well, today i was taking my car to valvoline for an oil change (my dad had a coupon to get it done for free, or else i would have just done it). the lady inside was waving me in, telling me i had clearance with my front bumper and all. well, theres a little lip around the edge of the pit thing where the mechanics are (see picture), and i guess i didnt have nearly enough clearance. and she directed me right into it. and now my front bumper is cracked. i ducktaped the bottom, and used touch-up paint where the paint chipped off, but its still there. and i have no time to get it into the shop before i leave for college, so it has to stay this way until i store it for winter and can get the front bumper in for fiberglass work and repair. and because i was driving the car, they arent going to do anything to help cover costs... i know my situation isnt NEARLY as bad as Andy's or Diane's or Dan's, but i, too, have had some bad luck recently.
