Uber Douche

So I was in a hit and run tonight. Sounds like the start of a bad joke, doesn't it? I'm perfectly fine, just a little shook up. I was in the right lane of a two lane merge and this huge pickup that was behind me apparently didn't want me to go and tapped the back left hand side of my car. Nevermind that we were all politely alternating cars in the merge and it was my turn to go. Nevermind that he was behind me and could clearly see me, and he was in my blind spot where I couldn't clearly see him. Nevermind that trucks do come equipped with brakes that would aid a driver in situations such as these. All of that would have been annoying, but fine, except that he DIDN'T STOP! He scooted past me once we got onto the highway and sped off. So I did what any self-respecting Jersey girl would have done. I followed his ass! I flashed him many times, called 911 and gave them his plate number. A cop came to my rescue soon after and wrote up a report. Hopefully they find him! My car's scratched up a bit, nothing too serious. What a lovely Monday.

Pier 1 Imports - print out this fantastic coupon for $10 off a $10 purchase, good until 7/27. Pier 1 has great stuff, but I try to avoid the store since everything is pricey. Now I'm going to see how many goodies I can get for super cheap!
  • 4 White Ramekins $1.50 each
  • Spoon Rest $5.68 - clearance price
  • Used $10/$10 coupon, total was $1.80
  • 2 Scunchi Hair Elastics $1.50 each, got back $3 RR (WYB 2) = FREE
  • 6 Scotch Bubble Mailers $0.39 each with in-circular coupon
  • Used $4 RR, total was $1.72
Repeated same transaction at another store

Target - loving all these back to school deals!
  • Trash Can $2
  • Shower Caddy $6

As I'm reading this, I'm like 'tell me she chased him!' LOL. I would have done the same thing.

I wouldn't have stopped following him until he stopped though. yea, I know in this day in age that's not the right thing to do, but people need to know not to mess with JERSEY GIRLS! :) Glad you're okay!

Reminds me of Stephanie Plum :)

Thanks for the support all! I really hope the cops are able to track him down.

spaghetti - I was plugging along Rt. 80 behind him for a while. I really don't think he even noticed I was there! The dispatcher on 911 told me to stop following him once I'd given her the plate number otherwise I probably would have gone farther.

Chitra - I had to google Stephanie Plum! I'm not sure I'm in the same league as bounty hunters but I like to think I could rise to the challenge if need be. I think we all like to think of ourselves as bad-asses huh? :)
