I tried to talk with the mother, what a joke she just ignored me!! I wanted to do something but thought it best not to. I decided to follow her for a couple of blocks to get my point across that I was not happy about what happened!

Granted it didn't hurt my car but I would think she could have at least said sorry and she will talk to her little girl about it.....NOPE!! And we wonder why kids now days are mostly lazy and just cause trouble. Parents seem to lack the knowledge of how to raise their kids.

Not saying everyone is like this but it's seems to be getting worse these days.
there's no point of arguing though; they're too ignorant to understand. I've given up on society and just tell them to eff off. They aren't ignorant enough to understand that

Yeah I figured that had something to do with it as well. Typical if I can't have it, you can't either mentality.

Shoot man if it was my kid I would have stopped to see what was up or at least roll the window down. But then again if it was my kid she wouldn't have done that in the first place.

How's your weekend going man?

Well I removed it anyways. Yea I wouldn't have a problem with mine being up. They can see it on the street so what's the difference.

That's my logic, but I see everyone do it, so maybe there's something I'm not getting.

I would get them, but I hear so many complaints about them. It's a shame really.

I have the side markers. I love em. No problems at all with them and have had them for about six months now. Keep in mind you don't hear about all the people that are happy, you only hear the bad.

now on to the license plate. I would recommend not having it up on the forum for a few reasons.

One: there are a lot of effin crazy people out in this world lol

Two: if you are trying to keep your warranty but admit to doing things you shouldn't or might void your warranty they can track who you are and what you have done.

Three: if you are saying you speed all the time, breaking laws, etc. the police can look you up. Remember this forum is open to the public to view, no account needed.

Why does surgery from a doctor cost 8k for a 30 min procedure?

Schooling and knowledge cost. Simple.
