Talking Idiot Range Rover

So we were up at our cabin last weekend and there was about 4 feet of snow. The cabin is on a one lane street, hilly and icy. My wife and I were shoveling the driveway and the Excursion’s rear bumper was slightly sticking out in the road, which was a solid ice, hilly road. A mental giant in a brand new Range Rover was starting to come down the hill.

Me “Wait two minutes and I’ll pull all the way in the driveway.”
Him “No, it’s ok, I got it.”
Me “It’s REALLY icy here, just wait two minutes.”
Him “No, I got it.”
Me “Bad idea”
Him “I know what I’m doing”

As his Range Rover starts to lose traction, he starts to slide to the back of the Ex, just as I thought he would. He makes first contact to me on the my driver’s side back bumper corner with his front fender, just past the front turn signal light. The crease continued as he continued to slide. The crease went from the front of his front fender, through the driver’s door, the back seat door, the rear panel and then broke his taillight. So a big crease on the ENTIRE side and a busted taillight and not even a scratch on the Excursion. He gets out, stares at his damage for a minute, then walks over to me and asks what damage I have. I told him I didn’t even have a scratch .

My neighbor then yells from his balcony “Just couldn’t wait two minutes, huh?”

Mr. Range Rover then left with a seriously damaged ego.

No, unfortunately no pics. I wish I had one of the Range Rover and one of the look on his face when he got out and saw his damage, would have been priceless.
