Dear not-paying attention wahine who made a right hand turn from a red light onto the highway:
This was our new-to-us kawila which we’ve only had for two weeks.
Because you weren’t watching where you were going (were you talking on a cell phone perhaps? I mean, how in the world could you not see Nolemana’s kawila right in front of you?) you crashed right into the side of our new Hyundai!
See how the back side looked before yesterday? See how smooth and shiny and new everything looked? (Please notice past tense!)
Well, thanks to you, the rear door has to be replaced, not to mention the rear bumper and the rear hubcap. The frame and suspension will have to be checked as well.
When we bought the kawila, CarFax stated that it had never been in an accident. Well, guess what? Now it has, no thanks to you.
I am extremely grateful that Nolemana wasn’t hurt. I’m even grateful that you weren’t hurt. But I really don’t understand how you could’ve failed to see him when you made that turn. On a red light, mind you. (Yes, I know it’s legal; but only when it’s safe to do so!) He was only going 35 miles per hour in heavy traffic and you were accelerating from a red light (well, I assumed you stopped instead of running it).
It’s just a car. It’s not a life. But I do wish you’d been more careful. Next time pick an abandoned jukaluka or something.
