Every time I see your DIS name I STILL think of Donutgate Sue.

Gee where is al the drama for everyone in that.
Many of us have not had positive interactions with HR, so our cynicism level runs high.

It sounds like a reasonable HR response at this point.

And keep going to work. You don't want them to have any reason to come back at you later, like for attendance.
I'm coming in late to this conversation... (I can't sleep) but I wanted to add that you should get copies of both videos... when she hit you, and when she confronted you... just in case they end up missing.

Still do not have my car back! The frame was bent under the back passenger tire and the insurance wants to repair the frame. There are only certain places that can repair a frame so it has to be looked at elsewhere. My husband wants a new car he said it will never be right so they have been fighting it out. The doctor has not been at work. I don't know the real reason, but rumor has it she has to take a drug test and may be in rehab. I have no idea if that is true, I am too afraid to talk about it at work so I only know what I have overheard.

Why does he feel like that? I don't think they are going to buy you a new car

Wow. You're definitely smart to keep out of it. It could end very badly for her, and you don't want to be part of the fall out.

I would want a new car as well. My MIL wrecked her 6 week old SUV and bent the frame. Insurance decided to just repair instead of totaling, but that car has given her nothing but trouble ever since.

Because the frame is bent. It is a major part of he safety system of the car. I had a new SUV, I don't want a broken one back.

Yes, exactly, you deserve a new car because that's what you had! You tell your hubby, press on, fight on!!

Because a vehicle that has been extensively damaged cannot always be repaired back to what it was, and may not be as safe to drive.

EXACTLY! I had a co-worker who was in a nasty accident only months after buying a new car. Insurance decided to fix it. I don't remember how many times that car was back in the shop for repairs to the same things. The insurance company wound up sinking more money into repairs than they would have if they just totaled it and got her a new car.


You don't need these repair headaches and wondering how safe your vehicle is... especially with a new baby.

I want to be made whole. A car with a repaired frame is not whole. I want a safe car like I had before. I think since we are going through MY insurance, and they are going to subrogate (?spelling) to make the doctors insurance reimburse, my husband thinks they will total it.

Best of luck to you, I hope the insurance company works with you all.
