Hit & Runs – What can I say?!? See that picture above, that’s my car. How did it happen?
Here’s the story:
I was at my dentist office, and if you live here in Miami, you know that a lot of the parking lots leave barely any room for your car to fit in and get out. As I was rushing out of the parking lot to meet up to study for my exam, I noticed the scratches and small dent on the side of my car. There was no one next to me, which means, they hit on the way out and kept on going. I continued on my way to study, and when I got home my boyfriend and I tried taking off the black parts on the car, most of it came out, believe it or not, it was worse. The black residue is so hard to come out that I need someone to buff it out. It also left a small dent, which is hard to see in the picture, so either today or tomorrow M&M Dents is going to come out to my job to give me an estimate on how much it is going to cost to fix my car. I’ll give you an update on how much and how well of a job they do if I decide to go with them. They were recommended by a friend, so we’ll see.
I don’t understand why people choose to run after hitting someone. I just read on the news about a man who was killed on the side of the road, also a hit and run. Of course this type of hit and run is ten times more awful than any other kind. This person took a life, and chose to just leave the person there to die, perhaps if they stopped they could have saved their life. In my case it was only my car, no one was hurt except for maybe now my wallet.
Have you ever been a victim of a hit and run? Tell me about it!?! Did they catch the person??? In my case I didn’t file a report, because for what? Hopefully it will be quick to fix and hopefully it won’t cost too much.
