Default A very sad day

Well I've been off here for a few days doing some work getting ready to go back to school. Also my dad has been in the hospital for open heart surgery hes doing much better now however, when i went to pick him up from the hospital one day i come out and see everyones worst nightmare.

My Bonnie had been backed into. The paint and everything on her was beautiful. Now theres alot of spiderwebbing of the paint and a good amount gone. Also they hit me hard enough to pinch the fender. Nowu can imagine my furry at this and whats worse.... They told me there was nothing i could do because there is no cameras in that area... GAH!!!!

That sucks. Mine was hit over winter, the guy was seen but still denied it. My insurance had to cover it and I had to eat the deductible.

Sorry to hear of all this happening. Its really a bitch thats happened to your car, I go nuclear. But a car can always be fixed or replaced. A Dad is a one time gift. Hope the surgery went well and gives him many more years to enjoy.

They say it should last for about 20+ years so its all good there. And i did go nuclear none of my friends would get near me for the day i was an *** to everyone!! Then my lady friend walks up and goes "since your car is a piece now that means i can drive it right?" well that did a great job to put me in a better mood

I have managed to put it behind me and get ready for the possible new ride. Even with the damage ive had two offers on the Bonnie. Just goes to prove the quality of our vehicles

Sorry to hear about your car and your Dad. It sucks that nobody has come forward and 'manned up' to hitting your ride. Hang in there!

Sounds like your Dad is gonna be around for a long time to come! Now...all you have to do is get the Bonnie fixed and then you'll have both around for a long time.
