I'm just here to bitch and whine because I had the worst day ever, bar none. And yes I'm including starving children in Africa so don't even ask. 3/19/2017 will live on through the ages as the worst day ever, and it all started with a DnD game.
>Be me, 24 and only got into DnD about a year ago.
>Found a group on Meetup and started playing with them.
>Good guys, fun players, pick up game fast.
>Recently they invited me to a new game that they do on Sundays.
>Awesome, I'll be there.
>Work all week on making a new character; a cleric/wizard. (pic related)
>Today comes, leave a little early to get my sheets printed since no printer.
>Get them done at Office Depot, no problem, back on the road.
>Game is played at an American Legion Hall about 30-45 minutes away.
>Realize I'm still running early.
>These guys have been good to me, decide to do something nice back.
>Just got my tax refund; I'm gonna buy food for everyone.
>We get pizza delivered a lot during the game, time for something different.
>Find a KFC near the hall, head in that direction.
>On my way there, felt something hit my car in the road.
>'Twas a nail.
>Flat tire, pull over; crap.
>Never had a daddy growing up, raised by woman.
>Don't know how to change a tire.
>Have to call AAA; they get their surprisingly fast.
>20 minutes, not bad, day can still be salvaged.
>Manage to get the chicken and make it to the Hall in good time.
>2 minutes till game time.
>Nobody is here.
>Weird, usually I come way earlier and I'm like second or third still.
>Wait around for a bit; no one shows up.
>Get in contact with one of the guys on Meetup, turns out he had asked for a ride a while ago but no answers.
>Nobody is answering.
>Apparantly everyone but me and the DM flaked and didn't say anything about it.
>**** this. **** officially sucks, bad day now, no DnD.
>Whatever. Decide I'll go by Wally World on my way home.
>Got all my tires at Wally World a few months back, remember something about a Road Hazard coverage on them.
>The game isn't played near where I live, but I know of a Walmart nearby.
>A wild Walmart appears! One I didn't know was there; get off freeway.
>Oh wait. No tire center at this one, just garden and general store.
>Fine. Continue on to the next walmart on my way home.
>****. This one doesn't have a tire center either...
>Screw it. Not like I have any other plans today.
>The Walmart I bought the tires from is out of my way going home by half an hour, but I go there.
>SMH. Walmart is open 24/7/365 but this tire center is closed on Sunday.
>Worst day ever. Head home for good, still on crappy donut.
>I live in small town surrounded by orange groves.
>Main road through orange groves is two lanes, double yellow no pass zone because narrow road.
>Driving through there going well over the speed limit when some 'bro' flies past me going over the double yellow.
>One of those crappy old japanese cars that's been modded out to hide its crappiness; only like an inch of the ground.
>The hell bro? Did you just ******* clip me?
>Literally did, bumped my front fender when he passed me, kept going like nothing happened.
>Bad day. Pissed. Follow guy.
>Want to write down his license but having trouble keeping up.
>He gets stopped at a red light, I come up behind him just as the light changes.
>He guns it, turns left, I follow.
>O' wait. That's not a green arrow.
>This dude turned left across traffic right in front of another car, and my idiot ass followed him.
>Lady in other car so distracted by him, fails to see me.
>Sideswiped. BAM. Real hit this time.
>Nobody is hurt at least.
>Me and the other lady pulled over, douche is gone.
>I couldn't have followed if I wanted to; the hit jacked my front right tire, the donut, so it is turned at a right angle while the other is straight.
>Now it's the worst day ever.
>Exchange information with the lady; she and her husband agree that it was douche's fault.
>FML. The intersection of the accident was literally a stone's throw from my apartment.
>Try to get my car to limp home, can't. Get it across the intersection, have to park it across the street from the complex.
>Get home, call the insurance company; knowing I'm going to have to pay my deductible and my rates are going to go up.
>I got a bunch of tickets when I was 18-20 and my rates were just about to go down when all the tickets finally dropped.
>While I was going through my insurance and registration stuff, found the receipt for my tires.
>Road Hazard coverage was an extra $10 per tire and my dumbass declined it those months ago.
>**** me in the past, **** me in the present, and **** me in the future.
>At least I've got ten pounds of day-old chicken to eat.
Anyways. I'm not usually a trashman but I sort of wish I had just died in a crash or some ****. Pics related; the character sheet I had drafted up and the chicken that was still in my backseat after the accident.
