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.
