My sister LOVES my Passat. She wanted one when it came out, hated me when I got mine, and still wants one. But she never drove one. She always wants to drive it and I never let her. I don't let anyone drive my car. I live in NYC, and NYC is a crazy place to drive and park. My sister drives an older C-Class to the train station to go to Manhattan everyday since it is small and she really does not care if it gets scratched or not. I went to Florida for Labor Day weekend, 5 days in total. So, the 5 days I was not in Brooklyn, I let my sister, who is older then me (and who works for Louie Vuitton Corporate and has money but is cheap as hell) use my car. She let me use her cars when I was younger and she was daddys little girl and daddy always gave her something nice to drive, so I returned the favor. I told her to not treat it like her car, and to please take my bumper bully out of the trunk before you park so you don't scratch my bumper.
I thought at her age she would be responsible enough to listen when I say use the bumper bully before you start parking. But no, and she puts a lovely gouge in the bumper. It looked like she backed into a car with a nice round phillips license plate screw and kept it parked there. And this is after I told her about 10 times to pull out the bumper bully. I take pictures and show her and she denies it. I open my trunk, and my bumper bully was not even visible. It was buried under my work clothes that I left in the car the before I left. I told her that and she still said she used it. As I am talking to her, I notice a bright orange piece of paper on the table which is ticket with 2012 WHITE VOLKS $65.00 on it. She tells me that she is going to pay the ticket, and for the bumper. I took the ticket and paid it because I know her and it would sit on her table for 6 months. But I am wondering if I should get $300 from her later and told her I pained the bumper. Meanwhile I already touched it up and it now it looks fine.
What I got out of this whole situation: Do not let your sister, younger or older, girlfriend, wife, father, mother, aunt, grandmother, grandfather, or anyone drive your car if you care about it.
