Almost lost my exhaust today

I almost got my whole exhaust ripped off today pulling into these apartments that I've never been to ,at the entrance gate there was 2 medal squares and I went to the left of one but didn't get over enough and it ripped the clamps off connecting the pipe to the x-pipe so now I have to take it to the shop to get realigned cause the muffler is hanging , I can't believe I did that 😭

Yesterday I was at Wawa gas station, pulled over where they pump the fuel into the underground tanks..scraped the hell out of my bottom, reversed out of it and scraped some more , checked it out today and there's a bunch of scrapes all over my stock mid pipe..terrified I messed something up but it all sounds good/ drives fine, no engine light..probably gonna have it checked out for ease of mind tho

I ran over a raccoon before it looked small so I went over it and its head hit my mid pipe haha but it didnt do anything cause my car wasn't lowered and today as soon as I hit that square I knew something was ****ed it sounded sooo bad

In NC, I'm worried if I drop it, I won't have clearance to drive over all the dead deer in the road. Then again, maybe drop even more a get a carbon fiber chin spoiler. Take this deer and shove it!

This is exactly the reason I love my air suspension. Push a button and raise the car to clear any obstacle , then lower it back down. I never worry about scraping anymore!!
