The rules for running in to my car

Okay, here are the rules when you rear-end me:

  1. You start by giving me your name, phone number and insurance information.
  2. Don't tell me how bad the damage to my car is. I'll decide if it's "not that bad."
  3. If you don't want to use your insurance then you do have to offer to pay for it.
  4. I pick the body shop.
  5. At least act like you're sorry.

Seriously. I've rear-ended cars and I've been rear-ended but I've never had one like just now. Heading south on Huron Church waiting for the light at Tecumseh, an Accord that already had a couple dings in it didn't stop or started too soon. She didn't apologize. She told me how little the mark was. She volunteered nothing. I get that it's not fun to pay for stuff but you have to own up to what you do.

I got her information and I told her I'm going to my body shop. It doesn't look like a big deal but when your car is only made of a few big pieces of plastic, sometimes the plastic cracks. And you can't weld plastic. So if anything's being replaced then I don't intend to be on the hook for it.
