Hit n Run

So my 3 is one month old, and somebody hit n run it while it was parked in my apartment parking lot.


Then, yesterday, I witnessed another hit n run right in front of my apartment building: guy hit this couple's SUV, got out, talked to them for a few minutes, then took off (how stupid!). Obviously not a good place for cars. You'd think that cars would be ok, with all the chrome wheels and aftermarket stuff on them, but I guess they target particular people, who knows.

Didn't get hit and run, the wife side swiped it backing out of the driveway. Less than 6 weeks old.

I don't think it will, already have the estimate and working with a body shop through progressive, they pushed it to the front of the line. Actually, I hope it takes a long time, cuz I'm looking at moving out of the state, and I don't want my car until I'm ready to leave. Local kids were messing with my rental last night. And yep, I live in the city and hate it. But what can I do, salary doesn't exactly cover luxury living.

Goodness C... You just got to Maryland. Are you going to keep the job but move away or are you looking for a new job already?

If you are staying at Hopkins, a commute down I83 from PA might not be too bad. My brother-in-law lives in Stewartstown right over the state line. It's much cheaper up there.

I think I'm gonna look for a new job. And right now, I am really close to work, only 2miles, I didn't want "action" I wanted something affordable and now i'm paying for it.
