Tell that to a musician with a $5000 guitar. Tell them it's just a guitar after you break it.. Your logic is flawed.

Let's imagine you go and buy an expensive 3d television for $4,000 and when you bring it home someone scratches the screen. Would you say "eh, it's just a TV," or would you be pissed off?

I really don't see the logic in your argument especially when I'm talking about an item that costs $40,000..

I'll see your $40,0000 and raise you another $25,000 ~~~~

My husband and I have a Ford F-350 Super Duty 4x4 Dually pick up truck...... rather expensive, yes, but we use the heck out of it for work.

And that's our baby too. We wash it, use leather conditioner on the seats, polish the chrome..... you know. Pamper it.

However, all the dings on it are from others, men and woman alike. And yes, we park out in the parking lot but it never fails. There's always some one nearby.

Even the damn guys that gather the grocery carts are bad about ramming into the vehicle.

One let a cart run into our fender well and it knocked the parking light out and had to replace it. About $35 or so.

Yes, it was a guy, and yes my husband let him have it, verbally that is. I guarantee the kid will think twice next time about a run away cart. [hee,hee]

My point is that it's not gender specific.
Men/Women alike, young and old, rich or poor ...... ALL are at fault.

How can you not see where the majority of replies are coming from in this thread? People are clowning on you because you are raging over TINY SCRATCHES in your car door. You also appear to have no problem being an authoritarian misogynist who wants to strip half of the populations ablity to drive away. Maybe you would prefer to live in Saudi Arabia?



There is monetary damage because THE CAR IS DAMAGED


OMG, two tiny scratches from a car door!~@~!#


There is also hundreds of hours of time I've spent keeping this car flawless(like a show car)


That isn't an expense. That's you personally choosing to care about a piece of metal enough to waste hours of your life rubbing on it.


How is it fair for one person to come along, do damage to the car, and then act as if it's no big deal??


How is fair that you want to strip the driving rights of all women away based on the actions of one, and then act like it's no big deal?


Who the hell are you to judge??


Who are you to judge women?


Like I said my line of work is AUTO DETAILING and having a flawless car is NECESSARY.


Then go fix it, it should take you under 15 minutes.


Be out of a work vehicle for DAYS. That is not right!


Complete lies, it would take you 15 mins (if that) as I said above.


Yes it is a big deal, TO ME.. The world doesn't revolve around your opinions but when it's MY posession that's in question MY FEELINGS matter..


If it is a big deal to you then you need to find some biological beings to care about.


I'm sure the next time I detail my customers R8 or Lambo I could make a small scratch and they will say HEY IT'S OK BUDDY IT'S JUST A CAR!


They're paying you to take care of their car, completely ridiculous comparison.

Yes I know about childbirth being painful., i have 3 children.
I've been burnt too and that is painful, but it was only my hand.

I spent time in hospital with a severe burn victim. He had no nose, mouth ears or eyes. I cant imagine the pain he must have endured. That's a life shattering experience , you lose everything in your life that you had up until that point . You don't realize how insignificant material objects really are until all you have left is this person inside.

That's where I was coming from.

Objects are just objects. In this case it seemed th OP 's car was nothing more than a visual object of gratification for him.
All about " looks".

I totally get he doesn't get my point though. He thinks I don't.

I must apologize, I was so extremely irritated at the OP, I only skimmed over the other posts until I saw that and I missed you point entirely.
You couldn't be more right.

They aren't tiny scratches, They are chips that have gauged beyond the clearcoat.

Typical deflection. The car was damaged and the wench drove off.

Wrong

Wrong a detailer can only fix into the clear coat, they cannot fix when it's down to metal.

We have actually witnessed a couple get into an argument over the dude's car. God forbid if she leaned on it or placed a cup on the hood. Horrors!! I think some times she did it just for spite.

Some guys are so "obsessed" with their vehicle that even their girlfriend/wife is below the rank of the car, if that makes sense. In other words, the car is more important than they are. Crazy, I know......

Yeah, we are all victims of the dreadful "door" dings......

One time when we were coming out of the store, the wind picked up as there was a storm coming. All of a sudden several grocery carts started wheeling aimlessly towards our truck. Boy, talk about hauling ass, we ran and caught them in time but the cars around us got it. Only one got a pretty good dent, the rest just a scratch that could have been buffed out. We got tickled then, calling them"phantom' carts..... at least we beat the rain tho. LOL....

I think the point the OP is trying to make is that, with a little effort on the part of everyone, this situation can be avoided. Your car doesn't have to look crappy if people would take the time to be careful around other people's property.

I don't drive so the OP can be breath a sigh of relief.
I have though suffered a tooth abscess, passed a kidney stone and had a few back labours. Passing a kidney stone was, to coin a phrase, a piece of piss compared to the other two.

I know your pain.. I enjoy car detailing as a hobby and it annoys me to no end when I come to the car to find a new trolley ding, or to see the wife drag the metal chain of her handbag across the paintwork when she gets out of the car etc. I think it's a rage only detailers can fully understand. Hours and hours of painstaking cutting, polishing, buffing, waxing, researching products undone by a careless twit (male or female).

From personal experience women do tend to be the main culprits, I assume it's because a far smaller percentage of them are into cars the way blokes are so they don't understand how much money, time and effort goes into keeping the mirror-like shine and adding performance mods (thus they aren't as careful around vehicles).

Hope the chips aren't too bad, if you're lucky a bit of touch-up paint, a few hours buffing and the door will be good as new.

I can't imagine ever having the wealth to own a 40k vehicle. You should be thankful, actually.

Yup, happened to my car twice and both time it was women. One really windy day I was at the supermarket, so I decided to park at the back, out of the way of the other cars. Loads of free parking spaces everywhere and what happens. While I'm shopping a woman pulls up right beside my car, opens the door and the wind slams it straight into my door leaving a dent about 6" long and 2" deep. This woman left her details though so it got fixed through her insurance. What annoyed me the most is the complete lack of common sense. The second time was a young girl pulling into a parking space next to me while im in my car. No idea how this person got her license. As she pulls in her rear left side contacts my rear right corner and actually rocks my car. She has no idea this is happening and continues to attempt to pull in.When she gets out I get out and confront her. She has no idea what she has done and denies it, even when I show her the scratches on the bumper. Luckily an Ambulance driver is parked right over and saw the whole thing and gets out to tell her what she did. Women are bad drivers because they lack common sense and spatial awareness. The worst driving I ever see is always women.

I understand the OP's feeling and sympathize with him.

At the end of the day, regardless of what others may feel is trivial, it meant an awful lot to him. You cannot compare other catastrophic events and say that his rant is shallow or meaningless because you are not him. If you had any empathy at all you would accept that it caused him great distress, this is a rant thread after all so why would anybody try to trivialize his frustration.

What really riles the guy is that another human being had such little regard or respect for his property. He can probably relate it to how many days of hard work he now has to do to pay for the repair, returning it to the condition it was before this selfish person damaged it and then drove away without giving it a second thought.

It makes ME angry thinking about it, and come on ladies you don't need to come across so offended because he generalized about women drivers I am sure you are all bigger than that - and OP don't be such a bigot.

Big deal, some years ago an idiot crashed into my car, the door was totaled and had to be replaced. It was guy.
So are all guys now also disallowed to own a car?

Nearly everbody who owns a car has experienced this, so stop crying baby and be glad it was just some 35k piece of # and not a really expensive car

libertytoall, the woman who scratched your car was arrogant and selfish. From what I understand though, these aren't gender specific traits. It sucks when someone scratches your car, but given how narrow parking spots are these days, it's an inevitability. I too have a new car, and have received a few door scratches. Oh well, it is a car, not an extension of myself, life moves on................

Lets see I've had MEN key my car, trash my glass, smash my headlights.. maybe I should take their licenses away....

On second thought, why not take yours away too, what's good for one side is good for the other....

DUDE...IT'S A FRIGGIN CAR! In a few years it won't be worth crap...what the h3ll are you getting bent out of shape about? Leave in the garage if it's that precious to you..drive a junker around.

You are correct..I own (OWN) a 16 year old van...runs great..I opened up the door of it the other day at the library and put a huge dent in the door..so what! I have so many more things in my life (not material) that I put effort into..I really think you need a hug or something.

I love the way destinyone saw fit to compare having a child with a scratch
On a car, so you had a kid, big deal, you're not the first and won't be the last

Some women need to understand that cars are important to some people, just because
You don't care about yours doesn't mean you can treat anyone else's with
Disrespect

Oh and doing your make up while driving isn't cool either

dear original poster,

girls don't like dumb sexist j-offs that say women shouldn't drive - especially girls who drive better than you. you will need to remember this if you ever want females to stop avoiding you like the plague. also, how many accidents have you been in? because i've been in none. not a single one. not even the kind you just described - where some moron doesn't know how to park between the lines and gets his s**t scratched up when the driver in a neighboring car tries to get out. you obviously do not know how to drive OR park, which probably doesn't reflect well on the chopshop you're greasing it up in. so maybe YOU should take a break from operating a car. it'll be just like in Driving Miss Daisy! doesn't that sound exciting?
