Let me expand my previous statement. I don't condone what happened, and feel that some responsibilty should be there for the actions. But, if your boss is using his "trophy" truck as a work truck, he'* kind of an idiot. I worked contruction for many years, and one of the first things you learn is "Don't bring nice things to a work site"....

If I were in his place, I'd probably chew you out for losing it and then move on....

The truck is his daily driver. It is the family truck, work truck, and truck for when he goes on calls for new customers. I don't think a plunger would work. Its on a bend in the sheet medal. Do any of you Mn guys know of a cheap body shop and how much this will cost me?

Ooh...that sucks. I feel your pain as I have damaged things that were important to me or others during outbursts too...I've learned not to do that anymore (costs too much :P ). A friend of mine did the same thing a few months ago to his 96 SLE...he was doing some brake repairs while simultaneously fighting with his fiance. He got frustrated and kicked his bonnie right behind the driver'* side front wheel well. He left a huge dent (about 9" X 6" X 2" deep) with a nasty crease right through it so it can't be popped out. He even managed to damage the paint...see, it could be worse.

How bad is it? We have a franchise around here in the Northeast called Dent Wizard. They go a great job at removing dents and dings. Is the paint damaged?

We have about 500 Dent Wizzard shops around the cities here.

There'* places that fix dents without repainting/removing parts. There'* one here that charges $75 per dent (not that that helps you). Maybe you'll get lucky and find a cheap place to fix it. If your boss is going to fix it he should find the cheapest place, although he does have the right to have it fixed to where it was before the dent, so I wouldn't blame him for not taking it to a crappy shop. Can't his insurance cover it though? Does he have comprehensive coverage? Maybe he could say it was vandalized? Possibly saving you money..?

That is called insurance fraud. That right there is just one of the reasons insurance premiums are so high. You did the "crime" so just fix it. We all have tempers and lost it occasionally but yours happened to damage property of others and you just need to take responsibility for your actions. I know you will do the right thing. Hopefully next time you lose your temper you will think twice before lashing out.

I don't think that it'* a good idea to ever lie to an insurance company.. there would be hell to pay if the real truth came out. You're better off to just suck it up and pay for the repairs out of your own pocket..

I wholeheartedly agree (with Custom88 and SSE14U24ME). I don't exactly believe in karma or anything, but I do believe that, one way or another, dishonest actions will come back to bite you. It'* better to just do the right thing even if it hurts.

Besides, there is such a lack of personal responsibility in this world. It is always nice to see someone take some responsibility for their own actions.
