Im the guy that got oil all over my 3 hour old tC, and well my bad luck has not let up. Im chillin at work and my freind and this HUGE girl i work with and leaning up against my car. This girl is like 350-400lbs. So I tell them to back off my car, and my friend complies, but the monster does not. SHE SITS ON MY FREAKIN HOOD!!! I flip the fuk out and tell her to get the fuk off my hood. I dont get mad easy but with this you can understand how pissed i was. I didnt see any dents at first but when i got home.... AAAAAARRUGHH!!!!! 3 huge ass dents... Im filing a police report now, but what else can i do?

That really sucks. I did notice that the hood is really flimsy when I waxed the car and had to put a little pressure on it. I guess they had to cut down on the weight of the car somehow.

So how is filing a police report going to help you? I mean, are you going to make them pay for the repair?

Well, I don't know about filing a report...but I'd really be pissed.

If you know how to get in touch with the girl, I'd talk to her first....say look, here's the deal....you screwed up my brand new car. I had asked you to get off of it but you didn't. If you don't agree (in writing) to cover the ENTIRE cost of repairs to my dented hood, I'm going to file a police report and use my friend as an eye-witness that you were sitting on my hood and failed to comply when I asked you to get off of it.

At least give her a chance to take full responsibility and then bring the law into it if that's really what you want to do....

:edit: Doh, just re-read that you work with her, so you can definitely get in touch with her. Also, that DEFINITELY makes me think you should approach her before you get the law involved. If you go straight to the police, that could make for some seriously rough working conditions.

Damn that sucks... What kind of person leans on another persons car & dents it? & then doesn't move when asked? I bet she's the type of person who would cut you off and then flip you the bird because she's a bad driver... doesn't make sense to me!
Tension at work can be a drag, so avoiding that might be your best bet... however; it being the weekend, a police report may be your only option of having a record of what happened. Otherwise, it would be easier for her to say she didn't do it... tough call

Sorry to hear about all that - I'd hate to be in your shoes - good luck! & let us know how it turns out...

yay for asses who think they are funny... but dont know any limitations, who da hell sits on other ppls cars thats hella messed up, especially when they're fat....like id be selc conscious if i was fat and decided to sit on some ones hood, man wth thats soo jacked, what you should do is find out how much it costs, then ask her to pay that + something something for causing you the stress and the waste of your time, sigh man if theres anything i could possibly help you with just ask

I would contact her first and calmly show her the dents and ask her to pay for the replacement. I'm sure she knows its her that made those dents cause what else could have caused it. Since you do work with her... its easier in the long run to play nice.... cause you don't want to run the risk of pissing her off too. Who knows what she'll sit on next when you're not around to witness it.

Some people don't really think ... I don't think she sat on your hood purposely to damage it.

I wish you good luck with this one.

QUADIN I admire your restraint because I am not sure what actions I would take if some porker did not listen to my warnings and actually damaged my car. I say you may want to talk to her first but she sounds like one of those fat ass B&%ches that have very little resepct for other peoples property so in that case prosecute her to the furthest extent of the law!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

^^^I never really understood that either. PEOPLE SUK!

Oh, I am sorry to hear about your ass dents. I am again going to agree with LL. You should try to resolve your issues with this HUGE woman on a personal level and go from there. I would suggest photos as evidence as well. (and you can post them here so we can share in you pain)

First off, I feel your pain and hope you get things straightened out, and quickly.

Now, here's what you should do.

You did the right thing by filing a police report. Next, you need to take the car to the dealership and get an estimate on repairs. Take that estimate to the fat b$*@% and ask her nicely to pay for it. If she gives you the money, great. If she says she will and then doesn't, or if she outright refuses, sue her in small-claims court (or magistrate court, or whatever it happens to be called in your state -- the gist of it is that there's a court for claims of small amounts like this where you can go and argue a clear-cut claim like this before a judge without having to pay for a lawyer). It would help if you could get a written statement from anyone who might have seen her sitting on your car. Also, take pictures like the others suggested.

Oh, and I also commend you on your restraint. I would've hit a b$*@%.

Hmm... I don't recommend you going to small claims court unless you have to. The reason for this is any court stuff is considered public records. This will go on your credit report... its actually a negative thing and will affect your FICO score. I was going to buy a condo a few months back and found my small claims court public record on my report. The myfico.com website said that those things may have lowered my FICO score.
Anyways... if you go to small claims court for anything... your fault or not... it will be on your record for 7 years!!!!

The only way that going to small claims court would result on something on your credit report is if you have a judgment entered against you. Just going to any kidn of court is irrelevant to your credit report and will not appear...

Yeah... somewhat did sue me in small claims cause this greedy bastard of a jerk (I hope he's dead or has his you know what chopped off) didn't think my insurance company was giving him enough money. This guy had the nerve to claim that he went to a chiropractor 45 times in one month. I guess where there's crooked ppl... there are also crooked doctors. Anyways he ended up getting about just a little more than what the insurance company was going to offer him... and he still had to pay for his lawyer... hahaha

Anyways back to the topic... I thought it went on both party's records because it is a public record. Huh... its interesting to know it only goes on the record of the person the judgement is against...

That really sucks, about you getting sued by some jerk...There are lots of those going around...

About the judgment going on your record, though, you're right about it being a matter of public record...but the only things that go on a credit report are those that might adversely affect a person's ability to meet his/her financial obligations. The mere fact that you were in court once is irrelevant to that, but the fact that you owe someone money very well may have some bearing on your ability to pay potential creditors (which is the whole point of credit reports).

As for why it stays on your record for so long, I believe it's because a small-claims judgment could have something to do with failing to pay someone an amount you owe them...

Thank you all for your support. I did get a police report but no charges can be pressed b/c it wasnt criminal. I met with her and she was cool with paying for the repairs. If not, I have an excellent lawyer and itll go to small claims. I am absolutely heartbroken when I see them, so Ill prolly get a fix quoted tommorrow. Thanks again.
