...well, not everyone, just anybody coming over the bridge around 5:45 tonight.  And, really, I don't owe you an apology...the ambulance driver that ran into the back of my Malibu does!  Yes, I was sitting at the red light about 4 cars back from the light (talking on the phone to TCW - but no one needs to know that).  The ambulance driver said he thought he saw me going and just plowed into the back of me.  It jarred me so hard, I thought someone had plowed into the back of him and I had plowed into the back of the car in front of me.  But apparently I didn't touch the car in front, because they just pulled off when the light changed. 

He got out and apologized over and over.  I actually felt sorry for him.  I really felt sorry for his transport patient.  After the popo got there we moved over into the Holiday Inn parking lot.  My statement was to the point - "I was stopped at the red light after crossing the Tennessee River bridge, and an ambulance ran into the back of me." 

The EMT supervisor who arrived soon after told Scott that another ambulance was coming to get his transport " 'cause we got to take a little trip to the hospital."  Poor fellow, I guess he was going to have to pee in a cup.

My car is fine, just need a new bumper...but I want one of those fancy bumpers!  You know, the one that comes with 4 new tires!

Just kidding.
