Default purple curse

I believe we may have a purple curse. Beware. My reasoning you ask? I've had the car for just over a year and a half. In this time:

it'* been hit with 2 shopping carts
mom hit the carport with it
it'* rolled into a Chevy Lumina
the trim panel has fallen off 3 times
the passenger front door panel has broken
it was hit with a football so hard it dented the roof
a tree branch fell on it
locked my keys in it twice

I'm sure there'* more, can't think of anything else. But I just wanted you all to be aware of the purple curse.

A good bit of it yet.

Shopping carts can't hit it, when it'* not near them.
Carport.. uh talk to Mom
Football... car was close enough to be hit?

Keys... ask for a remote starter or something. I've never locked my keys in the car when the remote needed to be in my hand to lock it.

Shopping carts, mom was driving, she don't drive it anymore.
Carport, again, she don't drive it anymore.
Football, mine was the ONLY car in the parking lot, and they chose to throw it towards my car. It was in the school parking lot, I told the principle i shouldn't have to worry about my car getting hit in a parking space that I have to pay for.

There can't be a black car curse. I have had my car for 6 years and got in only one accident, no tickets, and nothing major has broken down (knock on wood). I'm not saying the accident was my fault, cause I never admit fault of an accident.
Am i due??

The curse is for white cars. There'* not enough PP cars to be cursed The guy upstairs isn't even aware of them.

Then again if you don't put a panel on right, of course it'll fall off
