Frowning.

Currently in san Diego... Currently no street lights on because of the power outage and just had my first encounter with a curb kiss and my passenger wheel.

Trying to pull in to a parallel parking spot in the pitch black with headlights not really helping too much given the location caused me to swoop in a bit more than anticipated and heard the \'crunch\' noise as my right front passenger wheel rubbed the curb.

Very sick feeling but oh well... Hope you all are having a little more luck with your night!

I feel your pain. Had a recent doctor appointment and the place is always packed and parking is terrible but that day there was a great spot but I was coming in too fast and too sharp and encountered the dreaded crunch. This was just a month after scraping another rim at work. It's been fun.

Ya this outage sucks, and bummer on the curb rash. Hit up Son Tran, he works miracles on wheels and I'm sure could help you out if you're willing to make a little drive.

Oh bummer, I was on my phone (obviously ) and couldn't see where you're from. Good luck with the wheel!

I apologize for him. He was just was trying to impress you. I don't know what it means. I'll be honest, I don't think anyone knows what it means anymore. Scholars maintain that the translation was lost hundreds of years ago.

OP: Don't worry.. wheels will get damaged, that's life! Take it to a repair shop and you'll be feeling better in no time. These things happen! I had some curb rash once and had it dealt with a wheel repair place in town to the tune of $130. The results were incredible and I never worried about it again.

Brian Fantana: [about Veronica] I'll give this little cookie an hour before we're doing the no-pants dance. Time to musk up.
[opens cologne cabinet]

Ron Burgundy: Wow. Never ceases to amaze me. What cologne you gonna go with? London Gentleman, or wait. No, no, no. Hold on. Blackbeard's Delight.

Brian Fantana: No, she gets a special cologne... It's called Sex Panther by Odeon. It's illegal in nine countries... Yep, it's made with bits of real panther, so you know it's good.

**sorry had to join in on the Anchorman fun! OP a wheel repair shop can take care of the curb rash no problem. Like it never happened
