I went to PetSmart today to buy a crate for my pup to keep in the truck so I'm not lugging a crate around everytime I wanna take her someplace, it will also increase the likelihood that I take the pup with me since it won't be a hassle anymore!

Anyway she did really good in petsmart... pooped on the floor n all! LOL She kept hopping into all the crates on display, it was amusing.

Anyway I went out to the truck n sat in the truck for about 5 minutes trying to figure something out on my new cell phone, when I hear a SCREEEEECHHHHH.... I look up and I see this green minivan that just slammed head on into a parked car, WHILE PARKING... she drove too far into her spot n hit the car on the other side of the spot... not just a lil tap either, it looked like she hit the gas pedal instead of the brakes!!

So I see the minivan back up n the lady looking a little panicked not knowing what to do, she grabs her cell phone n calls someone, gets out n walks around, gets back into the minivan n DRIVES AWAY! Well... this just pisses me off how someone can do that, so being the nice guy I am, I pulled out n got behind her, wrote down her tag info as well as any notable markins on the car (such as the completely smashed up passenger side door, the bumper hanging loose... and all the other telltale signs of "this person shouldn't be behind the wheel")... I wrote a note explaining what I saw with the description of the vehicle and the tag information. I didn't see any real damage to the Hyundai that got hit, the front tag was bent and the frame was cracked, but I didn't take a good look, I didn't exactly wanna be hanging around there n have someone think that I was the one who hit the car LOL... but man I can't believe someone just driving away. It's happened to me a few times n it drives me crazy, even a small ding costs hundreds to repair at a body shop! I hope the information I left behind was of some use to them, if there was any notable damage... if there wasn't then she got lucky that it was just her front tag that got bent up.

GOOD!

Man, that pisses me off too. Talk about not taking personal responsibility.....

I forget whether this was a joke or a real thing, but some guy did that and then in front of witnesses left a note under the wiper of the car he had hit, and drove away.

The note said: "The people looking at me think I am writing down my name and number and insurance company, but I'm not."

Heh, this story hits a little near my heart. I saved up my money 3 years ago to buy one of my (functional) cars of my dreams: an ElCamino (laugh now, but I loved it. I could put 3 dog crates or a whole bunch of equipment in the bed, and it's a LOT lower than a truck so it's easier to load/unload)

Anyways, so I was pulling into the last available spot in a gas station (this was right after hurrican Ivan) and walked inside to pay (card machine wouldn't work) and I heard a SCREEEEEECH, WHAM
I went outside to see my front fender smashed in and some stupid guy in a little S-10 tearing out of the gas station with some severe damage to his front end. After he was pulled over (I got his plate # and called Seminole County Sherriff) he said he hadn't seen my car there and was racing in the spot to get the last available drops of gas. Then he said he "panicked" and just left.
So the thing that sucks is that my insurance wouldn't cover collision on a car older than 1984, so my car was basically totaled... so needless to say...

3 hours after picking up my 1984 z28 camaro from the car deale someone pulled out in front of me n caused me to total their buick. my insurance company wanted to total my car too but I yelled at em n showed em the price I paid ($200 more than the damage repair) so they had it fixed. the cars been sitting in my garage for the last 3 or 4 years as an ongoing money pit (drag race car). I used to bracket race at the orlando race track but got sick of the expense... dogs are a lot cheaper! lol. one day ill race that car again, but for now it can sit there n not cost me anything lol. ill post a photo of the car before and after the body shop was done with it. people who can't drive drive me crazy, if the speed limit says 45mph people do 40... school buses are usually the fastest drivers in my part of town LOL.

Well, I partially fixed the car, but had to sell it after I had my son. You just can't cart a baby around in an 83 El Camino with no catalytic converter. I had to buy.... this:

At least it's good for Shane. :? Of course, since I've gotten the car I've tinted the windows as dark as legally possible, and have added "CAUTION K-9" to the side.
Oh well, that's the sacrifice of being a parent!

oh, I just noticed on my Elky story I put hurrican Ivan, it was Charley, not Ivan! Derrr ](*,)

I owned a 2000 Z28 for a small time, had a drag package in it. Of course, it was "street legal" from the outside. I'm kind of a American car girl :D

I also own a 1987 Porsche 928 S, but that stays up in Indiana so I can drive when I go there. V8 is my style!

When I was 20 years old, I rolled my mini-truck (small baby-blue ford
pickup, people called the "smurf mobile" - not a cool thing :roll: )
in a mall parking lot.

I was one of "those" people - but however, I agree with Connie, in that
I'm one of "those" people who believe in taking personal responsibility
- even at the expense of one's own (post-teen) reputation :wink:
