Side-swiped by a shop-vac. Really.

An idiot side-swiped my truck as it was parked on the street in front of my house. He had a shop-vac in the bed piled on top of tree limbs and the vac slid off the side of the truck, swinging by its A/C cord. Whacked my driver-side door hard enough to set off the alarm. The result is just a few scratches but they’re down through the clear coat layer so they need to be repaired and repainted.

  1. Well that sucks. Big time. Careless people suck.

    My one and only ever accident? A lawn mower totaled the entire quarter-panel of my first brand-new car on the second day I owned it. I have a friend who had a $1,000 repair bill from a paper mâché ice cream cone that was knocked off a parade float flew through the air and landed on her car – the interior was chicken wire and gouged the roof of her car.

    I wonder if there’s a site or blog dedicated to auto damage caused by things other than other cars/weather/keys? There are probably some good stories out there.
