Default Dangit!!!!

A girl hit me this morning when she was pulling into the spot next to mine, needless to say she overestimated her turning radius. She'* got insurance so it'* cool. I'm a little bummed out because its an ugly scar but it will get taken care of.

Is that through the paint? Looks like rubber or something.

I think I would have been a little more than "very upset"

Well, that was a big enough accident to know insurance would be involved. It'* the little things like people opening their doors and hitting my car that **** me off really bad. This was in the middle, It wasn't nearly totalled and it wasn't a little scratch, i was a little agravated but I backed into my g/fs car a few weeks ago, people **** up sometimes.

I agree with your "Dangit" approach. It'* hardly worth getting all fired up and raising your blood pressure over, since it will be repaired soon enough.

Besides, there'* not much that can be done once something already happened.

Still...

Dangit!

good news, found a shop to fix it and the guy said that he would have to repaint the entire bumper assembly and I wasn't complaining!! Case you dont know my whole bumper assembly is ridden with bug marks because the last owner didn't clean off love bugs in time. So anyway yeah I'm glad she hit me now, I'll leave this with a new-looking bumper! :P
