My poor Bumper

So today I parked at work in a spot all by lone some and came into the cubicle of hell. When I left for lunch I noticed the car that had parked in front of me was so turned on by the porsche that it decided to try and have sex with my front bumper....

so I reported it and now she is denying she hit my car.....

Did you get to see the other car's bumper after it'd touched your bumper? Were/Are there any marks/paint visible? If so, take pics immediately. Also check if any paint transferred onto your car (should be easy, since your car is white), and see if the color matches the other car's color. Also, is there any parking lot video camera where you'd parked your car? (Most places like Walmart etc. do have this). While they may not release the tape to you personally, they have to do so if you have a court order.

With all that, do keep in mind that it is entirely possible that someone else touched your bumper, and upon realizing that, moved their car to another spot. Then, some poor sucker came and parked in front of your car.

I hate to say this, and I know I will get some flack for saying this, BUT MOST WOMEN CAN'T DRIVE! LET ALONE PARK. Same thing happened to me a year ago at a gas station. I was pumping my gas, when I see this lady pull in front to front and slowly run into the front end of my car. Lucky for me I ran up and stopped her before it became to bad. She had to back up. She could not see over the front end of her car. I looked at her dented up car and realized she was just a bad driver. Her car had been in some kind of a wreck and was still not fixed. I didn't even ask if she had insurance. Judging by the look of her crappy wreck I could tell it wasn't likely. I went home and was able to buff it out. My car wasn't hurt as bad as your sounds.

You should have taken a picture first, instead of moving the car. If she denies it just get your time card, talk to the security camera guy, or look for paint on your bumper. You should be able to prove this lady is wrong. I hate people that don't have enough integrity to admit when they are wrong. that lady should get fired!

^ @porsche986spyder - Not all women are bad drivers, (but honestly most are). My sister for instance in her Mini Cooper, is a really fantastic driver. I guess that is what commuting in Southern California does.

even if I had the picture, she would have said I hit her and am blaming her for it....she was pretty mad and the officer was a total d$%k although he was in a no win situation....

still could have been friendlier about it....chalk it up to life....

Chuck, ill asses the damage tonight after class if you bring it
i still cant believe you park that thing downtown chicago with buncha college kids sure looks better than the rest of the junk in the parking lot hehe.

but from what u are describing, shouldnt be of much concern, but still retarted people are out there and cant park. you would think she would at least move it when she parked it and noticed how close she got to your car.

Super,

Sorry to hear about your car ! I'm glad the damage wasn't too bad. I couple of weeks ago I was heading out to my car from work and I watched this guy back out of his spot right into the passanger side door of another parked car. He then proceeded to put his car in gear and start driving away ! I screamed "Hey" - he stopped, came back, and I watched him as he put a note on the other car with his contact information. The inconsideration of some people up here never ceases to amaze me

Nick
