FUN it wasn't!!!!

So, this is what I first saw/noticed when I went out at 7:15 to leave for school. "Oh, bleep, someone broke my taillight."














Then I went around the back of the car. "Oh, bleep, someone HIT my car!"
















Then I took a close look at the side of the car. "Oh, double bleep, the whole quarterpanel is smashed and the trunk is closed crooked!!!"












Then I started noticing "smaller details". "BLEEP, BLEEP- there are WRINKLES in my car!! There are CRACKS in my car. The back window looks like it's gonna pop out! The bumper is split open like a fault line. My tire and wheel cover are smashed up- on the OTHER SIDE!!! There are cracks in and chunks out of the SIDEWALK from my car."















Then I noticed the debris field- small parts of my car on my car, on the sidewalk, on my LAWN! "Bleep, Bleep, Bleep- there are pieces of my car all over the place!!!!"















Somewhere out there- and probably pretty close to here- somebody is driving around with a LOT of front end damage to their SUV. At least *I* can explain to my insurance company- wonder what the SUV owner is gonna say to his?

The police arrived quickly, the insurance company was REALLY nice and unbelievably fast and now I have a nice rental car for who knows how long. The car is at the shop, the adjuster will call me tomorrow, and the shop already says it'll be at least a week and a half. Between the passenger side from the door back, the entire bumper, the trunk, the wheel, and who knows what else that I can't see or didn't notice- by the time I get the car back almost the entire back half of the car body will have been replaced.

I still managed to get to school in time for homeroom. However, I didn't get to homeroom in time for homeroom- remember how my classroom is on the third floor? Well, today was the day the ELEVATOR decided to call out sick!

And that was my day- how was yours????

You poor thing! It was pretty low to do that much damage and drive off. I think you need some stamp therapy!

Wow! What a crappy thing to do to someone's car (accident or not) and then just drive off! I am so glad you weren't injured or near when this happened. I hope someone is able to help you that may have seen or heard something. Yikes! And what a great time for the elevator to not work!
Gentle Hugs,

How awful! Sometimes I wonder and then remember what year it is. Where are the days when someone would at least leave their name,etc. under the windshield wiper if they couldn't stay. I hope they catch whoever it was. You are having a long week.
