Default Filthy, rotten, no good, lil bastards!

My truck got a rock thrown at it today from a school bus that was next to me waiting on a stoplight. I didn't see the kid throw it. Got a nice dinged door, scratched to the bare metal!

I am the type of guy that will park 200 yards away in a parking lot to avoid this type of damage!

Thanks I feel better....-whew-

I would call the school and give them the bus number. That will at least get their attention.

Take a deep breath, relax, and forget about it. Blowing a fuse won't help your health and won't undo the damage or catch the culprit.

Sorry about that....

I feel better. The optimist in me says at least it wasn't a .223 round.
It happened so fast by the time I pulled over to verify the damage the bus was long gone...No bus number.
The weekend is almost here, pretty weather..... and I am gonna wash her anyways!

Well......maybe ya can buff 'er out.....?

Guess you can always be glad that it didn't bust a window....

Get out and enjoy the pretty weather. Life's too short to worry TOO much about a rock thrown at a car. However I CAN understand your frustration.......

Little turds.

Hey birdy, if it is down to the metal, put a little clear finger nail polish on it until you get it fixed.

I feel your pain. A few years ago, I had just picked up a brand new Suburban, and, like you, will park well away from everybody to avoid dings. Well, I went to a shopping center, and parked on the outer edges of the lot, with no car within 50 yards of me. As I got to the entrance to the store, I turned around to just glance back at my new ride, when a woman in a truck pulled up RIGHT BESIDE ME, flung open her door, and I could tell she nailed me. Put a long, vertical crease in the middle of the passenger door!

WTF is WRONG with people? Anyways, like I said... I feel your pain.

LOL... I had a friend who had a similar experience with his (then) brand new '94 RAM. In his case, it was a real ogre, a Rosanne Barr look-alike who'd chosen to park next to him. She left a nasty ding in his cab behind the door, and then trudged off, without so much as checking to see if she'd done any damage. My friend saw the whole thing, shook his head in disgust, asked me to stand lookout, pulled out, backed up, swing around, and center punched the driver's door of her oaf-mobile with his drop-hitch.

I drove a school bus for about a year and a half, Good test to see if you've really quit drinking.

Call the school and give them a time and location. They will know what bus was there. The bus probably has a video of the kids and they can see who did it, then they can call the parents (probably wont give you the name) and maybe square things up.

Went to visit my daughter at college in Myrtle Beach. Turned out to be homecoming night. While I was inside some turd WALKED on the hood of my wife's one month old car. I was mega pissed. The good part was it is considered vandalism and the insurance was only $100 deductable and doesn't effect your rates. Sorry for your pain.

Birdy I don't think there is a decent person alive that wouldn't feel you pain!

You know, that school bus will travel that road every day at approx. the same time - then you can get a bus number!

Talk with your dealership and ask them if they know of anyone that does light dent removal? I know up here we have a light dent service performed by I think it's called the "Dent Guy"? Either way that's all these guys do, they pull out dents for around 50 - 100 bucks each.

Steve is right, finger nail polish is good....do you not have any touch up paint from when you bought the truck? I know my last few vehicles all came with some. .....a little dab of touch up paint looks a hell'va lot better then a rust spot in 6 to 9 months.

About twenty-five years ago while riding a motorcycle, I took a coke can to the side of the helmet while passing a school bus. What I found out was, an empty coke can will ring your bell at 65 mph. I was so dand glad to be alive I couldn't even get mad.

What he said. Glad you're OK, but there's a numbnuts kid on that bus that needs to be taught a lesson so that somebody else doesn't get seriously hurt. Most of the kids on that bus know who did it. Call the school. See if you can save someone else from having the same thing happen to them - or worse.

That really sucks. But not as bad as that poor woman who got her entire face crushed by a frozen turkey some idiot kid threw. The receipt for the turkey was still in the bag and was found in her car. They caught the little ba$tard.

I think the actual translation is that he thinks his Ferrari is nicer than your truck. Wonder how he would feel about "just a scratch" in his Ferrari?
