So, I got into a car accident in a company car on Friday. It was my fault totally, but the damage was very minimal. I took my eyes off the road for a second and right when I put them back on I noticed the car in front of me stop suddenly. So, applying the breaks too late, my car bumped the car in front while that car bumped the car in front of it. In other words it was a chain reaction.
Freaking out, I get out of my truck and admit fault and then get all the necessary papers out for the people to sign and look at. We take photos, exchange insurance information, (as I was in a company car I shared the info with company's insurance) There was a kid in the seat of the car that was hit in front and his mother came out freaked out. She started saying, "What happened? My son started saying, 'Mommy, Mommy my head hurts!'" And the kid was laughing and didn't seem to be crying or anything. The damage was so minimal it was non-existent as I mentioned earlier. I had some damage done to the front of the truck, license plate and some of the bumper was damaged but nothing serious.
The person in the car I hit directly was telling me how she could just get a pain job done and it would be okay, but we did exchange.
So, I get back to the store and they send me home. Sticking around while off the clock, I fill out all the papers and write all that I know in the statement. My manager sends the pictures to the co-owner of the company and she tells me I'm going to get a call from him. Mind you...it's Election Day and the incident happened on Friday. So pretty much this weekend I was freaking out and stressing over this one guy calling me.
I guess I'm not sure if I should just quit or wait until this dude calls me. I called the store and they said my schedule this week was crossed out...but that was from a co-worker and not a manager. I didn't even hear from any of the managers or the owner. It's pissing me off. I mean, if I'm fired...just tell me. You know what I mean? How would you handle this situation if you were in my shoes?
