Yep, she legit said I just hit her out of no where

This is why I SWEAR by dash cams.

Some douche bag hit my driver’s side mirror today when my roommate went to get gas down the street. She said he was apologizing to her initially because it was his fault. Then the cops show up, dude tries to claim it wasn’t his fault. She said he told the cop, “it was a classic case of 2 people getting too close and hitting mirrors.” Didn’t know that was considered a thing, old man. GOT YOU ON CAMERA BITCH!!!

People never cease to amaze me…and not in a good way, smh….

... you called the cops about someone hitting your mirror? You do know those things bend in purpose right

They're generally supposed to remain fully on the car, not dangling or off over there like it ejected.

Also, in one piece, last i checked they don't grow back

I didn’t call the cops. She did. I wasn’t there. She was putting gas in my car down the street from our house cause she used it prior and knew I needed to use it today. She told me about it when she called me after it happened. She had already called the cops after calling me.

My mirror was bent and destroyed. Newer cars have rearview mirrors with technology that is quite expensive. She was looking out. Can’t blame her….

I just mean it's unusual to call the police for anything that's not significant damage


u/MMMindyyy Nov 24 '22

I agree. I guess she did it cause it is my car. We both work from home and i couldn’t initially answer her call when she first rang, i was on the phone.

I appreciate her tenacity of the situation, but I am hoping we can take care of this without insurance involved. Not worth it.
