I forgot to mention this in the previous entry..|
Yesterday, after I got into work, Gilbert pulled me aside so we could talk about the car (accident) somemore.
From what I hear, it's totalled... Smashed up to the wheels, in a V-shape? The towing company says its not fixable, but whether it is or not, I am sooo not fixing it. x_x; He gave me two options -- either pay the towing charges (to bring it back here, or take it somewhere in West Palm Beach to "fix" it), or let it languish there until June, when they'll auction it off. I'm liking that second option better, to be honest. Either way, Gilbert still expects me to pay off the rest of the car, $2000-3000.
The thing is, most of the deal was only verbal. The only "paper" I signed was a note granting me permission to drive the car. I was driving under his tags, etc. I believe he had insurance on it, and if he did, it was only PIP, not full insurance. So, legally from what I hear, I am not responsible for paying the car off.
I feel bad though.. He trusted me. Then again, it's not like I MEANT to get into that car accident, but still.. I almost feel like my job would be in jeopardy if I didn't pay him.
What a fucking waste of $500 (the down payment), just to wreck the car after only 1 1/2 weeks. x_x;
