I TOTALLY agree with people disrespecting cars! I was raised around muscle cars so my dad tought me at an early age to repect cars! When im at a show, and I have anything that would scratch a car(watch, lanyard, rivets on jeans, jacet zipper, or keys) I will alays protect with my hand or put it behind my back if possible. To say the least, I am prob one of the most careful people around cars! I had a EF civic a few years ago with a VERY straight body and cought some random person sitting on my fender. Those fenders can damn near bend with a strong gust of wind. I confronted him and he wanted to get all smart ass and totally didint understand the real reason why I asked him to get off! So Chris, I have been in the exact same situation as you. But to get upset from the "dick" comment is kinda childish. Im a firm believer in karma. . . . let it play out naturally!

It's not a matter of being upset by bulligerance, moreso than ignorance. If I was standing on your foot, and you asked me to move because it was causing a problem, and I said, "ok, dick, gah!", wouldn't you have the attitude of, "It's only my foot... it's my property and you're smashing it..."

I would. I view it as the same scenario. If it's not yours, don't touch it. It's not a matter of someone simple leaning on my car, it's a matter that if it gets dented (which it can very easily), that it costs money for me to make it right. People don't seem to understand that this car is as fragile as an S2000 as far as body metal is concerned, especially on the rear quarter panels. If you put weight on them, they compress. The door skins are the same deal. Front fenders are a little different, but the car is really fragile as far as dents/dings, so I plan to make sure that nothing happens unless it's absolutely unavoidable.
Thats not what I was saying! I was simply stating that you are better than her by letting her childish comment go. By trying to retaliate or get mad at her comment, your stooping down to her level. Like I stated before, by any means is it right to disrespect somones property whatever it is! What you did was totally understandable, but to carrry it on and be upset at the dick comment is childish. If we all really knew what people said behind our backs, this world would be a bitter place! Just face it people who have no understanding of the value of property wouldnt understand any of the topics in this thread, and would prob be the ones to mumble a smart ass comment behind your back!
