Wow, today was like the first day of school all over again…nerve-wracking but exciting…but it was an AWESOME day! All I will say is that the people I’m working with are AMAZING, SUPPORTIVE and want to HELP me anyway that they can. There were 2 others that started with me today.. and I share and office with one of them…and I really think that this is going to be awesome!
Leaving work I went to apply for taking over the ‘sublet’ of apartment from exhibit B! I signed my life away on the application… left the deposit. Then left that place… I was travelling over the “Main St. Bridge” on rush hour… was alright… I got to the middle of the bridge and traffic was stopped… so I stopped. Apparently, the little old lady behind me didn’t seem to stop until she hit my back bumper. I seriously was like “What the HECK?!” I had a bit of a panic… I’ve never been involved in an accident with another car… my neck hurt a lot… and wasn’t sure what I was suppose to do. I ended up texting a friend. They walked me through all the information I had to get. I moved off the bridge to a parking lot. Got the info from the little old lady–they left.. and I sat in my car shaking! Called that friend, and ended up talking for like 45mins until traffic had slowed down a bit.. and I was calm enough to drive again!
(Did I mention it was a rental? and that there was HEAPS of paperwork that had to be filled out!?…oh that made it even more exciting…)
Lesson learned today… becareful when stopping because apparently some drivers don’t stop…here in Winnipeg.
