Insurance Hacking -Not So Nice
Last Sunday I was rear-ended while driving my new car on the fwy. It was stop and go, the impact didn't do much damage, and the driver was nice. He apologized and took responsibility, did not try to get out of it - even though he's of modest means. A nice drummer from Australia or something. We scheduled repairs with the insurance which have not happened yet.
Flashforward 5 days to yesterday. I'm driving home in rush hour traffic on Melrose Ave in Los Angeles (a crowded street w/people on the sidewalks) and guess what happened? I was rear ended again! I could hardly believe it. What are the odds? I get out and take a look at my bumper, look at the guy who hit me, and before I know it, he drives away. Yes. He has a creepy smirk on his face, and drives away - actually needing to drive up onto the sidewalk to escape.
I only caught the first 3 digits of his plate because it happened so fast and I thought he was just pulling to the side at first... Bastard didn't cause any additional damage to my car that I can see, but it really sucks that the nice drummer gets his insurance dinged and this little weasel-face gets away with it.
Just sharing with youze so I can hopefully stop fantasizing about kicking his teeth in : )
