Ugh, some ppl are so lame

To make a long story short, I walked out of work yesterday and was greeted with this



I can't believe how inconsiderate some people are. I make mistakes just like everybody else, but if I hit someone and I was in a hurry I'd at least leave a name and phone number to call. Odds are it was probably somebody without any insurance anyways, knowing where i live... I was absolutely furious for a good 12 hours. Considering I just replaced my front bumper less a little over a month ago, this is just a slap in the face.

That sucks! Sadly, most people nowadays are just scum and have that kind of mentality of "who gives a crap". Hopefully there were security cameras around that the police can review and bust the crap out of that scumbag hit-n-run driver. That crap pisses me off!

I am sorry but thats freakin funny!!!!! LMAO
But seriously, it does suck and like it was mentioned before, hopefully they have security cameras. Or maybe it was an old person that didnt realize they did it. My dad used to come home all the time and curse about having another dent in his escort wagon. "But I know it was him". I have that wagon now, OHHH what a mess!!!

Ive done that when I got rear-ended. Its a 20/20 job. Looks good at 20 feet or at 20MPH. Unfortunately, there will still be minor creases and the paint will get some spider webbing.

claim it as a hit and run parking lot incident through insurance. my mom has had to claim this a few times because of where she works.
