I was sitting in my car in the aircon on Facebook just before Xmas on my lunch break. I saw a few cars up a young girl on her L plates and her mum I am gathering get in the car. The young girl reversed out and room out the whole side of her car on the 4x4 next to her the mum fit out looked around to see if anyone saw swapped spots with the daughter and quickly drove off with half the car hanging off.
They didn't see me sitting in my car writing all the details down lol. From where I was the 4x4 didn't look damaged but when I went and had a look there was a deep scratch all the way up and the really nice mag was badly scratch so I left my details and the other cars detains.
The lady called me in tears telling me how great full she was and went on to tell me how she had just lost her husband the week before hand and how I had made her day not having more stress to worry about.
I felt a little sorry for the young girl driving and was so agree that the adult teaching her would teach her the wrong way to deal with that situation.

I've been hit in a carpark. Twice.
First time, I was waiting behind this guy who for some reason thought he was driving a semi and wouldn't turn the corner. He started to go at one point and then stopped and reversed back a bit. I had a speed bump between us so I just stayed in the same place. When he eventually took off, he was still in reverse and went smack into my car!! Lucky someone else on the footpath saw this too as he tried to blame it on me (i was young). Then when I was demanding his details he said he had no license so I whipped out my mobile to call the police and he eventually gives me his details!
Second time I was parked at work and I left late and there was a note on my car saying the driver had left but this was the rego. Went to the police and they told me there was a warrant out on the guy who the car was registered to. I called my insurance and then a week later, I was parked in a different spot at work when I got a note left on my car and my front lights smashed in and the note said to call off the insurance and police otherwise next time it'll be me on the ground! Called police, the idiot had his fingerprints all over the note and also then got charged for damage, intimidation and something else. I ended up being escorted by security to and from work each day. So embarrassing but lucky at the time. What a loser!

If they'll call you and give you a quote, make sure you take that quote to the place of business they choose and double check that it's correct. I was listening to the radio the other day and people have the habit of getting the smashed part of the car fixed as well as other "little" things they've always wanted to do. I've had it happen to a couple of my friends as well.
You did the right thing by leaving your number, just make sure they do the right thing by you.

I'm torn n the leave a note issue... if i am parking/leaving a park in a decent manner an your badly parked car gets damage tuff luck. If i am parking / leaving in a decent manner and your decently parked car gets damaged then i will leave a note.
I expect the samd too. Also if you insist on parking your car close enough that my doors cannot be opened your own fault. However if you open your door onto my car while i am in it and don't even apologise.... expect to get yelled at lady... even if you have had a hard day and your 5 yo twins are running late for their own maccas party and you need to get the baby out of car seat. I managed to get out of my car without hitting yours and my doors are bigger then yours and i had to open mine wider.
XOOMing in to the hub from the couch.
