I got into a minor car accident on Sunday. An older driver pulled out even though the traffic light was green on my side. He said he was "taking a right on red" and seemed totally out of it. There wasn't much damage so I (stupidly) didn't call the police to the scene. The other driver kept saying he would be in "big trouble" if the damage was over $500. My mother was with me and we went to the police station to file a report. Given the circumstances the police checked up on the other driver. The other driver then came over to our house that evening. (I moved back home a few months ago.) He wasn't threatening, but asked that we call him before we finish filing a claim. My brother took care of it, or so we thought. Our phone # is unlisted and we gave him a cell phone # when he asked (yes it does work). He's now calling the police asking if they heard how we're settling this! The police came to the house today to let my mother know. When he came over Sunday, besides the thought of letting the dogs loose I thought about a restraining order. The police are considering the same thing for them if he keeps doing this. Thankfully he doesn't know where I work but I worry about him circling the neigborhood and harrasing my family. Why do I attract the weirdos into my life?
