They will find you. It is not bad. I did pop it out, but it is not right. Paint is scratched and the rubber deformed. The lady did find me and will have her insurance agent call me first of next week to plan to get it fixed.

Yes I have her info. I took a pic of her insurance card and her car and plate. There where witnesses also. Should be no big deal.
Except the part that I have to take it to get it fixed. I have had this car sense November I am very careful where I park. LOL with 2800 miles you can tell I drive a lot. That is 2800 no zero's missing.

This is why i take up two, sometimes four parking spots when i go to work. My co-workers tell me "what, you think you drive a nice car"
I tell em, I actually do.

That's just a dick move. I'm all about being careful and stay away from certain types of car/people. But to cause an inconvenience, that's a no no.

I read somewhere that your car is more likely to get hit if you park in the back of a parking lot for a few reasons. 1. Assholes who didn't find a spot close to the door are more likely to cut through the parking spaces to make it back to the from so they can have first pick of the empty spaces. 2. People tend to drive faster and more careless because it is less likely that there are pedestrians in the back of the parking lots. I can count at least three cases where I was leaving a parking lot and some douche came cutting through the parking spaces almost hitting me. Both of us slammed on our brakes. "What the fuck!? I'm sorry, I must be in YOUR way! Please, you can go first. Continue your moving violation. But watch out for the mother and two small children in the other row. God forbid they get in your way." all of these case were in Delaware. Two of them in the parking lot in the Camden Wal-Mart and one at the mall. My car was hit by a city bus (in Dover) while I was asleep in my bed! And a race fan from PA ran a red light and I T-Boned him. Both not my fault. Thanks for depreciating the value of my car. Dickheads. I totally feel your pain too.

I report people like you at work all the time. Its also the cars that get spit on, keyed and scratched for being A-Holes. So good luck, your just pissing other people off.

As the closing manager at a restauraunt, I'm required to park in the front parking stalls for security at night. I was sitting in my car when an Envoy full of teenage girls pulls up next to me. Girl gets out the back and hit my car with her door. I didn't see any damage so I wasn't about to go inside and harass a 14-year-old girl. Wish I had looked closer, there was a decent ding that I couldn't see because of rain.

So now I'm out $100 to get the dent fixed.

Haha *Why you no pop back?*

I tend to not drive/park around Toyota's. Their owners don't know how to drive.

Look at my dad's car for evidence of this.

Then don't be surprised if people are jerks to you too. By kicking your door in and scraping the hood with track shoes.

i would just get a buddy and park 2 cars inches from him on both sides. that way he ain't going anywhere.

And I'll take a picture of his license plate too. So if there's a car missing and mine is dinged, I'd know who did it.

when I see someone taking up 4 parking spaces, i usually park within inches of their car on the driver side. I too value my truck but no sense in that
