The Bendering of a Fender


Friday evening after work, this was the scene
Another vehicle assaulted mine, oh how so very mean

At first I thought maybe they were offended by my Bengal’s license plate
Ah those opposing fans, how they can be so irate

The impact sent my vehicle into the one in front of mine
All three of us sat there for a second, like a fallen domino line

Luckily nobody was hurt, no worries at all there
And nobody was angry, there was nary a swear

As we all gathered ‘round to survey our car’s damaged exteriors
We were all thankful to have relatively unharmed posteriors

There was even a laugh or two shared as we waited for the police
As the minutes passed, the shock of the wreck eventually decreased

Thank goodness none of us had an outstanding warrant
Being led away in cuffs would have been so abhorrent

The guy who hit me was extremely apologetic
I told him that accidents happen – the damage was only cosmetic

I think the lesson I learned here, and will carry with me forever
Is no more driving on Friday the 13th, never ever ever

So as we all hit the road, driving away feeling generally ok
I realized that I had been needing material for a blog post anyway :-)

  1. Crap, I'm sorry! Wow, that was more than a little bump. At least no one was hurt.
    Didn't know you rhymed - good job.

  2. My cowboy hat is off to you for taking a very unpleasant situation and turning it into extremely delightful and witty poetry! Very few people would have the ability to do that. How ironic that it happened on Friday the 13th.

  3. Hello Keith,

    We love your car crash ditty and are pleased that you could be so philosophical about the whole sorry affair. Accidents like this do happen but rarely, in our experience, are those involved so amicable.

    Friday 13th passed without incident for us......but we did have fingers and toes crossed all day!

  4. Glad no one was hurt and everyone was an adult about it.
    But it's still no fun when with a car you've been hit...
    And now I'd say we've spent too much time with Pat Hatt.
    (Wonder what the cat will have to say about that!)

  5. Oh Keith I was going to say I'm so sorry instead i'm going to say gosh i love your outlook on life, gives everybody hope....and like you said gave you something to right about, gosh we need more people like you in our bruised world, God Bless You and Your loved one(s)

  7. Making the best of a bad situation is evident here. I really admire you for the way you handled this unfortunate collision. You obviously make a real good filling for a sandwich collision.

    I'm so glad you weren't hurt. I really love your positive poem and your new resolution of not driving on Friday the 13. Personally, I'm not too superstitious about Friday the13th but I say Knock on Wood a lot.
    Hugs,

  8. I'm gad no one was hurt -- or even angry.
    But I really didn't need to see this picture on the day after my daughter passed her driver's license exam! She just left on her first solo trip to the high school a few minutes ago.

    *okay -- she just texted me. She's there. Phew!*

    ReplyDelete
  9. I am not superstitious at all, but I hate Friday the 13th. You have proved my worries true. You should have punched the aggressor on the nose, no doubt preoccupied with his/her phone, but instead you took an admirable path and recognised that we all make mistakes.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Onward!!! With a great BIG smile! You have much to be thankful for! Aloha

    ReplyDelete
  11. You are a class act, Keith. Such a positive take on an unfortunate accident.

    ReplyDelete
  12. The accidents turned into a beautiful poem, enjoyed the poetry :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. That is an interesting way to find a blog post Keith:) Glad everyone was OK. B

    ReplyDelete
  14. oh so not a good friday the 13th for you...i am glad everyone was ok...that is what is important for sure....have had a few wrecks, none in a long while...

    ReplyDelete
  15. haha look at you go with the flow. Blog fodder from getting rear ended, that could sound bad if it was a little amended lol glad all are okay and pffft to Friday the 13th I say

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'm glad to hear everything is ok! I rear ended another driver once in Greece and I was so sorry! I couldn't stop apologizing.

    Hope you're having a great week!

    ReplyDelete
  17. that's a bummer. sorry that your car got wrecked. glad that you guys ok.

    ReplyDelete
  18. My goodness...you can even see the silver lining in a fender bender. Good for you.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Keith, sorry about your crash! But you made a great poem out of it! Glad you are all okay!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Well you made lemonade out of that lemon for sure. You joked about it, had post material and learned a Friday 13th lesson. But never the less, the fender benders are a horrible inconvenience. So sorry, Keith.

    ReplyDelete
  21. The accident inspired you to write a fun poem. It would've had me wondering who had what in the trunks of their cars…. :)

  22. Oh my goodness Keith...this must really have made you superstitious! I had an accident last year and got a new car...it still make me nervous to drive in the city now. Glad all is well at least with YOU.

    ReplyDelete
  23. So sorry your car was turned into a traffic sandwich but loved your clever poem and the fact that all involved were civilized and unhurt. That is how all accidents should be solved. That is how we do it here in Tiny Town Ark. Well done Keith.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Sorry about the accident, but if you're going to have an accident then these are the only kinds you need to have. You can fix this with little or no trouble.

    Have a terrific day and I'm glad everyone is okay. ☺

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh man! I'm glad you're ok though. Car accidents are the worst! :(

    ReplyDelete
  26. oh, this was great. :) you made me laugh and you made the best of a poor situation. :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Sorry about the accident :( But, nice poem. :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. oh bummer! it is a standing thing here - we never go anywhere on friday the 13th-ever

    ReplyDelete
  29. My goodness Keith, you are a poet and I didn't know it. I am so glad that all occupants of the cars are safe!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I am just glad that you are O.K., Keith.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Oh dear. Glad no one was injured. But next time you need a post idea, just ask for suggestions ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  32. thank goodness no one was hurt and that you all were amicable!

    ReplyDelete
  33. You certainly had a good attitude about your experience. It sounds like you all handled it in a respectful way. The worst thing is the inconvenience of getting all taken care of & wondering if insurance company will raise one's rates. Nice to see you write a poem!! Keep it up. Smiles.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'm glad you are okay Keith... you are right, cosmetics can be fixed, freaking out doesn't make it better. Life is too short to worry about cosmetics... you have such a great attitude ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Keith Im glad you are ok and nobody was hurt!
    And you had a great attitude Keith!
    But I knew that lol
    Take care:)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Firstly, the title. "The Bendering of a Fender". :D

    Secondly, I am really amazed that there wasn't a spat between the three drivers. Normally, out on the road, people tend to function with a heated attitude. Unfortunately, I can only attest to that because I don't think I have it in me to laugh after having the fender 'bendered'. Maybe not anger, but the scare of being scolded by parents for my reckless driving sure does the trick to incinerate any humour fro such a situation.

    But then I am happy this did not happen in your case. What an enjoyable read! :D

    ReplyDelete
  37. OMGosh the things we do for a blog post! Okay not really, just kidding. Happy you all are okay, sounds like you have the right idea and a great outlook.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Eeek! Glad you and your fellow acci-dentees are ok and your inner poet came forth.

    ReplyDelete
  39. My step-son warned us about driving on Friday the thirteenth when there was a full moon. He was right, in a short trip to the store we saw several crazy drivers. We came home and decided not to go out for dinner. The roads were not safe!

    ReplyDelete
  40. And there you have it...blogging material! LOL... All joking aside, I'm glad it was just a fender bender and nobody was seriously hurt. Yes, accidents will happen; and hopefully when they do, they're minor!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Ouch - it could have been a lot worse I guess but it does shake you up a bit. Glad you're ok.

    ReplyDelete
  42. What a great attitude! Sorry for your car, though and glad no one was hurt. Great poem you came up with!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Glad you guys are okay.....so this happened on friday the thirteenth? :-) unbelievable..
    the poem is so cool............cant help laughing :-)

    ReplyDelete
  44. Sorry to hear about your accident! I'm glad everyone was okay and polite about the whole ordeal. You did a great job telling your story in verse.

    Thanks for popping by and checking up on me. Greatly appreciated. I've been a bit busy this month but should be back on track next week. I hope. =P

    ReplyDelete
  45. so glad you are ok and handled it well. Gosh, things happen.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Very kind of you both! Glad that none were injured and I really wonder at your cool attitude to make use of it as a post. Lol

    Even the damage wasn’t worst, I guess it will cost u lot.

    ReplyDelete
  47. glad to hear it was just a cosmetic damage, I believe you should definitely get it touched up with some pink paint and unicorn stickers!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Great poem - glad you're okay!

    ReplyDelete
  49. My first car accident ever was on Halloween--so maybe there's something to scary days and driving! I was dressed like a bunny, so that was interesting... Glad it wasn't more serious, although it's always a pain to have a car in the shop. Hope you get a great rental car!

    ReplyDelete
  50. You are a poet and don't know it! Wow, your car is in bad shape, was it the worst damaged? How wonderful and civil everyone was! I hope your insurance pays and your payments don't go up. Your attitude is amazing, you have turned the whole accident into entertainment for us. I love the posterior and abhorrent part, you are quite a rhymer!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Bahahahahaha!! Great story. Great excuse, too. Hehe. Did you realize that it was also a full moon? I'm so glad everyone was cool, calm and collected and to think, even a bit of a chuckle!
    Glad you're okay. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  52. Hi Keith,

    Oh dear ! Shame this happened and glad it was not serious.
    Great poem and as you say some material for a post.
    Enjoy the week

  53. Not a good day to drive, but glad no-one was injured.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Wow, that is most civilised behaviour. Glad nobody was hurt. Cute poem!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Sorry about your car but good everyone acted like adults which isn't always the case. Liked that you just rolled it over into a cute poem.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I know they're not a living, beating heart, thing...but to have a car assaulted like that just tears at the old heart strings!!!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Oh my! Glad all was ok. Now, I can chuckle at the poem! Very good!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I am so sorry. The crunch is a sickening (and unmistakeable) noise.
    Very, very glad that the damage was only cosmetic.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I liked your poem (good rhyming) and so glad nobody was hurt.
    Nice people usually act nice ... that is good!
    Wish that has been the case when I was in a fender bender a few months ago, I encountered a not so nice person.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Nice poem from a surprising experience. I like your attitude Keith!!!

    ReplyDelete
  61. There you are, every cloud has a silver lining!

    It’s best to stay calm when such things happen; when all are reasonable people troubles are soon over.

    ReplyDelete
  62. 'As we all gathered ‘round to survey our car’s damaged exteriors
    We were all thankful to have relatively unharmed posteriors.' Hahaha!

    Don't know if I'd be writing poetry about it, but may I say ... very good! And like you say, you needed material for a blog post anyway :-)

    Oh, and glad everyone was okay!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Brilliant and funny, Keith! I am still laughing. Love the line about the outstanding warrants - too funny! Seriously, though, I am so glad you and everyone else is alright. And nobody got mad. It could have been so much worse. How weird that it happened on Friday the 13th. That would get me spooked for sure. You escaped with a warning.....(scary music in the background) Sorry for the hassle, though. Your poor car doesn't look so happy. Hope it all gets fixed soon and you have a great rental car. xo Karen

    ReplyDelete
  64. I'm glad you're all good and nice
    This type of thing can make one think twice
    Toyotas are quite sturdy too
    Mine's taken more than a few
    But health and safety come first
    It could be so much worse
    Plus it inspired you to pen this fun verse.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I've been in only 2 accidents, and both were not my fault. I was at a stop and got bumped into both times. Though thankfully minor damage.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Glad no one was hurt. If you lived in Las Vegas with our newly passed law...the police do not come to traffic accidents anymore unless there is bodily injuries. Now you have to do all the documenting yourself and go to the police station to file a report if you want to do that.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Oh nooooooo!!!! I'm sorry to hear that happened but am so happy no one was hurt! I love how positive you always are. I'm glad I stayed in that day. lol

    ReplyDelete
  68. Can I just say that was hilariously written? I'm so sorry your little car got a boo-boo, but glad to hear everyone was ok!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Hey Keith,

    Sorry to read about the unfortunate mishap, my good friend. However, if you could convince every other driver not to drive on a Friday the 13th, the roads would be clear for you, just you. Then you'd probably hit a tree that um, jumped out in front of your car.

    Look after yourself and your car. Humour and irony going hand in hand.

    Gary :)

    ReplyDelete
  70. Sorry :( . Glad everyone was okay!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Hilarious Keith! Taking it in a lighter vein for something unfortunate is a noble thing to do. Lucky thing no one got hurt! Looks like one has to be wary for the next Fri the 13th. Wonderful rhymings!

  72. Not only was it Friday the 13th, but it was a full moon! And there is the Bengal's plate ;)

    ReplyDelete
  73. All we can do is laugh, as long as no one got hurt

    ReplyDelete
  74. Glad no one was hurt! I'm sure the car can be fixed good as new. Your poetry was very entertaining too!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Glad no one was hurt. Sorry about the car though.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Yipes---and on Friday, the 13th..... Glad nobody was hurt.... It does take the wind out of your sails for awhile though, doesn't it??? We almost had a guy hit us head-on one afternoon --and we hit the ditch in order to NOT get hit... Luckily, we weren't hurt and neither was our car. BUT--it shook us up.. Things can happen in an instant!!! Scary!

    Hugs,
    Betsy

    ReplyDelete
  77. Oh, Keith! What an unfortunate happening! It is a blessing that no one was injured. Wishing you speedy repairs!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Oh that's not good. I woman hit me recently while she was on her cell phone. Luckily we both had Jeeps and they stood up to the impact.

    ReplyDelete
  79. That is a bit extreme to get something to blog about. : )
    Sorry to hear your car got hurt but glad no people were hurt.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Oh, no! I'm sorry that happened. And on Friday the 13. No wonder the date has such a bad reputation. Kudos to you for making a fun poem about it. But please come up with blog ideas some other way! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  81. Like I said on twitter, I'm glad that you are okay! And I'm glad that everyone else is, too.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Happy that you were not hurt...and happy that you got a post idea this way! :D:P

    ReplyDelete
  83. Oh damn, hate when that happens... Sorry to hear that.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I am glad not one was hurt.. I take it it was more bad luck than a cause from Friday the 13th.. Cute poem.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Hi Keith .. thank goodness it wasn't worse .. but a nuisance in the rhythm of things .. good luck with getting the car repaired .. and love the way you've written it up .. and be happy on the 13th .. cheers Hilary

    ReplyDelete
  86. oh my that's terrible and here you were saying you weren't superstitious, ugh

    ReplyDelete
  87. Sorry Keith!
    Glad no one was hurt, I've never been in such accidents.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Wow...I love your attitude about it. Glad no one was hurt, but sorry about your hind end - that looks like an expensive repair bill! I agree about Friday the 13th!

    ReplyDelete
  89. I'm still so relieved that your car gladly took it all and kept you safe! But the poor thing really does look hurt now.
    Your positivity at all times in this situation amazes me and makes me love you even more. You might not realize it, but it is very special! And the poem you made is awesome. I loved it and it made me laugh several times :)
    I love you, honey. You need to come over here - in situations like these the distance is a bit difficult to handle!

    ReplyDelete
  90. Good that you didn't take it too seriously. But it's such a darn inconvenience, isn't it? We had two parking lot accidents in one year...neither was our fault...just people in a hurry. We are afraid to park now...I always go to the corner of the lot and walk a distance to get to where I'm going. Just tooooooooooooooooo many cars on the road!!!! Not enough space for everyone. Car growth to go with the population growth.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Haha. Great poem! Not so fun experience, but we all know where you WON'T be on the next Friday the 13th.

    ReplyDelete
  92. A horrible experience - but great for your blog! Glad to hear no one was hurt.

    ReplyDelete
  93. LOL! What? But how are you supposed to get to the epic Friday the 13th party without driving? ;)

    That was clever and terribly fun. I'm so sorry about the fender bender, but way to take it in stride!

    ReplyDelete
  94. Glad to hear someone could be so poetic about that major damage to his 'Baby'. I do agree, I would never, ever, drive on Friday the 13th again after that!
    It was a beautiful full moon!

    ReplyDelete
  95. Sorry about the accident.
    Glad no one was hurt.
    You do have patience enough to write a poem about it. Thant is admirable.

    1. That said... no more driving on Friday the 13th sounds like a plan that might work. Especially when you need to go to work in which case you're entitled to a well-deserved day off. ;)

  97. I'm glad everyone is okay. Loved the poem!

    Thanks for your comment on my post. Caring for three kids is tougher than I thought, but I think I'm back now. I missed reading your posts. :) Happy Wednesday!

  98. Good to know there were no injuries and that your sense of humour is alive and well. Black Jack thanks you for the compliment (she thinks) on her ability to wear glasses a bit more successfully than you apparently do. Your blog is a fun one so I've decided to join your fan club :)

  101. Heh heh heh.......a jolly accident! You did very well to keep your cool and humour. Mind you, I wouldn't have minded seeing you on an episode of Judge Judy in a few years' time!

    ReplyDelete
  102. So glad no one was hurt, except your poor car. Someone hit and totaled my Toyota. It was a grand old car - 220,000 miles on it. But no one was hurt, and that's the important thing.

    ReplyDelete
  103. This? Was adorable. And hilarious. And reminded me of Winnie the Pooh. :)
    Loved it, and thanks for stopping to see me at Lighten Up!

  104. you said you were in the ROTC, did you head into the Army or other military? glad you are ok after this accident. hope you will get a fix up & all will be ok. or maybe you will have a rental car for a while? glad you can find the positive it all that is so great!! thank you for stopping by my blog. have a lovely day & week.

  105. My R rear bumper got "kissed" on Thursday, but is now fixed and beautiful again. My attacker was most apologetic, but no one was injured...and metal is either fixable or replaceable. Lucky us...

    ReplyDelete
  106. Oh good gracious. O.O I hope that's not too expensive to repair! Glad you're okay, too! I've been in a van when rearended by someone. Not a fun experience when sitting in the back seat. I was in high school then, and had my little Nintendo DS with me. When the other car hit us, my DS flew into the front seat to my dad. My ears rang for quite a while after that.

    On a side note, verse eight is delightful!

    ReplyDelete
  107. HAHAHAHAH what a poem! You are one quirky fellow, Keith! I would definitely like to see more poems about life's dilemmas!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  108. Ahh that sucks. At least no one was hurt. I recently hit someone hard 3 times from behind. It was 100503% my fault. My moms foot broke from the impact. The guy in front was fine. Thankfully it was nothing worse. There was little to damage at all and the guy told me just to go home. Lovely poem you wrote.

    ReplyDelete
  109. Prayers to god. Happy to hear no one got hurt.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Keith, you've been one of those people who've made me realise the need for optimism.
    Even in such a situation, I can imagine you keeping your cool and reacting with patience.
    Thank you for being so crucial. So patient.
    The way you make things happy is really inspiring.
    I hope everything gets repaired and you're back to yourself.

    And yes, thanks for awaiting! I can't imagine leaving this place behind.
    It has taught me more than what I could ever absorb from around.
    Thanks to bloggers like you, my world is a happy place :)

    Most of us would have been really annoyed or upset...
    So glad no one was hurt though. After all, that is the important thing...:)

  125. super poem, we've been hit from behind a few times (once one fellow was distracted by a beautiful young woman on her bike in the round about), minor things and my hubby and the errant drivers end up in the same sort of exchange, much better that way.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Keith...what genius to make a humorous poem out of a rather stressful experience! I am sorry this happened, and thank goodness no one was hurt.
    Keep writing poetry... you're good! :)

    ReplyDelete
  127. I am happy to read that nobody got hurt ~ The funny thing is that someone also swiped our front fender and now we have to have it fixed ~ Can I say that I am admiring the couplets (2 lined verses) specially with the rhyming words ~ Accidents happen but thankfully nobody got hurt ~ Have a good week Keith and thanks for your lovely comments on my blogs ~

    ReplyDelete
  128. awww sorry about that---great poem though :)

    ReplyDelete
  129. awwww sorry about the damage to your car but isn't it wonderful to interact with people who respond appropriately!? It is an accident, not an on purpose!! I hope your damage is covered by your insurance!!

    ReplyDelete
  130. Ha!! Oh that Friday the 13th! Glad you're ok! Fun poem :-)

    ReplyDelete
  131. Oh, this is such a delightful poem, Keith, and I'm so sorry you got into a fender bender. It sounds like all involved were very pleasant, and that doesn't happen all the time. I'm so glad that you're ok. I love the line, "I told him that accidents happen - the damage was only cosmetic." Awesome.......... If only more people thought like that.

  132. Keith,

    At least it was only a fender, and nothing worse. Somehow, we are almost ready to expect a mishap on that date. Ready to assert the blame on the Friday in question!!
    It did have an 'up side,' in that it provided an alternative Blog post!!

  133. A true blogger is one who can turn an accident into a fun blog post. And do it with a rhyme. Guess Pat Hatt has been influencing you a little too much lately?

    ReplyDelete
  134. Oh, what a delight! The poem rather than the event. What excellent rhyming; and what delicious comedy you made of the occurrence — and moral reflections too! I just love it.

    ReplyDelete
  135. What stands out is the attitude of all concerned. Thank goodness there was no anger; no rage expressed when in this world today there is so much.

    I'm glad no one was injured...and good graces were shown by all.

  136. You're a poet too!!
    Happy all went well and you left unscathed.

  139. wow, that is very creative!! You're pretty good with the waxing poetic.
    you're right accidents do happen...but glad to hear everyone was okay, and this was a fender bender only.

  140. That's great that everyone was cool. I had a fender bender when I was yielding for traffic to go by. Someone ran into me. I was pregnant with Isaak at the time; therefore I was super shaky. Just nervous. The guy claimed to have insurance. He had the papers to prove it. Then later I found out that he wasn't paying on that insurance. That was an expensive time in my life.

    Now when it was my turn (not trying to) get in an accident everything was smooth. We both have insurance, and it just went a heck of a lot better than the first accident.

  144. Gah, not not not the kind of material you want for a blog post. I hope insurance clears that right up and makes it look new again for you. And I'm really glad no one was hurt.
