Something you should do

SHARE

If you’re going to get into a car accident, as I did tonight, the best place to do it, as I did tonight, is in the street right outside your apartment. That way, even if your car is no longer drivable, as mine is not, at least you don’t have to call a tow truck. You can just push it back to the curb where you normally park it, and where it had been parked 13 seconds earlier.

(Answers to follow-up questions: No one was hurt, the airbags didn’t even deploy, I only have liability coverage for my clunker car, my car had much worse damage that the BMW that hit me, and I don’t know whose fault it will turn out to have been. I say it’s his, but he technically had the right-of-way, so who knows.)
