Coincidentally, at the same time I was buying Cora, BabyGirl was buying her car.
She called me the night Hubby and I were sleeping on our decision to buy Cora. She was so excited because for the past few weeks she was out of a car because her car she was in had problems. She had put a lot of money into it and the mechanic told her this time it was time to get a new car.
Her boyfriend and she decided to get a new one and he helped her buying it.
She was so excited. I was more excited for her than I was for me. It was her very first new car.
Layla's boyfriend and her step-brother-in-law got her a good deal on a 2014 Kia Yaris. It's name is Pearl.
About two days later, she called me and said, "I just can't have nice things" Her voice wavered. I knew something was wrong.
She was on stopped a busy street in the turning lane when a man rear-ended her. She said she saw him swerving attempting to avoid her but he failed. He claims he had been having trouble with his brakes and he couldn't stop.
My heart hurts for her. Unfortunately, it wasn't total so she has to get it fixed. It'll take about two weeks for have it repaired. She is using her boyfriend's family member's car in the meantime.
Someone told me she was the fourth person she knew who got in a wreck with a brand new car.
I was furious. If this fool would have taken care of his brakes this may not have happened.
Yes, it's only a car and thankfully, no one was hurt but it could have totally avoided because of a person's negligence.
