I can cry
I'm crying actually. I scratched the brand new car. It is in the shop now and I won't get it back for about ten days.

I was at the bank's drive-thru, waiting behind this car. It seemed like the shorter lane at the time. I didn't know what the woman and her friend were doing. Seemed like searching for a dropped ATM card. They took forever. I couldn't really back out and go to the other lane, there was a car behind. Finally the car behind me moved. I waited a bit longer, but they still have not even put their card in the slot. So I backed out, as I turned to move to the other drive-thru. I heard this grinding sound. It was the sound of my car grinding on this pole between the two drive-thru.

I dared not look at the damage until I stopped at somewhere later. I just about died.

I feel so sad and angry at myself, at that woman in the drive-thru, and the stupid pole.

Oh my gosh! I'm sorry to hear about that. I did something similar to our smaller car and a damn pole! I have yet to repair the damage.

If it's any consolation, my car has lots of scratches! and I mean LOTS!

ugh! I feel so sorry for you! I totally did this to our new car, also! Except instead of scraping across a pole, I accidentally got caught on the curb of a small median (at a bank, too!) and scraped up the bottom of the car. Had to have the paint all redone and everything.

Why does it always have to happen to the NEW car?! :(

Grinding? Oh, no! That's a "did that just happen?" moment. :(

But don't worry, when you get it back, it will be good as new.

if it was just a little scratch, i would not have minded or fixed it. but it was pretty long, from half way on the right side of backseat door to passing the gas door.
