Why do bad things happen to good people? fml

So yesterday I went to a store and parallel parked into a spot. I left both cars plenty of room to get out especialy the car infront. So I get out of the store and before I always get in my car I like to check around it if there would be any scratches or anything, but this time I didnt and went to the back to put in stuff in the trunk.

So I woke up today and had to go run some errands and I went to another store. I get out of my car and am halfway towards the store and I had forgoten my phone in the car. I walk towards the car, and I see this;



When I saw this I was furious. Someone had probably backed into me and just left.. I called my insurance and filed a police report and am probably going to need to order a new front bumper. Sometimes I just ask myself, why do bad things happen to good people?

Sucks man. I would use this opportunity to go with a Euro or aftermarket bumper.

Eh what can you do. Just be glad it's just the plastic bumper (cosmetic). Plus as everyone said, time for a nice Euro bumper. Good luck.

Police reports don't do anything.

I hear you and often feel the same way. Sometimes it seems like when you care about something particularly strongly, it attracts bad luck.

It'll be OK, don't worry.

Don't worry about it! Insurance will make it right.

When I first got my M, I would always right down the licence plate ID's of surrounding cars that were right next to mine. Funny how when I stopped a few months in, I got my first 2 door dings!! Just smile and move on.

+1 police won't do anything and your insurance might go up. Also your car might go into carfax report. It might reduce your resale value of your car later on because of that minor accident. I just hope everything works out for you. People have no respect for other people property these days.

They only make 75 of that bumper. It is going to be hard to get and a long waiting time.

Beauty is the eye of the beholder. Everyone has their own taste and needs. I find it a little expensive for my taste at $2000.
