I hate people who do really really stupid things while they are drunk. My so called best friend is the king of doing stuff like this.

Last night we went to his house to celebrate his birthday, we were having a great time, and decided to move the party to a bar. So we were in his driveway waiting for a cab, when he jumps in his piece of **** car and backs it into the front bumper of my 2009 Pontiac Vibe GT. ****in idiot.

Now what do you do?? Can't go through insurance, can't call the cops....he doesn't have the money to fix it. Man I am pissed. Now I am stuck with the bill to fix it. Might have to sell my skidoo. What a yahoo. He is 33 years old, and it is time for him to grow the **** up.

He'd be paying for it, if he was my friend. Otherwise, he'd no longer be a friend. A true friend would own up to it though and do whatever it takes to rectify the situation. Payments, even if takes awhile.

If he can't pay for it, maybe he could work it off, like mowing your grass for a year. I think it would build resentment over time.

Small claims court might be an option if you dis-own him.

That's down right $hitty, and it sucks to be you.

Thirty-Three is too old to be screwing over a "best friend." It's one thing to be a jackhole at 19, and maybe even expected. It's all part of the experience. Been there. But at 33 a guy needs to make it right. If he doesn't then he's no friend.

Just my old man's opinion.

Its drivable right??? Let it go until one you can save up to fix it. I would NOT sell one of my toys to fix a friend's screw-up.

The longer it goes unfixed, the more guilty he might feel about the thing. I'd park the thing in his driveway today and let him ponder on how fix the situation.

If I left it in his driveway he would probably just back into it again. Dude has had everything given to him in life. The car he drives is his mom's car, his parents gave him his house, he doesn't understand what it is like to buy something and own it himself.

The car is drivable, I don't know the extent of the damage yet, but that doesn't even matter, regardless he is a dill hole in my eyes.

Its still a bit early, have you talked to him today yet?

Was he coherent at all after he did it or was he 3 sheets to the wind? Prolly had no business going to the bar, but functional enough to crawl into a car.

I'm guessing it was blackout time, he might not believe what happened. If that's the case he might feel alot of guilt, if not, you don't need a friend like that.

If mom and dad give him everything I'd get an estimate and give it to him, and or his parents. If he is a friend he'll figure out a way to fix it. You could always go through insurance if you're willing to alter your story, cops likely wouldn't respond to a fender bender on private property anyway so how do they know when and how it happened?

So why can't you turn it in to your insurance? How will they know you saw it happen?

Well I saw him today, he wouldn't talk to me, he wouldn't even look at me. I tried to call him, but he won't answer. He is pretty immature if you ask me. I will wait a few days and see what he does.

I checked the damage today and it is mostly cosmetic, I think if I put a license plate on the front, then you wouldn't even notice it. I don't feel like going through insurance because it will raise my insurance.

I backed into a friends car once. Sober, if that makes it any better. It was late and the damage was cosmetic. We decided to call my insurance in the morning. I did. Told them I just slap backed into the car. Thought I had more room. They had her bring her car in for an estimate and paid for the repair. That's it. No cops. No investigation.
