a civil manner, but she made sure it wasn't. My court date is in Nov. Hopefully, she will have settled down by then.

Thank you for the much needed hug!

She didn't, but I'm sure she thought of it.

The police took pictures of both cars. I had my camera, but was so upset by the woman that I didn't even think of taking pictures myself.

Just as soon as I find out what the outcome will be in November, I'll make a post. My attorney will be there with me, thank God!

I feel like I'm carrying a monkey on my back with all this stupidity!

Thank you!

I couldn't when it happened because it was around 11:00 PM, but contacted both my attorney, and the insurance company early the next morning.

I can feel my heart pounding a mile a minute, because I'm getting a stronger, and stronger feeling the money ogre is going to claim injury to the max. I have to appear before court on November 3.

Fear nothing and question her on everything. Have her produce witnesses. Put the doctor on the stand. Do that thing from the Brady Bunch where Mike Brady threw the briefcase on the floor and fooled the guy into turning his neck.

Sending your positive karma
What's your feeling about this election, I just heard on news that polls show that white men are more likely to vote because they are angry at the system. Butt, white men have always been in power, and are they angry because they must share power with people of color, women, and people of different sexuality.
Sharing some positive karma, promise to be a more frequent replier. Your Furry Freak Friend.

Re: Sending your positive karma
I can already feel that good karma oozing throughout my bones! Thanks!

I haven't been keeping up with the elections too much, because the little I've seen and heard by the Republicans make me sick.

I will be keeping up 100% with the 2012 elections for sure, because I'll again vote for Obama, who continues to be one of the loves of my life.

Hugs my furry friend!

Jeez... some people can be total @$$h01ez on the road.

I experienced something similar to your situation several years ago, against a truck whose back bumper I barely bent. His bumper did more damage to my minivan (which was later replaced). The trucker tried to extract more money from me, as he claimed that standing around to talk to the officers cost him a lot of business/money.

I won my case.

Wow! What a money hungry jerk he was! I'm so happy you won!

I wonder what this woman has up her sleeve for me!

I'm planning on making a post next week, about many more new things I was told by some citizens in Juarez; things that are being kept hush, hush before the world, for fear of retaliation, and this brave woman! She has placed herself in extreme danger, and I've been praying for her safety!

I'll be adding her to my list of heroes just as soon as I can.

Thank you so much for being interested in the happenings of the God forsaken country of Mexico, and its innocent men, women and children!

I'm trying my best not to let it get me down, but I'll have to live with this monkey on my back for 11 days - court date.

Just sharing different stuff with you here on LJ makes me forget.

Thank you Love!
