Icon13 WTF! Had a wreck...

Well, as title says I had a wreck in the parkin lot at work... this is gonna get kinda long, but here's what happend...

Well I was goin down a row in the parkin lot to find a parkin spot and there was a silver Chevy Trailblazer infront of me... well she passed a spot, and she was a good 3-4 car lengths from me... well she started backin up and I was think surely she not gonna back up to get this spot (that I was behind) so she backin up backin up backin up... and She was gettin real close so I put my truck in Reverse, and was gonna wait for her to stop so I could back up so she could get her beloved parkin spot, and she got bout 5 feet from me and I realized she wasn't gonna stop and I layed on the horn and BAM, she tagged me! My front bumper is jacked up, it isn't super bad, but it still looks like sh*t... So yeah I was pretty pissed, then on top of that, she asked a bunch of stupid questions.

Well thanks for readin, and I'll post pics tomorrow in good daylight... gonna get estimated tomorrow.... Why can't people pay attention the where the heck they are goin?
(end rant)

To bad you didnt have one of those train horns. With that you probably would have killed her though.

what kinda stupid questions did she ask?

I got the oh didn't see your truck

the ***** was going forward through parking spaces with a big lifted Chevy 1500 and hit my rear quarter on my red truck that wasn't moving, nor was I in it or anywhere near it....

Chevy=pushed in bumper and cracked parking light

Ford=scratches and a small dent

Ford=1 Chevy =0

Same thing has happened to me twice. The first time I was in my Camaro and I hit the horn but she just kept on coming. I had just had the front end repainted. The other time I was in high school in my old 65 Falcon. The horn didn't work and the kid backed into me with his escort. The funny thing is he just put it in drive and pulled into the parking spot. I got out and looked at my car and couldn't see any damage, his car was jacked up. I just laughed and drived off.
I always keep my hitch off my truck but I might start putting it on after you guys mention it protecting the truck.

I would have flipped ****. It might just me but AREN'T YOU SUPPOSE TO LOOK BEHIND YOU WHEN YOU BACK UP?! Jesus, then she has the nerve to ask if it was her fault. No **** lady, you can't drive.

Man, you really can't have nice things these days. People fighting for parking spaces. Was it at a Grocery Store or Wal Mart? When I worked at Kroger I would go out and get buggies and it was like the Daytona 500 in the parking lot. I am sorry that happened man, but get every cent out of her you can. That is why I back into a parking space, if someone backs into me they get the brush guard. Well on the other side they get the tow hook to haha. Hope it all gets better for you!

well Bottoms Up (Brandon) the sad thing is it was at work (FedEx Ground)... the whole time I was tryin to get her info, she kept askin what time it was, like she was worried about bein late or somethin... Oh and I tried to call her today and her "friend" answered the phone, and said he'd relay the message, of course I never heard back from her, and didn't see her at work either, but I talked to a couple of other people at work, and found out what area she works in... So, I'll try again tomorrow, i HATE drivin around with damage... it sucks!!!

should of told her that it must be nice to be on welfare and not have to worry about having to pay for things with her own money. alight my story time...

i backed into like an 80s toyota corolla one day at my bank cause she came speeding around the corner so i didnt see her. my truck got a small dent on the bumper her car was totalled due to being dent from the rear view mirror all the way to the trunk including pushing in her door locks and handles.

ford=1 toyota=0
