hi guys, this is just a very informal journal entry. I find that writing in English is a great way to improve my vocabulary and fluency, especially when I can get the writing corrected. That really helps! So if any of you guys can help me spot the mistakes in here, please do so.
Yeah I know I shouldn’t drive and talk on the phone at the same time, but I figured I’d be ok as long as used the Bluetooth hands-off function. I only figured.
Turns out that parking, especially in a tight spot, requires a lot of attention. So I found out! As I was keeping the conversation going (by the way not an urgent matter, not by a long shot) I hit a hydrant. It was just a slight collision, but the damage to my front bumper was considerate.
Besides painting, the car will probably need some tin-shop service as well. I was happy though, that I didn’t break the headlight. Those headlights are crazy expensive!
Fortunately, I haven’t hurt anyone, or myself, but I’ll be a few hundred dollars back. That is bad enough, but even more so now that my wife and I have just had a baby and could spend that money better.
I actually know of a place where they wouldn’t charge me a fortune to get the car fixed, but because it’s a company's car, I can only go to authorized (expensive) mechanical workshops.
I guess sometimes, we only learn things the hard way.
