An ABCD accent

An ABCD(american born confused desi) accent is not obviously an Indian accent but what is surprising me is it isnt an American accent too!

Have you noticed that?

No Good Deed goes Unpunished

I didnt know that as I stopped car for the red light at the intersection of Benton and Pomeroy. I didnt know as I felt a strong jerk and got out of the car to inspect the damages to the bumper. Seeing no damage except an impression of  a small circle and the 16 yr old driver with fear written all over his face apologizing profusely blaming the brakes, I, still clutching my back with pain, told him I will not pursue it with insurance unless my backache continues. After exchanging the required info, I got into the car. 

The pain was gone the next day.

Good deed, right?

Except the pain boomeranged big time after good 4 days. I confused it with everything from PMS( this was much more severe than that), gas(??? again much more severe), my weight gain( but 2 lbs can do this?), even the chair @ work to any one who stopped by my cube. Finally after 3 days, I visited the doctor who tells me some thing went wrong with muscles when my body was recovering from the accident. 

With or without the medicines, it will take 3 or 4 weeks to recover. 

And then I read the title line.

PS: Dear God,  I cant have this repeating on me. My car could have a bumper, side door, heck you even damaged the parked rental car I got last time when my car was recovering. I only have one back, and there is no renting another one in place of me.. atleast to me.

PS1: but again why i am being rear ended when the traffic light is red and my car was stopped for good minute or two. It is not as if the light just turned red.. i mean that wouldnt be ok, but atleast would be understandable. How could you not hold on to your brakes?
