The Incredibly Unlucky Metal Masheen

Mom was driving home from day hunting when she heard a terrible CRACK and something banged on her (brand new) metal masheen.  She was in traffic (whatever that is) so she couldn't do much but keep going.  The sun was in her eyes, so she had to be very careful.  By the time she got home, everything looked normal.

But the next day she got in it and saw a crack in the windshield.  She missed it the day before because the visor was down. So she called the insurance guys and they have to replace the windshield.  This is not as bad as it sounds because Mom has something called "comprehensive" which means she does not have to spend any green papers to fix it.  In fact, they will come to her day hunting place and fix it while Mom is hunting bits and bytes.

Mom is trying to think of this as merely "amusing" but the fact is, she's had two incredibly unlucky things happen to this new metal masheen.  The old one she traded in had nothing wrong with it and never gave her any trouble at all.

Hmmmm....

The important part is that SHE is ok. Metal masheens can get fixed.

This seems to be an actual law associated with new metal masheens. Our fambly has several good examples of the law. But we pass on our sympathies to your Mom. In our state, the insurance also waive any deductible for a cracked windshield, which we hope is the case for your Mom.

Oh dear, we hope it starts to behave itself soon.

It is always loud and scary when a rock hits the windshield hard enough to crack it! We are glad it was not a big rock and that your Mom is OK

Mebbe the new one just has to "settle in".

The car my human had before this one was kind of like that - things kept happening to it, through no fault of its own! So far so good on her new one!

Another way of looking at it Millie is to say how lucky the new metal masheen is - two incidents and they've both been very minor, haven't cost many green papers to fix, haven't resulted in anyone getting hurt and haven't caused your mom much inconvenience. I say that this is an incredibly lucky metal masheen.

Our Mommy says it's not "broken in" til you replace the windshield! She also says when it rains, it pours. Go figure.
