my wife’s car go hit on the back side because of a woman that didn’t signal, my wife lost control of the car and her car hit the highway wall and rebounded off the wall into the woman that first hit her, the woman also tried to run and for her luck a witness pulled up reaffirming that the woman was the cause of the accident, when the cops came my wife’s story and the witness story match but not the woman that crashed her she made it look like my wife was the one that hit her… thank god we had a witness because you know how cops are…. well after we get insurance we went to go talk to them and its amazing that they are only covering when she first hit her in the back and not when the car rebounded off the wall back onto her…. they said that was my wife’s fault and thats the insurance rules… WHAT KIND OF RULES ARE THAT? the road was slippery and she was going over 60mph on that highway and her car just kept slidding and its her fault she got thrown in the wall and couldn’t stop the car? we are going to talk to the other woman’s insurance tomorrow bc we just talked to our insurance…. can you guys give us some help or advice she should say? and just so you guys know if we do lose and not get enough money we are going after a lawyer to sue her because her brand new luxury lexus (car not suv) is completely nasty… back bumper flew off, passenger door is smashed and wont open or windows open, her gasket exploded and is leaking, blew a tire, her whole side of the car is scratched including rims, her sidemirror is hanging and there’s no way to even repair it and dont even get me started to what happened to the paintjob….. now you guys hear me out…. how is this justice? its clear that it was that woman’s fault and we even have a witness, the woman that hit her also tried to run but my wife somehow got control of the car and floored to cut her off and the witness pulled right behind that woman so we could box her… at first when we called the cops they said so is everything alright? we dont need to send a unit then… OMG ok no cop then no report to show to the insurance right? omg whats this world coming to? we called the cops 3-4 times b4 they came, and the fact that the insurance said it might be our fault to hit her back is out of the question…. her car was slidding because she bumped her over 60mph… what was my wife supposed to do? what is your oppinion on this people? what should we do to increase our chances of winning agaisn’t a woman that lied even though we have a witness? we are going after a lawyer if we lose and one more thing guys…. we are still paying for my wife’s car…. a good over 11,000.00 to go and we just made our last payment yesterday….
Thank you Bridgette ill do that. I also know that you need to be in control of your car at all times but the woman pushed my wife off the road so it was not her fault that the car lost control… thing is she hit the back but also the said which made her swerve… she hit at side of the back bumper which is what made it flew off. ill keep in touch with the witness thanks again brigette
Thank you BjCornett yes we are willing to bring our family lawyer which is real good… he’s not our fmaily member but he’s been our lawyer for some time. anyways yes i understand your story too… when we were at the crash scene the cops did say it wasn’t our fault so we aren’t going to get the lawyer yet… we will wait until tomorrow and if it doesn’t turn out our way we are definetely calling the lawyer and bringing up to them because our perfect brand new car is smashed making it look like something that you just bought out of the junkyard. thanks for the help we will bring the lawyer if they give us a bad deal, our insurance only has liability and they only offered 8,000 for body damage… i checked up on the parts and its way more expensive than that for lexus parts… but thats only for the body maybe they will give us more to fix the engine but what we really wanted was a new car because i think that this car’s chassis and tires (axles, shocks) are completely screwed up.
hey jackass it wasn’t our fault why are you come insult us like that when we are in a bad state huh? speed limit was 65 and she was going 60 yes bc everybody else was blowing past her at 80mph and what do you expect us to do? stay there and wait to get tailgated? grow up kid yahoo answers was made to help people not for you kids to come in and say stupid shit. as you can see you’re the only person that thinks its her fault huh? amazing how tiny your brain is… because even the cops could tell it wasn’t her fault… amazing im reporting your ass.

CEDAR HILL, Texas — The Cedar Hill baseball team, under coach Jeremy Fatheree, is on the rise.

The Longhorns have been in the playoffs in two of the past three years, and their goal is to capture the District 7-5 title this season.

“That’s the plan,” said All-State shortstop Joey Reyna.

The plan was almost shattered and their hopes and dreams were just about crushed. A week ago, the Longhorns had their baseball hearts torn out and were looking at the distinct possibility of not being able to field a team at all this season.

That’s what happens when vandals break into your fieldhouse over the holidays and steal just about every piece of equipment in every player’s locker.

“All my stuff,” pitcher Caleb Hamrick said. “I was pretty devastated.” But all is not lost in this town just to the southeast of Arlington on the other side of Joe Pool Lake. The Longhorns, despite the setback, will take the field this coming season. Practice begins on Jan. 29 and the Longhorns will be re-equipped. Many different groups and many different people have come forward to help, and the Rangers donated $10,000 to the cause from the Texas Rangers Foundation.

Second baseman Ian Kinsler and pitchers Brandon McCarthy and Tommy Hunter were at Cedar Hill High School on Monday to present the check to Fatheree and his players. Those three Rangers and some of their teammates donated their own money to help out the Cedar Hill program.

“I know these guys work hard and want to be out there,” Kinsler said. “This was not fun. The only vandalism that took place at my high school is when the rival school came over and turned on all the sprinklers.”

Said McCarthy, “I can’t imagine baseball being taken away from me in high school, especially that close to the season. That would have been miserable.”

The Rangers are not the only ones to donate. Other local establishments have helped out and so have other high school baseball programs in the area, including teams on Cedar Hill’s schedule.

“It’s a community thing,” Hunter said. “These guys needed help and we were glad to provide.”

Much help was needed. The vandals were particularly destructive and venial. Just about every piece of equipment was taken, much of it personal items belonging to the players. Bats, balls, gloves, shoes, workout gear. There are 32 players in the program and nobody was spared. As someone pointed out, the vandals knew what to take and what not to take.

“It was mainly personal items that the kids and the parents paid for, not the school district,” Fatheree said. “Things you can’t play baseball without, but things you take for granted.”

A soda machine was smashed and the money box looted. But it wasn’t just grand larceny. The place was trashed and profanity-laced graffiti was spray-painted all over the walls. Pictures of Fatheree’s family on his desk were smashed.

On one glass window in the coaches office, spray-painted in big letters was “Ha Ha CH …”

Plus the profanity.

“I didn’t realize the damage until I walked in there,” Reyna said. “I was in shock. This means a lot for the Rangers to help us out. It feels great. It makes the situation a lot better.”

The losses ran into the tens of thousands of dollars and work has not begun to repair the damage. On a bright Monday afternoon, pieces of a door lock were still scattered on the sidewalk where the vandals had gained entry. There have been no arrests.

“We have a couple of leads, but nothing to nail them with,” athletic director Gina Farmer said.

“The kids were really down and almost in tears,” Fatheree said. “Some were in tears. You try to reassure them, but what could you really do? First of all, there was the fact that we couldn’t get out to practice, but also, where would the hope come from?

“There wasn’t any until the Rangers and others stepped in. That was a big blessing and a life lesson for these kids. In the future, when they see others in need, they’ll remember this and how they felt when others stepped in for them.”

What are your thoughts? What other feel good stories do you see happening this year?
I feel really bad for those kids.. I mean their rivals in our division but for someone to just come and destroy everything they worked for is just plain wrong.

so the car got smashed up a little.. in order to sell it it would have to be repaired (front end damage and the two front tires would have to be replaced). it’s like a 2000 or maybe 2001 crown vic… i wasn’t driving it, and i don’t have it, but it was supposed to be given to me not that i really was happy about it but i wanted a car and it was my grandparents’ so they were giving it to me. now my mom says that with the damage and what not i would be better off selling it for parts than fixing it and using it or selling it, and i want to buy a car anyway and i already know what i want. so if i sell the car i would put it toward getting this other car. question is, would i make more fixing it and selling the car or selling it for parts? my mom says sell it for parts but i don’t think she really knows. it still works it’s just not that attractive inside and now it’s f’ed up outside too.

A young and successful executive was traveling down a neighborhood street, going a bit too fast in his new Jaguar. He was watching for kids darting out from between parked cars and slowed down when he thought he saw something. As his car passed, no children appeared . Instead, a brick smashed into the Jag’s side door! He slammed on the brakes and backed the Jag back to the spot where the brick had been thrown. The angry driver then jumped out of the car, grabbed the nearest kid and pushed him up against
a parked car shouting, “What was that all about and who are you? Just what the heck are you doing? That’s a new car and that brick you threw is going to cost a lot of money. Why did you do it?” The young boy was apologetic. “Please, mister…please, I’m sorry but I didn’t know what else to do,” He pleaded. “I threw the brick because no one else would stop…” With tears dripping down his face and off his chin, the youth pointed to a spot just around a parked car. “It’s my brother, “he said. “He rolled off the curb and fell out of his wheelchair and I can’t lift him u p.”
Now sobbing, the boy asked the stunned executive, “Would you please help me get him back into his wheelchair? He’s hurt and he’s too heavy for me.”
Moved beyond words, the driver tried to swallow the rapidly swelling lump in his throat. He hurriedly lifted the handicapped boy back into the wheelchair, then took out a linen handkerchief and dabbed at the fresh scrapes and cuts. A quick look told him everything was going to be okay. “Thank you and may God bless you,” the grateful child told the stranger. Too shook up for words, the man simply watched the boy! push his wheelchair-bound brother down the sidewalk toward their home.
It was a long, slow walk back to the Jaguar. The damage was very noticeable, but the driver never bothered to repair the dented side door. He kept the dent there to remind him of this message: “Don’t go through life so fast that someone has to throw a brick at you to get your attention!” God whispers in our souls and speaks to our hearts. Sometimes when we don’t have time to listen, He has to throw a brick at us. It’s our choice to listen or not.

Thought for the Day:
If God had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it.
If He had a wallet, your photo would be in it.
He sends you flowers every spring.
He sends you a sunrise every morning Face it, friend – He is crazy about you!
Send this to every “beautiful person” you wish to bless.
God didn’t promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow,sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way.
Read this line very slowly and let it sink in…
If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.
NO, it is not a chain letter email, actually it came from someone in my family, and I wanted to share it with you.

that someone being my brother. last christmas he bought me an xbox 360. it was an actual gift from him. Recently we got into a big argument and he took my xbox and smashed it into the ground. so now it’s beyond repair and also had a 60$ game inside. He refuses to replace it because he thinks it belongs to him since he payed for it. He is 19 and doesn’t live with me. my parents say that it’s between me and him. so my questions are: is the xbox fully mine since it was a gift given to me from him? question 2: would taking him to court so he would legally have to pay for it actually work? The argument was over a harmless prank i did to his car. i drew funny pictures in the dirt of his window just for laughs. he took it way too seriously. thank you to anyone who answers

Last week, I had my husband’s car parked up at work and I was notified that our car was broken into. The passenger side window was smashed and the thief took our GPS unit. The repair for the window cost 240 and the unit itself would be about 500. We tried claiming it with our insurance company but it wont meet our deductible. I am trying to get my company to pay for the damages and they say they aren’t responsible. They told us to fight with the building owners who said its my companies responsibility. Our office has no cameras in the parking lot. My husband wants to file a lawsuit because someone owes us the 740.00. Who is responsible? Any help would be great
The company has had prior break ins as well. maybe about 6 of them since I started working there. I was always told they had cameras but they have nothing. Makes you feel real safe, whats it going to take, having someone attacked in the parking lot to install cameras?

Your Open QuestionShow me another »
Is it OCD, Anxiety, or bipolar?
I am constant worry. I mainly worry about things like earth quakes. “Did you feel that?” – “Did you hear that?”. The building at my work makes the weirdest creeking sound when a truck drives by or the wind is strong. I know I am not hearning things because my co-workers hear it too. They just are just not creeped out about it like I am.
I also have two boys. One is 7 and the other is 2. I am in constant worry that someone is going to take them, break into our house, we are going to have some type of natural disaster and they are going to be hurt, or killed, or emotionally scarred for life.
Sometimes when I am in the shower (and I’ve gotten alot better about this) I hear a bang, smash or one of them crying when they are really not). This only occurs when I know I cant hear them.
Recently the light bulb went out in the refridgerator and my husband told me about it. The next day when I went to the refridg. I swore that the refridge wasn’t cold anymore. I thought it was broken, so I called a repair guy and Sears. My husband came home and said it was fine.

Oh I am in constant worry about my electical outlets. I worry that furniture or curtains or anything is too close to them and we will have a fire.

I use to wash my hand obsessively but it was only because I smoke cigarettes and I hated the smell. I dont smoke hardly as much so I dont wash my hands as much.

Oh and I have bad thoughts. This is the major things that bugs me. When I am driving in the car and I am about to go through an intersection I get super tense thinking that someone is going to run the red light and t-bone me. I picture when we are going over a bridge or freeway overpass that it’s going to break apart, or the “Big One” is going to happen the moment we are on it.

I also have thoughts after I get in an arguement with my husband that maybe he might kill us when we sleep.. only because I see all those fathers killing their families then killing themselves on the news lately.

Oh and I did go to my primary doctor by the way – though he would referr me out. However I didn’t know he does these mental health recovery classes and knows more about mental health then I ever imagined. He says that I need to retrain my brain. He prescribed me 50mg of Zoloft as I told him that I was on it many years ago for Post partum depression. It’s been 2 weeks & 4 days since being back on it.
The awful side effects are finally gone but I dont feel much of a difference in being anxious. I still worry. Should I give it more time?

Ok, before I start I don’t want to hear anything about “I’m not going to help you commit insurance fraud!” If you feel that way then just skip over this question, please!
Ok, i have a dell that the warranty is about to run out on, it’s starting to get a bit old, so I decided that on the last month of my warranty I would add complete care…(Accidental Coverage) So I can have an “accident” and depending on how bad of an “accident” they would replace it with a newer model or just repair the existing old one that I have now. I obviously want a new comptuer. I have already told them that as I was getting out of the bathtub it fell from a high shelf while plugged in. and they said they will have a box sent to my address to ship my computer back to their facility the question here is will that warrant a new comp. or can they just replace the bad parts and send it back, or should I smash it some saying it happened on the fall? I really don’t think they investigate every claim. I think that I should smash it a bit just to make sure I get a newer and better computer, what do you guys think?

so the other day someone smashes into my car and totals it in the middle of the night and just drives off. so now since my car was so old it doesn’t make any sense to try and repair the damages. my father lives in texas, i love in new york with my mom and step father. so after trying and trying to get my dad to cosign and trying to get my stepdad to cosign we have finally reached a semi agreement. there is a toyota corolla that is 10,000 and my dad would drop a 2,000 dollar down payment, my stepdad would cosign and i would make the $160 monthly payments. i work at target so i dont make all that much each month but i do need a car. but my dad still thinks i should get something like 4,000 and pay it off in cash and not worry about a monthly payment, which is smart because i will be going off to school soon and im pretty sure it will be hard to work and go to school. but then again i think that it would be good because its a good car and if i get a 4,000 car it will be more than likely a peice of junk and will cost me alot of money in repairs and stuff. i just have no idea what to do
