Well kind of! I work at a grocery and last night the wind was blowing real bad. I thought i parked where i was ok, but i guess not. A shopping cart flew into my car giving me a scratch on my back bumber, 3 dents on my driver side door, and it folded my driver side mirror in. I also have a lot of black marks along the side of my car from the shopping cart. It is cold and snowy here so i am not yet able to tell how it will look after i try to clean up all the marks. Man i actualy cried for a while!

Can you see into the future or have you perhaps been there? Because next time, if you go or think about it, can you take me/tell me what is going to happen?

Thanks in advance.

Sorry to hear about the car, YT.

This is why I always take the time to clear the area of any rogue shopping "buggys" within a 50 foot radius of my car...especially on windy days. I'll either take the time to take them to their corrals, or lift it up over a curb so that it doesn't go anywhere. Better safe than sorry.

Well i work at the grocery store and was there for about 5 hours. I park really far away near a curb to prevent any damage from anything. But if one person leaves there shopping cart in the parking lot with the wind, its all over! I am wondering if a paintless dent repair can fix it or not????

Sorry to hear about your car young tibby. Hopefully it's not too bad.

Sidenote: I called it a buggy too until once when I was in college this girl was like" what's a buggy?" Then I started saying "shopping cart." And I have lived in Michigan all my life.
