Hmm, let's go through the checklist.
  • I'm not married, nor do I have a girlfriend. I'm a single mofo. Am I happy about this? Nay sir. nay.
  • No kids, don't want any. The only way I'm having kids at this point in my life is if I forget to wrap the tool, refer to point 1. No girlfriend. No worries!
  • I have a couple pets in my life, and I consider them important in my life. But they are not my dogs, they're my family's dogs.
  • I don't have my own home, I rent.

So in short, I consider my vehicles one of the most important things in my life as they're one of the only assets I actually own at this point, therefore my vehicles are my "babies". At this point I'm ranting and I really don't think this entire post was relevant. I need a beer.

Maybe I should just dedicate this thread to the damage my car receives on a regular basis. Poor thing.

This time it's a victim to the boulders they put on the freeway for grip in the snow (said boulders are comparable in size to a manatee). I wish the gob'ment would implement a winter tire policy in Alberta and get rid of the gravel, salt and sand that has ruined the front of my truck and is slowly destroying my car as well. Then maybe I'd enjoy winter.

Back to the original story, what happened with the original truck? Were they tracked down and the damage to the two cars went against his insurance?

And I remember a few years ago, I was driving on the interstate in Chicago, four lanes across if I remember right. There was a six foot ladder laying in the middle of the road (not my lane).

Well, the thread had been dead for a year-and-a-half and the OP hasn't posted in 12 months so...

I saw the date on the post and was thinking it was October of 2014 for some reason.

With his luck he probably hit a moose and totaled the car.
