Fix The Mirror? I'll Fix Your F%&#*'n Mirror!!!!

The boys were with their father this weekend.

When they came home last night, Alec had a story for me.

He’d been hit by a car earlier in the afternoon.

Now, since he was walking and talking and I hadn’t gotten a call from their father about it, and nobody was in the hospital, I knew he was OK.

He showed me what was going to be a nasty bruise on his forearm, but otherwise, nothing broken or bleeding.

However, the more I think about it, the more I’m pissed off about the whole thing.

The boys were just leaving their father’s on their bikes. They rounded the corner onto the main road when the car hit Alec.

According to Alec (and Adam) the car came up onto the shoulder of the road, onto the gravel and into Alec’s path.

Thankfully Alec was going slow and managed to turn his bike mostly out of the way.

The impact was still enough to knock him to the ground.

The guy driving the car is in his 20’s, and Alec recognized him from his father’s neighbourhood.

And what did the guy say after Alec got up off the ground?

Not OMIGOD!

Not ARE YOU OK?

This guy says …. ‘Fix the mirror!’

And Alec, being Alec, dusts himself off and fixes the mirror.

THEN the guy asked Alec if he was OK.

Only AFTER he told him to ‘fix the mirror’.

Uh … s’cuse me? Fix the mirror? FIX THE MIRROR?

I’ll fix your F %$&#*’n mirror!!!!!!

Buttwipe just hits my kid, and his first response is ‘Fix the mirror!

Then, after a quick 'You OK?' he just left. Drove off.

As luck would have it, a passing truck happened to be going by at the same time, and stopped to see if he was OK.

Buttwipe in the car must have seen them stop, because then he came BACK and asked Alec again ‘Are you OK?’

Alec was going to say ‘Yes’ no matter what.

Now, I’m a pissed off Mama who doesn’t know what to do.

Do you bother to file a police report if you only find out your kid was hit by a car AFTER the fact?

He’s OK. No long term damage (I don’t believe). So it’s not like I’ll be pressing charges or anything.

I guess I’m just wondering if you bother to put it on record, just to HAVE it on record?

Unless, of course, I can file charges for Buddy being a Buttwipe to my kid.


I’d definitely file charges all over his ass for THAT one!!!

Fix the Mirror?


I’ll fix his F%$&*'n Mirror! And his attitude too!

What a major A-Hole! I think I would still call the cops. Do you know who the guy is? Could serve as a warning that his car belongs on the street and not on the shoulder! I'm glad Alec is ok. Holy moly you've been having a rough month so far!

WTF! Are you kidding me?

If it were my kid he had such disregard for after 'hitting him with his car', I'd report it.

I would definately report it. He should have stayed until a parent arrived on the scene.He could be charged for leaving the scene of an accident. What an idiot.

Yes - I'd call the cops as well and report it.

Thanks Bon. Yup! MAJOR A-Hole! LOL rough month? Nah, just another day in the life around here ;-)

Welcome Anonymous :-) I agree, I thought he should have at least made an offer to CALL one of his parents.

Everyone - Thanks much!

I happened to see a police car (waiting for speeders?) on the side of the road on my way home.

So, me being me, I pulled up next to him, rolled down my window and said "Got a question for ya ...'

Long story short, there's not really anything they can do.

Alec's fine. Buttwipe DID stop, if only for a second. And unfortunately, I can't file charges against someone for being an asshole to my kid.

Or, I guess that would be 'fortunately' for all the assholes out there LOL.
