Yesterday Kyle and I met up with his old NCO to have lunch. He is doing some training at Bliss for a month, so we definitely wanted to see him. We finished up lunch and headed to the car where we saw an MP writing down information as he was standing behind our car. Part of me started to panic because I thought we were getting a ticket for something (lol yes I automatically thought that). When we got closer he asked if it was our car and if the mark on the back left fender was already there. When we told him no he said "Ok we had a witness call saying the vehicle parked next to you hit your car while parking". Say what?! I immediately walked to the front of the SUV and oh yeah you could see where they hit our car.
We had to wait for this person to come out of the PX or wherever they were before we could leave. A few minutes later a gentleman walked over and told us that he was the one who called. We were so appreciative because not many people would take the time to look out for someone else. The MP told us that we had 2 options: A: exchange information with the driver or B: proceed with a case and have them charged with felony hit and run (it's a felony since no note was left after the accident occurred). Of course we opted for A.
Finally, a woman in her 60's came out and said it was her car and proceeded to say that she hadn't hit our car and that the damage to her car was already there. Ummm no lady there is a little bit of my blue paint on your front bumper lol. She was very defensive at first but then finally apologized. We were able to go about our day without a major confrontation. Thankfully the damage to my car is not major, it should hopefully be able to be buffed out *fingers crossed*.
All in all everything ended up ok thanks to the super nice guy who took 5 minutes out of his day to do something helpful.
