    I bet, I would be too. That is like what happened to my parents car. This guy was painting a.house and some how he lost control of the.sprayer and got their whole passenger side with it. He comes and tells them and says he has a buddy who can buff it out. My parents gave his buddy a chance who decided to buff it with steel wool, not very fine steel wool either. Now there are millions of scratches on the car. We decided then to call our insurance and they only painted half the car and a different color, for some reason they didn't see the problem....we convinced them to paint the other half the same color. We did get a free paint job but what a headache.

    Washed the Suburban this afternoon down in Beaver Springs. On the ride home, I had to run into the other lane twice to avoid where someone had blown all their grass into the roadway.

    I moved my Z out of the garage today so the cable guy could replace this box on the wall. At first he is like "Oh I can get in between your car and do my work" to which I replied no sir I really want to move it so nothing happens.

    I go outside when the guy is done and somehow there is white specs all over the car (it's black) and upon further inspection a perfect circle on the hood the exact size of a drink.
    WTF?

    I sprayed the car with the hose quick (it was dark) and the white specs came off. The circle is still there but I think I can polish it off. This is why I HATE when mthrfkrs need to get into the garage for bs. People are fkin idiots.

    I wish I had caught that fker with a drink on my hood! Unfortunately I couldn't hang outside to keep an eye on my car so I payed the price. nEVER again!

    2008 Hummer H3

    That's why I don't play around with people needing to work around my vehicles.

    It also takes twice as long to detail the Hummer as it did my Camaro.

    First words out of my mouth are, "don't touch my vehicle, it takes me hours to get it to look like it does, and all of 1 second to fuck it up".

    Or, "treat it like it's MINE not like it's YOURS".

    It's a little standoffish but it gets my point across before any stupidity happens..

    I would have called him back saying the work he just did had an issue and then locked him in the garage with my Pit Bull.

    Lol the weird thing was I moved my car out of the garage and parked it at the end of my driveway. I wish I had a video of wtf went on while I was in my house.

    Dude I would be so pissed too. This reminds me of back in 2009 when I was down in Virginia beach with my TA. I went into some stores and when I cam out I found hand prints on my hood. The position they were in were like someone leaned back resting on their hands, like they were posing for a picture.

    A lot of people have no respect for others. I was taught early in life to stay away from people's cars- don't lean on them, touch them and sitting on a mans car .......well that wouldn't even enter my mind even as a kid.

    I was eating out with my family one night and looked out the window. I saw a man laying on the hood of my sisters brand new Town car. I run out there and this guy was drunk out of his mind.....it was all I could do not to do what I would normally do but he still left in a hurry. Total idiot.

    04 2500 4x4 crew cab

    I remember chewing another guy's ass for leaning against someone else's car. We were working on a big project, and while we were taking lunch, a guy on another company's crew was leaning all over this car. I had a feeling it wasn't his. I asked him if it was, and then chewed his ass in front of his friends, and my crew. I did it in spanish, too, so I know he, and and everyone else understood.
