Uta’s Diary

The day after. After what? Well, on the way home yesterday we had a little incident. Luckily nobody got hurt. There is only a little bit of damage on two cars, ours and someone else’s.

I the meantime Peter found the insurance papers for our car on the internet! He reckons he could copy them and install them on his phone so he could look them up anytime.

This reminded me how flustered and helpless I felt yesterday when Peter went looking through all the papers in the glovebox of the car and couldn’t find the insurance papers. I felt awful not being able to help him in any way while the nice very polite lady from the other car was left standing in the hot afternoon sun.

    1. Come to think of it, Gerard, it was not necessary at all to dig out insurance papers to show them to the other car driver. We should have known this. I just sat there in the front of the car not knowing what to say or do, thinking it is going to work our all right in the end. If only we did not have to cope with this oppressive heat at the same time!

  1. So sorry about that – but isn’t it amazing what smart phones can be used for? It far exceeds anything we dreamed of as children in our futuristic science fiction comics!

  2. Right, Carolyn, it seems we do depend very much on the internet a lot of the time. In this case they had really to take only a note of the time of the collision of the two cars as well as the car registration numbers and the names of the drivers. Yet the first thing the lady asked Peter was: ‘Are you all right?’ I thought this was very decent of her. 🙂 She said she was going to ring the NRMA straight away. Peter happens to be in the NRMA too. So they’ll work it out who has to pay for the damage on the two cars. 🙂
    Hugs, Uta

  3. Oh thank goodness all went not too bad . Good idea of Pete’s downloading the papers.
    Sounded like a very caring lady .
    Sending good wishes to you both

    1. Thanks for your good wishes, Sheila. Actually we went yesterday to a branch office of th NRMA. They were very helpful. Peter accepted that he was at fault and paid for part of the damage on the other car. If the damage turns out to be greater than what Peter has paid for, then the NRMA insurance comes up for the rest of the bill. Our car is slightly damaged but still drivable. So we are not in a hurry to get it fixed.
      Yesterday we had 39C. The NRMA branch office was in a cool shopping centre. So we spent quite some time in that shopping centre during the hottest part of the day. There is a very good fresh food place there where we bought some excellent fruit. When we drove home later in the afternoon some gusty wind came up and the temperature dropped quickly by nearly twenty degrees!
      Good wishes to you too, dear Sheila. 🙂
      Hugs from Uta and Peter 🙂
