A hit and run to my car – AGAIN!

August 24th, 2008

Someone hit my red Mustang about 2 months ago when our family went to see Indiana Jones. They crunched into my trunk and drove away. No “Whoops! Here is my insurance information.” No nothing. It cost my husband and I $500 in deductible to fix the back of my car. *sigh* Thanks for hitting me….NOT!

While I went running this morning, my husband put my car on the street and pulled out the car in the garage so he could work on it. He forgot to put my car back into the driveway. I should have known.

This afternoon we went over to my in-laws for 5 hours to have a barbecue and watch the Olympics. When we got home, we noticed that someone had completely crunched the front left fender of my Mustang. The tire was uninjured, but the front fender and part of my door were crunched badly. My husband thought a truck had done it. My car was parked at least 3 car lengths from the corner of the road. Whoever hit me was a COMPLETE MORON!

We noticed that there was a note on our front door. One of our neighbors had heard/seen a black pick-up truck hit my car. We have some very wild neighbors up two houses that own a black truck. I wonder… The Sheriff talked to our neighbor and added his information to the report. It was a hit-and-run, plain and simple.

We filed a report with the Sheriff and called our insurance. *sigh* That will be another $500 deductible. I must be completely naive. I am honest. Why aren’t other people honest when they make a mistake? *grumble grumble*

    Do you have some kind of offensive bumper sticker on your car?

    You mean like: “My kid can beat up your honor student” or “Honk if you are a Redneck”? No. I don’t have anything like that. I do have some stickers on my window that say I love to run. Other than that, nothing offensive. My insurance company says it is because my car is red. I think it is just that people aren’t paying attention. The thing that makes me the most frustrated is that folks don’t leave a note. Where did honesty go?

    I was thinking more like “Dubya 2004” or “McCain 2008”. Oh wait you’re in Texas – do you have an Obama sticker?

    By the way, if the only reason someone should do anything is out of honesty, I wouldn’t bet on it being done.

    Nope. We Libertarians think that we should start fresh. Both teams are pretty much the same in my book.

    As for honesty, I try to be honest in everything I do. It helps me sleep at night.

    ACK! That’s a BUMMER!
