James and Mel come home to the damage...

As noted previously, Mark got into a fender bender while James and I were on vacation. Multiple lessons have been learned during this process. Won't go through all of them now but here are a few:

1. If you have a bad feeling about something don't do it.

2. If you don't have insurance- get it (THANK GOD we had insurance)
3 If it doesn't look THAT bad- wait till you get the estimate (ouch)
5. If you have a teenage son that wants to borrow a vehicle- DON'T DO IT!!!
In all fairness to Mark, he is a good driver but when you are not familiar with a freeway during RUSH HOUR- take a side street especially in Phoenix!

Do you want to place a wager on how much the insurance estimate came back for? Leave your wager in the comments and in about a week or so I will give bragging rights to the person with the closest guess.....

Wow, know what this feels like 3 x over.
I am estimating this damage at about $7,250.
Teenagers, gotta love em or we would lose our minds.

hmmm... That is a lot of damage and I have an unfair advantage, lets say: around$10K.

I would estimate it to be around $11,000 or more.

Our accident "totaled our car"
