what happens when the car you rented for work somewhat violently meets road debris (and by violently, I'm saying that I was probably about 2 feet from death but I am trying not to think about that). And the grill of the car is kind of dragging and there's a big dent in the drivers door? I'm just asking hypothetically, because that definitely did not happen to me. But I did get an answer to the question "what would happen if the car in front of you drove over a truck tire tread in the road and popped it up and it hits the front of your car and goes under?" And then you think "crap, if that flew up a little higher it would have come though the windshield and messed up my hair".

Anyway, I have to figure out how to get this covered through our rental insurance at work. I mean "allegedly".

And mom, stop freaking out.
