People suck these days

Went to visit Mom. Stopped at an out of the way convenient store on the way back to get Powerball ticket. Parked on 114, just clear of the crosswalk at the intersection. Came out and found someone had hit my Tahoe and run..... Left rear corner bumper and tail light. Not major but still going to cost me deductible.... People just suck. I hope the insurance company can get their azz off the bank across the street, assuming they have a camera.

Sorry Ross. FYI, you should see my Pickup. Passenger side all scraped with white paint back during the Summer. Fast forward to Oct and I'm at Lincoln Mall, and I come out to find my passenger front fender crumbled and my front bumper half ripped off.

No note, nothing in either case. Mall cameras showed a white pickup hit me but they never got the plate. %##@ IT. Truck is 15 years old and just my work truck but even so....

No boat, back in the suds.

Sorry Ross. Been there. A moving truck sideswiped my van last year and opened it up like a sardine can. Cost me $500.

If you were a real artist you would have covered the hole with plywood and painted sardines on it

It's sucks that most people revel in getting away with something, rather than taking responsibility for their actions. It is one of the reasons we need cameras everywhere...... to get to the truth.

People who can hit and run are low lifes and will probably get what they deserve at some point in there miserable lives. Hope the bank camera's catch them and they pay for more than your damage.

A Craftsman knows how to fix his mistakes.




Yes Ross people do suck
I thought insurance won't charge a deductible on that kind of stuff

The United States Constitution does not exist to grant you rights; those rights are inherent within you. Rather it exists to frame a limited government so that those natural rights can be exercised freely.

I make multiples of the same design very very well and put a great deal of effort into my techniques of the trade.

An artist cares more about the emotions envolked by the person who views their work than how they actually make their work and is far less apt to make multiples of a design/concept.

I ain’t starving.

That's what happens when you have so many turds driving leased vehicles (because they can't afford to actually buy and maintain one) and who "learned" all their driving habits from video games!

Driving these days is an exercise in futility with all the a-holes on the roads.

You'll know who they are because they'll be the ones that honk if you don't drive through yellow light, funeral processions or when an emergency vehicle is approaching....all because they NEED to be somewhere important (like drug dealer, liquor store or to play the lottery with their welfare money).

I am a legend in my own mind!
