Dear Rude Person....

The Husband and I had a wonderful weekend together.  He still worked a bit on Saturday but for the most part we spent the weekend together.
I'll talk all about all the things we did the weekend tomorrow but I wanted to share how rude people can be...
We went with some friends to the matinee showing of The Change-Up
It is very funny -- there is an excessive use of the 'F' word, FYI - but it is really funny. Boy humor funny for sure but the group we went with all enjoyed it =) We all laughed a lot at most of the movie!

After we saw the movie, we all grabbed a bite to eat.  We were in the mall for about three and a half hours. When J and I walked to our truck, this is what we found:

Ok so clearly whoever hit his truck FELT it. I mean there were marks on his TIRE for goodness sakes! This isn't like a ding with a car door -- this was full on not paying attention, hit the truck as they were pulling in or out. THEN they just drive off -- no nothing. Not information, or apology or ANYTHING. How cowardly!!! I just don't understand -- FL is no fault so it wouldn't come out of the other person's pocket, the insurance would all deal with it. Be a decent human and if you didn't give your information or try to locate the owner because you don't have insurance, you shouldn't be driving because by law, you have to carry some sort of insurance. So, please people, if you EVER do something like this, please have the courtesy to leave your information, no matter how embarrassed you are about it. OK I think that is enough ranting.

J said it looked like Ford red haha. It is funny to think that different companies use different shades of red, which I know is true, it was just funny that he could 'classify' it =) Luckily, this is J's first claim in over 5 years and he hasn't had a ticket in a long time, so they gave him a credit for being a good driver to go towards his deductible...so it won't be AS much as it would have been. The whole thing still sucks and wasn't really our favorite way to close a weekend lol.  
Lesson today, Kids: See The Change-up and be a responsible, decent grown-up. That really isn't asking a whole lot.

What did you do this weekend?

Ok so I had just gotten my new car..had it about 2 months, drove to my second job, (waitressing) and what do ya know, I came out and there was a note on my windshield that said SORRY. That's all that was written. At first I was like WTF? Sorry? for??? Then it dawned on me that maybe someone hit my car? so I jumped out and low and behold yep! Someone backed into me..they cracked a small crack in my bumper and some paint was smudged. I WAS PISSED. I went back into my work and a customer said they saw someone do it, and figured they were leaving me their insurance info. WRONG. This person ACTED like they were leaving me, when really they only pretended bec someone was watching them!!! Isn't that awful!?!

end rant. LOL Have a good day!

That stinks that people do that! We have had that happen to us as well and i just don't get how people can feel good about walking away without leaving any information! Hope you are having a great Monday!

OMG!!!!! So freaking rude. So many evil hearted people. How annoying. Ugh. Sorry y'all had to deal with that.

Kristen said...

Omg, that sucks. :( People can be so irresponsible and uncaring. At least J has the good driver thing going, but stilll...it's not something you were expecting.

This is awful.

I am an P & C insurance agent in {Georgia} different laws but you can still report this to the police. They can write down {red ford} and be on a look out for vehicles of this color & also look for your vehicle marks on their truck. It's worth the shot. They will be in serious trouble if you did find his idiot. You may or may not find him/her but... again, you could! This person needs to know this is NOT okay. A ticket for no insurance is much better than a hit in run {court visit}.

I'm sorry this happened to you. I see it all the time & it sucks.
