Our car was offically paid off today and....

when taking my son to school today, I accidently had it in drive instead of reverse and ran over a parking bump. I then put it back in reverse and when I backed up it tore my front bumper. I knew something like this would happen. I know it could have been worse, but that did dampen my happiness of having it paid off. Have you ever paid something off and then something happened to it?

  • No,t really. Sorry your happiness was dampened. At least you have the money from the car payments you don't have now to use to repair it.
