Rant #1: Lies and the Lying Liars who tell them

Don't you just HATE freakin' LIARS? Especially when one hits your parked car while trying to pass another car ON THE RIGHT in a ONE LANE STREET, then acts all pissy when you refuse to take his oh-so-generously proffered $50 for the damage because he "didn't have time" to give you his insurance info? Then, while he finally consents to exchange the info, later tells his insurance company the BALD FACED LIE that you OPENED YOUR CAR DOOR and that's why he hit you? I'm sure that the evidence will bear out our version of the story though since the damage was done to the mirror...otherwise please explain to me how his truck CRACKED OUR MIRROR HOUSING and NEVER TOUCHED THE FREAKIN' DOOR if we had opened it?

If the evidence doesn't bear out our story, would the gentleman* who took a picture with his cell phone of the truck when it appeared the driver might flee the scene please contact us to bear witness because we were dumb enough to wave him on thinking that when Mr. "Im-to-busy-for-this-here's-$50" Jerk had pulled over to come back and discuss the damage with us that he would be honest and forthright about it being ENTIRELY HIS FAULT.**

JERK.

*Yeah, I know it's like a million-billion-gazillion-to-one that this guy would ever happen upon my blog but I figure it couldn't hurt.

**Oh, and if you happen to be a Dooce reader like me and think I'm ripping off her style by TYPING IN CAPS, get over yourself. Some story recaps just require a little added emphasis is all. I'm sure she would agree.

I think it's generally accepted that caps = yelling, and you certainly deserve to have a shout. Because that fellah deserves a KICK IN THE N***.

Thanks for your support Doah :)
And YES HE DOES.

The adjuster who came out should have seen NO SIGN that YOU hit the jerk and that it was the other way around! Next (IF there is one) take the passer bye up on his cell info!

Mr. Jerk is now claiming to have a witness that Theron opened the door and caused the accident himself. One would think that it should have been more than obvious to the adjustor that the damage to the car could not have been the result of us opening the door into Mr. Jerk's truck, but the insurance company sent us a letter saying that the investigation is still ongoing.

And if in the future something similar happens (god forbid) we will make damn sure to get the contact info of our own, TRUTHFUL witnesses.

Can ya tell I'm a bit steamed about this?

Jerk.

It's not ripping off to type in caps.. That's pretty universal to express emotion, right? I flat out robbed a sentence from Dooce that I like..

Paige said...

I guess I was just being unnecessarily sensitive about the caps thing. It was rather silly of me...

This @$$hole is probably a step 35 driver with a record of doing stuff like this, because he's too busy and important to drive safely. If it goes to traffic court the judge will probably see right thru his BS.
