Well it happened

I wish there was another car involved with a stupid distracted driver...or that there was a good story.

They keep moving the light posts in the parking lot at work!

I had to leave my baby wounded in the parking lot and make the walk of shame into work today.

Pictures tonight.

That sucks. I've noticed when I leave work, I'm so brain dead, that several times I have started backing out of my spot without even looking at any mirrors or anywhere but straight ahead. Complete brain numbness after 9 hours of staring at a computer... I've caught myself doing this several times and worry I'll back up into a car or into the huge post that I angle myself between sometimes.

I'm sorry to hear this.

did you take your foot off the brake and roll while in netural?

That must have been a pretty good hit, I bet you were afraid to look....

holy crap thats pretty bad. How fast were you going? Look on the bright side insurance is not involved so your monthly fee wouldnt be increased. Just need a new tail light and a bumper and maybe if you feel like you can pop the top dent out. You should just put a body kit on it and maybe get smoked tail lights.
