sure you couldve been nice about it

but it was the heat of the moment and the fact is that if he didnt leave the scene and admit HIS mistake from the beginning you probably wouldnt have been that mad

so what did u guys settle on? did u get his lisense number and report it to your insurance?

Situation like this where you know you got the upper hand with your car getting hit while it was parked, ask him to either to pay for it or you call insurance. No need to yell, just dont let him get away with it. Sure racist comments gonna piss you off, let him talk and get money for it.

If i had a $1 for every time someone has scraped up my bumper, I would have saved up like 5k by now :)

I understand getting mad but I probably wouldn't have started yelling. Now as for the "Latino" bull...I'd have nailed his racist ass to a legal wall for that tish! Glad you're car's getting fixed though. The only reason I wouldn't yell is because in the long run imho it gives you the advantage over him.

What does yelling ever accomplish? It immediately sets the other on the defensive. Stay calm, and things tend to work out phenominally better.

I wouldn't have yelled at him, but just copied down his plates and asked for his insurance info. If he tried to say he didn't hit you, then i would have just called the police.

Sorry to hear about your car, it looks real clean from your pic. I would've prob flipped out as well due to the same fact that he did not try to own up to his mistake like a man. I tell myself that I wouldn't start yelling but trurth is I don't know how I'll react on a given day/circumstances. Good you din't take it ant further cause once someone is in the wrong and they try to get loud or stupid cause of a reaction they brought about, it's times like those when I will snap and start smacking someone around, without thinking of consequences of course(I'm a little older and smarter so I try not to put myself in those type of situatuions because I know myself). That hispanic comment I don't like due to me being hispanic as well, what's funny is that I am "whiter" than many white people and english is my first language. Some people are stupid, they hate because we are the best of both worlds, our diff mixes with europeans, natives, and africans. You should give him that book written by Geraldo Rivera HisPanic.

OK...next time anybody pulls the raciscm BS, throw on your BEST scarface accent, start calling him "Holmes"...and tell him not to worry, "i got your lis-cence plate, and i will send some of my Favorite Cholo's...and there little friends to collect the payment due if you doesn't want to pay now..."

He has everything to lose , including face in front of his wife....and the other thing i have learnd that if you can make a man APPEAR cheap in front if his GF or wife, he will get NO action for weeks...or until she forgets...chicks hate that shit and even worse to be associated with it... poor provider = no ass

scratch repair is cheap compared to that...

Yo man, I got a thread for you:
http://www.acura-legend.com/vbulletin/f9/ugh-people-116981/

The same thing happened to my 6-months-new-to-me M3. I'm not gonna lie, I was losin' it but I kept my swearing to an absolute minimum (I did say "the hell you didn't" when the lady suggested she didn't do any damage to my car).

This sort of thing *ALWAYS* costs more than you think it will. ALWAYS. Unless you work at the body shop, don't even bother to think up a number 'cause it's gonna be wrong.

Point is, the MOST important thing you can do is stay calm enough to get a name, insurance information, and the license plate number. Yelling is expected but the guy you're dealing with is a moron.

It's a simple process to get someone's information from their license plate info in a situation like this so if needed, you can always deal with obtaining further information later: write that down FIRST.

But yeah, you can see what I've gone through in that thread up there. I don't blame you for yelling at the guy but I'm surprised you didn't beat the hell out of him right then and there: pulling the race card and saying you're attitude prevented him from working with you is cowardice bulls---. Race don't mean a damn thing and any fool that messes up a man's car ought to expect to have some attitude comin'.

That said, I gotta go bump my other thread.
