Oops!

We woke up on Sunday morning to someone knocking on our front door VERY timidly!

Joe went to the door and there was a young man standing there who mumbled something like "Ummm...I just hit your car". Joe went outside him to look at his truck when the young man said "No, the car". Uh-oh. Joe knew he was in big trouble now!!

So, Joe came in to fetch me so that I could go out and look at the damage. It really wasn't much. The tail light was cracked and that's it!



I think (if I remember correctly) the first words out of my mouth were "I'm very upset that my new car is broken, but I'm not mad at you at ALL"! I was just so happy that the this guy was honest enough to confess what he had done.

My car will be fixed, at no cost to me, thank goodness! I KNOW I was very lucky.

Wow that really is wonderful! It bites your car got hit but seriously it is so wonderful to have had the driver come and tell you promptly. Rock on! And good luck getting it fixed.

What a great guy! I've heard of too many hit and run accidents lately. I'm glad you weren't one of them!

There are not too many honest young men like him around... I'm glad your car is getting fixed.

Lucky you that he stopped, and for such small damage.

Someone side swiped our car in a parking lot, tore off all the trim, ripped off the mirror and totally bashed in the side of the car, and then they just left. Le sigh.

Wow... at least the guy was honest enough to tell you that he did something. Hard to find people this honest these days.

Ok, for the honesty -- he gets major points. I'd still be mad he hit the car though! As for the photos -- enjoy the process. You know, you could do the "learn something new every week" and practice what you've learned for the rest of that week's photos...just an idea.
