A Ghost Crashed My Brother’s Car

, , , , | Working | October 29, 2021

As a teenager, my brother parked his car in neutral at the top of a hill one too many times, and it rolled all the way down, picking up a fair bit of speed before it crashed into a tree. Soon after, he was filling out an insurance claim online.

Form: “Was the car in motion at the time of the accident?”

Brother: “Yes.”

This triggered a required follow-up question.

Form: “Who was driving the car?”

Brother: “…”

Me: “Try entering ‘Sir Isaac Newton’.”

He eventually had to cancel the form and talk to a human agent, who agreed that there was really no good way for him to file online. Apparently, it had never occurred to the people who wrote the form that a car might move without a driver.
