Personal Responsibility is Dead. That is All.

So, I got my laptop back from the repair shop (don’t ask) and I was siting here testing it out when I hear a crash outside my window. I get up, look down and see some guy tried to parallel park and smacked the car behind him. I watch the guy get out of the car, look around to see if anyone saw him (including looking up at the apartment building; clearly he wasn’t looking very hard because I was standing in the window, watching him), look at the car he hit, and DRIVE OFF.

What??? I knew he was going to do it too, the jerk, so I made sure I got his plate number. I took out an envelope, threw a business card in it, and wrote a note on the front for the parked car’s owner giving him/her the plate number and my info.

Now, it’s possible the guy didn’t hit the car hard enough to do anything, but seriously??? You just drive off? HOW FUCKING RUDE! And I’ll bet if someone did that to him he’d be screaming blue bloody murder right now.

This is what’s wrong with the world today – people not taking responsibility for their actions.

  1. I accidentally hit a car once while backing out from a friend’s driveway. After checking on the damage, I took out a piece of paper from my purse, wrote down my name, phone number and insurance info and put it under the windshield wiper of the car I hit. I hope the guy you saw is haunted by guilt over his cowardly actions.

  2. We’ll see. The owner of the parked car hasn’t come out yet.

    I once hit a car that was parked across the street from the end of my driveway. I saw the car, but forgot it was there (old habit of just tearing out of the driveway), and slid into it (it was winter). I had to go knock on the door and tell the person what I’d done. I was probably 17 or 18 at the time. Yeah, I felt like an ass but I would have felt worse if I’d just driven off.
