I went to Sam's this afternoon to pick up giant-sized versions of the necessities. I parked in a normal spot facing a Cadillac Escalade... a guy was loading items in the back while his wife was sitting in the driver's seat. Before I had time to even get out of my truck the Escalade lurched forward and SMASHED INTO MY TRUCK!
My first thought was "SON OF A BITCH!" My next thought was, "I JUST installed a billet grill YESTERDAY!" (The same one that's on the truck in the TW banner.) Then, again... "SON OF A BITCH!"
For the life of me I can't figure out why the car was on AND IN GEAR! Can somebody please explain that to me? She wasn't about to drive (her husband was still loading stuff) and I had just pulled in, so she was going to have to drive in reverse anyway. Why in the F*** was the car in DRIVE?
Here's the WOW part: I get out and walk around to the front... the Caddy's pointed bumper hit my truck directly on the Alabama A front license plate. There's a slight crack in the plate, but NO OTHER DAMAGE TO THE TRUCK! Their stupid-ass Caddy, on the other hand, might need a new bumper. About a quarter-size spot on the tip of their bumper has no paint and is visibly damaged, and (more importantly) the bumper cracked from top to bottom.
I'm more and more impressed with this truck every day (not to mention less impressed with GM products today).
I have their insurance information. I'm taking the truck to a mechanic I trust on Monday to have him give a good look behind the bumper and elsewhere to make sure nothing cracked/broke that will give me problems down the road. Anything wrong will be fixed at their expense, of course.
