"The driver had been wearing a seatbelt." Was that added because that was all he was wearing?

@ Greg, I can tell your therapist has been playing a lot of word association games with you. Therapist: "Greg, I'm going to read a sentence to you that you would likely find in an article about an accident between a motorcyclist and the driver of a Jeep Grand Cherokee. There were serious injuries to the motorcyclist. Tell me the first thing that comes into your teeny, tiny mind when I mention that the driver of the Jeep Grand Cherokee was wearing a seatbelt. Ready, PERV?" You must have quite an imagination. Or maybe it was just wishful thinking. Either way, your comment was inappropriate and uncalled for.

You'll get over it.

"You'll get over it." Was that added because teeny, tiny inappropriate responses are all your teeny, tiny mind thinks about, TEENY, TINY?
