    See, if I'd been the one that had hit it I definitely would have gotten out to check and apologize, especially if I knew they'd seen me! I would only exchange insurance details if it was necessary but there's no way I'd just drive off without checking.

    Even just a note on the windscreen would suffice!

    I get the whole 'that's what bumpers are there for' attitude but surely it's common sense and courtesy to get out to check and apologize. At least to make sure there's no identifying paint from your car .

    I thought bumpers were only meant to be used like that in a carnival ...

    OP I'd be fuming if I was you! I am married to a panel beater/spray paunter - if it hit your car enough to make it lurch, I am almost 100% certain that there would be damage! Make sure you get it checked over by a professional especially being a new car, you dont want to lose value because of someone elses mistake!

    Your neighbour must have had something big going on for him to drive off. That's kind of a social taboo

    Omg!!!!!! DH just went over to speak to them. He doesn't think there's any damage but he just wanted to ask why the husband didn't get out to check for damage or apologize and I guess pretty much let them know this doesn't fly with us as DH said this guy does this every morning, moves his car to that spot, loads the baby, rushes off, so he didn't want him to think he could continue to 'bump' our car and it'd be ok.

    The husband wasn't home but the wife was. She told DH I was emotional and irrational this morning, that I didn't know what I wanted and how did we even know it was them, it was dark.

    ??????!!!!!!!!! I know it was them because I pay attention to my neighbors. I know them and their cars and I saw him running in and out of his house and into that car! And emotional and irrational?! I was frustrated that he'd just driven off and wanted to let her know I knew and that we needed to speak about this later but had a baby upstairs and couldn't get into right then and there.

    I am so fuming right now! I'd gotten over it, didn't even really think DH should go over there but he wanted to. I thought it'd just end with an apology and explanation and that'd be that but instead she was a total cow!

    If it were me I would have reported it to the police (he left the scene of an accident) and also to your insurance company (right after he did it) because things like this happen and we like to think we can trust people but some people like your neighbours are scum

    Wow

    What a poor reaction from your neighbours!

    They don't sound like nice, reasonable people to be honest. Common decency seems to be lacking.
