    after having my permit for a good couple of weeks, i backed up into a curb and fucked up the bottom and side of teh infiniti g35...

    i feel like a stupid douche for making such a mistake...
    and im asking if anyone ever went through a similar situation, simply to build my own self esteem [​IMG]

    Atleast you didn't run up a tree and flip it over.













    Like my brother did.

    Well don't feel bad I have been driving for 13 years and my experience is as follows:

    1) Was parking my car and drove to far ahead and scratched the bottom of my car on a concrete curb

    2) went the up a wrong way street (Lucky for me no one was coming the other way)

    3) Recently my wife was talking to me while I was backing up in a parking lot and I ran over a warning sign.

    So don't feel bad......Come to think about it my wife was with me all three times hmmmmm Mabey it wasn't me lol

    There's nothing like that feeling of stupidity the first time you bump something.

    I hit the "Insert ticket here" pillar of a car-park exit barrier. As if that wasn't embarrassing enough, there was an attendant standing there to insert tickets for people who failed to get close enough after the insanely sharp exit turn.

    This is why new drivers shouldn't have fancy shmancy cars. The majority of new drivers will have a bump or a scrape or two.

    Get an old banger and get used to the road!

    [M]artin, I really hope when you get that first bump, you're just parking, not speeding.

    I've got one friend who clipped wing-mirrors (side-view?) with someone else, both doing around sixty mph (he got fined and points for driving without due care and attention).
    And another who rolled his car into a field on a sharp turn, with four passengers (declared the car scrap to the insurers, and had to pay the farmer whose fence he destroyed).

    Both blindingly lucky not to have killed anyone, least of all themselves, but with the roads round here (mountains) you generally get a young driver every couple of months who becomes one with their car, for as long as it takes the fire-brigade to cut the body from the wreckage.

    I don't mind so much when it's just a tree, or an unwieldy corner, but as often as not it's some unlucky bastard going the other way.

    It's great that you can die doing what you love. It really is. Try not to take anyone with you.

    Don't feel bad.... everyone has these little scrapes and bumps. I should know... I run an appraisal company {Orange Star Appraisal - yeah.. the name is from Advance Wars}. I look at about 5-6 cars monday through friday. Lots of people crash, and lots of people have little scuffs/bumps etc. That's why there are insurance companies. They will gladly compensate you for the damage to this loss.. (well depending on your company). If you want any advice, PM me. I look at claims for some large insurance companies as well as a lot of smaller ones. Just try and learn from the experience, that's the best thing you can do when you make a mistake.
