First blemish on my 3

yesterday afternoon i'm in a parking lot sitting in my car waiting for a couple other cars to pull out before i can. there is some old guy in a mercedes pulling out and i can see that his angle is way off and he's not gonna make it. he pulls back in and starts to pull out again, still, he's way off. at this point his rear end is aiming right at my rear end and i can easily tell that unless he pulls back in he's gonna hit my car trying to get out of the spot. what does he do? he hits my car. so i get out and start to walk up to his car and the old bastard drives off.

i'm not sure if he realized he hit me. it was possible he didn't because the 3 bumper is plastic and gave pretty easy and his car was one of those giant mercedes. i wanted to confront him but i wanted to make sure i got his license plate first. by the time i wrote down his plate he was gone. luckily there was nothing more than a scuff mark on my bumper but i was so friggin pissed, the old bag shouldn't be on the road.

it was probably a good idea that i took his plate as opposed to confronting him because there was a good chance i would have gotten in his face and with my luck the blind bat would have keeled over right there.

Sucks...horns usually work well in that situation, especially if you can tell they're gonna hit you

Oh, didn't realize you were getting out. The 3 horn does suck...get one of those horns that plays La Cucaracha

My first ride was a 1999 S-10. Owned by a 76 year old lady. I got my 3 back 4 days ago. Owned by a 80 year old lady. Seeing a trend here? I fucking HATE old people.

I parked the 3 in boston last weekend for the sox game and someone played bumper cars with it and scraped the shit out of the rear bumper. Unfortunately, it was a hit n run with no witnesses. :-(

Yet another reason as why I park like a mile away from anyone.
