this is a rant and I apologize, but I gotta vent a little here....
my wife was recently diagnosed with crps
. she is dealing with a lot of pain right now and is on crutches, cant go to work, and is claiming disability. we have a 4 day trip planned to camp this weekend. I am working 2 jobs right now. one fulltime, and another part time job 4 days a week. since I don't have much free time, my wife has been trying to help me get ready for this weekend (doing what very little she can). she has been driving van since she cant drive a stick shift car right now. she pulled into a local store and found a spot right up front but only way to get into it was to back in. now my wife can drive the wheels off race cars, but the bigger vehicles she has very little experience with. still, she does great for how big the van really is. people without vehicles of this size really have zero clue...
so she parks and hobbles over to get a rascal. as shes waiting to get into the store shes by the customer service desk. she hears some irate lady screaming at the top of her lungs that someone has parked on top of her vehicle and she cant leave the store parking lot. the lady mentions a big white van so my wife tells her that it could be hers if the lady is parked right up front. unfortunately my wife didn't check her park job after parking and just walked in. I have a feeling this wont happen again.
they go out into the lot and the lady is demanding our insurance info, dl license, registration etc. my wife says sure, and I want to see yours knowing that this lady is going for a bs claim. cops are called. right off the bat they can see that their time is being wasted. they ask the lady to move her car so they can access the damage. she resists and according to my wife goes from cop to cop trying to get answers that she wants. then she demands to see surveillance video. the police tell her that they were not going to issue a citation because there was no damage to either vehicle. then the tow truck pulls up....this screwball called a towtruck. by now the cops are getting agitated and tell the lady that its private property and they had no intentions of asking for surveillance tape. crazy lady insists that they watch it so she goes into store and bothers them to see tape. tape confirms that my wife backed into her car. shocker...
this is going on an hour now that this lady is freaking out over NOTHING and the police finally tell her they are leaving and my wife is allowed to actually go about her business in the store. the lady storms off screaming how she is going to sue us for damages. the police tell my wife that this lady is clearing digging for gold and that they will have no issues going to bat for her in court if it ever gets that far.
here is what they all walked out to
yes, my wife kissed the hood. they could almost pull a piece of paper between the tire and the hood. police confirmed that our tire did ZERO damage and noted so on the report.
this lady is lucky it wasn't me she was dealing with. she wouldn't have got ANY personal info from me until the cops showed up. since my wife did provide info to her I have called and put in a warning claim to my insurance company letting them know that this asshat will likely try to turn in a fraudulent claim if for nothing else a towing bill. they have all pix and driver info. I hope she calls and they tell her to piss up a rope.
what is wrong with people? she screamed bloody murder and made it sound like someone parked a monster truck on her hood and she was incapable of leaving the store. this scenario has happened to me in the past. in a beat down oxidized Toyota just like that one. I wanted to stay and at least be a sarcastic ass about learning how to park, but since there was no damage and I was in a hurry, I just left. this lady overreacted for an hour and made my wifes life a living hell for no damn reason. plus ive left all kinds of info out of this story to at least make it a little shorter. id love to post a pic of her license here, but that would likely get me in trouble. anyway, thanks for letting me bitch and moan with font. just had to get this out of my system... at least its our Friday and were headed camping for 4 days!!
