Hit and Run Update

So it appears that the kind gentleman that rammed his piece of junk car into mine is one - uninsured, two-doesn't have a driver's license, and three-doesn't speak English (hmmm...do I smell an illegal immigrant??). But because some saint of a bystander got his license plate, the police impounded his car. He'll have to pay a bunch of fees and get insurance before he can get it back. And then he'd have to fix his car, too. So I'm not holding my breath that he'll come through and somehow pay for my car's repairs. And perhaps I shouldn't delight in the misfortunes of others, but it makes me feel good that he got his ride taken away. I took one for the team and got this renegade driver off the streets! I honestly do (or did) have a soft spot for illegals. But it's one thing to suck up our country's resources and not pay taxes, it's another to drive around like a crazy person and injure ME and make ME pay my insurance copay to fix damage YOU did to my car. So go ahead and kick them out now.

And all it took to make you anti-illegal immigration was a broken bumper:) Hope you're okay. Let me know if you start patrolling the border anytime soon.

Glad you're okay! I'm also glad his ride was taken away.

Steph: Don't feel too bad, that happened to me when I was 19 years young. Fortuanately I got the license plate number and the next morning the cops picked him up. The man stated he thought he hit a curb. He was either full of it or drunk out of his mind. It's a hard pill to swallow but we do it because we are better than them. I'm just glad no one in your family was hurt other than the pocket book. You make a fine Republican. Romney would be proud of you. If you were a Democrat you would say "kill the bum" and then ask for his vote.

That really sucks. I'm so glad someone else had the decency to pay attention to his license plates. I told my boss about your accident and it sent her into a 10 minute rant about how irritating it is that people are still getting away with being here illegally. Glad you're alright, though!

Wow, I feel better about all my illegal immigrant hit and runs now just knowing that justice has been served somewhere on the planet!
