And this is my fault…how?

April 3rd, 2011 · 77 comments

Okay, so I’ve gotta give Scott credit here. I know I’m not the only driver who’s had the frustrating experience of returning to your parked car to find some mysterious new dent or scratch with the perpetrator long gone and no note in sight. Or perhaps you’ve been on the other side of things, and justified not leaving a note because the idiot had parked too damn close or in an non-legal parking spot or whatnot.

And yet, says our puzzled submitter, “I was pulled fully into a parking space, well within the white lines, with space on both sides. Why does he try to ‘kind of’ make it my fault?”

(I’m guessing it’s because he’s “kind of” passive-aggressive.)

Sorry! I dinged your car, but you kind of deserved it the way you parked. My # is [redacted]. Call if you have any issues. :)   -Scott

Of course, I’d say that’s still preferable to receiving a note from someone who’s “kind of” a total asshole…

Hi, my name is Jack I accidently [sic] hit your car & someone saw me so I'm pretending to right down my details. SORRY. Jack

    Maybe Scott’s just really fat so it doesn’t matter HOW someone parks – just the fact that someone parked next to him was enough.

    As for Jack, I wonder how many times he’s been in this situation. He seems to have the douchebaggery thing down.

      Jack better hope that there are no nosy people around. I knew a cop who had an awesome story of some a-hole doing what Jack did, except an old lady saw the whole thing and wrote down the license plate and description of car and driver and went out when the note-writer was gone and left her own note.

    heh.. I’ve seen plenty of people “park just fine,” meaning the front end of their car was perfectly within the white lines while their car-ass oozed into another parking spot like a crooked thong booty. Not saying that’s what Submitter #1 did necessarily, but it happens. Kudos to the note writer for owning the ding.

      ugh, and i’ve heard from plenty of people who ‘drive just fine’ until their vehicle mysteriously collides with a large, stationary object, at which point it is definitely the parked car’s fault.

      those people also have really strong psychological defence mechanisms which protect them from reality.

    Hey,

    Listen I apologize for backing into the front end of your car and leaving your bumper completely damaged.. You see I have horrible vision and I kind of failed my drivers test 10 times so I have no license or insurance or any other information that I can give you.. here is my # 571-645-7861 (not really MY #) call if you have issues… not that I should give you any information anyways since you took up a little bit of parking space so you kind of had it coming, learn how to park better next time. I should say I’m sorry for backing into you but I feel you should apologize first since you caused me to back into you…

    Hope you have a splended day :)!

    I still remember the one time I scraped someone else’s car while parking. I left my number, but not my name- later on I check my voicemail, and lo and behold, it’s someone I know. I’m just trying to imagine what would have happened if I had gone on my way, and had to feign ignorance while they told their story about some jerk who hit their car and drove off. (Me: “No info or anything? What a cad!”) And that’s why… you always leave a note!

    I used to have an old 70s era Camaro. It had freakin’ huge doors compared to the 90s era cars all around me. Modern parking spots are not made with old cars in mind, especially 2-door old cars!

    So, I took great pains to park, if I could, where I could open the door without hitting anyone or having to slither out of the door. My parents taught me to respect other people’s property, so I’d park at the leftmost spot of a row or something. (Or, when my left door lock froze up and I had to use the right door, the rightmost spot.) If I couldn’t find a space that allowed me to open my door enough to get out, I carried a towel in the backseat that I’d wrap around the door edge and ease it into the other car. The towel was also useful for all those fluid leaks and whatnot that the car had, or when the defroster crapped out.

    One time, I parked cleanly in my space. A woman pulled in next to me and her kid opened her door with such force that it slammed into my car. She apologized profusely to me and I just had to laugh. See, I paid $800 for that car. And it was exactly what you’d expect from an $800 car. That door ding just added to the character at that point, but her door edge was really warped. We called it even and I left.

    But if it happened to me now, with a new car that cost a hell of a lot more than $800 and is totally dingless, I would be filled with seething rage. Seething. Rage.

      Dings are going to happen. The only way to avoid them are park in no man’s land at the VERY back of the parking lot. If you park next to people eventually a car door might get knocked into your car. One time I had the car door open and a HUGE wind came up and literally SLAMMED the door into the car next to mine! I was like WTF!? Never had or heard of that happening before but it happened. That was not really anyone’s fault, that was freaking mother nature!

      Thanks. Meri.

      Chesire Cat, I actually do park out in “no man’s land” if I have a car. If there is a point that is farthest from other cars, rouge shopping carts, and bad drivers who can’t negotiate a turn, that’s where I am. I park specifically to reduce the likelihood of dings. I also don’t care if it’s freak wind or carelessness, don’t ding my car and not leave a note with your information. They don’t “just happen”. What I find odd is when I go back to my car and the lot is half empty but there’s a car parked next to me in no-man’s land. It’s almost always a minivan or some other vehicle obviously used for hauling around the family.

      On my motorcycle, I’ll park any old place. You gotta really try to ding a motorcycle parked in the center of a car-sized spot. I’ve noticed that people tend to be extra careful around bikes. I don’t know if it is because they are afraid of tipping it over or if they are afraid of the stereotypical biker. Either way, I win.

    “Scott” reminds me of the man who hit my car when I stopped for a yellow light. Apparently he expected me to go through it, and when we pulled off to the side he tried again and again to make it my fault because I was following the law. :-/ Thankfully he was going slowly so the car wasn’t damaged and we weren’t hurt.

      Here in Texas they expect you to pull over onto the shoulder when you’re on country roads, to let them pass.
      They expect me (driving 65mph in a 65mph zone) to drive on the shoulder, so they can speed.

      Right. As if I’m going to risk a flat tire, so your dumbass can pass me.

      I don’t think so. I mean, hey, if I can easily pull over onto a nice roomy clear area, then okay, I”ll slow down and pull over.
      But, I’m not going to drive 65 on the shoulder, nor am I going to slam my brakes on to be able to stop in some tiny pull over area on an unknown road at night.
      I’ll slow down, so that you can pass me more easily, but if you’re a total dumbass and tail me really closely, you won’t be able to pass. That is your fault.
      I actually had a guy tailing me so closely when I was going 70 in a 65mph zone, on a shoulderless country road that I just kept very slowly reducing my speed, so that he could pass me. He kept tailing me. 50, 40, 30, 20, 10 mph, and this ass keeps tailing me, doesn’t take the opportunity to pass. I actually came to a STOP. the idiot sits there behind me. WTF? We sat there for about 15 seconds, and he finally reversed and passed me.
      ps – Here in Austin, you best not go just because your light is green. I don’t think I’ve ever had a green light that hasn’t had someone running a red through it.

      I think some people must have brought that notion to Illinois, because I was almost killed recently when some asshole behind me decided that 10 over the limit wasn’t fast enough and decided to pass me. However, there was a car in the incoming lane. Instead of slowing down and getting back behind me so that car could pass, this idiot instead decided to run the other car off the road.

    On the other hand.. I dinged a couple cars when i was just learning to drive/park. I left a note in each case and paid several hundo in the course of it. the last car was a big one, done with my bumber – anyway the guy submitted an insurance claim 2 months later that said I had done all sorts of damage, in an effort to cover up another accident he had been in.

    That, coupled with the fact that i’ve collected dings a-plenty without ever getting a note makes me disinclined to leave notes in the future.

    I mean, I’ll play nice, but not if i’m the only one.

    Well, I know it sucks when people do stuff like that, but you didn’t actually PAY for that, did you? I’ve heard of multiple instances where someone tried that and the insurance company dismissed the claim entirely. If they wait that long, that’s really fishy, and I doubt anyone would expect them to be honest. You should’ve pressed the issue with the insurance company.

    And if you park like crap, you need to prepare for the consequences. You act like it’s a matter-of-fact thing that you have dinged cars, but I have never hit another car, in the parking lot or on the road. It’s not a necessary quality of learning to drive- I’m 19 and have only been at it for less than 3 years, and I’ve driven tens of thousands of miles in that time. People don’t deserve to be damaged by people like you just because you aren’t careful. You are NOT the victim here, so own up to your mistakes!

    Sometimes if people park super over the line or super stupid, then it probably is their fault they get dinged. Just saying. I have had people with GIANT SUVs have no idea how to park them and park super close to me. I have no qualms about opening my door into their car in order to get my kids in or myself in comfortably. I am not squeezing in ackwardly just to avoid dinging your car with my door. Don’t have such a huge car you can’t park or don’t park over the line next time.

I have two kids and I drive a small sedan. Why do you need such a giant car? Also learn to park.

      I don’t slam the door hard on purpose into their car. I open the door as I normally would or softer than I normally would. Why should I tiptoe around because you parked stupid? If I park stupid I expect to get whatever happens. I don’t park stupid though. I am the type who will get back in the car to fix it if I parked funny rather than leave it parked messed up. That is just how I roll.

      I stand by that if you are very worried about your car being perfect than park in the very back not next to anyone because shit happens.

      Wanted to add in case you are not familiar with it. If you cannot open a car door all the way or most of the way open it is extremely hard to lift a child into the car. Especially if you have the baby carrier car seat to put in the car. Those things are huge and you really have to have the door all the way open. It is not a matter of just squeezing into the car. You need the door open so if you are parked close, my door is going into your car. Sorry but thats is what has to happen. I will try to do it gently.

      So what should I do then? Stand out there with my kids and wait for the person to come move their car before we get in? When I say you need to be able to open the door all the way for baby car seats, that is not an exagerration. Nor is it an exagerration that the car door needs to be mostly open for my toddlers to climb in. They are small but the way our car door is they can’t climb up from the side. They have to attack in straight on to climb up due to the shortness of their legs and the car going up from the side so they are not tall enough. It really is not possible or extremely hard to get in if we can’t open the door. Why should we be stranded or put in a tough spot because someone parked shitty or bought a giant car that takes up the entire parking space and then some? If we could get a van with the nice sliding doors that don’t take up room we would. We can’t afford it so you know not a lot of other options.

      Don’t park next to douchebags, then!

      I’m kinda weird about things like this. It’s like I respect other people’s property or something.

      Chesire Cat, why don’t you carry a towel so that you can at least open the car door into the other vehicle gently? A soft edge is less likely to cause a ding.

      Not a bad idea. Never thought about that before. Partly probably because I am laid back about stuff like that. I don’t drive clunkers but I am also not going to faint if my door gets dinged.

    I used to drive my ex boyfriends Subaru Legacy that was in really rough shape. When you have to duck tape both your bumpers up as well are your side view mirrors, and the car is covered in dents and scratches.. You seriously stop giving a shit whether or not you slam the door into someone else s car because they were too stupid and inconsiderate to stay in their spot in side the lines. Plus my ex was a huge jerk so I guess it works both ways : )

    If someone is parked horrible in a spot, you don’t know if it was that person’s fault or if they had to park over more because of another person’s crappy parking. How do you know who the actual bad parker is? And so what?
    If you were at a grocery store and had to run in for an emergency, would you want someone to give you a little slack? I’ve been hit in parking lots twice now and yet, if I hit someone I would sure as hell leave a note. That being said, Jack’s note made me crack up since it was pretty awesome that he took the time to say why he was writing the note.

    So, living in NH can make for some rough commutes during snow season, but what really sucks are the smaller lanes on streets caused by snowbanks that grow with each storm. One of the busy streets in my city has parking spots that are horizontal to the street (can you picture?) So, I’m carefully driving in my lane when I see this huge-ass truck sticking out of its parking space, most of its rear in my lane. With seconds to spare, it was either bump the car in the oncoming lane or scrape against the truck. Neither of those options were good, but I scraped the side of my ride, barely hurting the truck which was parked half-way in the street. I wish I had left a note scolding them for parking that huge-ass quad cab half way–well, I’ve crankily rambled enough. Why doesn’t anyone do song parodies any more?
    Take it away, Cee Lo

    I see you drivin’ round town in that monster truck and I’m like
    Fuck you
    I guess that driving on 4 tires just wasn’t enough so I’m like
    Fuck you

    I didn’t think that through, and I am not committed to the bit enough to come up with more lyrics to express my annoyance with that driver. Anyone?

      I said I’m sorry
      I can’t afford a Ferrari
      But that don’t mean you can park right there

      I guess He’s in Nascar
      and I’m more a defensive driver
      cause the way he slams into my car ain’t fair

      I pity the fool who parks in front of you!
      Oh shit he backed into me, and goes to blame me!

      Oooo I got some news for you,
      Oooh I really hate your PA notes right now!

      Um, bad mood, why couldn’t you brake and wait for oncoming traffic to clear so you could go around the truck? That’s what the rest of the driving world does when it finds its lane blocked by something. :?

      Anglo, where were you when I needed that advice? Maybe I was trying to make a statement like, “I’ll scrape my own car before I brake to accommodate your bad park!”

    Makes me feel lucky. The last car I owned, someone dinged it, turned out to be a barrister, who was very honest, which was just as well as I was a solicitor and it was a small town.

    Now I live in a big town with public transport and no need for a car. I left a month after the ding. Unfortunately my insurance company didn’t just write it off, even though the damage was more than the car was worth!
