Hell Breaking Loose

The Pens won the Stanley Cup, 2-1, in the 7th game against the Detroit Red Wings. This led to bedlam on the south side of Pittsburgh and some drunk rear ending my defenseless parked Jeep. Fortunately the street was full of people and one attentive woman wrote down the license plate number, which got passed on to me, and then the police. BUT the thing is, this might lead to my vehicle being totalled by the insurance company because trust me, the damage is much worse than what this photo suggests. I won't know until I get the estimate this week, but I'm really afraid that this is it for the old girl. And we just had a bunch of maintenance work done in anticipation of a vacation trip! Now, well, I just feel sick. The poor Jeep!
I've had it with the south side.

You're joking, right? The guy who hit you wants money for his fucking soft tissue? Well, this looks like a countersuit if ever I saw one!

Awww, Jennifer...that TRULY sucks! Thank goodness the woman wrote down the license plate number. (I just hope they have insurance.)

Drollgirl...The fact that the guy who hit your car would sue YOU is outrageous! For your sake, I hope that he drops the case, because I've also seen how outrageous the legal system can be (even if the defendant is an innocent victim).

I wish you both the best with these maddening circumstances.
