Monday Musings-March 1, 2010

Dear Mr. or Ms. Fender Bender,

Oh, gee. I am so sorry that my left rear fender got in the way of your hasty exit from the church parking lot last Thursday evening. I am also terribly contrite that, in your obvious hurry, you could not stop, leave a note, or come find me...it's not like I was one of the very few people meeting in the Family Center that night. Despite all of this I am really happy that you have such conviction in your "Christianity" that you did not feel the need to "do the right thing". With that said, I am confident that you shall "reap what you sow".

So very disappointed in my fellow Catholic,

Owner of the dreadfully dented Toyota Rav 4

Dear Daisy,

No, you cannot have my pizza crust. It is mine, and mine alone! I don't care that it's "tradition" for you to be served the uneaten crusts. I'm hungry! Don't give me that look. I said NO!

Aw, you're just too cute. Okay...here you go, but just this once.

Captivated by your charm,

Mama 5th

Dear Respiratory Barb,

Have I told you how much I enjoy working with you? What a team we make! Despite how busy things get we seem to always have each other's back and are able to get things done, and then some! We're quite the team!  Until next time....

Your grateful colleague,

Respiratory Polly

Dear Blogging Friends,

I am still recuperating from a busy 3 days at work and the ending stages of my sinus/ear infection. I feel the strong desire to go back to bed to get just one more hour (or two) of sleep. Take care and may the blogosphere treat you well this day! Write on!

Bloggingly yours,

Ms. 5th

That sucks about your car! Why do people do that??

Mumsy said...

How can someone that goes to church hit and run like that?

Take care and rest!

Julie Schuler said...

No way! In a church parking lot! Oh snap! That's a big pile of sin, right there. I hope they go to confession on Sunday.

Jephy's Mom said...

Hi Polly. Let me first say that I would be really upset about the fender too. That's a nasty way to leave someone's car. I just want to point out, however, that I have heard that church is a hospital for sinners and not a rest home for saints. So your fellow church member is in a good place for healing.

Brian Miller said...

glad to hear you are at the end of that sinus infection...cant believe someone did that in the church parking lot. thats just wrong.

Willoughby said...

Of all places to "dent and run", a church parking lot? I have no doubt they will reap what they sow!

I would've given Daisy the crust, too! I could never say no to those eyes!

I hope you're sinus/ear infection is getting better. Get some rest!

Thanks for the shoutout!

FRANNIE said...

Stopping by from SITS:)!

I can't believe someone didn't leave you a note! How rude.

Hope you're feeling better.

Purple Flowers said...

I'm sure that other car has scrapes and dents on it.

Hope you're feeling better soon!

L.B. said...

I would be through the roof if I walked out to see damage to my car. Grrrr.... I've had a lot of issues with cars and such so I tend to be more sensitive to them. But leaving a car that way after hitting them, man, that's just chicken-bleep.

"And so our stories go..." said...

Maybe they didn't know?! I doubt it, though. I would be so angry. Sorry.

Dearest Polly,

I hope you are getting better
from your ear/sinus infection.

Sorry to hear that about your car.
If you know who it is,
LETS US PRAY!
I am so bad , I know, sorry.

You take care of yourself now, Polly.

hugs

Weezer said...

Oh, NO! Is this the new car? The one you got after Mr.'s accident?
That's such a bummer. I love Jephy's Mom's comment about church being a hospital for sinners.

I was going to ask how you're feeling. That's been a terrible experience for you. I'm glad to hear that things are better. Sounds like you still need lots of rest. Go for it. That's what I've been doing with my headaches lately.

thrasherswife said...

I LOVE how you do these notes! I might have to "steal" the idea sometime. And the car... oh my... at church none the less... oh my my.... Hope you are feeling 100% very soon!

MJ said...

Dear Daisy, your momma won't even share the crust with me! so what makes you think she will with you?? LOL (yes I know I would get the whole piece)

It is co-workers like Barb that truly make a department run like a well-oiled machine. I wish MORE people would understand that it is a department is a TEAM.

BBOOOOOOO to still not feeling well & the hit & run. Prayers for you.

Kimberly said...

Still not at 100%?

It is amazing how some people just go back to their "same ol ways" as soon as they are in their private bubble with wheels (car). We just prayed together people!

I hope the person comes forward.

Ms Bibi said...

Oh, no. Your poor car. What a nasty person to do that.It's not like it is a small tiny scratch they missed. I hope you'll find who did it.

Tattoos and Teething Rings said...

The fact that the fender bender was in the church lot just rubs salt in the wound, doesn't it? Some people!

Betty Manousos:cutand-dry.blogspot.com said...

Polly, I am sorry about your car. that is too nasty!

blueviolet said...

That was NOT just a gentle bump to your fender. Wow!!! I'm sorry that happened. Oh, I would have caved with the pizza crust too. ;)

ChristineM said...

Martha wants to know where HER pizza crust is! :) She'd be willing to track down Hit & Run Driver for you...

(Don't beleive her...she'll say anything for pizza crust)

That really STINKS! And that is no minor dent either!

Erin said...

Polly--
I am so sorry about your car! That SUCKS!

I felt so badly when I hit that woman's Jeep last week, but hers was only scuffed up---not big gashes/dents remotely like yours.

I was hysterical. I was apologetic. I wrote all my info down for her. SHe was still so mean to me (when my car was the one that sustained the most damage, but not excusing what I did). I would never have just left after doing something like that. OMG.

That really bites. I am so sorry.

Chicago Mom said...

Glad you are feeling better and finally have a chance to rest.
We don't have a "Daisy" but our neighbors dogs are always getting treats from us.
I can't believe someone would dent your car so badly and not leave a note! That is way beyond a tiny door ding. Thank goodness for insurance.

otin said...

The saddest part about the car incident was that it occurred at a church function. people need to have a little class!

Cynthia@RunningWithLetters said...

Very sorry about your car :(

Glad to see your note appreciating your co-worker. Too often, blessings like that go unnoticed.

AJ said...

I bet they skip church until they get their dent fixed! Geez!

:) Hope you feel 100% better soon!

Holly said...

That is a nasty dent. We had a hit and run on our car...I never even got it fixed, but a good Samaritan left me a note and I called the police on principal alone...your dent is way worse...ours was just scratches. Take care of yourself!

Corrie Howe said...

Wow! It's not like someone can claim that they didn't realize they bumped your car. That's pretty significant.

I've missed seeing you in the blogshere, not that I'm doing a good job keeping up with everyone.

CRAZYMOM said...

oh gee! Let's hope Mr. Fenderbender was just someone cutting through the parking lot...or something. :(

Hope you feel better soon.

Tracy said...

We often comment on how sad it is that so many "lose their religion" in the horrible traffic of trying to get out of our church parking lot (our church is big, with 4 services, there are 1,000's of cars being shuffled in and out).

Another thing that drives me nuts, in order to get into one section of our parking lot "legally", you have to go down and turn around. Instead, so many choose just to ignor the "no left turn" sign and make an illegal turn to get their parking spot. gggrrrrrr

I just love it when you write letters! They never fail to make me smile- and I needed one of those right now!
