At work, and a co-worker tells me my car just got hit in the parking lot. Kid named Bubba or Cooter with a truck that has tires taller than me, had difficulty pulling into a parking spot. Fortunately we use the same insurance company. Wish he took out a head light...

Sorry to hear about your bad luck. Easy fix as long as the damage didn't get into the rear quarter

Same thing happened to me two years ago. Sideswiped in a parking lot. I feel your pain.

Allow me a brief rant...people buy these enormous trucks and SUVs, then discover they don't have the skills and ability to maneuver them in a parking lot. The other day, I saw some idiot in a huge Ramcharger with dualies, no less, trying to park in a standard-size parking space with cars on either side.

Cooter needs to trade-in his giant mud-stomper for something he can park. Like a Fiat, or a Prius.

Well let's hope the adjuster on your policy doesn't try to cheap out on repairs like mine did in an instance with same-company insurance. I figured they were trying to skimp so they'll save on subrogation back to themselves.

Hope you get it fixed up and back in shape soon.

Sorry to hear about your Box. At least you know who did it, and he's man enough to admit it. I got creamed in Colorado Springs and the bastard never stopped. And surprise, no one saw anything. I had to claim it against my own insurance company.

That Sux;

Rant #2: I hate driving behind these people in their big trucks / dually's as they always have one tire on the shoulder kicking up rocks and other debris. I usually have to lay back 5 car lengths so I don't get nose rash, then; of course, because of such a large gap I always get cutoff by cars trying to fit in between. GRRRRrrrrrr.

Damn indeed. I got rear ended in March by an idiot in the parking lot at work. You'll never guess, he was texting. Totaled the car behind me and pushed her into me. I didn't have too hard of a time with his insurance. They initially quoted $700. I smiled. My Porsche indy put it back right for $4200. The paint matches perfectly. Hold your ground.

My personal are

And there are two.....and it is always old people ( and I am old)

You do not have to slow down to 5mph ( on a divided 65mph 4 lane) and swerve into the right lane to turn into a full turning middle lane

I am doing 65 mph and you pull out in front of me when I am 200 feet from you and there is nothing behind me and then drive 20 mph on a 65 mph highway.

My two....Im done
