Truck Character

A friend is staying with us for a few days while she is in town for a wedding. I haven’t needed the truck, so our friend has been using instead of renting something.

Well, the other day she was in Oak Bay, and someone opened their door and scratched and dented the truck. When I first heard I thought it was a joke, but then I checked it out. My initial reaction was that of anger and disappointment, but then I started thinking about it.

My truck is a 98. It already has a few small dents, lots of scratches, and certainly isn’t a new truck. I convinced myself to let it go. Sox called the people who left the note and told them not to worry about it. I love my truck, but it is time to accept that it isn’t new, and that I can’t baby it (not that I do that anyway). Anyway, I am not interested in making someone else pay for a paint job. Getting one quarter panel painted would make the rest of the truck look funny. I don’t want to screw up their insurance either.

Any way. The truck has a new dent and a new scratch. More character I guess.
