Come on :(

I am in high school and drive my Camaro every day. Obviously it caused quite a stir last year when I got it but by now everyone knows its mine and is very respectful. I am walking from second to third period today and a kid who I know but haven't talked to in a while pulls me to he side of the hallway. He is just like "I am so sorry, I was in the lot this morning and scraped you car" ... And I'm like oh man how bad. I thought he was walking by and like scraped it with his key or something but NO!! He scraped my car with his CAR pulling into the spot next to me. Now I'm pretty upset, not mad but almost sad in a weird way. he is really nice and was honestly sorry but it just sucks. He is going to pay for it out of pocket so his insurance doesn't go up but what a sad day it has become.

Him manning up and letting you know was pretty good, if you ask me.

Better get the insurance info just in case. You aren't fixing that for a couple hundred bucks like he thinks.

Make sure your resource officer or front office does a report, and get all the kids information.

At least he confessed to it. Most people at my H.S. back when I went wouldn't have owned up to it.

+1 To both! With that being said, driving any nice car to highschool is like playing Russian Roulette. A bunch of inexperienced drivers all clammering into one area. :(

I swear these cars have "hit me" on them. My car was 1st 5th gen Camaro was in hit n run. Either they hit me parking or when they reversed.

Man that's pretty bad! Sorry to hear that. It is good he was honest about it. Hope he holds up to the $ part when the bill comes in.

yea...you will want to get his insurance info and everything just incase. Could be front facia/bumper and front side fender...Not sure what kind of money the kid is rolling with but I would guess it could easily cost $500 to replace/repair. I could be wrong though

Like others have said... you are very lucky. Instead of being mad at this guy, he should be your new friend.

Now go out and teach him how to drive...

So true. My car has been hit in this two year period more that any car i've ever owned ALL PUT TOGETHER. It's like they are magnets to accidents.

Yeah...definately good for him that he came to you with the bad news. But you MUST get his insurance info ASAP.

That looks pratcially identical to a scratch I got, but mine didn't get into the sheet metal of the fender. Took $1700.00 to fix. (Yes that's one thousand, seven hundred bucks)

You really can't get mad at the guy - he did do the right thing and accidents happen. But like you, it was depressing to see my baby with a scraped up nose. Even worse yet was having to drive a crappy monte carlo beater/rental for a week.

God...You should be so thankful he fessed up. Most adults don't have that kind of integrity.

I have to chase most people down that hit me because they just want to act as though it never happened.

I am not mad at all. Like I said it is sad and makes me bummed but he's cool and we are tight. My dad works at a dealership so I have the resources to easily get it fixed. I have scraped it once before but not as bad as this. I am sure they won't be expecting the price to be so high. It will get fixed and everything will be back to normal, hopefully, soon. I like to think if no one is hurt and it can be fixed it is just an inconvenience. Stuff happens and he manned up and was responsible. I know mostly any other kid would have never told me, some of these kids just have no common sense or feel they are responsible for any of their actions.

Like everyone said you gotta give the guy credit for fessin up. Good to hear you guys are still tight as well. Good to know not every kid out there is a sneeky little snot, and credit to you too for not going off the deep end.

It was a cheap way to find out a friend has true character, I'm sure it will work out for everyone, that kid is a stand out in a crowd, good for you for recognizing that fact.
