How do you deal with haters? v. trash that doesn't care you drive a nice car
Ive had my car for a year and a half (06 C230) and its just bound to happen, I found a dent the size of a quarter next to my gas cap cover. I was able to go in through the trunk and tap it out. Its barely noticeable but the thing that bothers me is that it looks absolutely nothing like a door ding or a shopping cart ding. It looks intentional. What bangs into a car with a sharp pointed tip 4ft off the ground?
But its not even the intentional stuff either. One day I was sitting in my car at a park waiting on my wife and some tourists pulled up in a Cadillac SUV. They nailed the piss out of my car when the person seated behind the driver open the door. And whats worse is that they laughed, until I got out of the car and asked what the fuck their problem was. Their response "Chill out bro we're on vacation!!!!"
If they weren't driving a rental I swear I would have destroyed their car, I probably would have even destroyed the rental but there were no marks left.
Im not quite sure where the ding happened, as I noticed it in the morning after I went to work so it may very well have been a door or a shopping car.
I live in an apartment complex (only 8 more months till I move into my house thank God) and some of the people here are straight dirt. I find myself constantly looking out my window and making sure no one is screwing with my car. This morning I went to go to Home Depot and there was a truck parked so close to me I had to get in through the passenger side. Its really starting to bug me that it just sits out there in the open all night and lately I've been getting alot of "looks" from punk 20 somethings as I drive through the parking lot.
I have a $250 comprehensive deductible. Just for my own peace of mind, how does that work? Say I go out there and my emblem is ripped off and theres a gash down the side. Call the cops, they do a police report and I file a claim with Geico? But then won't my insurance payments go up? I'm under 25 but have zero speeding tickets, accidents, etc.
It just really irritates me that because these people don't want to make an effort to better their lives they'll try to bring you down to their level. I wish I could show all of them the beautiful garage that this is going to be sitting in every night soon.
Does anyone else know what I'm talking about?
