Once again, through no fault of my own, stereotypes were reinforced.

Last week I was in my first car accident. Korean Jerome and I were in his jeep on our way into the Emart parking garage (Korean WalMart) and the lady in front of us stopped to talk to the parking attendant. When she started again, she put her car in reverse instead of drive and backed into us. We were going uphill so she hit us decently hard and did a number the back of her Kia and busted up Jerome’s (apparently fragile) bumper.

It was pretty sad actually, her husband was away on a business trip and getting home that night so she was going to the store to buy stuff to make him a really nice dinner. Instead, he'll be coming home to dented Kia and an increase in his insurance premiums.
