Was walking around my house in Toronto (Eglinton Ave, Sammy Beyo will know this) and ended up getting run over by a car! Yikes, the ajfulky no major injuries just lots of bruising and possible small issue with my hip, otherwise hot very lucky to be standing here.
Dumb woman reversed.from a stop sign and didn't see.me and just knocked me right over and I blacke Out for a moment but came right around and got onto my back with in a few seconds. People from the local bank saw and heard and ran over to help me and called ambulance but they deemed no serious issues.
Now just have to get the woman to pay for my next 3 days or so of work and I'll be back in shape for Tuesday!. Since we have a long weekend coming up in Canada !
I guess I'll need to down as many beers as possible frisky night to make this (horrible ; ) pain go away.
That's my 2 cents for the day.

hey the irish dude guess that this was your lucky day kinda, since well you didn't really got run over by a car, just a "friendly knock" and now you have an opportunity to get into some dealings with the woman behind the wheel... i don't know if money was all i would be looking for in this scenario... of course depending on the looks of the woman... maybe a bj or two as a compensation of the stress induced...

I hope you are feeling better TheIrish77, this is really not a good way to spend the day, this can happen to any of us, and you are not at fault so just bad accident for no reason from you... this makes me think that I will not go out today, wanted to buy another beer, but maybe next day
@StheP what if he hit you for real but you don't get injured badly, you would not be here with us posting and reading stuff with the money you would get for compensation and more importantly not cracking the safe etc... and that would be sad.
I know the feeling Theirish77 ten years ago I was delivering medical supplies for the ministry of health was in a rush instead of using the street intersection I took a short cut and put a huge dent in a Honda civic ambulance came took me to the hospital but luckily no damage done. I think now biggest distraction while driving is the Iphone. Best remedy is a 24 case of beer.

Phones and driving is a disaster. While they have some good fines here, using a phone while driving, no one is enforcing this. There is not a single day to go for a drive today, without some smack talking on the phone causing troubles. They should confiscate their phones for ever if you ask me, along with the car for a specific period of time. That will teach them....
