Default Aaargh!

So i just got the blazer on the road like two days ago.
At college, i usually park way out in the back of the lot w/ my bonneville, but yesterday pretty mcuh all the spots were full so i took the chance to park closer. Bad choice!
I went out the blazer today, and happen to look at the passenger door, and theres a nice dent w/ red paint on it. And there was a red grand am parked next to me when i came out to my car after class.
Needless to say i'm pissed.

That'* F'ed up. My Mom was telling me about when they lived in Hamtramck, MI, My grandpa had a cherry '69 Riviera, and he came out to the parking lot to find a DENT in the door. He said he looked at the car next to it, color matched the dent on his, lined it up, and it matched, so he said he opened his door and went WHACK! and left a nice dent in theirs too and left.

And DENTS is why I park AWAY from other cars at the store.

I'd leave a note, other wise, things could escalate from that point if they knew you or recognized your car some other day...

Had that happen to me as well, someone musta clipped the front corner of my bumper, and not said anything. I think it happened a few days before I found it. Also i have black scuff marks on my rear bumper, by the license plate...

My mom found a note on her expedition a few months ago, where someone said they had opened the door and it nicked the expedition but didn't leave any marks. the lady just wanted us to know...

I would wonder if writing down the plate numbers would assist you at all if you called insurance companies. I've acquired three nice little dings since I've owned my car. Now if I'm in the walmart p-lot, fat chance I'll be seeing the same guy again. So the one time I caught the car that did it to the Grand Marquis, while they were in the store, I accidentally left my cart 'drift' into their bumper. Those rubber bumpers on the cars to more bad than they do good for the paint lol.

Now with the only 97 Bonneville, let alone with tinted tails on campus, I would avoid damaging other people'* cars at all costs. If they see a dark green paint chip inside their dent on their door, they may come back and get me worse There'* NO WHERE to park without being next to somebody by my last class It'* like a detailing buff'* worst nightmare. Just imagine... a parking lot that probably holds about the same as any wal-mart parking lot would... but constantly full of cars... it'* scary and saddening.
