    Today I rearended a ford ranger (ironic) in stop/go traffic while texting. It was at a really slow speed so my truck was totally fine, just a little scratched on the bumper and licencse plate. Same story with the ranger, I handed the guy 50 dollars cash and we called it even. I feel like a dunderhead, I will never again send a text message while behind the wheel.

    I never text behind the wheel. Sometimes I will read them when at red lights, but when it turns green I just throw my phone in my passenger seat. I never touch it when I'm moving.

    Punched mine too. Knocked it out of its mount and broke the spiral cable trying to put it back together, disabling the horn and airbag completely. Luckily I got my spiral cable recall notice a few weeks later and was covered. Working on staying calm these days.

    nothing too bad. probably drifting in a parking lot at 1am after a movie. parking lat hod a 1” or so of water. it had been raining steadily for 3 or 4 days.

    I have had a dream about crashing atvs and stuff and it never fails i crash in a few days or a week or 2 later. I have had a bad dream about getting hit in the taco and being in the hospital for 4 days and truck was totaled. I ended up getting a new taco DCSB TRD off road in MGM, luckily it has not come true yet(knock on wood)
