Accident - Everyone OK

Any accident is easier to report when there's been no injuries, except for the hapless souls I'd like to maim for damaging my pristine ride. Apparently a park/hit-n-run in a parking lot yesterday. You see it's driveable (barely), but it's simultaneously infuriating and embarrassing to be seen in until I get it repaired.

IDK which would feel better, knowing it was some j.o. resentful of a nicer car than theirs, or, a little brat in an SUV with 800# doors. Actually, it's pretty tough for a door to hit that far back along the body so it just as likely coulda' been a shopping cart. A couple of the lots I was on did have a grade of sorts.

All this is just heads-up for you's that they're out to get you.

Looks like a shopping cart to me.

Some idiot hit and ran my 91 OCC in my dad's driveway, and it is not even on a deadend street. It is at the body shop now, and will cost me about $400.

You may be able to get a paintless dent removal guy to fix it. I had a couple dents like that in my front door, and I could not tell where they were after the guy was done. It cost me $50.

S**t like this makes me HATE parking in lots of certain stores. I go out of my way to park close to a cart return and a little farther away from the doors so there is no one too close to me and hopefully no loose carts that overly self-important, lazy, impotent @$$holes leave out to dent or scratch my car.
