Ok, picture time. She picked me up from the airport last night in her truck, not the Focus, because she didn't want to be around when I first saw it. She feels terrible and i think I've done a pretty good job of not making her feel TOO bad, though she knew i was very upset. More than anything it is a senseless waste of money and her and i will both have to bear the cost. So here I am with the car in the sunshine and there are a couple of spots that look pretty bad right on the hood. Also, she left the offending scrub pad with a note.

Man, I can't imagine how bad she feels. I didn't realize that you had been out of town during all this. I bet the thought of it has been stewing away at both of you--you not being able to see the damage first hand, and of course her awaiting your reaction when you did.

But yeah some of those scratches look pretty deep, I think you can get 80-90% fixed with a good detail job.

Personally, I would call off the wedding, sell the ring, and fix the car.

But that's just me.
