My baby got a boo boo!

Well, I just got back from a road trip that over trippled the miles on my car... took a drive from washington, through Oregon, Idaho, Utah, Nevada, California, back through Oregon and back home (well, it was a two week trip, but a LOT of driving). Well, unfortunately (very unfortunately) while staying with family in So Cal, my mother-in-law, while backing out of her garage, wasn't paying attention and bumped my front right fender when my car was parked in her driveway. Needless to say, this really pissed me off, and at least i wasn't there at the time. At least i know who did it, and she is going to pay to have it fixed. It didn't do any structural damage, thankfully, but the fender, front bumper, and the marker light will all have to be replaced. (plus my stongard will have to be replaced on those pieces). I just got back home today, so i will probably be finding out how much this is going to cost her, and more importantly, how long it will take to get the parts, tomorrow. Below are a couple shots i snapped of the car yesterday morning before we hit the road again, so you can all share in my pain (misery loves company, after all).

Talking

One great feature that my wife had when i first meet her was
NO MOTHER IN LAW , even thoug i have heard all great things about her , deep down i was relieved not to have to put up with the MOTHER IN LAW .

Most of the other grils i dated i either could stand them or they had a pain in the **** mother .

Maybe its her way of paying you back for mariyng into the family , anyhow sorry about the car being squashed .

That sucks!!! I do feel your pain. Has anyone else noticed that this car is a rock chip magnet? I've gotten two in the windshield and one on the hood already!

While backing out of a parking space next to a pillar, my mom took out my passenger side mirror as well as some paint on the front panel and door.

It turned out ok, though... I replaced that car with a nice, new RX-8 :D

Dude- that bites

I would freak if I was in your shoes. That's a nasty looking scratch on the hood too.

Word of advice, if the thread is a couple months old, good idea to let it die....

Hey thanks for the advice! I guess I should apologize for not checking the date of the last person to reply to this thread too huh? Here's a better idea; PM the mod to remove the thread if you dont want to see anymore posts.

Not to come off like a jerk- but nobody is posting in here that regularly to begin with...

No need for the sarcasm, I was just trying to point something out that is standard forum etiquette. Check the timestamps between your message and the last - a full 2 months. If you don't have anything significant to add to the thread you should just let it die.

No prob man- but no need for lecturing on forum etiquette either. I'm not **** enough to be checking timestamps on posts... it was at the top of the list- enough said.
