FML - The follow-up
lil_breezy Say more :
Hey all. Just a follow-up as this was my FML. I left my house around 10:00pm and approached my car from the front, so I was not alerted to the damage around the back. The piece of paper was not immediately visible from inside, so it must have been tucked down securely against the hood. When I saw it flapping in the wind on the well-lit highway, I tried my best to slow and exit. Too late :( Nothing I could do. I've had better days.

So you didn't see anything wrong with your car or the paper located on your windshield until you were on the highway? Way to be observant and aware of your surroundings as a driver!

This kind of thing has happened to me before when leaving work in the evening. It's far easier you than you might think not to spot that anything is out of the ordinary when it's dark. Not noticing damage to the back of your car at night when you walk towards the front has nothing to do with not being 'aware of your surroundings as a driver', I love the extra-nice judgemental attitude there. When your car is parked at home do you always do a couple of circuits around it to make sure it's exactly

37 - let me guess. You've never clicked YDI or I Agree Your Life sucks before? Or thumbed anyone down? Because this site is made for others to judge by the little story given. I like how you just focused on my not noticing the back of the car as being an in attentive driver yet completely forgot the fact that the OP, while in the drivers seat, with the windshield right in front of them, missed a note on their car until they reached the driveway. It being evening is no excuse for not noticing

55 - I don't know if you're aware but in order for it to be under the hood or "bonnet" one must access the inside of the vehicle to pop it open. Also I'm replying to this thread and what was given here and the initial posting. I'm not going to read each and every reply in other threads in hopes that further explanation is given.

I did read the OPs explanation at the very top. That is and has been what my replies have been about. Not any further explanations that have come about since.

Not really wanting to jump back in here... but if you're gonna refuse to read the comment that people are basing their replies on, then why are you still trying to argue against them? That's just ignorant. Not to mention your arguments will be fundamentally flawed because you wilfully don't have the same information as everyone else.

70 - I ask the same of you. If you realize this why continue to reply? As I've said from the beginning (this is getting repetitive) my replies and initial post are based on the FML itself. If you'd like to argue about the follow-up post why not post there?

72 - its the internet anyone can post, so if you wanna live in your own little world and ignore the follow up just cause it disproves your point, then go ahead but it wont stop people from refering to it here

73 - actually as it states in fmls terms we are not to thread jack and supposed to stick with the topic at hand... The topic was in reference to the fml itself not the follow-up which can be replied to as well... 74 - maybe if getting a top comment actually mattered then you'd have a point there, but alas, it doesn't.

More likely the note said, "Hi I hit your car and there are people watching me, so I'm writing this to make them think I'm giving my insurance information. Sorry, tough luck."

It would be entertaining if people left riddles as the note, and you gain the persons information by solving the riddle. The anger and frustration it would bring would be priceless.
