The Volvo has a Boo-Boo

8 Jun

So Andrew doesn’t even own the car for a week and someone rear-ends him while he was stopped at a red light!  No worries about Andrew – he was not hurt at all. Apparently, a guy driving a MAC truck with a flatbed trailer let off his clutch and hit the back of the Volvo.  It damaged the bumper and cracked a tail light.  $1000 to repair!  Now I know why people would always say not to hit a BMW, Volvo, Mercedes…

The guy who owns the truck totally has to pay for it.  It’s just crazy and kind of funny because Andrew has a terrible track record when it comes to cars.  (None of it is his fault he will be sure to tell you!)  He wrecked his so-new-it-was-built-for-him Chevy S10 ZR2 pickup before we made the first payment on it.  He totaled our first Chevy Malibu Maxx and now this!  We joke that every new car we get should go to me first.  So far, I’ve only wrecked one.  (Well, two if you count that rental car!)  Hopefully, I haven’t just jinxed myself!

    Holy cow! He does have a bad track record with cars. This makes me feel stupid about being extremely pissed off earlier this week when I saw that someone hit our car in a parking lot and didn't leave a note. There isn't even a dent, just some paint scraped off our bumper. But it is a boo-boo in my nice, pretty, Highlander!

    I saw the picture of your boo-boo on Jason's site! That stinks! I actually think it's worse for you because at least with Andrew's situation the person who caused the damage couldn't sneak off like the person who hit your ride. What an a-hole!

    That's terrible! Glad all the trillion air bags didn't go off, and very glad no one was hurt. My poor car has a nasty scrape, and it'll cost us about $700 to fix. Unfortunately, it's our fault (actually, it was a badly designed parking garage, but I don't think the damage is worth suing), so it's our bill. Oh well!

    Don't forget the ever-popular drive-by/sniper shooting at Kennywood.
