Iíd be ticked too. It happened to me when a guy towing a boat hit the corner of my truck, denting it. I was getting change at the car wash, he drove out, hit it, and immediately took off. Which indicates he KNEW he had hit something.

If you have comprehensive imsurance coverage, that should help but there will still be a deductible, unless you chose a more expensive premium to have zero deductible. I found a body shop that fixed the dent at reasonable charge, so I didnít even file a claim.

Good morning good people

I decided to join this chat group instead of starting a new thread about something that has probably already been discussed.

I have had trouble sleeping. And that has led to me being a cranky witch. Almost everyone i associate with gets on my nerves.

Well i finally slept like a log last night and i feel so much better. I also skipped our usual Saturday night get together. Maybe that helped me sleep too. I would come home just ticked off at the usual conversations. All female group and they will complain about the grandkids they take care of, the church and if they have a husband - complain about him

It would probably be better if we discussed politics -lol

I thought i can't continue to sit there and grin and smile when they drive me up the wall. I will slowly have to cut myself loose from this crowd. It includes two siblings. We just don't have the same interests.

Ok - i feel better telling someone. Guess this will be the start of a new adventure

My car is also fiberglass and got scratched pretty good at the chiropractors' office -- twice. The guilty party was the white van I had parked beside -- the second time because that was the only place to park.

That white van belonged to the chiro's late 70's mother who shouldn't have been driving, judging by all the dents in the van

No, I didn't say anything --- this chiro is one of the best East of the Mississippi and I would not be walking and mucking stalls without his help. Thankfully tiny little munchkin Mummy Dearest doesn't drive herself to the clinic anymore.

I wish we had a smilie for giving people hugs. I'd send you a few, because I've been there and done that, too. Sometimes skipping a group that is getting on your nerves can be the best medicine. The same goes for city-data forums (or threads). A little time away can work miracles.

Here in Philly it was sunny and a warm 76 degrees ... yesterday. Today it is a cooler and drizzly day.


Two days ago I turned off and shut down the home heating furnace. Today I'm packing away my winter clothes - sweaters, flannel shirts. etc. The warmer season here is from April 1st until Nov. 1st.

Since I transitioned into "semi-retirement" 5 months ago and my daily schedule is much less structured now my sleep habits have gone haywire. A High School classmate of mine, who lives up in New England now, says she plays a game called "Nap Roulette." When she takes a nap she does not set the alarm clock. She wakes up not knowing if she napped for 30 minutes or 4 hours!!! My naps are more predictable, never shorter than almost an hour and never longer than 2 hours.

I try to nap once a day. I napped all afternoon yesterday and slept like a log all night!

I feel so much better.
