Sometimes the bear wins…

It’s been one of those mornings. Went outside to find out that someone had backed into the side of my car. Front door doesn’t open properly now (I can get in, but just). Our insurance company is PEMCO, and they were fantastic on the claims processing – everything was very straightforward and as easy as it could possibly be for me. Still a pain in the butt, but that happens upon occassion I suppose.

I’m still pissed off about it, but trying to be philosophical.  I have a fairly high suspicion that this happened when a parent of a student from John Hay Elementary school backed their “I can’t see shit” SUV into my car, trying to turn around in the middle of the street. The press in looks like a high bumper, and the paint scuff matches a light color vehicle.
