before you even know what's happening, it's over. some gd pebble flies onto your windshield, causing a painful star-shaped crack.
i'm not sure why i'm choosing to document this. it still angers me. a lot. one less-than-split second later, or a different lane, or traveling one mpg faster or slower, and who knows? pebble averted perhaps.
of course i can put it in perspective, but sometimes the annoyance of contacting insurance agents, dealing with autoglass repair people and just plain missing your undamaged windshield can be a real drag.
