It was rather like a heavy-weight world champion versus an amateur light-weight - a Dodge Ram pickup versus our 2007 Subaru Impreza. 

Rhonda was stopped at a right-turn-yield type of intersection waiting for the Ram to proceed.  For unknown reasons, the fellow put it into reverse and roared backward while Rhonda honked in vain.  He said that he did not see anything in his rear view camera and there was no signal that there was anything behind him - whatever happened to actually looking??!!  Duh.....  Result - barely a scape in the rear bumper of the Ram and a totaled Impreza.  And a serious hit to the pocketbook for a new car.  Fortunately Rhonda was not injured physically but did suffer some emotional trauma, and naturally has some concerns when we pull up behind a Big-Ass Truck.

New Impreza, although we would have been driving the old one for some time to come.

Sorry about your car, glad to hear Rhonda was not hurt. I knew this sort of thing would happen if you legalized dope. Speaking of which, Deborah just ordered some medical marijuana for one of our dogs!

Yup, it's the MJ for sure! And medical MJ for the dog? That's about as good of a line as "I have a friend....." :-)
