  • OT My unfortunate auto accident....a donkey

    Not to derail Wes's thread.

    There I was, driving home with my pizza and wings for the wife and I a couple of Saturdays ago, and there it was, a 350 lb donkey in the middle of my lane.
    Unfortunately, he did not make it, and that was sad.
    Air bag deployed. Their insurance totaled my little Ranger.

        So you are saying someone had liability insurance on their donkey?

          Sounds like he saved both your lives... he's a hero.

              What are you doing with the truck?

                They totaled the truck because it would take more to fix than the value. I hit him dead center (no pun intended) and the frame horns bent inward and upward. That and the airbag needing to be replaced sent it over the edge.
                The owner's home owner insurance covered it and my chiropractic visits for my neck. That was my only personal damage.
                My wife was not in the truck.

                      If you don't know it most probably means you've already been gotten ----------

                      All's im saying is i think you owe him a road side memorial, you know something to remember him by when your on the way to the market to pick up some fresh kale and tofu

                      just trying to make light of it - seriously would suck to hit one and have to watch it die, these weapons we drive - always having to try and remind myself of that.

                        Good idea. They will need something to dress up all those donkey burgers they will be eating for the next year.

                          Hey, just had some kale for lunch today!
                          Does that off set my other bad behavior?

                            Did the pizza and wings survive the impact?

                              Wonder how long a memorial would stay in place if you dedicated it to 'Some stubborn ass that wouldn't get out of the road' ?
