Well, hell, revisited

Pulling into the parking lot at work today, some guy looking over his shoulder and not paying attention plowed right into the side of my car. Fer Chrissakes, WTF is it with me and cars lately?? Sitting in my car waiting for the cops to show. Grr.

Ouch. :(

I'm glad you're okay. But geeze...

The fates telling you to get a Poly Friendlier car? You tempted them with the Sushi run, now they are laughing at you!

Glad your not hurt.

I was going to say all the same things! So glad you didn't get hurt.

Well, ack! Is your car alive?

... some villain has painted a target symbol on your car! If you can figure out what wavelength to look for it in, you can perhaps remove it! Sheer evil!

Ack!!! I hope you're ok. How badly is it damaged?

The car's still drivable, but he hit me right smack dab over the front weel, so the front end is nicely caved in. Gonna be next week at the earliest before the police report is filed and I can get estimates for the fix, then get hold of his insurance company and start badgering them to fix it.

His car, natch, wasn't damaged at all.

You are okay, right?

This has gotta be frustrating.

BOO. You are not having a good year with cars. :(
I do hope you're okay, and that the car is still driveable/easily repaired.

Car's still drivable, though the front side is pretty well and thoroughly mashed in. Nobody was hurt, but I'm extraordinarily annoyed about the car.

I'd be pissed, too. Hopefully Idiot Dude's insurance will pay for your repairs without a fuss.
Since he hit you right on the wheel, make sure you have your mechanic check your alignment and such. I got hit smack dab on my wheel once, and it knocked my suspension all out of whack. It was still driveable (to the mechanic, which was not far away), but my wheels looked like this: /---/ when they should have looked like this: |---|.

Next time it won't be a car that hits you. It'll be Orca bombers. Many, many Orca bombers.

Seriously, I'm glad you're okay. How bad is the damage?

Got to take it in for an estimate, but it looks like the left front quarter panel is gonna need to be replaced. No structural or mechanical damage that I can see, but it looks pretty bad now.

The universe is definitely sucking this week. I'm glad I'm not alone in having noticed.
