car troubles

Hopefully this fills the freak accident quota for a while.

Short version: latch on hood broken, likely in the process
of getting an oil change, but not apparently entirely so.
Except it was, and having the hood smash into windshield
on the causeway is fucking terrifying.

Fortunately for me the causeway is populated with nice cops,
even some sane JPs who passed by to stop traffic for me.

The civic is at my parents house (its legal home) and I have
a borrowed land yacht until claim stuff goes through and
a rental car gets procured.

And I have beer. Hello friendly beer, let's go watch TV.

Oh my god. I would totally crap myself if that happened to me. And if I even *suspected* a mechanic had broken the latch I would hunt them down and kil them on principle.

Killing is so messy.

I prefer to keep my firearms clean.

Thanks for dropping in.
