I had just left The Dance Shop (in the Hawthorne Square Shopping Center) after ordering my black character shoes and was on my way to see my mom at her work. So, after looking both ways and nearly being hit by two cars who were speeding through the parking lot, I backed out of my parking space. Just as I was nearly pulled out and about to pull away...BAM!!! This stupid woman in a Dodge Durango smashes into my left rear panel. I panicked and pulled back into my space to assess the damage and get out of the way of oncoming traffic. Should have called the cops, but didn't. We exchanged insurance information and both left. I told my mom and dad about it and we called my insurance agent at State Farm and told him what happened. The damage estimate is about $1,000.
Best part? The woman had her husband call my dad later that night (since he's co-signer on my title and knows more about cars than I do) and trys to tell my dad that the accident was MY FAULT. Simply not possible. Just using the evidence of how bad the damage was and where it was located, (I hit her just to the right of center on her rear bumper, next to the license plate) there is NO way I could have hit her. So now the insurance companies get to have a lovely duke-em-out to see who's liable. Of course, if I lose, I still have a $500 deductible, which is about a quarter of what the car is worth. Yippee.
I fucking HATE stupid people.
