    Arguing with your Boss is like wrestling with a pig in
    mud.
    After a while you realize that while you are getting
    dirty, the pig is actually enjoying it.

    It is not exactly cheating, I prefer to consider it
    creative problem solving.

    Ah crap... we're going to get a safety bulletin next month now about careful driving, and prolly have to install a full roll cage for PPE now huh!

    Seriously tho, glad you're ok!

    How bad did it tear the stuff up in the back of the van?

    Went to hospital yesterday because I declined to go then didn't feel that bad at the time but everyone said to go , so I did yea got a few bruised ribs left side took xrays don't look like anything broken , they seem to be more concerned with developing water in lungs so they want me to take deep breaths at least 10 times a day , and yea I have to go take piss test early tommarow morning , yea next thing they wil want us to wear is neck harness like they do in NASCAR , like I said she wasn't there and then she was there brakes what brakes , prepare for ramming speed. Shelving inside is all torn up from inside steal and front cage is bowed like an arrow , I don't think there fixin this one , and got ticket for careless driving to.

    i can see forward facing cameras being the next safety device...like Chevy's recorder that is under the driver seat. Another big brother thing but could have saved u a ticket...u are going to need a new hubcap, that one looks cracked. Glad to hear u are ok.

    Usually when a service van takes a hit 1/2 that hard it's totaled, the shelves will pull the interior structure apart from the exterior sides of the van and they will total it because it costs too much for the interior repairs. Look inside where the shelves mount, see if the structure is torn apart.

    That thing looks totaled anyway!

    I am in the shop Jalopy for the next few weeks myself. I hit a deer Last Monday on my way in to work early AM. 55 MPH. The damn thing jumped right out in front of me. I had not time to react. The insurance is contemplating total loss as we speak. The Chevy Van smashed in like an accordion. I know they make them to do this now, but my first thoughts were, what a cheaply made van. I hope they make up their mind quick. This POS I am driving sucks.
