Standing in line in the bank yesterday when a woman walked in and told me that someone just hit my bike which was parked in the bank's parking lot and knocked it over. She told me a LAWYER hit it, apparently not seeing it in the parking space. The guy out of the car, picked up the bike with someone's help, got back into the car and drove of. Luckily it's a small island and almost everybody knows everybody. So the woman told me the name of the lawyer. Thank god no major damage, only a scratched left rear flasher and scratched helmet. But I was pissed that he just took off without saying anything or leaving a note. Anyway, met with him last evening and the guy had the nerves to tell me that he thought there was no damage to the bike. I told him I was happy that he knows my bike so well but asked him about the scratched flasher and helmet to which he responded "no big deal". I was not very friendly to the guy after his comment. Told him I insist on a new flasher since I really take good care of my bikes and don't see any reason why I should drive around with a scratched flasher. The flasher is about $45 in US. Add shipping, duty and handling to the island and we are talking about $200. For the inconvenience I added another $50. As he hesitated I told him that we also can walk over to the police station which is just 50 yards away. He decided to pay. But I am still pissed, he as a lawyer really should know better.
