    When I was driving home today, I hit a pickup when it ran a stop sign, and the driver took off. My mother and I were unhurt and the damage to the car was minor, so I went home and called the police.

    Two hours later a cop showed up, looked at the damage, got a brief account from me of what happened along with the license, and then left. He said there wasn't much to be done and not to call the insurance company.

    So now I feel stupid.

    Why do you feel stupid? You did the right thing and that person should not have left without being assured you were OK...it feels awful to be treated that way...I am also glad that there was no significant damage to you or your mother

    I just feel silly that I got so nerved up over it, then waited two hours for a 5-minute visit by a police officer.
