My first nick/scratch and only 3 weeks

Ya today I washed my car and what do I discover some *** HOLE cant parallel park on the street and hit the front cover of the car, its maybe a 1" long with some of the rubber of the front cover not much I guess latter today ill get some spray touch up, mask it off spray heavy and then wax the piss out of it and hope it blends and matches ? Ill take any suggestions if you have a better idea, I don't think its worth a trip to the body shop.

I'm in the army and when I went back to Wisconsin on leave I had the 5.0 parked in my dads driveway. Well him not being used to a car parked in the driveway he backed up without looking. That morning I woke up to my car alarm going off. I was mad as hell. Went outside and my bumper, hood, corner panel, and headlight were all trashed. Car was only a week old.

Within the first week, i got a nasty rock chip in the hood. All the way down to the aluminium. Makes you sick tonyour stomach. It seems to be that the more you try to protect them, the more shtuff happens.

****ty deal. 3 weeks after I bought my 2010 gt some *** hole backed into the front fender just crushed it. I was choked. But not only did he hit it he left without telling me. It was a small town tho. So I walked around for 6 hours and found the guy. He paid for it.

Its just funny, ya know. You see these people who dont give two sheets about their cars and it seems like nothing ever happens to them. Whether it be mechanical or cosmetic.

After the first month owning mine I had some one hit it with a shopping cart and I park as far away as possible at stores. You just keep these people that don't care.

Re: My first nick/scratch and only 3 weeks

Wow all those story's suck, I had to laugh because it hurts so bad. Sometimes I wish I just had a beater and drive it and park it were ever and not give a F.

Re: My first nick/scratch and only 3 weeks

I have mine less than 2 months and quite a bit has already happened to mine.
1. I went to look at the car at the dealership totally fine no scratches signed papers and went back next day but didn't notice until I got home that my front lip was cracked majorly and was about to come off. Called dealership and they said it was my fault even though it wasn't.
2. Took car back to dealership to get detailed cause there was tree sap on it when I got it but I was to busy to get it cleaned then. Dropped it off and came back later and someone backed up into or hit the left corner on my front bumper. Again they said it was my fault even though it wasn't there when I dropped it off. My dad started rubbing paint off and cussed the guy out saying if they detailed it and it was my fault then why is he able to rub the paint from the other vehicle off.
3. When to a car show and parked by a curb since I though it would be safer. Came out later and a big SUV parked next to me and when I backed up I got my back rim pretty good and my front one a little. Now the back one has two very noticeable scratches on it.
4. Neighbor's cat jumped on the roof of my car and scratched it all over the roof and the scratches won't come out. Can't make the owner pay for it either cause I don't have proof.
5. I was washing my car two week ago and noticed someone keyed my back bumper and door a little bit. They are deep so there is no way to get it out either.

I haven't had a break since I got this car the dealership and the keying this I'm guessing is cause I'm 16 and drive a nice car cause whenever someone sees me get in it they make a smart remark like one guy said "Okay now let me go to work and make my pennies" to me while I was just getting gas minding my own business. Kinda makes me wish I got a beater for my first car.

Sorry for it being so long, had to vent about it all.
