Restoring my faith in humanity
Someone hit my car this week. And I was out of town at a conference.

Black Beauty was just sitting in the street, minding her own business, when the Truck approached her. He didn't just tap her; he hit her curvy bumper at an angle that bent it upwards and destroyed its future potential. She now appears to have no teeth and I have a mangled bumper spanning my trunk and backseat. I have to push it down to see out the back window when changing lanes, and in my infinite neuroticism I fear it becoming a deadly projectile should I be involved in an accident.

Most importantly, though, the truck's owner left the scene.

But not before leaving his business card on my windshield.

Thanks to those out there who still use their opposable thumbs and think like humans.

I thought the bumper looked like a dead cyborg.

Oh yipes!

Yay for leaving his card! That's something. I doubt most people do that anymore.

Boy are you lucky! I would have to say that I would leave my number on someone's car if I hit it too. This is just good karma visiting you.

Wow, that's awesome! Having lived in the LA area for a couple of years now, I have to say that that would NEVER happen here. I've seen cars drive up ON TOP of parked cars on the PCH and try to drive off. Although someone who had ton of groceries did let me cut in line the other day because I only had 2 things - that brightened my day. It's the little things, y'know?

Carol- you're funny! So true.

Kris, I hope all is covered by that card and phone number. It's a good start and hopefully someone bothering to leave a card did it for real, not jsut for appearance's sake. Here's to a shiny new fender... and NO repair bill. :)
