My Tacoma... Hit and Run :(

Im so so so SO upset right now. Im even more angry at myself that I didn't listen to myself. Whenever I go shopping with my fiance, I park far away on purpose because I hate parking anywhere but my garage. I know how people drive and are careless parkers.. especially in big malls or store outlets. Point is, we were going to Costco, I always park at the very back of Costco and it takes about two minutes to walk inside Costco.

Anyways, my fiance said no no no.. lets just park closer... i'm tired.. blah blah blah... anyways I parked close to the entrance after we found a spot. I came out to my truck only to find this.....






$300 For New Bumper...
$250 For Paint, Finish and Install

Cost of Groceries.... $220....

To lazy to walk 2 minutes.... Priceless...

$550 credit towards the cost of the wedding on anything you don't want to spend on that she does. For better or worse right? Sorry man. I feel your pain.

that is just BS. People should own up to their stupidity and just leave a note. Sorry I hit your truck, here is my #. Call me for some cash.

I have a seperate account on my bank for truck modifications, It's a tax free savings account. Anyways, Every pay cheque I put away $300 and it goes into that account. Right now I have about 1800 sitting there, but I want to get everything in ONE SHOT!

Front Bumper, Rear bumper, Skid plates, Lift, Rims, Tires... I'm hoping to do all of that in shot just before next summer It just sucks I have to wait again and again..

Haha well i'm stubborn.. 4 things I LOVE the most in my life..

Friends

I would be mad at myself and whoever hit my truck.. not at my fiance. So right now we're kind of well... not talking.. HAHA! Oh well.. this incident just fueled a few things we need to take care of in the relationship lol

anyways back on track...

truck should be ready for next wednesday =/

The lease is up in 2 years, then i'm going to buy it out .. but for insurance reasons, when I re new my insurance they check out the truck for damages, dents, anything wrong with it because it's also leased/insured for business use for my company. It's complcated.. point is, I have to fix it. I intend to keep the truck, pay it off, maybe in 3 or 4 years buy another rig or something

No... its pay now or pay later. Do it now and you might do it twice.


Its nice to keep your cars pretty and stuff.. I love my vehicles. But I keep it in perspective. I rarely ever have my vehicle on private property. How can I complain, I know what's out there. Doesn't make other people not stupid, but I am ready to come out and find my stuff jacked every time I go outside. I just hope its not.

That sucks! You might go back and ask the manager if any of their cameras are trained on the parking lot.

My parents car got hit in a Walmart lot and I went in and viewed the video. Got a plate number and called their (my parents) insurance company and the insurance went after the other party.

I know I'd go ballistic if that happened and they didn't even leave a note. Glad to hear you are getting "her" fixed... and maybe straightening out some dents in the future Ms.

Man that really blows!!!
Don't hold your Fiance to task it's not her fault, people in parking lots just SUCK big time!!! besides blaming her could haunt you for the rest of your life ( I know I've been married for 34 years and am haunted as hell for all things I've said) On the bright side should be easier to get her to walk the extra few yards the next time though!
