My unfortunate friday

Friday I decided to get my oil changed. I took it to a new place because I met the manager a few weeks ago and he seemed really cool. I also realized after talking to him for a while, that I really should be taking my car to his shop because he knows his about VW's.

Anyway, i drop my car off and while i was waiting for my ride one of the employee's back another customers car into mine!

My back left quarter panel got scrapped and dented along with my bumper.

Well, those guys are taking care of me i guess. My car is in the body shop and i should get it back my Wednesday. Plus, i got a free oil change ($70)

I'm glad it is good motorcycle weather today and tomorrow.
