For our family, going to see the new Indiana Jones movie is going to cost us $250. Why you ask…let me tell you.
On Sunday, our entire family went to the Alamo Drafthouse (the BEST movie house ever) to see Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. After two hours at the theater, we walked to our car. While we were inside, someone (thinking numerous descriptive expletives now) decided that crunching into the back of my car was a good idea. It looked like a large truck with a big grill thought that taking out my license plate and denting in my trunk would be fun. MAN, was I angry!
Whoever crunched my car did not leave insurance information or a note. They didn’t say they were sorry. They definitely didn’t park close to my car after hitting it. They just got away, scott-free.
I called State Farm on the way home to report the hit-and-run. They asked if we had called the police. My husband and I thought that since no one was injured (and it was a holiday weekend), that we didn’t need to trouble the police. Apparently, we did. Insurance needs a police “blue form” filled out and sent in. If we don’t send in the form, our deductible will be $500. With the form, it will be $250. It will be covered under uninsured driver with the form. We will also be given a rental car while the repair work is done.
I know I am TOTALLY NAIVE because I was really upset that the person that hit our car didn’t fess up. My husband thinks I am naive and too trusting of the world. I do recall wishing leprosy on the driver. I know it wasn’t nice to say. I was (and still am) really mad.
So…we have to go to an approved repair shop on Thursday for an estimate of work and time frame. That is time out of our crazy schedule. It will probably take 2-3 days for the repairs. I will have to ask a family member to drive me to the rental car place. All because someone decided that they could squeeze into a parking space with their big car.
Beware of summer blockbuster movies. Movies = Busy parking lots = Stupid parallel parking idiots
(P.S. Although we loved Shia in the new Indy movie, the flick didn’t rank above #1 or #3 in the series. We are hoping that Shia “takes the hat” and carries on the Indy movies. He seems like a sweet guy.)
