Well mom backed into my car this morning....

This morning when my mom was backing out of the driveway on her way to work, she ran into my car.

Frustrating is just not the word. This is my cars second black eye this year.

Anyway, bless her heart, she feels terrible about it, and my parents insurance is going to pay for it.

Had to do a lot of reassuring to her this morning. "Mom don't worry about it, it's just a car"

hey your calipers are very red and clean looking. Mine look dirty already plus they arent red. You paint them? Covers? Clean them with something?

I'm sure she feels bad about it. Moms are special and I'm sure it will
be fixed up in no time like new.

My dad backed into mine around this time last year and cost me $5,000 in damage. I feel your pain.

Indeed. I'm not mad at her though. She really feels terrible about it.

yeah there is no way I could ever be upset with moms. I'm sure she would be inconsolable anyhow.

Yea.....it's a serious bummer. But I guess that's what I get for trying to daily drive a heavily modified car.
