I hate the public!!!

Since it turned nice outside and is going to stay nice for awhile, i decided to wash the 6 today. Well in the middle of washing it, i found a nice crack in the tail light that's on the trunk lid and a chunk missing out of the other half of the same tail light on the fender. GOD i HATE people when they can't even own up to their mistakes. Can't get a price for a new one, but yeah, I'd imagine that it's close to $100 to fix. There's no damage or scratch's anywhere else on the car. So that's what makes me think it was intentional. Why can't people be responsible for their actions!?!? But i guess it could be worse. They coulda dented the panel or the bumper.

Aww man, i like the new mazdas too.

Yeah, i'm usually not too aggresive of a person, but if you damage my car or someone else's, intentional or not. I will do somethin about it if you just try to walk away. It seriously pisses me off.

When I was younger and we lived in our first house this dick across the street backed into our toyota pickup (soon to be my first car) twice and never said anything. He also later backed into my father's jeep cherokee the week we moved out. My brothers 1990 Nissan 300zx was backed into by a ford SUV and put a massive dent in the front driver's fender in a bar parking lot, floored it and drove off. Which later became my car and was hit in the same spot at my high school by a red bimmer (put a dent right next to the first one). I found the bimmer parked a few spaces over with the same light metallic blue paint on their bumper but I couldn't do anything to their car cause they had cameras at our school. And finally I noticed one afternoon back before christmas that someone (I'm almost certain it was my dumb drunken roomate) opened the door of their white chevy pickup into the passenger side door of my focus. There's just two small dents where the middle and bottom of the door contacted mine, but it still pisses me off like no other.

Also, I'm sure I've told this story here before, but yer gonna hear it again. One of my friends (before I was friends with her) was talking to a friend in the same room as me during lunch in high school. She was telling her friend about how the other day she backed her suzuki areo into someones SUV and drove off cause she didn't want to pay for it. I turned around from the computer I was at and proclaimed sternly "It's people like you I HATE." and just stared at her. She got real quiet and left the room briskly.

Sorry guys, Just had to let off some steam.

But seriously though that sucks donkey balls. This was not a good weekend for Mazdas. Did you happen to talk to Josh at all? Yeah some bitch sideswiped him in his 3 while he was diving it and took off. The cops ended up finding her though and towed her car.

LOL yeah that was the first thing i asked her, but there's no other markings any where else. And it went from driver side to passenger side. There was a knick outta the half of the tail light on the rear quarter panel, not bad, but hell it has under 15,000 miles on it damn it.

NO i didn't hear about Josh, wow that sucks! Did he make a thread? Carnage pics?
