While parked at school on Thursday, somebody hit my car and fled the scene without leaving a note of any kind. Fortunately for me, somebody witnessed the whole thing and left a note under my windshield wiper with the offender’s license plate number and their (the witness) personal cell phone number for use when I filed a report with the campus police.
So, I filed a report with the campus police, showed them the damage done to my car, the note left on my car, and the subsequent text messages I made back and forth between myself and the mystery person who left their number and within a matter of 3 hours the campus police had not only tracked the offender down but had received a full confession and initiated the insurance process by requesting the offender call the insurance company while she was still at the campus police HQ.
What normally would have gone unpunished and would have ended up costing me $500.00+ to get repaired is now, thanks to a still unnamed good Samaritan, isn’t going to cost me a penny. I even offered to buy this person a $25.00 iTunes giftcard as a reward, which was politely refused, and was told “I’m just glad everything worked out alright!” Since I cannot directly reward the actions of this awesome person, I will instead follow the example they have set and go out of my way to leave a note with as much info as I can the next time I witness an accident of any kind.
