So I come home from college for a weekend to get my car (going to a concert next weekend so I need it) and guess what my mom rode my car up on a curb while parking because of leaves so I guess there's a crack in it. $400 to fix. Haven't seen it yet because I'm scared. Plus I'm a perfectionist so it's going to be awful.

359 for a new andy's bumper...plus shipping
and/or
make a Barto1127 donation fund...

Damn dude, that sux! My mom won't even ask to drive my car because she's too afraid of what I'll do if anything happens to it. She's paying for it, right?

I'm in college, 3 cars in the family. My brother has a job and needs to drive to it after school so he needs a car and my Dad needs one to drive to the bus stop and my Mom has her van. My Dad's car was in the shop and my Mom drove it to work. It's funny because out of all 3 I trusted her driving it the most. And as of right now she told my brother she's not paying for it. I can't drive around with it like that it's like driving around with an unpainted kit.

That is the most ridiculous logic I have ever heard. Yeah, everybody costs their parents money when they're a kid, but parents make that choice. This is something that he bought with his money, and I don't care if it was his mom, his grandmother, or the pope who damaged his bumper. You damage somebody's property, you pay for it. That's just the way it is. I bet if he had smashed up his mom's car and it was his fault, she wouldn't just pay for it and say it's no big deal.

i dont know what EXACLY u mean by this...but what i was referring to was when a kid damages or distroys something of their parents like for ex. setting the living room rug on fire....all the kid is gonna say hes sorry and may be disaplined for it. what im saying i dont think his mom diliberatly damaged the car...it was an accident. thats why they call it an accident. if i had a kid and my kid wanted to get me to pay for something that was clearly accidental...id call in every damage my kid and see if they will pay for that.

I really don't care what you guys think about my MOM, what I really care about is how I'm going to bandage this bad boy up for the winter season so that I can get it possibly fixed after the winter!

Try taking it to a body shop and see if it can be fixed insted of replaceing it

I did, 400 to fix it, compared to an unpainted unshipped new bumper for 359 from andy's.
