You should have seen the Miata my friend backed into with his F-150... Smashed the trunk in a couple feet... his truck has a scuff on the bumper about twice the size of a quarter.

Like Cabbs said, you've probably gotten a lot of shit over it, but just make sure you've learned your lesson, be careful and be more observant in the future. Accidents happen and when you're young you tend to be more cavalier when you drive. Don't be. Take driving seriously because people can and have died from "accidents".

Yeah, tell me about it.

There was this one time I was coming home at around 12 at night and right as I was making a left hand turn into the driveway of the townhouse complex there was this Accord that was waiting to make a left hand turn (from his POV). So I was like, "okay I have right of way" so I start turning into the driveway and as I'm about halfway through the turn, the genius in him (some middle aged guy, probably around 45-55 years old) decides that HE can go. So his front left bumper bumps RIGHT into my rear left bumper. Makes a somewhat loud bump noise, my rear loses grip and I slide a bit. So we both park and get out to exchange info and all the necessary things.

Right when I approach him I ask, "Hi, you alright? So, can I see your driver's license and proof of insurance?" Then he asks why and I tell him that it was his fault cause I had the right of way and he came out and hit me. What he said after actually took me by surprise a bit cause it was just so random, but he was like "you know, for that much noise, the damage ain't too bad!" So I'm thinking to myself "what the random? Okay..." I just tell him, "yeah it wasn't, so can I see your info please?" After that he was like "say, are you in college yet? Cause I was looking at those Mission College catalogs today and they have some pretty interesting classes!" At this point I'm just like "Sir, the accident was your fault, I had right of way and you failed to observe that, now let me see your information or I WILL call the police to settle this." Luckily some Mexican dude pulled up in his pickup with his girlfriend next to him and said he witnessed the whole thing. So he helped me get everything all settled. Got the guy's info, sent him the bill for a new E36 bumper two days later and got that finished.

God, I hate people who have no integrity and just try to blame something else and can't face the consequences. If he straight up admitted the fault was his and gave me his information I would've been a lot nicer.
