Well, my bimmer sustained some body damage after getting in a minor scuffle with a Wrangler's tow bar and losing. It happened in a school parking lot at the end of the day during that mad blitz for the exit. There was some crazy mexican chick trying to edge in in front of me, so I kept abnormally close to the Jeep in front of me, so as to block her out. unfortunately for me and my Bimmer, the Jeep stopped abruptly and I hit his tow bar at 2 or 3 mph. No damage was done to his vehicle, avoiding messy insurance claims. I have a dent on the hood, about 1 inch below and 2 inches to the left of the Roundel. No paint damage, thankfully. I'll just have to see if I can get it pulled. If not, ths may be the perfect excse to nab a carbon fiber hood.

I hear that. I adhere to a strict 2 second rule, myself (even though the "defensive driving" claims that 3 seconds is necessary. Maybe if you have a reaction time of a boneless 98 year old man ex-drug addict stuck in quicksand with alzheimers). Better to be safe than sorry.

Yes, Deuce is right, there is a lesson to be learned. Better let that person edge her way in, then pray she gets into an accident somewhere far away from you.
I do that a lot when people are driving like retards in their SUVs. I let them pass me without signaling, driving with the axles almost at their breaking point - then I follow them from afar and hope to watch them wipe out, flip over several times, and then crash into a tree so I can stop by, and then piss on their vehicle.
So far they've been lucky, or died too far from my route for me to bother pissing on them.

well, the dent is fairly minor, but there is only one way to learn this lesson - and I learned it.

and no, she wasn't hot. she was some stuck-up mexican ho with more stuff in her hair than oil in my engine, and she was driving a beat-up old saturn.

Yeah, I usually just chill out and let the crazy drivers peel out and go 40 in the parking lot to try and get .2 seconds ahead of everyone else, not worth it IMHO. Ive seen way too many accidents in my schools parking lot to trust any drivers there. Good luck with the repairs

Hheeyyyy, that sounds like the same woman that totalled my friends focus and didn't have insurance and who smacked into another friends celica! ALso sounds like the wife of the illegal mexican dude who ran into the back of MY car! (No damage, lucky for them! )

Yea, note to self: left those crazies cut in front of you and stay far away... of course that's not always so easy where I'm from in CA...

My sympathies.

This sounds familiar? Like Delmarco's situation...in NYC.
