Car trouble

I finally decided to get an estimate on the big dent in the side of my car.
It happened while I was parked at my upholstery class in Boston...
so, yeah, a long time ago.
I still don't know why I didn't do something about it at the time.
I hated that dent!
My car was pristine before that loser decided to hit me and leave.

But my family made me think it wasn't a big deal and could be easily fixed.
I knew I would have a big deductible if I sent it through insurance.
And we were in the process of doing the whole move to Utah, so I was busy I guess.
I just kept thinking that I would fix it "someday" and that it wouldn't be that bad.

I finally got the estimate today and
it's going to cost a freaking fortune to fix it!
and I've probably waited too long for insurance to help.
So what this means is...I will never get it fixed.

Boo Hoo!

I know that in the scheme of things this is not a big deal.
But it is just one of those moments where you wish you could go back and do it a little different.

Especially since the dent is now starting to rust where the paint got all messed up.


Maybe when I have enough dents on the thing I will just spray it with spray paint and get all artsy about it.
Until then, I will have to learn to accept and love my little dented car.

  1. I backed into a wrought iron fence when we were house hunting. We had to pay the guy $1250 to fix it and ended up just paying him cash instead of using insurance, but now I'm kind of wishing I had gone through insurance so I could have gotten my bumper fixed too...
