I know, I know…but this is my format and my vehicle for getting my opinion out, so I will use it when I can.
Take one second, just one second, and imagine that you were the driver of this car. Imagine also that your 69 year old mother was in said car with you, you look in your rear view mirror just in time to see the person who is flying up behind you looking up from their phone. The next thing you know, you are in a daze, you don’t know if you are injured, you don’t know if your mother is alive or dead, you can’t breathe because all 8 of the airbags have gone off and the dust in the air has caused you to have an asthma attack. There is blood and you don’t know where it has come from. You can’t open the door to your car to get out, you don’t even know how many vehicles were involved in this accident.
Then after the irresponsible driver has driven away, and the police have left, you have to wait on the side of the road for a tow truck for two hours. Your life is put on hold for monthsbecause you are in pain and can’t do the normal things you have been doing, like continuing on your weight loss journey and only being able to do modified workouts for months because of the severe pain in your shoulder. You go to the doctor, you go to the chiropractor, you go to physical therapy only to be told 4 months after the accident that you are probably going to have residual pain the rest of your life. Nearly ten months after the accident, you are still not back to where you were physically and you are still terrified of being on the freeway, and avoid driving it as much as possible. Not just as a driver, but you also freak out as a passenger. You have had to pull over in tears just to get home from work if traffic has been too bad.
Good hands? Not at all – those “good hands” might as well give you a black eye, and walk away laughing. Those good hands are there to slap you across the face and look out for one thing, Allstate’s bottom line.
