Someone hit my new grill

i just got home from walmart and my new grill is bent in and theres red paint on it and it got ripped off of the grill surround. nothing else is hit, just the grill. so it was prob an suv, walmart is reviewing the tapes as we speak, im pretty heated.

i will file a report when he gets back to me in 15.

A woman with a cell phone and SUV is how my moped got totaled going to get my down payment for my truck.

that sucks, at least it was just the grill. my little bro hit my 91 mustang with his lifted f-150 and caused $1500 worth of damage to the back bumper and hatch right in my driveway. btw, didnt even put a scratch on his truck. thats what pissed me off the most.

I was sitting in wally world parking lot the other day, noticed a fullsize chevy going across the lot. Well pulled past one parked hyundai, and there was someone walking down the aisle, which he apparently didn't see because he hauled the wheel to the left and proceeded to simultaneously remove the front bumper/headlight/marker light from the hyundai and completely rework the bedside so many gm engineers toiled over. Never stopped either, and I didn't see the plate due to snow. Park in the back, waay in the back.

That sucks man. Good luck with it, but you can always straighten that grill. I did on my old Edge when I got pushed into another car. Is the surround broken?

i was parked in a super wallmart in springville ny, and watched a woman back out of her spot, right into the driver rear of a brand new F250. she got out, looked at her car, rubbed off what i think was her paint from the truck, then proceed to pull away, thinking she was un-noticed. well that fat *** tank didnt realize i saw everything, and took her plate as she pulled away. i called the cops, and they came, took my info, and found out she lived 3 miles away. the cop went to her house, and i waited there to id her if they caught her. they did! they brought her back, and she said he wasnt even parked there...hes a liar. well..... heres the kicker.... MY TRUCK WAS ON THE SURVEILLANCE CAMERA..... when the accident investigator showed up, the truck owner came out and was like wtf?!?!?!? the police spoke to him, and told him i was the guy who saw it all. we chuckled hardily as she got cuffed up. guess she didnt have valid insurance, and was driving on a suspended license/registration tags. so.... she got hooked and booked, car impounded, and laughed at most indubidibly!!! and the officer told me where she lived too...... guess where...... a run down trailer park. go figure eh? the guy ended up suing her for the 900$ of damage.... which was just really some scuffed paint, and very minor scratching..... all i have to say to that is.....MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

I dont know if your talking to the store manager or any operations manager. Call and ask to speak directly to Asset Protection. Those are the security guys at the store and deal with the camera equip.

If your calling and asking for asset protection at the front desk good luck. Most employees are clueless to who they are so they are probably there and they are going to say no lol. Better off going in during the day to see if any AP are working.
