T - 16 to MCAT

Car accident this morning on the way to school.  Interesting because the lady in the light blue Kia Sedona, side swiped me and drove off.

Good thing I got her license plate at the stop light and called 9-1-1.

That's where things got, how shall I say this, "Interesting."

When the sheriff finally arrived, he asked what happened, took notes, got my driver's license, asked for my insurance information and registration (which I keep both electronically)...

Then things got stranger.

After some time, the two approached me and asked if I was the sole registrant of the vehicle (I am) and asked if someone else drove it (he does but infrequently, very infrequently).

They then went onto say that my driver's license had been suspended for two traffic tickets in another county... one which I have no idea where it is, or didn't until they looked it up and told me.

Apparently, my insurance was also listed as lapsed for non-payment despite that I can see the payments to Geico and the withdrawals on the bank side.

The sheriff was puzzled and asked rather, ahem, "harmlessly" ...

"Why don't you call the insurance company while we're sitting right here?"

Yeah, I know.  He was trying to make sure I was legit before giving my license back.  He was trying to confirm that I was either a legitimate good person, or some scum in an Escalade.

So, I called Geico, the sheriff stood right there.  The agent asked some questions, I gave him the information; the sheriff asked if he could speak to him directly, I handed him my phone.

A few minutes later the sheriff handed me my license and said something was rather screwed up in the state's system because apparently in December of 2015 and January of 2016 I got speeding tickets in a beach side community about 3 or 4 hours away.

Um.  I wish?  Because if I had, that'd have meant I was enjoying my life?  Not stressing?

Three hours after the idiot in the Kia Sedona HIT ME, I was free to go study for the MCAT.  It's now 4 hours past incident and I think, I may be able to finally focus.

No, I was not hurt but my Escalade has body damage where the idiot hit me, slid across the door and then drove off.

MCAT.  T-16.  Must focus.  Must prevail!
